  6. Date: March 3, 2018 The man behind Sanitatem Therapeutics: Alfred Friman Written by: Kennedy Casio Published by Project Discite Steam-cell therapy: In the late 1990s and early 2000s, there was an initial wave of companies and clinics offering stem cell therapy, while not substantiating health claims or having regulatory approval. By 2012, a second wave of companies and clinics, had emerged, usually located in developing countries where medicine is less regulated and offering stem cell therapies on a medical tourism model. Following the initial discovery of stem cells potential, there has been many who researched this further, but unfortunately few in the United States. Any research in stem cells, regardless of intent, is prohibited in for example Arkansas, Iowa, North and South Dakota; and generally looked down upon. One man, who disregarded the scientific consesus is Alfred Friman, who started Sanitatem Therapeutics in 2012 with the second wave and today boasts a market cap of $28.40 millions as of 2018 and today we sat down with him for an interview in his office in Panama, Central America. *** The interview has been edited to clarify questions & answers. *** For those unfamiliar with stem cell research, what is it? Stem-cell research is the continuous development of various therapy methods, where the use of stem cells, that is an unspecialized cell that can become one or more different types of specialized cells such as blood and or nerve cells, to treat and or prevent a disease or condition. It's seen some major developments since 1999. Out of all the fields in stem-cell research, we at Sanitatem Therapeutics chose to focus solely on mesenchymal stem cells, called MSC's, from umbilical cords. What is Sanitatem Therapeutics? It (Sanitatem Therapeutics) is a biopharmaceutical company, seeking to develop and commercialize new chemical entities, with regenerative potential. Our cellular therapies have been successful in producing to name a few cartilage, heart and liver cells but also heal tissue injury and reverse the effects of immune disorders. Another one of our focus have been to use this technology, by collecting data, to make human health predictions. So far we've been successful in accomplishing both. Who is behind all of this? It's obviously me, a handful of specialists that I've known for quite some time and various other local health care providers down at our office and clinic. We run the research and development section in the same building as our actual clinic. It's proved to work out fine for us. Where are you doing all of this research? We're currently operating out of Panama, Central America, but as of 2018 we've received a FDA fast track designation to treat major depressive disorder in the U.S., but only that and nothing else. Our treatment is meant to act as a ketamine-like antidepressant without its negative central nervous system side-effects. The bulk of our business is still in MSC's and that we will continue to do in Panama up until the federal government allows us inside the U.S. Who typically goes to Panama for this treatment and how? The typical customer is hard to pin-point. We receive customers from all classes, nationalities, gender and age. We're also seeing a great diversity in their health conditions. Usually they take the first and best flight down to Panama and get admitted. It's actually a really uncomplicated business transaction. I know of a couple famous persons in the U.S., actors and the likes who've brought family members for treatment. But also some folk who are at the last stop, in terms of medical interventions and come down to try our treatment alternatives. All in all, we've seen no signficant adverse effects, only variations in improvement. Why aren't you doing this research in the U.S.? Any research is illegal in some states and applied therapies in most. It's illegal for us to conduct expertimental therapies. The only treatment, with stem cells, that is legal in the U.S. is for wound covering thanks to a federal exemption. Regardless of our promising results. I believe, that the national conversation suffered a significant stigmatization, following the President Bush remarks on stem cell research all the way back in 2001. So I assess that this is a stigmatized conversation that we as Americans have been unable to have ever since. We've seen some interest in the conversation but nothing that would change the game. Just this year I've seen the FDA sending warning letters to a laboratoy in San Diego and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission issuing a fine to a health center. We're a business like all others, we're dependent on a net positive to continue, so we try and avoid the slow bureaucracy and lobbyists of the U.S. That's why we're operating out of Panama. Isn't it contraversial to attract U.S. citizens down to Panama for experimental treatment? It depends on how you look at it. Most people are ignorant about stem cell research and believe that it's all about harvesting aborted babies. That