WASHINGTON-Tuesday 8 December 2020 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today, Xlear is filing a Pre-Emergency Use Authorization (Pre-EUA) Request with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Pre-EUA is a first step in seeking authorization of Xlear Nasal Spray as a new hygiene tool to help in combat the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Xlear’s Pre-EUA Request is based on initial data suggesting Xlear Nasal Spray may reduce SARS-CoV-2 viral load in the nose, and otherwise attenuate the virus. “Studies show that regular nasal cleansing may help reduce viral infections, including from the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19),” said Dr. Gustavo Ferrer, a doctor and global respiratory disease expert who has studied the use of Xlear Nasal Spray to combat SARS-CoV-2. “The concept is straight-forward: Cleansing the nose means less virus, less virus produces less risk of infection,” Dr. Ferrer added.

GENEVA-Tuesday 8 December 2020 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The two-month deadline set by the European Commission for the governments of Cyprus and Malta to reply to the letters of formal notice regarding their citizenship-by-investment pathways is approaching. In advance of this date, the Investment Migration Council (IMC) wishes to engage with all relevant stakeholders and remind them of a number of salient points.

This analysis of the European Commission’s legal case has nothing to do with whether one agrees with the concept of citizenship by investment. The vast majority of EU legal experts argue that the Commission has no legal right to become involved in how sovereign states define citizenship law.

The IMC has sought the opinions of several legal scholars, including Professor Dr Daniel Sarmiento, a leading specialist in EU competenc ... Read more »
