Never heard of Simavita (ASX:SVA)? That’s fair. Even Stockhead has only covered them four times over two years — and that’s only because we were intrigued by nappies that send texts.

And frankly, given columnist Tim Boreham’s assessment two years ago, don’t be too hard on yourselves for missing the 480 per cent one-day share price rise on Monday.

The company gained CE Mark certification for its Smartz technology, a sensor which detects when your baby (or your incontinence pad) needs changing. The Mark means the product complies with European health, safety and environmental protection standards.

That 480 per cent spike was the second largest one-day gain in 2019.

Share prices among biotechs tend to be a bit wild: they’ll either swing sharply up (usually that’s on clinical trial data) or sharply down (when a clinical trial really hasn’t worked).

So investors in brain cancer biotech Kazia Therapeutics (ASX:KZA) had a nice week when the company announced early data from a phase 2 clinical trial into glioblastoma, saying they might be able to give sufferers three more months of life. Data from the first eight patients is in, from a 29-patient trial.

Anteotech (ASX:ANO) signed a commercial agreement with IMRA America for joint production and marketing of AnteoBind coated IMRA 40nm i-colloid gold particles for use in the diagnostic market.

Prescient Therapeutics (ASX:PTX) entered into a collaboration with private CAR-T company Carina Biotech to develop new cell therapies for cancer patients with solid tumours, and said three of 15 patients in a phase 1b study of acute myeloid leukemia experienced complete remissions, and they’re now changing the terms of the study.

Regeneus (ASX:RGS) raised $755,029 from a Japan-based institutional investor, which was the shortfall in a non-renounceable rights issue. The total cash raised from the private placement and issue was circa $5.5m.

Resonance Health (ASX:RHT) has successfully trained an AI neural network to do an automated assessment of liver fat from MRI data, and filed a provisional patent for the discovery and use of novel blood markers to determine an individual’s iron status.

Allegra Orthopaedics (ASX:AMT) has started a preclinical large animal study for its biodegradable cervical fusion device, an Sr–HT–Gahnite spinal cage. The device is a 3D-printed synthetic bone.
