The Next Great Breakthroughs In Biotech

The biotech boom is back.

After its big breakthrough a few years ago, the biotech industry fell silent.

Now, it is in the spotlight once again as smart money races in to back some once-in-a-generation breakthroughs.

From exciting new technology to the FDA’s ‘fast-tracking’ of brand new therapies for a wide range of treatments, the biotech industry has once again found itself at exactly the right place at exactly the right time.

Before investing, however, it’s essential to know every detail about a company - and their particular niche.

Not only is the industry notorious for small companies exploding and then promptly losing it all, but it’s also on the cusp of brand new and potentially major breakthroughs…

Meaning that without the proper government green lights, even the most brilliant projects could be shut down in the blink of an eye. 

And with the industry growing faster than ever, it’s never been more important to stay ahead of these trends and regulations.

From industry giants like Microsoft to breakout start-ups like Champignon Brands (CN:SHRM;OTC:SHRMF) - the next great quantum physics or biotech boom is all about positioning yourself.

That’s why we’ve put together an outline of everything you need to know about one of the most exciting trends in the biotech sector as it expands in 2020.

An All Natural Solution

The secret to a successful biotech story lies in one thing: innovation.

Really making a dent in this market isn’t as easy as simply repacking an old idea…

It’s about seeing a solution for a problem no one else seems to be able to solve.

See, the world is experiencing a sort of mental health crisis. We’ve grown further apart than ever thanks to television, cellphones, and the internet. And we’ve lost touch with a lot of the things that used to bring us together.

As a result, mental health has become a global emergency.

And while traditional psychiatric medications are able to help most people...

Many people are still struggling.

For years, ‘fringe’ doctors and psychonauts have praised the benefits of a certain type of drug...

In fact, these all-natural therapies go back for centuries. 

Now, with the beginning of a wave of decriminalization taking place across the United States, psychedelics are targeting the center of a $13 billion medical boom.

And one little-known company called Champignon Brands (CN:SHRM;OTC:SHRMF) saw this trend coming and its stock has already tripled in value since March as they’ve got lots going for them.

First, they’ve got a vision. To bring help to a population who haven’t been able to benefit from Big Pharma’s traditional medicines.

In fact, they have a whole range of compounds that in clinical trials help everything from depression and anxiety to PTSD and alcoholism. 

While these highly praised medicines are still considered illegal, they’re starting to benefit from a new wave of acceptance across the United States and the globe.

See, the FDA just fast-tracked psilocybin, MDMA and ketamine for therapeutic research.

And the results in tests so far have been astounding. 

Champignon Brands saw this coming, in fact. That’s why they’ve been strategically positioning themselves for the next big biotech boom.

Unlike many companies in the biotech space, where investors expose themselves to massive risk in the hopes that a certain medical trial will pay off, Champignon Brands has an integrated vertical business model that provides it with a steady income to fund its groundbreaking medical trials.

Additionally, Champignon Brands (CN:SHRM;OTC:SHRMF) has an impressive acquisition list, buying up key companies in the industry in its determination to dominate this up and coming trend.

The Great CRISPR Debate

CRISPR is the technology at the center of one of the biggest debates in the scientific world. And it’s also one of the most fast-moving technologies in the scientific world.

Imagine how quickly computers went from giant boxes that took up entire rooms to little rectangles that fit in your pocket…

Now think about how that progression has impacted modern life.

A similar development is being worked on right now with CRISPR technology, a simple yet extremely powerful tool for editing genomes.

Gene-editing has unlocked a whole world of medical possibilities, like treating cancer or HIV. 

These are what are called therapeutic-somatic genetic modifications. But it’s slightly more complicated than that.

It also introduces the possibility of removing the genes that would essentially make a baby immune to those same diseases from the get-go. 

And while that’s already quite controversial, the debate really picks up when you consider the same technology could be used to make your future child taller, smarter, prettier or wittier.

It’s essentially pandora’s box - and science has just opened it. But there are some companies pursuing the technology responsibly.

Take CRISPR Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP), for instance. Their research focuses entirely on the development of transformative gene-based medicine. 

Their treatments adhere to the current recommendations of the International Society for Stem Cell Research and target only somatic cells, which means their treatments will not be able to be transferred to a patient’s child.

Sangamo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SGMO) is another diverse biotech player with a lot of promising treatments in its pipeline. 

From treatments for Huntington’s disease to Hemophilia, Sangamo is developing capabilities that allow them to design therapeutic approaches to resolve the underlying genetic causes of disease.

