National Tay Sachs and Allied Diseases Recruits Industry Leaders for Advisory Council

BOSTON, MA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 01/30/2015 – – National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases, the nation’s oldest rare disease patient advocacy group, is intensifying efforts to find treatments for neurodegenerative disorders with the formation of a Corporate Advisory Council (CAC). Comprised of industry leaders with direct experience in developing, funding and commercializing therapies for rare diseases, the CAC will help NTSAD advance its research programs, build clinical trial readiness and promote the rare disease organization to potential partners by highlighting its access to patients, to animal models and other resources.

In 2013, the FDA granted NTSAD orphan drug designation for a Tay-Sachs gene therapy treatment. Research is currently in pre-clinical development stages in partnership with the Tay-Sachs Gene Therapy (TSGT) Consortium, whose goal is the initiation of a gene therapy clinical trial for Tay-Sachs disease and Sandhoff disease.

“NTSAD’s rich resources should be attractive to companies interested in bringing a therapy to market for this group of lysosomal storage diseases,” said CAC Chair, Marion Howard, M.D., Ph.D., founder of Cambridge BioStrategies. “To build closer ties with these companies, we have assembled a group of experts in both drug development and commercialization who have not only brought drugs for rare diseases to market, but also have a passion for this field.”

Other CAC members are:

– Oved Amitay, VP, Head of Commercial, Alnylam Pharmaceuticals

– Ritu Baral, Managing Director, Senior Biotechnology Analyst, Cowen and Company

– Michael Gladstone, Life Sciences Group Associate, Atlas Venture

– Kate Haviland, VP Rare Diseases, Idera Pharmaceuticals

– Joan Keutzer, Ph.D., VP of Scientific Affairs, Genzyme Corporation

– Greg Licholai, M.D., VP and General Manager, McKinsey Solutions company Spotlight

– Bradley Campbell, President and COO, Amicus Therapeutics

“The CAC guidance is proving invaluable to our clinical trial readiness for Phase I clinical trials,” said NTSAD Executive Director, Susan Kahn. “In conjunction with our Scientific Advisory Board and the Tay-Sachs Gene Therapy Consortium, they are also influencing the direction of our basic research grants to expeditiously bring a therapy to market.”


National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association (NTSAD) is one of the oldest patient advocacy groups in the country. NTSAD focuses on supporting research and the needs of over 500 families and individuals worldwide in several ways, including raising awareness to prevent disease. Their programs and services includes providing comprehensive support services to affected families through their Peer Support Group. The NTSAD research support program aims to direct, fund and promote promising research to develop treatments and cures. NTSAD also offers educational and awareness programs directly and through collaborations with other rare disease programs and community partners. On a broader front, the association advocates for families and persons of all ages with disabilities on an individual, state and national level.

nFront Password Filter Adds Support for Stanford Password Policy

ALPHARETTA, GA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 01/30/2015 – – nFront Security,, today announces support for the Stanford password policy settings in their nFront Password Filter product. The new password policy settings give users a much more mobile friendly password policy. Users now have control over the password complexity requirements based on the length of password they choose. Longer passwords will require fewer character types and are typed much more easily on mobile phones.

In April 2014 Stanford University adopted the new length-based password policy after much research on password usage and creation. The new password policy is expected to increase network security and lower helpdesk calls for password related issues. As the length of the password increases, the password requirements become less restrictive.

This password policy is a great step forward in balancing the need for better network security and the ease of use needed by enterprise users. This new feature allows users to choose their level of password complexity based on password length. It is great to see a policy that emphasizes the best metric of password length. Password research shows that the password length is much more important than complexity requirements. Longer passwords have the largest impact in discouraging password hacking attempts.

The Stanford password policy includes the following requirements:

– 8-11 character passwords require the use of upper and lower case, numerical and special characters.

– 12-15 character passwords require the use of upper and lower case and numerical characters.

