NEWS 12/30/20 Therapeutic Solutions International Reports QuadraMune™ Increases T Cell Immunity in Animal Studies
Accumulating Data Supports Possibility of Enhanced Antiviral Immunity Using Nutraceutical Approach
OCEANSIDE, Calif., Dec. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Therapeutic Solutions International, Inc., (OTC Markets: TSOI), reported today new data demonstrating a two-week course of QuadraMune™ increased immunological parameters relevant to antiviral immunity.
In a series of experiments, the Company demonstrated that animals injected with a model antigen, keyhole limpet hemacyanin (KLH) possessed a significantly enhanced T cell response. The type of T cell response that was preferentially elicited in animals taking QuadraMune was associated with interferon gamma, a protein known to inhibit viral replication.
"Previously we have demonstrated that QuadraMune is associated with enhanced natural killer cells, which represent the innate arm of the immune system" said Dr. James Veltmeyer, Chief Medical Officer of the Company. "The demonstration that the adaptive immune response is also enhanced by QuadraMune, provides further rationale for evaluation of this nutraceutical as a preventative for COVID-19."
The Company is currently running a clinical trial in health care workers using QuadraMune to prevent COVID-19 infection. More information on the clinical trial can be found on the Federal Clinical Trials registry as #NCT04421391.
"Although there are numerous nutraceutical products on the market that claim to boost immunity, I am extremely proud that we as a company are differentiating ourselves by conducting scientific experiments to objectively validate our approach" said Famela Ramos, Vice President of Business Development.
"Our Company is based on utilizing the immune system to treat numerous chronic and degenerative conditions. Today's findings, that QuadraMune stimulates the Th1 arm of the immune system, suggests that QuadraMune may be useful for other conditions associated with immune dysregulation" said Timothy Dixon, President and CEO of the Company. "It is believed that Th1 immunity is useful not only in the treatment of viruses but also in eradication of cancer and intracellular bacterial." NEWS 12/21/20
Therapeutic Solutions International Files Patent on NeuroLeukin™ Personalized Immunotherapy for Opioid Addiction
Campbell Neurosciences Division Expands its "Regenerative Psychiatry" Approach to Address the $179 Billion Dollar Prescription Opioid Epidemic
OCEANSIDE, Calif., Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Therapeutic Solutions International, Inc., (OTC Markets: TSOI), announced today novel data and filing of a patent covering utilization of its NeuroLeukin™ product for altering molecular pathways associated with opioid addiction. In a series of animal experiments NeuroLeukin™ was demonstrated to reduce activation of TLR-4, which is one of the major innate immune pathways associated with opioid tolerance and addiction1.
It is estimated that the current opioid use epidemic costs the health care system approximately $179 Billion annually2. Campbell Neurosciences, the Company's Division focused on suicide prevention has previously filed intellectual property on utilizing NeuroLeukin™ to reduce suicidal ideations.
"The common biochemical pathways of opioid addiction and suicidal ideation should be no surprise given the inherent relationship between these two conditions," said Dr. James Veltmeyer, Chief Medical Officer of the Company and co-inventor of the patent. "Currently we have 2 clinical trials on the Federal ClinicalTrials.gov website dealing with immunological quantification of psychiatric disorders: suicide and gambling. We are excited to take NeuroLeukin™ into the clinic, which to my knowledge represents the first immunotherapeutic approach for opioid addiction."
"Immunotherapy, which at one point was considered on the fringe of medicine, has blossomed into what is expected to be a 126-billion-dollar annual market in 20263, given its recent successes in the treatment of cancer," said Famela Ramos, Vice President of Business Development and co-inventor of the patent. "We are excited to position ourselves as the potential leaders in applying immunotherapy to mental disorders, an approach that we like to call "regenerative psychiatry."
"Having seen many close friends of mine suffer the horrible effects of opioid addiction, I am proud to be co-inventor on an approach which has the potential to revolutionize the way drug addiction is seen by the medical community," said Wais Kaihani, consultant to the Company.
"I am thankful for our internationally renowned scientific advisory board, which is comprised of immunologists and neurobiologists, that have stimulated our Company to enter such an unexplored space in which very little therapeutic interventions exist," said Timothy Dixon, President and CEO of the Company and co-inventor. "We are 100% dedicated to ending the opioid crisis or catalyzing development of novel approaches to accelerate an end to this tragic and avoidable loss of life."

Therapeutic Solutions International Files Investigational New Drug Application (IND) with FDA for Treatment of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Using Clinically Validated JadiCell® Universal Donor Stem Cell
OCEANSIDE, Calif., Dec. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Therapeutic Solutions International, Inc., (OTC Markets: TSOI), announced today filing of an Investigational New Drug (IND) application seeking permission from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to initiate a Phase I/II clinical trial assessing safety and signals of efficacy for treatment of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) patients with JadiCells™.
The JadiCell is a type of umbilical cord derived mesenchymal stem cell which possesses superior therapeutic activity as compared to other stem cell types based on laboratory and clinical studies. The JadiCell was recently reported to possess therapeutic activity against COVID-19 in a recently published clinical trial1. The Company previously obtained an exclusive license for use of JadiCells for CTE and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)2,3.
