Tosk Announces kRAS Presentation at AACR Meeting

Drug developer Tosk, Inc.,

Tosk, U.S. National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Frederick National Laboratory and the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center makes joint presentation in San Diego

This innovative work on the discovered inhibitor provided important information on the previously, not fully appreciated, interplay between mutated kRAS and a metabolic process.”

— William Garland, Vice President, Research & Development

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA, USA, December 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Privately held biotechnology company, Tosk, Inc., announced today a joint presentation with the U.S. National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Frederick National Laboratory and the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center (TTHSC) at a meeting this week in San Diego, CA. The meeting, entitled “Targeting RAS-Driven Cancers,” was sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). The presentation was entitled “kRAS and Metabolism: An Interesting Interplay.”
Mutations in the human kRAS gene drive 90% of pancreatic cancers, 45% of colon cancers, and 35% of lung cancers. Patients with certain mutated kRAS genes also do not benefit from treatment with a widely-used class of cancer drugs known as EGFR inhibitors, such as Erbitux®. An effective inhibitor of mutated kRAS would address these unmet medical needs and provide an important, new treatment for cancer.
Tosk features proprietary discovery technology using the common fruit fly to discover potential kRAS-inhibiting drugs. This discovery platform uses fruit files with a mutated human kRAS gene integrated into their genome, causing the fly’s wings to be crimped. Tosk screens for drugs which reverse this wing crimping by inhibiting the protein produced by the mutated kRAS gene.
The presentation discussed how a small molecule discovered by Tosk, partially restored normal wing development in the kRAS mutated flies and inhibited growth and signal transduction in multiple, oncogenic kRAS-driven cell lines. The goal of the successful collaboration between Tosk, NCI’s Frederick Laboratory, and TTHSC was to establish the mechanism-of-action of the discovered inhibitor. The work at Tosk and TTHSC was funded by an SBIR grant from NCI.
Dr. William Garland, Vice President of Research and Development at Tosk stated, “This innovative work on the discovered inhibitor provided important information on the previously, not fully appreciated, interplay between mutated kRAS and a metabolic process. The information gained will help future work at Tosk. The results demonstrate the power of collaboration among a small research company, academia, and a large public research institute. None of the groups alone could have achieved the advance reported in our joint presentation.”
About Tosk, Inc.
Tosk’s mission is to improve outcomes for cancer patients by discovering and developing new drugs that selectively block the adverse side effects of cancer therapies and make certain drugs effective in patients that currently do not benefit from treatment. Tosk uses proprietary drug screening methods using the common fruit fly to discover new drugs that might not be found using more conventional methods.

How to Choose the Right OS for Mobile App

MINSK, MINSK REGION, BELARUS, December 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — So you are going to develop a mobile application. You have a breathtaking idea, you have considered all the details of your future application, you have already chosen the right vendor. But do you remember to choose a mobile OS for it? No? It’s a crucial point. Developing the same applications for different operating systems will take more time and cost more money. Anyway, even if your budget allows you to do so, this might not be justified in the end: no matter how perfect your application is, you will continue to improve it on the base of your first users’ feedback, and all these improvements will cost you as twice as more in case you have to implement them for several versions of the app. Therefore, we suggest you starting with one OS, and only after some sort of a trial period thinking about others.

So which one is better?

There are several mobile operating systems but discussing them all makes no sense, as only two are the leaders that share almost the whole market – Android and iOS. These giants are different in many aspects and have own advantages. If you want to make the right decision, you should be aware of the peculiarities of each system in terms of their popularity, development process, and profit.

Market share

It’s not a secret that Android is the most widespread mobile operating system in the world. It has been the first among others for many years and takes the same position this year: as of October 2018, Android has 74.69% of the global mobile market share [Statcounter]. The situation is unlikely to change on a short-term horizon. There are various forecasts about the future of the OS, but many agree that even if the share of Android falls, its current position won’t be affected. Speaking about iOS, it shares 22.34% of the global market; in other words, about 3.5 times less than Android.

Thus, it might at first glance seem that developing your application for Android operating system is more beneficial. Not a bit of it! On the global market, Android is the undoubted leader for sure. But if we analyze the mobile markets of each region, we will see that Android dominates in the world but not in particular countries. In developed countries, the palm of victory belongs to Apple products, and thus to iOS, while the leader in developing countries is Android. Therefore, choosing a platform, you should bear in mind the location of the application release.

