El Paso, Texas, July 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Premier Biomedical, Inc. (OTCBB: "BIEI") a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative treatment therapies for cancer, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease, and other afflictions announced today that it has retained the investor relations firm Porter, LeVay and Rose to represent it and to implement its communications strategies.
William Hartman, President and CEO of Premier Biomedical stated, "Premier Biomedical is entering a new stage in its development, embarking on two immensely important clinical trials. We believe that transparency and openness are vital to ensuring maximum shareholder value and minimum regulatory interference. Consequently, we have retained Porter, LeVay and Rose based on their four plus decades of experience and their intimate knowledge of the special communications situations involved in bringing treatments to market. Their unique insights should prove invaluable as we undertake these trials.
Michael Porter, President of Porter, LeVay and Rose, said, "Premier Biomedical is one of the most exciting firms we have encountered in our many years of work in the biomedical field. In particular, they have two distinct technologies that, from a financial standpoint, complement each other.
"First, Premier Biomedical plans a clinical trial of its drug Feldetrex™, and it will treat patients suffering from fibromyalgia, MS, and neuropathy. Premier Biomedical received a patent for Feldetrex™ at the end of June 2014, and the Company is moving quickly to get started on the trial. The patients will be given one of four treatments: a placebo, Lyrica®, Feldetrex™ or a Lyrica-Feldetrex™ blend. The results should be available in a matter of months, and commercialization could come quickly.
"What the Company has done that makes this so interesting lies in its research partnerships. Dr. Roxanna Delgado of the US Army will conduct the clinical trial at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center (WBAMC), and she will receive the support of the medical experimentation statistical service department at the University of Texas, El Paso, under the auspices of Dr. Robert Kirken, UTEP's principal investigator."
Porter continued, "Premier Biomedical also plans to conduct a study on its core technology to physically remove the pathophysiologic basis of disease™. It will also take place at the WBAMC immediately following the completion of the first clinical study and will be administered by the same Army-based team. The protocol will be drafted for IRB review as the first study progresses.
"The US Patent Office recently allowed 20 claims covering this basic technology underpinning Premier's on-going research into new treatments for many of today's most debilitating diseases. The idea is simple enough that non-scientists can understand it, but at the same time, it is a revolutionary approach.
"By removing these compounds from the cerebral spinal fluid of individual soldiers suffering from traumatic brain injury and/or PTSD, Premier Biomedical is removing the cause of their illnesses. The Company has already succeeded in removing these same malevolent particles from pooled CSF furnished through the WBAMC Army-based team. This may represent another step forward in the treatment of brain injuries and PTSD."
Porter concluded, "We look forward to helping Premier Biomedical tell this amazing story to the investment community.
