Oak Crest Receives $20 Million Grant to Develop Drug Delivery System to Prevent HIV Infection in Women
August 13, 2014 (Pasadena, CA) – Researchers at the Oak Crest Institute of Science announced that they have been awarded a $20 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to systematically develop an intravaginal ring capable of delivering powerful antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted HIV in women.
After more than 40 years of research, prevention of HIV infection continues to be a critical global health priority. According to the World Health Organization, there are some 35 million people living with HIV in the world today. Approximately 70 percent of all people living with HIV are from Sub-Saharan Africa.
Intravaginal rings, currently available commercially for contraception and hormone replacement therapy, have shown promise as a drug delivery system to prevent HIV infection. However, most designs currently under investigation cannot deliver multiple-drug combinations of the many available antiretroviral drugs developed to combat HIV infection. While combinations of three antiretroviral drugs are highly successful in treatment of HIV infection, their use in an intravaginal ring platform has not been possible until now. Furthermore, the best combination of drugs to prevent sexual HIV infection is not known.
“This Program will allow us, for the first time, to rigorously test a large group of antiretroviral drugs in a systematic fashion so that we can determine what combination is best for preventing sexual HIV via vaginal delivery,” said principal investigator, Marc Baum, Ph.D., president and senior faculty at Oak Crest. “This project is, in large part, enabled by our pod-intravaginal ring (pod-IVR) platform. We have shown that the platform can deliver five different drugs simultaneously and at independently controlled dosages, which is unlike any other device under development today. In addition, the modular design of our pod-IVRs allows us to accelerate the development of prototypes, a critical element to testing many combinations as part of this Program,” he added. “Our technology platform also has the crucial advantage of scalability in manufacturing as the majority of the fabrication steps are identical regardless of the drug substances in the combination. This scalability and potential for economical manufacture will be crucial for any product to be used in the developing world.”
This five-year grant is funded under the NIH U19 Program, a mechanism that funds collaborative projects involving multiple institutions. Oak Crest is the lead institution in this collaboration that also includes teams of researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the University of Texas Medical Branch, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, the University of Colorado, Boulder, Scripps Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, Vanderbilt University, Miriam Hospital and Auritec Pharmaceuticals. “We are fortunate to be part of a stellar team of investigators from all over the country. Through this partnership, I feel confident that we will meet our goal of using a novel screening process to scientifically determine the best-performing candidates in order to advance them rapidly into clinical trials,” said Dr. Baum.
Oak Crest has already reached significant milestones in this scientific arena by becoming the first to successfully administer Truvada, the only FDA approved regimen for HIV prevention, from an IVR. This milestone was accomplished in collaboration with the CDC where the novel pod-IVRs were evaluated in pig-tailed macaques over a 28-day period.
Sustained release approaches to drug delivery for the prevention of HIV infection, such as the pod-IVR, is especially appealing for use in the developing world, in contrast to daily therapies, where adherence is often an issue. Such devices are less expensive on a per-patient, per-day basis, they are capable of both rapid and sustained drug delivery for at least a month, and they sustain their effectiveness without refrigeration, an important consideration for use in resource-limited settings.
“The significance of this research is profound. Our goal is to empower women to protect themselves from HIV infection with the best biomedical solution,” said Dr. Baum. “The foundation we have already laid, coupled with the results from this innovative study, will help us accelerate the development of this pre-exposure prophylactic device,” said Dr. Baum. “This process is especially important when considering that for each year we delay, close to a million women in sub-Saharan Africa alone could become infected,” he added.

Crawling Insect Control Dust with Free Hand Duster Organic, Safe, and Long-Lasting Insect Elimination Our Organic Crawling Insect Control Dust is 100% Diatomaceous Earth, which is composed of finely milled fossilized shells of microscopic organisms called diatoms. It is a light dust that clings easily to the bodies of insects as they walk or crawl over it. Unlike boric acid dusts that work best when ingested, Crawling Insect Control Dust only requires contact with the insect to be effective. The dust then absorbs the waxy cuticle surrounding the insect, causing the insect to dehydrate and die. Organic Crawling Insect Control Dust also has a great long term residual effect when applied to cracks and crevices.

The increasing trend is ordering online and being able to drive down to the local store and pickup your merchandise the same day.
Many stores offer this service but which ones really have it down and which ones are offering perks to those using the service.
Stores offering online ordering with store pickup:
Home Depot – offers a special parking place for those picking up online orders
Staples – have used them several times and it works, you can do ship to store for free if the item is not in stock at the store
Lowe’s – is improving their service, but as I have documented in the past, they have some things to work out. The online ordering and offerings do not match what is available in the store in many instances.
Walmart – offered
Sears – have used it several times and it works, they offer special curbside service for pickups at the store, although on a recent visit not only was the number not working, but the kiosk at the pickup area had crashed.
Target – go to customer service wait in line and pickup your order, pretty seamless.
Fry’s – ordering online is smooth, you go to one of the cashiers and show them your items to pickup and and they usually have it in the cage waiting for you.
There are many other stores offering online ordering and store pickup. We will add to the list as we collect more data and experiences.

Robin Williams Dies of Suspected Suicide
The full release from the Marin County office:
On August 11, 2014, at approximately 11:55 am, Marin County Communications received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing inside his residence in unincorporated Tiburon, CA. The Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Tiburon Fire Department and Southern Marin Fire Protection District were dispatched to the incident with emergency personnel arriving on scene at 12:00 pm. The male subject, pronounced deceased at 12:02 pm has been identified as Robin McLaurin Williams, a 63 year old resident of unincorporated Tiburon, CA.
An investigation into the cause, manner, and circumstances of the death is currently underway by the Investigations and Coroner Divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. Preliminary information developed during the investigation indicates Mr. Williams was last seen alive at his residence, where he resides with his wife, at approximately 10:00 pm on August 10, 2014. Mr. Williams was located this morning shortly before the 9-1-1 call was placed to Marin County Communications. At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made.

Note: If a storm is expected to dissipate within 5 days, its track will be shorter
This could be a one two punch, followed by tropical storm Julio, which is apparently weakening, but things could change, still it packs strong winds as a tropical storm, if it is not a hurricane classified.
It has been 22 years since a hurricane hit the Hawaiian Islands. Officials are preparing and residents are bracing for flooding, power outages, mudslides, high winds, in particular on the big island of Hawaii.
Iselle is moving slowly at approx 18 MPH.
