BioLargo Inc (OTCMKTS:BLGO) on Friday posted third-quarter results that saw revenue soar 93% year-over-year on the back of the company’s Odor-No-More and BioLargo Engineering divisions. For the third quarter ended September 30, the Westminster, California, company posted revenue that surged 93% to $534,000, compared to the same period a year earlier. The company also said combined revenue from BioLargo’s operating units during the nine months of 2019 expanded 53% to $1,324,000, compared to the same period a year earlier.

Acasti Phamra Inc (NASDAQ:ACST)(CVE:ACST) remains a Speculative Buy following a regulatory decision to broaden the label for rival Amiran’s Vascepa heart drug, according to Mackie Research. Vascepa is an omega-3 drug derived from fish oil to treat severe hypertriglyceridemia patients. Acasti is advancing a similar drug called CaPre to treat the same condition (high levels of triglycerides in the blood), which is known to contribute to heart disease and strokes. On Thursday, an FDA advisory committee voted to approve a New Drug Application for Vascepa’s label extension -- which would significantly expand the size of the patient population that could use the drug. The FDA is expected to decide on the new label by December 28. “If Vascepa’s NDA is eventually approved, we believe the Omega-3 market should grow enormously – Acasti’s CaPre should be able to piggyback on this,” Mackie analysts Andre Uddin and Toby Ma wrote in a note released Thursday.

The company recently added animal health segment via partnerships to its current portfolio of human biotherapeutics including vaccines, biosimilars, metabolites, and viral vectors.”
