Knopp Biosciences Expands Research Collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s to Characterize Effect of Dexpramipexole in Inflammatory Diseases16.1.2019 11:00Pressemelding

Knopp Biosciences LLC, a privately held drug discovery and development company focused on delivering breakthrough treatments for inflammatory and neurological diseases with a high unmet need, today announced the expansion of its research collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to further elucidate the eosinophil-depleting mechanism of action of Knopp’s lead investigational drug, dexpramipexole. Eosinophils are white-blood cells that play a central role in several debilitating conditions, including asthma, hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES), and other inflammatory diseases. Dexpramipexole has been shown to selectively reduce eosinophil levels in multiple clinical trials, including a Phase 2 study in HES and a Phase 2 trial in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. Knopp is advancing dexpramipexole into Phase 2 development in severe asthma and Phase 3 development in HES. The research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is being led by Patricia C.

NexPlayer Supporting Low Latency HLS & DASH Streaming on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs16.1.2019 09:52Pressemelding

As part of their mission to provide the most advanced feature set, NexPlayer has added low latency functionality to its media players. NexPlayer allows you to enable low latency streaming with HLS and DASH on all devices, solving the latency problem and improving the OTT viewing experience. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190116005301/en/ Latency is a serious issue for streaming services, as live playback with HLS and DASH typically falls 30 seconds to a minute behind the live event. With linear TV only 6 seconds behind, OTT viewers find out what happens via social media or text before seeing it firsthand. Now with the support of NexPlayer, media organizations can achieve sub-6 second latency on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs. In the past, the only ways to achieve low latency were through proprietary end-to-end protocols or by foregoing ABR support. Both methods have considerable drawbacks. Propr