the cells are tainted somehow. But that just isn't the case, we collect ours from an umbilical cord with the parents consent and then the cells are multiplied in our laboratory. I wanna be diplomatic, of course, so we don't receive any repecursions here in the U.S. in the future. But this is how I look at it: the FDA is being used by the pharmaceutical companies in what's called chronic capitalism, where companies use the government to either deter or shut down any competition in the market-place. Today, you require an extensive testing, certification and then more testing of any new entity that you produce and that costs. A lot. In average, we're talking about $2.5 billions to get a drug to market. That wasn't an option at all for us (Sanitatem Therapeutics) at that time, nor is it today. And that cost furthermore, is without us ever selling a single product or treatment. So it's an emcumbersome system that effectively deters any new players in the game and alas ensures the monopoly of the already big pharmaceutical companies who've already acquired the funds for these tests. The big pharmaceutical companies are absolutely terrified of cheaper treatment options that cure instead of delay the onset of their problematic health conditions. Billions of dollars would be lost if we started curing people in the U.S., "heal a patient - lose a client". Big pharma is not interested in your overall health, just your pocket book and that's why it is painfully obvious that our federal government agencies no longer represent the people. So ultimately, one could say that it is contraversial, but it really isn't. Already in 2004, U.S. physicians, scientists and entrepreneurs had the opportunity to go down to Panama for this business and some did. We did it relatively lately, in 2012. What does your company offer that other don't? Well, the general concept of operations have been for a long time that, you collect mesenchymal steam cells and transfuse immediately. Any delay would have a reduced function and decreased efficacy in treating diseases. So what we did was that after we collected ours, we just decided to cryopreserve them, sorta like in a Sci-Fi movie, up until the time of transfusion in our patients. It didn't thaw or diminish so that was one of our first big successes. We're a small company and we're not really that special, but we get more customers than we can handle and most that we schedule with fly overnight to see us. Our reputation in terms of success stories proceeds us and so I believe that must mean that we're doing something right. It's just a matter of time before the national conversation back in the U.S. has to be taken like adults.

  7. Alfred Friman pictured in a U.S. newspaper concerning successful entrepreneurs in 2017 Alfred Friman (born January 1st, 1970) is a 49-year-old technology entrepreneur, investor and engineer. He is politically active in the Rationalist Homeland Workers Party, most notably in questions concerning free trade, freedom of expression and natural equality. Born and raised in Gothenburg, Sweden, on January 1, 1970, Friman moved to the U.S. in 1988, in order to attend the University of Pennsylvania where he studied dual programs and obtained an economics- and physics degree. He complete a Ph.D. in applied physics and material sciences at Stanford University in 1994. He acquired citizenship in 1996. He subsequently pursued an entrepreneurial career where he started a company trying to commercialize the molten salt reactor concept, first established in the 1950s. With relative success, he moved on to other projects with new companies (while still developing the ones he started), such as a highly contraversial stem cell regeneration program abroad in Central America during the Bush Jr. Administration, a more on-the-low quantum computing program for en- and decryption when predicting close to infinite integers for the National Security Agency and Department of Defense and as of lately a lithium-sulphur battery program for the next generation of energy storage. Simultaneously he became politically active in the U.S. and joined the Rationalist Homeland Workers Party, despite his views as a classical liberal, he's sought to influence the party in order to better adhere to a pre-1950 Swedish approach to government, small, that is. Ensuring that the macro-economy would automatically dictate any social security affairs so that the failures of the micro wouldn't harm the low-income citizens, giving free and unhindered to power to the individual for their own innovation and alas the nation's economic growth. Friman prior to a press release of his installment in 2019 In 2016, he befriended Nicklaus Wuttemberg and has since advised on several topics. He became the party's first installed Minister for County Research & Development in 2019, at the same time as his now close-friend Nicklaus Wuttemberg was elected the County Commissioner. Since then, he has resigned as chief technology officer at his previous companies, but remain a majority share-holder.
