 American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (OTCPK:AVOT)

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. has signed an option agreement to acquire two claim blocks in townships of Mekinac and Lajuene, Province of Quebec. These claim blocks are approximately 3600 acres in total and are located 120 miles east of Montreal P.Q. and 50 miles north of Three Rivers P.Q. They are accessible year round with infrastructure in the immediate vicinity. The claims adjoin a property that had one of the highest readings of Rare Earths in North America. Sampling in the 1950s gave readings of 48% combined Cerium, Lanthanum, Neoymium and Yttrium. That property has remained dormant for over 50 years but the new owners plan an extensive exploration program this fall. AVOT, after a lengthy search and after careful due diligence, believes this is going to be one of the most active areas for Rare Earths exploration and our holdings are in the same geological setting as the 48% Rare Earths showing. Rare Earths are in huge demand especially in the United States as China is closing off its exports of these strategic metals to less than 5% of its production. AVOT will aggressively continue to search world wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.

China has started to severely restrict the exports of rare-earth materials, which often find use in “green” technology designs, including hybrid vehicles and energy-efficient lighting, as well as in the medical, defense, and consumer markets. The country delivers nearly 100% of the world’s rare-earth materials: 17 metals that are somewhat hard to refine and that tend to occur in the same ore deposits. The cutbacks have resulted in shock waves through the electronics industry and could force design changes in the near future.

Constraints on Chinese exports are creating opportunities for non-Chinese projects.

  Enzo Biochem, Inc. (NYSE:ENZ)

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (NYSEARCA:IBD) refers to conditions such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease that are characterized by chronic inflammation of the intestine. Although the cause of IBD remains unknown, various features of the disease strongly suggest that autoimmunity is a major component of the pathogenesis. This suggests that Enzo's immune regulation technology platform may offer an effective treatment for IBD

IBD patients are currently managed during short-term episodes through the use of anti-inflammatory medications, or immunosuppressants such as corticosteroids. These provide symptomatic relief over short periods of time, but do not deliver a cure. These non-specific drugs all act by a generalized suppression of the immune response, with the unfortunate side effect of increasing the patient's susceptibility to infection. ENZ's drug candidate, AlequelT, is designed as a therapeutic modality that specifically quiets the inflammatory responses associated with IBD but does not induce a generalized immune suppression.

Approximately one million people in the United States suffer from IBD. In recent years the total treatment market exceeded 1.5 billion dollars.
