HAMBURG, BOCHUM and DARMSTADT, Germany, July 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) announces CGI Sense360, its cloud-based, smart analytics platform that gives emergency responders holistic and accurate situational awareness in the event of a disaster. Using comprehensive data sources and augmented reality, the platform creates a visual situation overview that helps organizations more efficiently organize and accelerate rescue operations.
Whether a disaster is caused by natural or human hazards, up-to-date information is critical to safe and successful rescue efforts. CGI Sense360 creates a holistic picture of a disaster using data from a variety of sources across the ecosystem, such as satellites, drones and maps; infrastructure, geospatial, weather and environmental data; and online databases, blogs and social media. The platform's integrated and secure communications system combines augmented reality, situational images and other data to create a visual overview that is shared with emergency responders in a context-aware manner to enable faster, safer rescue operations.
International aid organization I.S.A.R. (International Search and Rescue) in Germany is a project partner in the design and development of CGI Sense360. I.S.A.R. is certified by the United Nations for international rescue operations.
"We provide international assistance in humanitarian missions; for example, after natural disasters and accidents or in war zones," says Dr. Steven Bayer, Project Coordinator at I.S.A.R. "The immediate availability of detailed situation images and current data is crucial for efficient, rapid rescue measures. And, it is precisely this information that the new cloud-based data analytics platform CGI Sense360 can provide."
Development of the platform also is supported by the European Space Agency (ESA). CGI space experts have worked closely with the ESA for about 40 years, including in Bochum and Darmstadt, Germany. CGI's current projects include the development of a centralized "pooling and sharing" system for secure satellite communications services.
"In rescue operations, analog processes still dominate in many cases," notes Stefan Wichert, Senior Vice President of CGI's operations in Northern Germany. "However, an exact situation picture and an unrestricted flow of information are indispensable in the event of a crisis or disaster. In addition, the time factor is important. With CGI Sense360, we offer a high-performance, intelligent and secure platform that meets these criteria. It delivers all the information needed for time-critical coordination and relief operations in near real-time. We see a very large market potential for our new platform, which takes the benefits of digitalization a decisive step forward."
CGI Sense360 initially is designed to support disaster rescue teams, for example, in war zones or in the event of terrorist attacks, accidents, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and forest fires. The solution draws upon CGI's extensive experience in supporting clients globally with natural disaster planning and recovery programs. This includes developing wildfire mapping services using artificial intelligence and space data for the ESA, delivering England's Future Flood Forecasting System, and working with U.S. states and territories to deploy data management systems for administering natural disaster recovery programs. CGI continues to develop the CGI Sense360 solution for additional situational awareness scenarios, such as for the military, police and fire departments, and organizations with critical infrastructure such as utilities, airports and container terminals.

Press release content from Globe Newswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.
ASHBURN, Va., July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quoin Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: QNRX) (the “Company” or “Quoin”), a clinical stage, specialty pharmaceutical company focused on rare and orphan diseases, announces that it has received comprehensive and constructive Scientific Advice from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the clinical and regulatory development of QRX003 in Europe, as a potential treatment for Netherton Syndrome (NS).
This Scientific Advice was received in response to a Briefing Submission document filed by Quoin to the EMA on May 26, 2022. Based on standard review periods for such submissions, which may also include an in-person meeting with the EMA, Quoin had anticipated receiving feedback from the EMA in mid-September. Instead, the EMA truncated the standard review period and provided this Scientific Advice to Quoin without the requirement for an in-person meeting.
Quoin CEO, Dr. Michael Myers, said, “We are very pleased to announce the receipt from the EMA of this comprehensive and constructive Scientific Advice for the clinical development of QRX003 in Europe. Incorporation of key elements of the EMA’s guidance into our existing US development plan for QRX003 will potentially result in a more robust data set that may ultimately be used to seek regulatory approval in both the US and Europe.
“While we continue to expand our network of supply and distribution agreements for QRX003, which now spans 60 countries, following our most recent announcements for Canada and Greater China, we remain fully focused on the clinical and regulatory development of the product in our core markets of the US and Europe. Receipt of this Scientific Advice from the EMA will support our development activities in those regions.”
QRX003 is currently in clinical testing in the US in a randomized, double blinded, vehicle-controlled study that is being conducted under an open U.S. Investigational New Drug (IND) Application which will assess two different doses of QRX003 topical lotion versus a vehicle lotion in Netherton patients. The test materials will be applied once daily over a twelve-week period, to pre-designated areas of the patient’s body. Based on discussions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a number of different clinical endpoints will be assessed in the study.
The active ingredient in QRX003 is a broad-spectrum serine protease inhibitor, whose mechanism of action is intended to down-regulate the hyperactivity of skin kallikreins leading to a more normalized rate of skin shedding. If proven to be safe and effective, long term daily application of QRX003 could lead to the development of a more normally functioning skin barrier and a significant improvement in the quality of life of Netherton patients.
In conjunction with the company’s strategy of self-commercializing its portfolio of products in the U.S. and Europe, Quoin has established a global network of marketing partnerships for QRX003 in 60 countries that will help support its mission of ensuring that every patient, everywhere, can access Quoin’s products, once approved.