  8. Caroline Krieger during Operation Southern Focus in Iraq, late 2003 Caroline Krieger, (born 1st January, 1977) is a 42-year-old, Deputy Administrator for the County Air Administration. Introduction: Outskirts of Baghdad, 2003: It was a night flight and Caroline was one among four other F-16's providing escort for F-18 and F-14 strike aircraft hitting targets in Iraq. During the mission, the F-16 pilots received a "time-sensitive tasking", part of Operation Southern Focus, to drop bombs on a surface-to-air missile site. It was the first time their squadron had carried bombs during the war. Caroline piloted one of two fighters that went in to drop the bombs while the other two provided escort. Poor visibility forced them to fly at a low altitude. Through night vision goggles, Caroline could see gunfire and tracers on the ground. Immediately after dropping munitions, the pilot leading the formation reported a missile was tracking him. He ditched his fuel tanks to avert a strike. "It was a close call," she would reminisce in 2019. Childhood: The planned daughter of a married Air Force colonel, Caroline, was born and raised in River Falls, Wisconsin, on January 1, 1977. She later became the oldest sibling in 1982 when a her brother was born. The core family did not expand further and was a stable household. Naturally, as the oldest child, Caroline was taught, for example chores, first. Alas the responsibility landed on her alone, rather than her brother, to complete them even after he came of age. Caroline quickly learnt to balance out the impulse to act immature and instead enacted the demanour that of a serious adult. She was instilled that "discipline is freedom" by her father and embraced the philosophy. Through her younger years at school, she was on top of her game, at all times. Maturing quickly, she became an independent soul with her father's work ethic as a foundation. Caroline was popular in school and didn't have issues in connecting with her peers. She was exceptional at hiding her own ego and rarely ompared herself with others. This lead to success overall and particular in sports. She didn't expect to get praised and Caroline managed school with a remarkably silent resolve. Producing good grades without ever bragging to other about it, besides her father. Likeso, she handled her sports team with grace. At this time, she also learnt to be aggressive following minor conflicts and harassment in school. Doubt kills, was one of her father's words of wisdom and Caroline didn't have any time for that. The young individual was set to become an up and comer. Adolescence At the age of fifteen, she moved to Milwaukee to enroll the Aviation Heritage Center, where a program in aeronautics at the Sheboygan County Airport was hosted. The program sought to foster knowledge in science, technology, engineering and math trough the world of aviation. Moving away from her parents reminded her of her independence and reinforced the dogma that discipline is freedom. She flew mostly Cessna 172's with a fligth instructor through the years up until her graduation in 1995. Upon graduating, she immediately moved again, at the age of eighteen, to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Caroline certainly didn't have anything against moving around. What to others might have been uncharted and frightening territory, to her it was a new and thrilling experience. She enrolled in a free four-year college education, paid for by all expenses thanks to Uncle Sam, at the U.S. Air Force Academy, aimed for future commissioned officers. Krieger, 21-years-old, in Colorado Springs, 1997 She entered the Air Force in 1998 as a graduate of the academy with a Bachelor of Science degree. Adult life: Caroline moved for the third time in 2002, only to serve as a T-38 instructor pilot, for barely a year before deploying in 2003 to relieve pilots in Operation Southern Watch, an operation that had been active since the end of the 1991 Gulf War. The mission was to monitor and control the airspace in southern and south-central Iraq. Krieger's first mission pre-flight during Operation Southern Watch, Iraq, early 2003 Military engagements in Southern Watch occurred with regularity. Caroline and other coalition aircraft was routinely being shot at by Iraqi air defense forces utilizing surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA). During her deployment, an intensification was noted as the operation received a fragmentary order, renaming it Southern Focus not surprising as preparations for the 2003 invasion of Iraq was immiment. On one night flight, Caroline was among four F-16's providing escort for F-18 and F-14 strike aircraft hitting targets in Baghdad. During the mission, the F-16 pilots received a "time-sensitive tasking", this was part of Operation Southern Focus, to drop bombs on a surface-to-air missile site. It was the first time their squadron had carried bombs during the war. Caroline piloted one of two fighters that went in to drop the bombs while the other two provided escort. Poor visibility forced the pilots to fly at a low altitude. Through night vision goggles, Caroline could see gunfire and tracers on the ground. Immediately after dropping munitions, the pilot leading the formation reported a missile was tracking him. He ditched his fuel tanks to avert a strike. After her deployment she continued to serve as a T-38 instructor pilot and moved to Wichita Falls, Texas, and later served as the Assistant Flight Commander for Air Force Reserve Command’s 340th Flying Training Group, 80th Flying Training Wing, at Sheppard Air Force Base, TX. She had logged more than 3,100 flight hours as an Air Force pilot, with 400 hours of combat experience in the F16C. Krieger during a pre-flight of a night-flight training mission in 2008 Change of heart: In 2014, at the rank of Major, Caroline suffered a myocardial infarction in her office, with symptoms such as back-, neck- and jawpain, heartburn, lightheadedness and shortness of breath. She survived thanks to early intervention from colleauges but lost her aviation medical certificate, following the check-up, to continue her work as a pilot in the armed forces. Having lost her certificate, she was delegated mostly office work and became mildly depressed throughout the year. But even if she couldn't fly, she still liked the challenge of managing flights and naturally applied to various Airport Manager listings at smaller airports. Armed with a Bachelor of Science, extensive education and experience in both flying and managing operations both in air and on ground it was an easy choice for most employers. With a certificate of release from active duty, she began working at McKenzie Field Airport in Grapeseed, San Andreas, from 2015 to 2017, when she moved on up in the world of work as Deputy Airport Manager for the Los Santos International Airport. As of 2019, she was invited to work for the County Air Administrator, as the Deputy Administrator.