– 16-19 character passwords require upper and lower case characters

– 20+ characters require lower case characters.

nFront Password Filter makes adoption of the Stanford password policy even easier by including a one-step checkbox to implement the policy requirements. Administrators can still use the nFront product to establish additional password policies within the Windows Active Directory with additional requirements. However, the Stanford settings provide an excellent baseline policy. The nFront Password Filter client further enhances the user experience by showing the exact requirements on the password change screen in the Windows operating system.

About nFront Security

nFront Security specializes in innovative software solutions for network security. The company’s prominent program, nFront Password Filter, protects data integrity by establishing password policies that prevent the use of easily hacked passwords. This enforcement tool is available for Windows Active Directory and Microsoft SQL servers. Companies in more than 20 countries and numerous Fortune 100 companies use nFront Password Filter to meet IRS 1075, SOX, HIPAA, PCI and NERC CIP requirements.

GeckoSystems Featured as One of Five Key Vendors in Mobile Robotics Market


CONYERS, GA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 01/30/2015 – – GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (OTC Pink: GOSY) (PINKSHEETS: GOSY) announced today that an internationally renowned market research firm, Research and Markets, has again named GeckoSystems as one of the key market players in the mobile robotics industry. For over seventeen years GeckoSystems has dedicated itself to development of "AI Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service™."

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Mobile Robotics market for the period 2015-2019. Research and Markets stated in their report, that they: "…forecast the Global Mobile Robotics market to grow at a CAGR of 12.63 percent over the period 2014-2019."

The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts and covers the Americas, the APAC, and the EMEA regions. The report also discusses the Global Mobile Robotics market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years.

Research and Markets lists the following as the key vendors operating in this market:

Key Vendors

– Adept Technology

– GeckoSystems

– Honda Motor

– iRobot


Other Prominent Vendors

– Aethon

– Barrett Technology

– Bossa Nova Robotics

– Bluefin Robotics

– ECA Robotics

– Harvest Automation

– John Deere

– Seegrid

“GeckoSystems has been recognized by Research and Markets for several years now and it is the most comprehensive report of the global mobile robotics industry that I am aware of. I am pleased that their experienced market researchers are sufficiently astute to accept that small service robot firms, such as GeckoSystems, can nonetheless develop advanced technologies and products as well, or better, as much larger, multi-billion dollar corporations such as Nissan, Honda, iRobot, Sony, and Toyota.

“It is an honor that they recognize the value of the over 100 man-years we have invested in our proprietary Intellectual Properties and my full time work for nearly 20 years now. Our suite of AI mobile robot solutions is well tested, portable, and extensible. It is a reality that we could partner with any other company on that list and provide them with high-level autonomy for collision free navigation at the lowest possible cost to manufacture. There is also an opportunity for other cost reductions and enhancement of functionality with other components of our AI solutions," stated Martin Spencer, CEO, GeckoSystems International Corporation.

Subsequent to Mr. Spencer’s trip to Japan last December, another multi-billion dollar Japanese corporation, that is not international, has submitted a request for quote (RFQ) for 25 CareBot(tm)-"J’s" for beta test trials in Japan. The J version of the CareBot retains all the benefits and features of the US version, but with Japanese language voice recognition/synthesis and a shroud style appropriate for the Japanese culture. So while the company continues in its discussions and negotiations with the companies visited last December, this new, very significant RFQ is now being addressed.

In the US, GeckoSystems projects the available market size in dollars for cost effective, utilitarian, multitasking eldercare social mobile robots in 2016 to be $74.0B, in 2017 to be $77B, in 2018 to be $80B, in 2019 to be $83.3B, and in 2020 to be $86.6B. With market penetrations of 0.03% in 2016, 0.06% in 2017, 0.22% in 2018, 0.53% in 2019, and 0.81% in 2020, we anticipate CareBot social robot sales from the consumer market alone at levels of $22.0M, $44.0M, $176M, $440.2M, and $704.3M, respectively. The company is presently securing funding for manufacturing, marketing and final beta testing of their CareBot.