Besides the location, you should also think about the targeted audience. The information about age, gender, education, occupation, income level, views, and beliefs of potential users is important not only for the application itself but also for choosing a platform. Study your target auditory carefully to answer this question.

Development

Android and iOS are completely different operating systems, so the requirements for these applications are also different. Particularly, the apps for Android are mostly written in Java and apps for iOS – in Objective-C and Swift. These languages are easy to learn and widespread among developers, so you’re unlikely to have any difficulty in hiring specialists of both types. The difficulty will start with the development process itself. The thing is, iOS developers create applications for few platforms, while Android is used with many devices of different screen size and aspect ratios, thus requiring more time and efforts from a development team and more money from you. However, Android development has a great advantage over iOS: the opportunity for dynamic app development, as Android development platform allows using third-party tools to implement a variety of new things.

Profit

Despite the fact that Android has more users than iOS, proud owners of Apple products are considered to be more solvent. In the first half of 2018, App Store revenue was as twice as more than the revenue of Play Market on half the downloads [Sensor Tower]. Thus, publishing your application in App Store will help you make big bucks for sure. Another issue is to get there. App Store has very strict rules for app publication. First, you need to pay an annual fee in an amount of $99 ($299 for companies). Then you have to upload the app and wait for about 2 weeks while it is checked for every single bug. The possibility that your application will be rejected is very high.

What is required for publishing the app in Play Market? You need to pay $25 as a one-time fee, upload your application, and that’s it: the app will be available for Android users in a couple of hours. Here the risk of being rejected is very low. Thus, if you are going to publish your application in App Store, it is good to work with developers who have the relevant experience. Or choose Play Market and enjoy fast publication.

What about users?

When choosing the right platform for your application you should take into account what users think. The users’ view on Android and iOS is not unique, obviously. One may find the supporters of both systems, as well as their haters. Supporters of Android admire the possibility to set the system in accordance with their needs and to download the variety of apps, criticizing the high price of Apple devices and the expensiveness of App Store applications. iOS users say they love its user-friendliness, amazing design, and high level of security.

Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of both systems will help you choose the most suitable one for your new app. Think about your expectations, goals and the target auditory, consider your possibilities and budget, and the result will be a perfect platform for your application which you and your future users will love.

Appsecco, the application security company, brings sold-out training session to Black Hat Asia 2019

Appsecco has announced that it will be running a bespoke training workshop at Black Hat Asia 2019

LONDON, LONDON, UK, December 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Specialist application security company, Appsecco, has announced that it will be running a bespoke training workshop at Black Hat Asia 2019, the world's leading information security event series providing attendees with the very latest in research, development and trends.

Black Hat Asia 2019 runs for four days from Tuesday March 26th to Friday March 29th 2019, and Appsecco’s training session, which sold out at the Black Hat USA event held in Las Vegas earlier this year, will take place on 26th and 27th March 2019.

Entitled “Automated Defense Using Cloud Services For AWS, Azure & GCP”, Appsecco’s training session has been designed to help delegates understand how simple cloud services can be utilised to set-up lightweight systems for automated security defence.

With the big three IAAS Cloud Providers (AWS, Azure & GCP) each offering something slightly different, as part of this hands-on training Appsecco’s security experts will not only cover what the essential components of an automated security defence set-up should be, but also how to implement them across each provider.

Attendees will also learn how to defend their cloud infrastructure using Serverless technologies and ElasticStack. ElasticStack collects, analyses, logs and triggers alerts based on a configured rule-set, while Serverless drives the defence to perform automated blocking and is configured based on the use case and type of attacks. The current Serverless solution works on AWS, Azure and GCP and can be extended for other providers and custom solutions such as in-house firewalls, IPS, etc.

Appsecco’s Automation and Security Expert, Madhu Akula, will be hosting the workshop alongside Appsecco’s Security Engineer, Bharath Kumar. Each possess extensive experience in the industry, ranging from client facing assignments building scalable and secure infrastructure, to publishing industry leading research.

Appsecco’s co-founder, Gwilym Lewis, says of the agreement, “We’re thrilled to be bringing our sold out training from Black Hat USA to Black Hat Asia. Day one starts by setting the stage for automated defence by tackling centralised monitoring and alerting systems, followed by a focus on day two on advancing the set-up by adding Serverless stack to defend against the infrastructure based on near real-time alerts to match DevOps speed.”

Organisations or individuals interested in finding out more about the training packages, or who want to make a booking, should visit the Black Hat website: https://www.blackhat.com/asia-19/. An early booking offer is available until 18th January 2019.
