Boca Raton, Fla., Nov. 23, 2020 (VIA NEWSWIRE) -- Noble Capital Markets, Inc. (“Noble”) announced today that it will host Type-1 Diabetes Day where Dr. Camillo Ricordi and a world-class panel of T1D experts will discuss progress toward a functional cure.
The virtual event “Type-1 Diabetes – The Beginning of the End; Close to a Cure?” is investor focused but will have broad appeal among all interested in the progress toward a functional cure for T1D. It is to be held November 24, 2020, at 12:30 online to all who register here.
Dr. Camillo Ricordi revolutionized a method of transplantation of islet cells (cells that produce insulin) 32 years ago. His method remains the gold standard today. The promise of overcoming one of the most challenging problems with any transplantation occurred when an anti-rejection antibody being explored for ALS was coupled with the transplantation. New islet cells had previously been rejected by the host. The anti-rejection antibody was key to this procedure jumping several steps closer to success.
The Panel will be moderated by Noble’s Nathan Cali, Managing Director, Head of Healthcare Investment and Merchant Banking, with a primary focus on the Novus Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NVUS) - CD40/CD40L - FDA Phase II toxicity and efficacy trials and ongoing progress toward a functional cure with islet cell transplantation. The world-renowned panelists include:
- Dr. Camillo Ricordi, Director of the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine – Ranked as the World Leader in Islet Cell Transplant.
- Dr. James Markmann, Chief of the Division of Transplant Surgery and Director of Clinical Operations at the Transplant Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Claude Welch Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School.
- Dr. Norma Sue Kenyon, Martin Kleiman Professor of Surgery, Microbiology and Immunology and Biomedical Engineering at the Diabetes research Institute.
- Dr. David Gros, Chief Executive Officer Novus Therapeutics; Dr. Steven Perrin, President & CSO, Novus Therapeutics.
- Eric Paslay, two-time Grammy award nominee country recording artist, & owner of The Country Note, a podcast featuring patients who battle diabetes.
November is Diabetes Awareness Month; this expert panel presentation will elevate awareness for investors and others interested in promising progress toward a functional cure for T1D. The presentation is expected to last two hours and will be held at 12:30 PM (register to attend) on November 24, 2020. Attendance is open and at no cost to all who register for T1D-Day. As conference time is limited, Noble requests that only investment focused attendees participate by asking questions of the panelists.