“I am also pleased that as the Mobile Robotics industry begins to offer real products to eager markets our capabilities are being recognized. Forward thinking companies are looking to early entry into these markets and Nissan is an excellent example of this type sort of company. My recent meeting with leading roboticists at Nissan’s Mobility Services Laboratory, which is responsible for Nissan’s autonomous car R&D in Japan, clarified Nissan’s goals and capabilities and I am confident that they are complimentary with our own. We recently moved up to Limited Information status on OTC Markets. While I regret our time as No Information, our financials are now available for that time period. We remain very committed to providing our 1300+ stockholders the ROI they deserve,” concluded Spencer.

Gold Resource Corporation Intercepts Multiple High Grade Parallel Veins at Switchback Including 1.71 Meters Of 13.45 G/T Gold, 860 G/T Silver, 1.81% Copper, 3.52% Lead And 7.18% Zinc


COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 01/27/2015 – – Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE MKT: GORO) (the “Company”) today provided an update with new Switchback drill highlights at its El Aguila Project in Mexico. Gold Resource Corporation is a gold and silver producer with operations in Oaxaca, Mexico and exploration in Nevada, USA. The Company has returned over $102 million to shareholders in monthly dividends since commercial production July 1, 2010, and offers shareholders the option to convert their cash dividends into physical gold and silver and take delivery.

Highlights of the latest round of Switchback drill results include Hole 414067, which returned 6.12 meters grading 5.53 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 76 g/t silver, 0.15% copper, 0.41% lead and 4.15% zinc. Hole 414067 also intercepted a second vein returning 19.34 meters grading 2.56 g/t gold, 129 g/t silver, 0.62% copper, 1.28% lead and 3.84% zinc; including 1.71 meters grading 13.45 g/t gold, 860 g/t silver, 1.81% copper, 3.52% lead and 7.18% zinc (see table below).

Hole 514057 intercepted three separate Switchback veins. The first vein returned 2.60 meters grading 0.17 g/t gold, 119 g/t silver, 0.04% copper, 1.34% lead and 6.23% zinc; the second vein returned 1.96 meters grading 1.21 g/t gold, 133 g/t silver, 0.41% copper, 2.25% lead and 8.24% zinc; while the third vein returned 3.15 meters grading 0.44% gold, 234 g/t silver, 0.86% copper, 0.99% lead and 3.24% zinc (see table below).

Four additional drill holes are reported from the latest results in the table below, all of which intercepted polymetallic mineralization containing gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc. Each reported drill intercept contains significant percentages of zinc, ranging from 2.97% to 21.30%. Base metals have the potential to off-set precious metal production costs by creating by-product credits when sold to the Company’s concentrate purchaser. The table also includes previously released Switchback drill results from 2014 and 2013.


The Switchback discovery, announced in June 2013, is located on the Company’s El Aguila Project approximately 500 meters northeast of the Company’s producing La Arista polymetallic (gold, silver, and base metals) underground mine (see maps below). The Company made a decision mid-2014 to drift approximately 250 meters towards the Switchback mineralization to shorten the drill distance to the mineralized area and to provide the drill better angles to intercept the veins. This latest round of drilling focused on infill drilling the previously defined 450 meter strike by 450 meter depth mineralized horizon.

Mr. Barry Devlin, Vice President of Exploration, stated, “It is exciting to see continued high-grade polymetallic intercepts at Switchback. This latest round of infill drilling continues to define multiple meters of both precious and base metals within multiple parallel vein structures. Our immediate plan is to continue infill drilling at Switchback to further delineate these vein structures with a goal of moving Switchback to a near term development decision.”

“These multiple high-grade vein intercepts at Switchback are reminiscent of early drill results at the Company’s currently producing Arista deposit," observed Gold Resource Corporation’s CEO and President, Mr. Jason Reid. "The latest Switchback results confirm multiple en echelon high-grade polymetallic veins similar to those being mined 500 meters away at our Arista deposit. We not only look forward to additional Switchback drill results, but towards a future Switchback production decision. We believe the Switchback discovery, coupled with our Arista deposit, speaks to the growing potential of our high-grade epithermal vein system.”
