By launching the full stage of the vehicle in a simulated launch sequence, the startup reaches a milestone on the occasion of its 3rd anniversary

TUCSON, Ariz. , November 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Phantom Space Corporation (phantom)a space applications company providing satellite launch and manufacturing services to commercial and government customers, today announced a successful hot-firing test at Spaceport America in New Mexico.

Phantom’s Pathfinder test stage, powered by a single Hadley engine supplied by the Great Bearconducted a 60-second hot-firing test to validate the first and second stage systems that will be used in Phantom’s Daytona launch system.

This major milestone brings Phantom closer to its goal of launching its first Daytona rocket by the end of next year, four years after the start-up was founded. Further staged testing is planned for 2023, where the nine-engine first stage will be tested at Phantom’s Tucson-based test facility, currently under development.

Chris ThompsonPhantom CTO said, “I am very proud of the Phantom team and our partner Ursa Major Technologies who have achieved this major milestone in supporting the development of our Daytona launch system. The 60-second test performed at Spaceport America in New Mexico – our provisional test site, went very well. The test was completed for the total planned duration of 60 seconds with all vehicle and ground systems functioning normally, leading to a smooth shutdown. The Pathfinder test stage used in this test is a combination of first and second stage elements that allowed us to test all major elements of the Daytona launch system.”

The Daytona launcher will become the company’s workhorse capable of putting 450 kg into low Earth orbit for less than $4 million. Launches will take place from Phantom’s West Coast facility at Space Force Base Vandenberg and from Space Force Station Cape Canaveral and will service low-, medium-, and high-inclination orbits with routine flights from each coast.

Jim CantrellCEO and co-founder of Phantom, states that “This hot-firing test is an important milestone for us in the development of the Daytona launcher. The test proved that approximately 75% of the vehicle’s systems were in realistic flight conditions. and puts us firmly on track to test the first stage with its nine engines.”

Phantom plans to use mass production technology and techniques for the launch vehicle and satellite systems they build to reduce costs and increase the frequency of access to space for governments and groups. commercial. Together, this will reduce the barriers that prevent more organizations from quickly getting their assets and ideas into space and massively boost the space economy and ecosystem.

“The typical lead time for the orbital launch is around seven years, while Phantom is three years; the first launch is expected late next year. It’s a big day and today’s events today show that we are one step closer to helping businesses access space on their terms and in the most cost-effective way possible,” said Mark Lesterchief operating officer of Phantom.

Successful hot-firing test follows Phantom test purchase agreement with Ursa Majorthe only privately funded U.S. company focused solely on propulsion, for more than 200 rocket engines, including the 5,000-pound thrust Hadley engine powering the hot-firing test.

“Ursa Major is thrilled to support Phantom’s successful hot-firing test and take one step closer to flying our Hadley engines aboard the Daytona Launch System,” said Joe Lawrence, CEO and Founder of Ursa Major. “This is an important step in giving the space launch industry record time to market without sacrificing performance or cost. This step is just the beginning of the greater impact that partnerships like ours can have.

Phantom Space, using its own proprietary satellite designs, aims to be an all-in-one provider serving as a launch service, designer and builder of satellites, and manager of satellite farms or constellations.

CALIFORNIA CITY, CA., October 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — GenesisCare, a leading global provider of comprehensive cancer care, and Prelude Corporation (PreludeDx(TM)), a leader in molecular diagnostics and precision medicine, today announced results provisional from the AUSPREDICT register. Data presented at the Australasian International Breast Congress demonstrates a significant change (45%) in radiotherapy treatment recommendations1 when using the DCISionRT test, thereby optimizing management to prevent overtreatment and undertreatment of Australian women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).

