Biotech Stock News ; ARCA biopharma (Nasdaq: ABIO ) Announces Patent Issued for Treating Heart Failure Patients with Bucindolol Based on Genetic Testing


Revised Request for FDA Special Protocol Assessment for GencaroTM Development in Genotype-defined Heart Failure Population Submitted

BROOMFIELD, Colo.--(INVESTORIDEAS.COM NEWSWIRE)--ARCA biopharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABIO ), a biopharmaceutical company developing genetically targeted therapies for heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a patent on methods of treating heart failure patients with bucindolol based on genetic testing. The patent (USP# 7,678,824) entitled “Methods for Treatment with Bucindolol Based on Genetic Targeting,” provides protection in the United States for this novel approach to treating patients with heart failure, one of the largest health care problems in the United States and the rest of the world. ARCA had previously announced the notice of allowance of this patent. Industry sources estimate that approximately 5.7 million Americans have heart failure and nearly 670,000 new patients are diagnosed annually. In addition, heart failure is the underlying reason for approximately 12 to 15 million annual visits to physicians, 6.5 million annual hospital days and over $37 billion in direct and indirect healthcare costs in the United States.



“We are obviously pleased with the USPTO’s issuance of this patent which we believe will extend our pharmacogenetic intellectual property protection around bucindolol and, if approved for marketing, provide Gencaro market exclusivity into 2025,” said Michael R. Bristow, President and Chief Executive Officer of ARCA. “Chronic heart failure continues to be a major health care problem, and among the challenges to improving care is the uncertainty of patient responses to drug treatment. We believe that a new heart failure therapy that includes a simple test to identify a substantial subpopulation of patients more likely to benefit has the potential to help alleviate some of the problems encountered with the current standard of practice.”



On March 25, 2010, ARCA submitted a revised clinical study protocol for review under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) process for the design of a clinical trial to assess the safety and efficacy of Gencaro in approximately 3,200 patients with chronic heart failure who have the genotype that appears to respond most favorably to Gencaro. An SPA is an agreement with the FDA that the proposed trial protocol design, clinical endpoints and statistical analyses are acceptable to support regulatory approval. Any proposed trial protocol must be reviewed and agreed upon with the FDA and the final trial protocol may be significantly different from the Company’s SPA submission. If ARCA obtains sufficient funding and FDA approval of the SPA, ARCA currently expects it could begin the proposed clinical trial approximately one year after such funding and approval. The FDA has previously designated as a Fast Track development program the investigation of Gencaro for the reduction of cardiovascular mortality and cardiovascular hospitalizations in a genotype-defined heart failure population.



About GencaroTM



GencaroTM (bucindolol hydrochloride) is a pharmacologically unique beta-blocker and mild vasodilator being developed for the treatment of chronic heart failure (HF). Gencaro is an oral tablet formulation, dosed twice daily. Gencaro is considered part of the beta-blocker class because of its property of blocking beta-1 as well as beta-2 receptors in the heart, preventing these receptors from binding with other molecules that would otherwise activate the receptor. Because of its mild vasodilator effects, the Company believes Gencaro is well-tolerated in patients with advanced HF.



About ARCA biopharma



ARCA biopharma is dedicated to developing genetically-targeted therapies for heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases. The Company's lead product candidate, GencaroTM (bucindolol hydrochloride), is an investigational, pharmacologically unique beta-blocker and mild vasodilator being developed for heart failure. ARCA has identified common genetic variations that it believes predict individual patient response to Gencaro, giving it the potential to be the first genetically-targeted heart failure treatment. ARCA is collaborating with Laboratory Corporation of America to develop the companion genetic test for Gencaro.

Valcent Products (OTCBB: VCTZF) VertiCrop high density vertical growth system technology addresses water use



WWW.Water-Stocks.com Discusses Water footprint of Agriculture for World Water Day

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC –March 19, 2010 Investorideas.com and its water investor portal, www.Water-Stocks.com, report on the virtual water footprint of agriculture for World Water Day, March 22 .