"My team and myself are extremely excited about the potential of using our unique novel cell therapy for treatment of CTE, which is the cause of countless deaths, as well as chronic disabilities" said Dr. Amit Patel, inventor of the JadiCell. "Having worked over the past several years with the multidisciplinary team assembled by Timothy Dixon, I look forward to progress in this area of medicine, for which currently there are limited options."
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is caused by repetitive concussive/sub-concussive hits to the head sustained over a period of years and is often found in football players4. The condition is characterized by memory loss, impulsive/erratic behavior, impaired judgment, aggression, depression, and dementia. In many patients with CTE, it is anatomically characterized by brain atrophy, reduced mass of frontal and temporal cortices, and medial temporal lobe. TSOI has previously filed several patents in the area of CTE based on modulating the brain microenvironment to enhance receptivity of regenerative cells such as stem cells.
Suicide is a major cause of death in military veterans, approximately 20 deaths per day5. It is widely known that TBI and CTE are associated with increased propensity for suicide6,7. Furthermore, studies show that cytokines associated with brain inflammation, such as IL-6 and TNF-alpha are found in higher levels in patients with suicidal tendencies8.
"To our knowledge, this is the first therapeutic intervention addressing CTE using stem cells and we are tremendously excited to finally move into clinical testing for this terrible disease that not only affects athletes but our military and law enforcement as well" said Timothy Dixon, President and CEO of the Company. "Having worked over the last 2 years in developing the preclinical data supporting this IND, we are extremely pleased to file this new drug application today."
Therapeutic Solutions International Signs Letter of Intent with Premier Adipose Stem Cell Company Synova Life Sciences to File IND for Suicide Prevention
Campbell Neurosciences Division Aims to Combat Suicide-Causing Brain Inflammation using Stromal Vascular Fraction Immunotherapy
OCEANSIDE, Calif., Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Therapeutics Solution International, Inc., (OTC Markets: TSOI), announced today signing a letter of intent with Synova Life Sciences aimed at developing a "First in Class" cellular therapy for suicide and suicidal ideation.
Under the proposed collaboration, Therapeutic Solutions International will contribute its existing expertise and intellectual property regarding adipose stem cell treatment of neuroinflammatory disorders, whereas Synova Life Sciences will provide access to its non-enzymatic stromal vascular fraction isolation device.
The two parties aim to file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application to the FDA for initiating a clinical trial in patients at high risk of suicide.
"Numerous publications have supported potent anti-inflammatory activity of stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells 1, 2, which are rich not only in mesenchymal stem cells, but also in T regulatory cells, type 2 monocytes, and endothelial progenitor cells3," said Kalina O'Connor, Director of the Company's Campbell Neurosciences, which is focused on Suicide Prevention. "We are highly impressed by the superior speed, viability, and quality of SVF cells obtained using the Synova Life Sciences device as compared to other collagenase-based approaches.

Therapeutic Solutions International Division of Campbell Neurosciences Files Patent on QuadraMune™ for Treatment of Major Depressive Disorder
Preclinical Data Suggests QuadraMune™ Prevents Stress-Induced Suppression of Neurogenesis More Effectively than Prozac
OCEANSIDE, Calif., Dec. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Therapeutics Solution International, Inc., (OTC Markets: TSOI), announced today new data suggesting the possibility that QuadraMune™ may mediate neuroprotective activity through preserving the ability of regenerative brain cells to proliferate subsequent to psychological stress.
The experiments, which involved exposing mice to established stressors, demonstrated that specific areas of the brain associated with production of new brain cells are damaged by stress. In agreement with previously published research, administration of fluoxetine (Prozac™) protected the brain from stress-induced damage. Surprisingly, QuadraMune™ administration appeared superior to Prozac™ at stimulating proliferation of new brain cells.
"QuadraMune™ which is currently in a clinical trial for prevention of COVD-191, has also been demonstrated to possess anti-inflammatory activity in other clinical trials, suppressing cytokines such as IL-62, which are known to be involved in depression3 and suicide4" said Kalina O'Connor, Director of Campbell Neurosciences and co-inventor on the patent. "Given major depressive disorder causes a significant risk for suicide, we are highly interested in exploring the use of QuadraMune™ for preventing suicide."
"Although much enthusiasm has been generated over the planned distribution of the COVID vaccine, at present little is being done to address mental health issues that are being exacerbated by the current pandemic" said Dr. James Veltmeyer, co-inventor of the patent, and Chief Medical Officer of the Company. "If current results are reproducible, the possibility that a nutraceutical would concurrently boost immunity while preserving mental health is highly enticing."
"It has not escaped us that COVID-19 is associated with increased inflammatory cytokines in the blood of patients, cytokines that also predispose to depression" said Famela Ramos, Vice President of Business Development for the Company. "It may be that the recent increase in suicides and suicide attempts is related biologically to activities of the coronavirus. It will be interesting to examine whether QuadraMune™ may modify putative negative mental effects of the virus."
"An estimated 17.3 million adults in the United States had at least one major depressive episode. This number represented 7.1% of all U.S. adults" stated Timothy Dixon, President and CEO of the Company. "We believe the Mission of our Company is not just providing a return on investment to our shareholders, but also increasing the quality of life for Americans. We are extremely pleased to report this unexpected finding with significant potential implications to advancing non-toxic means of helping patients with this terrible condition."
