ABTA: Forecasts 80,000 New Cases of Primary Brain Tumors This Year
Brain cancers seem to not receive the same level of attention and awareness as other forms of the disease. However, in July 2017, Arizona Senator John McCain announced that he had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, glioblastoma. Glioblastomas are the most common form of brain cancer in adults today.
“Glioblastoma can be difficult to treat. Average survival for malignant glioblastoma tends to be about 14 months with treatment,” says Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a practicing neurosurgeon.
As first-line treatments continue to focus on chemotherapy and radiation, medical professionals are increasingly searching for more advanced methods to treat these forms of cancer.
"The brain tumor community is very united in our quest for finding better treatments for our patients, and I think the progress will come through clearly planned and orchestrated clinical trials, looking at both approaches, immunotherapies and appropriate uses of targeted therapies, which will go and attack the genes that drive a particular tumor," says Dr. Manmeet Ahluwalia, a brain tumor oncologist and director of the brain metastasis program at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.
According to the American Brain Tumor Association, an estimated 80,000 new cases of primary brain tumors will  be diagnosed this year. Another 17,000 people are estimated to lose their battle with a primary brain or CNS tumor this year.
According to GBI Research, global revenues for the cancer vaccine market are forecast to grow from $2.5 billion in 2015 to $7.5 billion in 2022, which represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.93%.
Innovest Signs LOI to Acquire 20% Stake in StemVax, LLC, a Biotech Company Working On Brain Cancer Vaccine
Innovest Global recently announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire a 20% stake in StemVax, LLC, a biotechnology company that is currently developing a brain cancer vaccine.
The StemVax Glioblast (SVX-GB) cancer vaccine is being designed and formulated to help restore a patient’s immune system in order to fight off existing cancer cells within the body.
Adding to the excitement of the deal is the fact that Innovest Global’s very own Dr. Dwain Morris-Irvin is the founder and CEO of StemVax, LLC. Dr. Dwain is the CEO of Innovest’s new Biotechnology & Health Sciences Division.
“Innovest is uniquely equipped to provide immeasurably important elements to StemVax that kick things off for StemVax and dramatically improve its potential for success. This is true for other technologies we will encounter, as well. The best way I can show future scientists how Innovest can serve their mission, is to lead by example with my own company,” said Dr. Morris-Irvin. “Dan Martin (Innovest Global CEO) and I have been planning the business model for this division since 2017. It’s unique and will serve both technologists and Innovest well.”
Aside from biotechnology, Innovest also recently announced that its Innovest Energy Group has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire an energy business that is producing annual revenues of $1.2 million. The energy procurement acquisition target will provide the Energy Division with new technologies and synergies.
Once the energy acquisition is completed, management estimates baseline quarterly revenues of $800,000. The Energy Division alone will have more than 300 commercial and industrial clients and puts Innovest Global in perfect position while the company gets started on developing its Biotechnology & Health Sciences Division.
