  • The OFA antigen is found not only on breast cancer, but on many other cancers including lung, liver and renal. In fact, OFA has been found on every mammalian cancer that has been studied according to a paper published in the Journal of Modern Aspects of Immunobiology
  • Important to recognize that it was the FDA that kicked QI into a Phase II trial. The initial application was only for a Phase I trail, but the FDA “suggested” that QI go ahead and do a Phase II trial as well.
  • And recall that QI has the exclusive license for other countries beside just the US. So when you look at the unmet medical need worldwide…it’s huge.
  • If QI’s immuno-therapy approach for Stage IV breast cancer patients, it is logical to start to utilize the QI immuno-therapy approach for all breast cancer patients, given the much more favorable side effects profile. And the market for all breast cancer patients is BEYOND HUGE.
  • QI’s R&amp;D staff continue to work on finding even better approaches to combating cancer.
  • Anti bodies stick to the peptides found on OFA Given that OFA appears to be a universal cancer marker, these antibodies can be “tagged” with chemical or radiological markers to detect the presence of OFA/cancer in tissue and blood.
  • QI has accomplished much in a short amount of time.
  • One of the interesting aspects of QI is their use of Independent Contractors. Most of the above folks are independent contractors who have been working for QI stock. QI recognizes that as QI evolves, QI knows that many of these independent contractors will have to come on board as traditional, full time employees. But this approach has allowed QI to conserve capital.
