In this vein, some people might suspect that there's not a whole lot of new thinking going on in the marijuana industry -- after all, how much is there to innovate on when it comes to an herb? From my perspective, the cannabis industry is a hotbed of creative activity, assuming you know where to look. If you believe that people enjoy smoking cannabis, it isn't too much of a stretch to think that they'd enjoy drinking cannabis too.

Cadence Bancorporation (NYSE: CADE) announces first quarter 2021 earnings and a strong start to the year.
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN 22 April 2021. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) announces today that its portfolio company Umecrine Cognition has published results from the recently conducted phase 2a study of the drug candidate golexanolone in the highly regarded scientific journal Journal of Hepatology. The study results show that the company's drug candidate has a positive effect on neuropsychiatric outcome measures, is well tolerated and has a favorable pharmacokinetic profile even at high and repeated doses. The results strengthen the potential for golexanolone as part of future treatments for hepatic encephalopathy. Liver failure may over-activate the GABA system in the brain, causing cognitive disturbances and sleep disturbances that reduce the quality of life for both patients and their close relatives. Umecrine Cognition is developing golexanolone (formerly GR3207), a drug candidate with a novel mechanism of action aimed at the GABAA receptor in the brain. The drug candidate acts by attenuating the incorrect activation of the receptor and can thus restore normal nerve signaling. The scientific article presents results from a recent phase 2a clinical trial with single and increasing doses (SAD) as well as repeated and increasing doses (MAD) of golexanolone in 77 liver cirrhosis patients. The study evaluated the safety profile and pharmacokinetics of the drug candidate. The results show that golexanolone has a good safety profile and favorable pharmacokinetics, including good systemic distribution. In an exploratory sub-study, the efficacy of the drug candidate was evaluated in 45 patients with cognitive impairment due to early hepatic encephalopathy, also known as covert hepatic encephalopathy (CHE), receiving either active treatment with golexanolone or placebo. Following the treatment period, the effect of golexanolone on CHE and the risk of disease progression from CHE to overt liver encephalopathy (HE) were analyzed. In summary, the study results indicate that golexanolone has a positive effect on cognition through improved responsiveness (CRT), normalized brain signaling (EEG) and improved sleep status (ESS). The positive phase 2 results support continued development investments in the drug candidate. “We are delighted that Umecrine Cognition's successes are being spread in international scientific media. It is an important recognition of the high quality of the company's development efforts of drugs against hepatic encephalopathy – a complicated disease state where the need for effective treatment is pronounced,” comments Karolinska Development's CEO, Viktor Drvota. Karolinska Development's ownership interest in Umecrine Cognition amounts to 72%.

British manufacturers' expectations of an economic rebound rose to their highest in 48 years this month as the country began to recover from the slump caused by the COVID pandemic, the Confederation of British Industry said on Thursday. The CBI said its quarterly survey of manufacturers also pointed to a revival of investment and hiring plans and continued concerns about higher costs. "Phased reopening has lifted the mood among firms, notably driving orders, employment, and investment plans," CBI chief economist Rain Newton-Smith said.
Dublin, April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Businesses Need Receivables Automation to Keep Cash Flow Positive During the Pandemic Recovery" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. Automating the systems and processes that encompass corporate accounts receivable has been climbing the priority list in the pandemic era as financial executives increasingly see how end-to-end digitalization can have a positive effect on the cash cycle. In a new research report, Businesses Need Receivables Automation to Keep Cash Flow Positive During the Pandemic Recovery, the publisher reviews the impact of the pandemic on corporate cash flow and the key pieces of integrated receivables that have been gaining intense focus for modernization projects. The growth in digital payments over the past several years has been steady, but since the early months of the pandemic, there has been a pivot towards longer term payments digitization across the spectrum of effort that encompasses the cash cycle and can provide better working capital effectiveness. The early-on impact of lockdowns and travel restrictions placed a heavy emphasis on getting payments out electronically, which then set off light bulbs on the receivables side as financial operations had to adjust and consider the longer term implications of manual process elimination Reviewing payments as an end-to-end continuum provides benefits to buyers and suppliers, by leading to a convergence of the systems and processes that make up financial operations. Forward-thinking banks and their clients are now taking a closer look at supporting receivables modernization as part of overall digitization projects. Highlights of the report include: A detailed review of the ongoing challenges associated with late payments for companies across the globe.Analysis of the key steps and digital systems available in the spectrum of receivables management.Review of key latest trends around receivables technology innovations that banks and their corporate clients should be considering in order to remain competitive in this increasingly digital era.

A new report presented recently by staff at the Metropolitan Planning Organization details 70 years of racist housing policy, road construction and city planning in Tampa and Hillsborough County.The big picture: The study, which looked at development policy from 1900 to the 1970s, found widespread evidence of racially restrictive deed covenants, segregationist public-housing development and highway construction that purposefully destroyed Black, Latino and low-income neighborhoods.Stay on top of the latest market trends and economic insights with Axios Markets. Subscribe for freeDetails: Tampa's first big city plan in 1941 showed the future construction of I-275 and stated it aimed to "do much towards clearing up a blighted slum north of Cass Street on both sides of Central," the Black section of town.A zoning plan the following year issued this directive: "There are several other, smaller areas, occupied now by colored people that should be eliminated and moved to other areas." The master highway transportation plan of 1957 shows the proposed route of I-275 through West Tampa, home to mostly Black and Latino residents.
