|Initial thought is the news is nothing. But when you think about the target market here, the number of homes the programme will be run and women / mobile phones / talking about 'health' / being able to show each other their results on their phones when they meet up, etc??|

"Akers Biosciences Updates on Akers Wellness(TM) Tests
April 24, 2017
THOROFARE, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2017) - Akers Biosciences, Inc. ( NASDAQ : AKER ) ( AIM : AKR.L ) ("Akers Bio" or the "Company"), a developer of rapid health information technologies, announces that the Akers Wellness™ app, which enables users to track the results of Akers Wellness™ breath-based tests via their mobile device, has been approved by the Apple App Store and is now available for download on iOS devices. The Akers Wellness™ app has until now only been available for android devices on the Google Play Store.
The app works in conjunction with BreathScan Lync™, the new bluetooth-enabled reading device from Akers Wellness™, and disposable breath-based test cartridges, to help promote, track and/or encourage choices related to general health and wellbeing.
The iOS compatibility is a significant step in the commercialization of Akers Wellness™ tests due to the dominance of iOS devices in the mobile device market. A key target in the Company's marketing strategy is the multilevel marketing nutraceutical suppliers. The Company believes iOS compatibility is critical to the success in this market and will now rapidly proceed to market to this industry.
The first commercialized Akers Wellness™ breath test is BreathScan OxiChek™, the first disposable breath test to rapidly determine levels of oxidative stress in the body by measuring the levels of certain abundant free radicals. Unlike current laboratory testing methods that test only a few free radicals using an invasive blood draw -- and have a turnaround time of 7 to 10 days -- Akers Bio's rapid OxiChek™ test detects a broad spectrum of free radicals contained in a person's exhaled breath in just a few minutes. Frequent use of OxiChek™ may help health practitioners to monitor and adjust their clients' regimen of nutritional supplementation in order to manage oxidative stress -- an indicator of the overall health and wellbeing of a person.
A highly successful clinical trial of OxiChek™ carried out in 2016 demonstrated a correlation between OxiChek™ and the standard reference laboratory blood testing method (TBARS) of 99.5%.
OxiChek™ is now commercialized and selling through the Company's distributor, Aero-Med, to anti-aging, functional and integrative health and wellness treatment practitioners in the US. The Company is also ramping up marketing initiatives of OxiChek™ to professionals through enhanced e-commerce and social media platforms.
In addition to targeting professionals, Akers Wellness™ intends to start marketing OxiChek™ through direct-to-consumer channels this year. This will include a television marketing campaign through the popular Balancing Act national television show on the Lifetime network. Balancing Act is America's premier morning show that introduces positive solutions to busy, on-the-go modern women. Akers Wellness™ has completed filming of the program, which will be aired multiple times on Lifetime this quarter and syndicated to approximately 200 affiliates. This marketing initiative is targeting women aged 25-45 and will potentially reach approximately 98 million households and thousands of online viewers.
Raymond F. Akers, Jr. PhD, Vice Chairman of Akers Bio, commented: "We have completed our near-term product offering for the expansive health and wellness and anti-aging industry with the addition of iOS compatibility for the Akers Wellness™ app, which was the last hurdle to what we believe will be a rapid growth curve in revenue for these products. Akers Wellness™ is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of its customers and we believe that OxiChek™ will have a significant impact on this goal. We are turning our attention to providing more services to our customers through our app and, in turn, creating secondary revenue generating opportunities. The Company is pleased to be launching enhanced e-commerce and social media platforms around OxiChek™ and is looking forward to the start of our television marketing campaign in the coming weeks."
John J. Gormally, Chief Executive Officer of Akers Bio, added: "I am very excited about the advancements in our commercialization strategy for Akers Wellness™ products and look forward to these propelling our sales, initially of OxiChek™, and later our other Akers Wellness™ tests."|
|Best get AKR to take them over then,|