DCIS is a pre-invasive breast disease that can lead to invasive breast cancer if left untreated.(2) After breast-conserving surgery (BCS) for DCIS, radiation therapy is often used to minimize the risk of recurrence. DCISionRT(R) is a new molecular test that assesses the risk of recurrence over 10 years after BCS and whether there would be a benefit to treating with radiotherapy. GenesisCare and PreludeDx have formed a strategic partnership in 2021 to bring DCISionRT to Australia for the first time and establish the AUS-PREDICT registry to collect real-world data to further the development of precision medicine and decision tools globally.

The presentation, titled Interim Analysis of the PREDICT Registry Australia: Changes in Treatment Recommendation for a Biological Signature Predictive of Radiation Therapy (RT) Benefit in Patients with DCIS, studied 232 patients from Australia who had received the DCISionRT test after breast-conserving surgery. Radiation therapy recommendation decreased by 70% in patients with low-risk DCISionRT score and increased by 29% in patients with high-risk scores.(1)

Chief Breast Surgeon Specialist and Director of Breast Cancer Services for royal melbourne and female royal Hospital, Melbourne, Professor Bruce Mannsaid, “Historically, we have relied on clinical pathology, such as tumor grade and size, to determine treatment plans for patients with DCIS. These data demonstrate that the integration of DCISionRT into clinical decision-making has a substantial impact on RT recommendations and has the ability to prevent overtreatment and undertreatment of patients with DCIS.”

GenesisCare Principal Investigator and Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Yvonne Zissiadissaid the interim results “demonstrate the critical role of DCISionRT in the clinical treatment journey of patients with DCIS, ensuring women receive the right treatment at the right time.” Our study underscores that DCISionRT is a promising predictive tool, arming clinicians and patients with the information to make informed decisions about treatment options based on a patient’s individual biorisk profile.

“GenesisCare, in partnership with PreludeDx, is delighted to present interim results from our first Australian study,” continued Dr Zissiadis.

“AUS-PREDICT’s first interim analysis is highly consistent with the US-PREDICT3 registry which has completed enrollment of 2,500 patients,” said Troy Bremer, PhD, scientific director of PreludeDx. “In registry studies in both countries, DCISionRT was the most influential single factor in changing treatment recommendations regarding radiation therapy after breast-conserving surgery,” Dr. Bremer continued.

“We are excited to bring precision medicine to Australian women diagnosed with DCIS and to continue their enrollment in the AUS-PREDICT registry. We look forward to the continued expansion of our global data and clinical evidence network for DCISionRT,” said Dan ForcheCEO of PreludeDx.

About the AUS-PREDICT registry

AUS-PREDICT is a prospective registry study designed to assess the effect of the DCISionRT test on treatment decisions in patients with DCIS after breast-conserving therapy. The study will recruit 1,500 women across Australia on the registry, who accessed DCISionRT after surgery.

About DCISionRT for Breast DCIS

DCISionRT is the only risk assessment test for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) that predicts the benefit of radiation therapy. Patients with DCIS have cancer cells lining the milk ducts of the breast, but they have not spread to surrounding breast tissue. In the United States, more than 60,000 women are newly diagnosed with DCIS each year. DCISionRT, developed by PreludeDx on technology licensed from University of California San Francisco, and building on research that began with funding from the National Cancer Institute, helps doctors better understand the biology of DCIS. DCISionRT combines the latest innovations in molecular biology with risk-based assessment scores to assess a woman’s individual tumor biology as well as other disease risk factors and provide personalized recurrence risk. The test provides a Decision Score™ which identifies a woman’s risk as low or high. DCISionRT’s smart reports provide a woman’s risk of recurrence after breast-conserving surgery alone and with the addition of radiation therapy. In turn, this new information can help patients and their doctors make more informed treatment decisions.

Disclaimer: Since the test was only recently launched in Australiait is not currently on Medicare or listed on the Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) in Australia. Instead, the patient’s tissue sample is sent overseas for California to a Prelude CAP/CLIA accredited laboratory for analysis. The test is frequently used in the UNITED STATES and many insurers finance the test there. Overall, the test is validated by Level 1b clinical evidence which is considered one of the highest levels of evidence.