Quantum Computers

Quantum computing is going to transform the world as we know it.

From curing cancer to bringing an end to climate change, this is where the world’s biggest questions are being answered.

Problems that we have previously considered ‘impossible’ could soon be solved in the click of a button. And breakthroughs are being made every day.

Just a few months ago, Google (GOOG) claimed to have achieved the holy grail of quantum computing - quantum supremacy. It is something that scientists have been working on since the 1980s and, in late 2019, the Silicon Valley giant reported on this huge breakthrough.

So what does this breakthrough mean in laymen’s terms?

Well, the Google device completed a calculation that a supercomputer would take more than 10,000 years to complete… in 3 minutes and 20 seconds. 

It is a breakthrough that has been compared to the Wright brother’s first flight - proof of a concept that will likely change the world forever.

And it’s not the first time that Google has been at the forefront of quantum computing. In 2016, Google produced the first completely scalable quantum simulation of a hydrogen molecule. The implication of that breakthrough was equally enormous. If a quantum computer can accurately represent chemistry then it could, one-day, simulate and cure our worst health complications and diseases. 

Meanwhile, Microsoft’s (MSFT) Quantum Lab in Sydney, Australia has developed the ability to control 50,000 qubits through three wires, a cryogenic CMOS design, and a 1cm2 chip computing at near absolute zero temperatures. 

In the words of the director of the Quantum Lab, it is “one of the most sophisticated micro-devices ever made” and its ability to work with any type of quantum computing hardware could change the entire industry. 

The next step for Microsoft now that they have this chip is to scale up the computer and begin solving real-world problems.

Arguably the most exciting problem out there is ending climate change. The idea, just like with Google’s hydrogen simulation, is to simulate large complex molecules and then uncover new catalysts for carbon capture that are cheap and hyper-efficient. 

Currently, we can simulate small molecules up to a few dozen qubits but need to scale this to the order of 1 million to solve these kinds of problems. Either of these computing giants could hold the key to the next great breakthrough - changing the world forever.

Other Canadian companies set to profit from the biotech boom:

Telo Genomics Corp. (TSXV:TELO) is a high-tech personalized medicine company with an innovative new software platform which uses 3D analysis to target various diseases and help clinicians identify a diagnosis and optimize treatment plans. 3D Signatures’ software is saving doctors time which will make a huge difference in the treatment of patients.  

3D Signatures sets itself apart from its competition through creating individualized treatment plans for patients. Using its mapping platform, the software can determine how a disease will progress and whether or not the patient will respond to treatment.

The company’s broad scope and futuristic technology brings a promising opportunity to potential investors. 3D Signatures is at the forefront of a new revolution in medicine, and investors are sure to take notice.  

Trillium Therapeutics Inc. (TSX:TRIL)

Trillium is a specialized biotechnology company that takes a unique approach on the industry, harnessing insights from nature to develop novel immunotherapies to treat cancer. Trillium’s products tackle such diseases as lymphoma and myeloma and other blood cancers. 

Trillium went public over 13 years ago, and has already garnered a name for itself in this industry. The Toronto giant is now one of the shining stars of Canada’s biotech scene. 

Oncolytics Biotech Inc. (TSX:ONC)

Oncolytics Biotech is another Canadian biotech firm. The company got it start from a major series of discoveries based out of the University of Calgary and has grown significantly over the past two decades. Onoclytics’ primary product is REOLYSIN, a first-in-class, systemically administered, immuno-oncolytic virus created with the potential to act as a therapy for cancer patients.

Celestica Inc. (TSX:CLS) is a manufacturer of electrical devices used in IT, telecommunications, healthcare, defense and aerospace industries. The company has seen strong growth YoY which we expect to continue as the sales expectations are almost 3% better than last year’s.

While telecommunications stocks have been volatile recently, defense, IT and aerospace industries have outperformed and while many see limited upside, these industries continue to surprise both investors and analysts.

CannTrust Holdings Inc. (TSX:TRST)

Canntrust is a cannabis company focusing on the numerous medical benefits of the plant. They offer a number of cannabis-derived products, from CBD and THC pills to actual plant matter.

In September, the company made history with the first approved shipment of a cannabis product to Denmark. The company shipped cannabis oils overseas in a breakthrough deal with its Danish joint venture partner, STENOCARE.

"Thanks to CannTrust's consistent quality and standardized products, we are the first in Denmark to have cannabis oil products approved for the market," noted Thomas S. Schnegelsberg, CEO of STENOCARE.
