I am really looking forward to my trip to San Francisco to attend the Biotech Showcase 2018 convention. This event is well received as a strategic benchmark that is of high importance. The conference will have over 334 billion dollars in capital represented from investors.
The attention this convention gets is huge. Ranging from executives of leading biotech companies to big pharmaceutical companies and big industry experts.
This conference is one of the years most important for investors. People from all over the world will be in attendance. Last year there were over 1,800 companies, over 3,000 people and over 900 investors. That is the sign of a great turnout and the importance of this conference.
An article contributed by Chunka Mui for Forbes focuses on the subject of baby boomers and healthcare. The numbers stated in this article are staggering.
The medical needs of baby boomers that are affected by diabetes, high blood pressure and chronic illnesses are increasing. Therefore, the money paid by this generation for insurances and other costs are increasing.
Also, the article discusses how the medical staff in general won’t be strong enough to fulfill the baby boomer needs. The system is going to be inundated, and bankruptcy for individuals and our nation could result, Mui states.
This article is a good article, I do think it comes down to personal responsibility. We are largely responsible of whether we are sick or healthy. Keeping up on diet and exercise, is important since weight control is one of the underlying issues for being and staying healthy.
Self-awareness will help baby boomers stay on top of their medical needs. Knowing what we are doing and when we are doing it. Responsibility of our own person, will make a difference.

One of my favorite all time sports is golf. You probably would have guessed this already, given that it seems to be an all american leisure activity for guys. Golf can bring so many bonding memories.
My grandson, who is 7 years old, started to ask me questions about things I like to do. I told him I liked spending time with him and my kids. He proceeds to say, no, when you aren’t with us what do you do. So I mentioned golf and then pulled up a couple of videos of me and some friends playing.
That is when I saw this bit of excitement in his smile and he was watching the videos. I thought to myself, this will be a chance for some fantastic bonding time with him. I will show him what this sport is all about.
Well, the best money I have spent in a while was buying clubs and the appropriate spiky shoes for my grandson. The joy in his eyes as he discovers this great game makes the time he and I enjoy together some of my favorite moments.
These are exciting times at ABS as we continue our progress towards regulatory approval globally and the release of our advanced stenting system worldwide. Within a few short years, most open heart surgeries could become a thing of the past.
Firm Financial Footing
The medical field is a competitive one with innovative research teams competing to attract the attention of major investors. That’s why adding Ken Richards to our team was so important. He brings with him a wealth of experience in the investment arena working for successful investment firms such as York Bridge Capital and CIBC World Markets. Ken has the expertise to help ABS reach its $20 million funding target.
Ken’s a graduate of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and that’s not the only Canadian connection at ABS. On October 3, 2017, we also made a major announcement about our next wave of human clinical trials in partnership with Dalhousie University’s Medical School in New Brunswick. Planning is well underway to begin this next phase of trials at the medical school. This is a big “next step” in our steady progress towards the eventual commercial role out of our innovative stenting system.
Our breakthrough technology received a lot of positive feedback at the recent European Bifurcation Club meeting in Portugal where our CMO, Dr. Mehran Khorsandi, talked about our new procedure. We’ve been able to use this to continue our momentum and we’re excited about what the next few months has in store.
How it Works
Our new technology is designed to replace less reliable stenting methods used today. Our procedure covers all types of lesions regardless of branch angle, size, plaque burden or location. Our system places stents in both the main branch and side branch simultaneously and its self-aligning to virtually eliminate the need for further surgery.
Once we’ve received full regulatory approval I believe that the Advanced Bifurcation Systems Platform will become the method of choice for most interventionist cardiologists.
This Wall Street Journal opinion piece by Peter Berkowitz highlights something really sad. Comey and Mueller would rather see the FBI used as a tool of political intrigue than protect the rule of law for Americans. This situation deserves public outcry and our top law enforcement organization should be above influencing politics or personal gain.