Despite political tensions, relations with Michigan local officials remain civil, study finds https://infiweb.org/despite-political-tensions-relations-with-michigan-local-officials-remain-civil-study-finds/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 21:49:00 +0000 https://infiweb.org/despite-political-tensions-relations-with-michigan-local-officials-remain-civil-study-finds/ A new study found that relationships between local government officials in Michigan, as well as between local officials and residents, have remained relatively stable despite political polarization at the state and national levels.

A new study found that relationships between local government officials in Michigan, as well as between local officials and residents, have remained relatively stable despite political polarization at the state and national levels.

The Michigan Public Policy Survey– comprised of responses from Michigan’s 18,856 local governments, including city, township, village, and county officials – showed that 70% of local government officials are speaking constructively in their area among others local government officials.

“Although the tone of political discourse across the state and nation seems increasingly adversarial, at the community level in Michigan, local leaders report that civic relations and discussion of local political issues continue to be positive, with some even reporting slight improvements,” the report said.

Catherine Mullhaupt works for the Member Information Services Division of the Michigan Townships Association, where she said she and her colleagues hear from hundreds of township officials each week on issues facing their communities, such as zoning and marijuana regulation.

“People are respectful, even when they differ,” Mullhaupt said. “So far it’s been lucky in that regard.”

Only 15% of respondents, according to the survey results, say that relations between elected officials are only “passable” or “downright poor”.

The report also cites a 2022 Freedom House rating in which the United States has lost 10 points over the past decade in global political rights and civil liberties.

“Concerns about the health of democracy in the United States among political observers and the public are widespread and growing,” the report said.

Even with the tense political climate currently seen in the United States and Michigan, Mullhaupt said she believes local leaders can remain civil because they are not the government body “that could create some of these burning political issues.” .

The Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) at the Ford School of Public Policy has conducted the Michigan Public Policy Survey since 2009.

The results of this latest survey were compared to results from 2021, 2018 and 2012, and revealed that in 2022, a significant amount of local officials’ concerns are less about each other, and more about “what appear to be increasingly hostile relations between government officials and the public” stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2020 presidential election.

In recent years, numerous examples of these issues have provoked public hostility toward local government officials in Michigan, sometimes even resulting in verbal and physical abuse.

If the discourse between local elected officials and residents has deteriorated over the past year, according to the survey, two thirds of local elected officials still say that this discourse is above all constructive. 82% of respondents even rated the relationship between officials and residents as good or excellent, up from 84% in 2021.

Tom Ivacko, executive director of CLOSUP, told the University of Michigan News that one of the most significant findings from the survey is the “resilience to our democracy at the grassroots level.”

“We recently released a report that found that more than half of local governments in Michigan reported that their staff had been harassed or abused by the public in the past few years, and much of that passes for public discourse on national issues these days sounds like invective,” Ivacko said. “However, when it comes to local issues, our community leaders say things are still going quite well.”

Debra Horner, senior CLOSUP program manager, had an equally positive view of the survey results.

“Certainly residents and their local leaders have different views on how democracy works in our communities,” Horner told the University of Michigan News. “The good news here is that despite growing harassment from the public, our local leaders still believe that most civic relations are positive, and that’s something to build on.”

Local area leaders are often seen socializing, grocery shopping, church or sending their children to the same schools as their constituents. Accessibility to local elected officials, Mullhaupt said, can cause these rare instances of potential harassment in ways that state and national officials are unaware of.

“You can walk out your door and walk across the lawn and knock on your township clerk or supervisor’s door,” Mullhaupt said. “You know where to find them.”

She went on to say that with such high levels of political conflict these days, it is almost impossible to find someone working in local government who is not fulfilling this role without having the best interests in mind. of his community.

“They know their people, they are their people,” Mullhaupt said. “They believe what they’re doing is important to their community, and yes there are political considerations, but for the most part they’re able to put that aside.”