One company working at providing a partial solution is Valcent Products Inc. (OTCBB: VCTZF), with its VertiCrop high density vertical growth system technology. Chris Bradford, CEO of Valcent Products Inc noted “ World Water Day is becoming increasingly important in creating awareness of severe shortages of potable and useable water in most places in the world. In this regard, Valcent’s two core business plans to market both the Verticrop and Alphacrop is timely in that these high density vertical growing systems save up to 95% of the water used in a field crop to produce the same amount of vegetables. This sustainable water savings is becoming more critical in many drought areas which in turn has an impact on food security as well. “


The overall goal of the World Water Day on 22 March 2010 campaign is to raise the profile of water quality at the political level so that water quality considerations are made alongside those of water quantity. As issues of water quality and water scarcity are addressed; agriculture having one of the greatest impacts on the global water footprint is a primary topic of concern.



According to Thomas M. Kostigen, author of "The Green Blue Book: The Simple Water-Savings Guide to Everything in Your Life", being released on World Water Day, March 22; “It takes about 123 gallons of water to grow a pound of oats, for example. So the virtual water count of this pound of oats is 123 gallons. Now, extend this to a slice of beef. Since cattle have to feed on oats or some other grain and obviously need to drink water themselves, their virtual water count is higher than that of what they chew. It also takes water to process their meat. The virtual water footprint of a pound of beef, therefore, is 1,500 gallons. When you understand that there's a virtual water count to producing everything -- a beer (20 gallons), a glass of wine (30 gallons), a cup of coffee (37 gallons), a cup of tea (5 gallons), a car (39,000 gallons), a bicycle (480 gallons) -- you can make water-smart choices.”

More info on the Green Blue Book: http://www.thegreenbluebook.com/


Mrs. Margaret Catley-Carlson, Chair of the Global Agenda Council on Water Security commenting on WATER PERSPECTIVES FROM DAVOS 2010 reports, “A major new exercise on a Vision for Agriculture attracted most of the world’s elite Food Production people; water was a frequently mentioned, together with (still nascent) ideas on how to support the efforts to use less water yet grow more food.”

Full article: http://www.maximsnews.com/news20100217catleycarlsondavos11002170801.htm



The reason this is such an urgent issue is explained at www.Worldchanging.com, “Global crop production requires more than 6 trillion cubic meters of water each year, with nearly a quarter of supplies flowing to rice paddies. Livestock production requires the most water resources in the food chain. One hamburger, for instance, needs 2,400 liters of water on average.”

Lohas Trending; Oprah and Ellen Show Topics this Week Include Healthier Food Choices

POINT ROBERTS, Wash., Delta, B.C.–March 12 , 2010 - www.InvestorIdeas.com, a global investor research portal covering over twenty research sectors, specializing in environment and water , adds updated content and columns to the recently created Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) Investing section .

Food and health issues were leading topics on both Oprah and the Ellen Show this week.

On Thursday Oprah’s guest feature, The Truth about Food- Food 101 with Michael Pollan, examines what and how North Americans eat. Michael Pollan states “Mass-produced foods also line the shelves of nearly every grocery aisle.”A lot of what you see in the supermarket I would argue is not really food," Michael says. "It's what I call edible, food-like substances."
http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/The-Truth-About-Food-with-Michael-Pollan/2

Ellen DeGeneres featured guest Jonathan Safron Foer discussing “Eating Animals” and how reading his book had impacted viewers to make changes in their eating patterns.

This trend will create investing opportunities for investors betting on healthy lifestyle and sustainable trends.

Investorideas.com will be adding new Bakken Stocks Directory to our oil and gas stocks directory this week
North American Bakken Oil Field Play - covering parts of Montana, North Dakota, and Saskatchewan.

The USGS estimate of 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in the Bakken Formation, and a mean estimate of 3.65 billion barrels, is an estimate of what industry may recover if the entire area of prospective Bakken Formation is produced using current technology. The current USGS mean estimate is a 25-fold increase over the previous USGS estimate, in 1995, of 151 million barrels of undiscovered technically recoverable oil in the Bakken Formation. As of August 2009, cumulative oil production from the Bakken Formation totaled about 190 million barrels (up from 164 million barrels in March 2009, 149 million barrels in December 2008 and 135 million barrels in September 2008).