1) ‘Lupuzor’; for Lupus currently in pivotal Phase 3 trials.
2) All patients now recruited.
3) Results expected Q1 2018.
4) Incremental announcements expected throughout 2017.
5) On FDA’s “fast track” “special protocol” route after strong safety and efficacy in Phase 2, so if IMM adheres to same protocol as Phase 2b and delivers positive results, FDA will approve and not request further trial with different endpoints or outcomes.
6) Potential “multi-billion dollar sales”.
7) Currently 100% owned by IMM.
8) Very little competition, with only one other Lupus drug approved in last 50 years - GSK’s Benlysta reached sales over $400m in 2015, with annual sales predicted at $1bn by 2020.
9) IMM’s Lupuzor already demonstrated in Phase IIb to be safer and more effective than Benlysta, and is expected to have lower pricing.
10) Fully cashed up from £4.1m fund raise in March 2017, enabling it to complete pivotal Phase 3 trials and progress other pipeline projects.
Northland Capital has 171p current valuation on IMM.
With the blockbuster sales potential, little competition, good Phase 2 and FDA fast track and special protocol status, I personally think it could be £7 to £10 if the Phase 3 results are good in Q1 2018.
"There's going to be a fantastic return on investment for anybody who invests in ImmuPharma...This is going to be a multi-billion dollar drug, its as simple as that...This will absolutely be a multi-billion dollar drug" [i.e. IMM’s Lupuzor]

|Gormally acted appropriately.You both seem keen to move the discussion onto other things, so best wishes with that and have a great day.|
|wigwammer, you previously suggested I pumped and the dumped this, so if you did sell this that would make you a hypocrite. But, based on your postings on here, you're a stickler so I don't reckon being a hypocrite would sit easy with a stickler.
Gormally could have just kept things simple and honest and said the placing was for working capital (ie and connected to the ongoing issue re the china contract) and for the plans for 2017; at the time, they would have known about the GNYHA stuff, First Check (Tri-Cholesterol), etc.|
|I bought at an all time low and may or may not have taken profit at a 100%+ premium. But that's not the point.The point is Gormally was bang on right not issuing shares at £2+ and then informing the market the China order had not materialised.It's quite easy to understand why.|
|Listen to the call; he's hesitant around the issue whilst trying to imply all is still on track - my notes from the call had quite a few ???? re the remaining $2m (China deal). I've said previously that I decided to hold. But I aint the one who was very giddy to frequently point out on here how they bought at an all time low and how the placing is perfectly logical at $1.20 and $1.40. You had a chance to make 100%-150% return in less than 12 months?|
|"Q4 Outlook..The Company believes that Q4 will continue to show growth with continuing improvements in domestic product sales, the remaining $2,000,000 due under the Novotek order for PIFA Heparin/PF4 Rapid Assay products in China.." Nov Q3It is misleading to claim the company suggested there was little to no chance of the China deal arriving.Yet you knew the $2m order was not arriving, equivalent to 70% of realised 2016 sales at high margin, and you are surprised the shares have fallen.More fool you.|
|I didn't; I posted up here around the time of the first news re the proposed placing that I could have sold for £2.20 (or thereabouts) but decided to hold on - I did not expect the placing to be 2/3rds lower than the nasdaq share price at the time. But I aint the one who was frequently posting about buying at an all time low and the price of the placings being logical.
(there's a difference in how he deals with the china deal in the calls for q2 & q3; it was apparent following the (edit) q3 call that there was little to no chance of the deal being completed in 2016)|
|Mcm - I don't recall saying it was so apparent the china deal would fail.That was your point (after the event).So if it was so obvious China was a lemon, why didn't you sell? Norbus wants to see a specific post.|
|That the China deal wouldn't be completed in 2016 - the difference with what he said between the conference calls for Q2 and Q3 - what revenue was then likely to be for the year and why the placing at $1.20 & $1.40 is logical?|
|Norbus - 12 May 2016 - 11:28 - 3179 of 3495 - "You are right but missing the main point. AKR has a new controlling boss, who will fix it through a shell operation. I guess he only bought in for the quote. That was what I expected Nicolette to do, The company shares will go to a premium and hit a takeover trail. There will be money to make off this level."Shares rising - norbus positive.Shares falling - norbus negative.Recurring theme. Pointless.|
|China deal , as for most others was a lemon?|
|If what was so apparent?|
|wigwammer, if it was so apparent why didn't you sell?|
|Shame they just never had time to give you a hug.|
|They were very proud of me for not tolerating condescending snotty prats|
|Mcm - I'm sure he aimed to get the price as low as possible. It makes sense and is the obvious conclusion. It is all a conspiracy to rob you of your shares, it is very dramatic, but also a little strange. Or perhaps he is just thick. Then again, perhaps $1.20-$1.40 was just the going rate for a company in the process of dropping a $2m contract, had little cash left and still has a journey to hit positive cash flow. Feel free to believe whatever you will.|
|Like the idea Algernon.
I'll have a pound on anyone BUT Norbus. The ludicrous levels of misogyny he spouts smacks of someone who is either ancient and utterly our of touch, or persistently rejected by women. I always imagine him as a pathetically weedy keyboard warrior. Either way I reckon I could have him (and I'm a lover, not a fighter).|
