A grassroots Colorado movement calling for new “Floyd Rights” laws that protect human dignity during detainment and arrest will add its voice to a chorus calling for more aggressive police reform.

Press Release updated: Aug 26, 2020 11:46 EDT


This Friday, Aug. 28, advocates from across the US will gather with Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network (NAN) for the “Commitment: Get your Knee Off our Necks” March on Washington.

A grassroots Colorado movement calling for new “Floyd Rights” laws that protect human dignity during detainment and arrest will add its voice to a chorus calling for more aggressive police reform. 

“The physical act of taking a suspect into custody is a moment of extreme vulnerability, fear and uncertainty for many people in America,” says Floyd Rights co-founder Dr. Stuart Lord. “Floyd Rights curtail the use of force by police and substantially limit when the police may ever use excessive or lethal force.”

“The codification of Floyd Rights will reframe the way police interact with the public,” says Floyd Rights co-founder Douglas Katich, “and, in turn, how the public perceive the police – from serve and protect to serve and respect.”

The Floyd Rights movement advocates changing the legal standard when police may use force to conform to the European Convention on Human Rights, which allows police use of force (any force) only when it is “absolutely necessary” and the means of force used must be proportionate to the lawful police objective pursued.  

In contrast, the U.S. minimum constraint on the use of police force is the inherently vague “reasonableness standard.” The reasonableness standard perpetuates racial disparity because the law defers to an officer’s subjective perceptions of threat, which are influenced by implicit and explicit bias and racial stereotypes. According to Douglas Katich, “quite simply, many acts of police brutality and police killings justified under America’s standard are unlawful under Europe’s standard.”

The Floyd Rights movement also advocates that police orally provide a detained suspect with a declaration of rights at the moment of detainment, akin to our Miranda Rights: “You have the right to be treated with dignity, respect, and without injury at all times. It is my duty to ensure you are not harmed. I will not use force unless it is absolutely necessary. If the use of force is necessary, only the very minimum force will be used, and excessive force will never be used.”

“Police must observe and respect our fundamental rights. If our rights are clearly defined, articulated and easily understood, this ensures their protection,“ states Dr. Lord.  According to Mr. Katich, “policing from a human rights-based approach will help naturally de-escalate and reduce the use of force by the police and this also promotes police legitimacy.”

The senseless killing of George Floyd and the absurd shooting of Jacob Blake spotlight the scourge of police brutality and police killings of unarmed people of color in America. Public demand for police reform has been elevated in recent years by the Black Lives Matter movement and also by current civilian protests happening throughout the country. Still, a long legacy of racist policing has led to a death rate for Black men at the hands of the police that is three to four times higher than for White men, says the American Journal of Public Health. (https://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/10.2105/AJPH.2018.304559)

About Floyd Rights: Floyd Rights is a non-profit organization established in Boulder, Colorado. Floyd Rights’ mission is to effectuate substantive legal change at the federal, state and municipal levels through scholarship, research and legislative lobbying efforts designed to achieve a human-rights-first policing framework that promotes human dignity and the sanctity of life, while, at the same time, rebuilding the public’s trust in the police. See www.floydrights.org for more information about Floyd Rights.

Rigel and Medison Announce Health Canada Approval of TAVALISSE®, an Oral Medication for the Treatment of Adults with Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenia

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. and PETACH TIKVA, Israel, Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Rigel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: RIGL) and Medison Pharma (Medison) today announced that Health Canada has approved the new drug submission (NDS) for TAVALISSE® (fostamatinib disodium hexahydrate) for…

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. and PETACH TIKVA, Israel, Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Rigel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: RIGL) and Medison Pharma (Medison) today announced that Health Canada has approved the new drug submission (NDS) for TAVALISSE® (fostamatinib disodium hexahydrate) for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in adult patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) who have had an insufficient response to other treatments.

“This approval of TAVALISSE provides ITP patients and physicians in Canada with a new oral treatment option, the only therapy to address the underlying platelet destruction that causes ITP,” said Raul Rodriguez, Rigel’s president and CEO. “With Medison as our collaborative partner, we believe TAVALISSE is well positioned for commercial success in the Canadian market.”

In October 2019, Rigel entered into exclusive license agreements with Medison to commercialize TAVALISSE in Canada and Israel. With the approval from Health Canada, Medison intends to launch TAVALISSE in Canada in Q1 2021. In Israel, a decision on the new drug application (NDA) is anticipated during Q2 2021.  

“Our multiregional partnership with Rigel to deliver TAVALISSE in Canada and Israel is a testament to our ongoing efforts to extend the reach of highly innovative therapies to patients across international markets,” said Meir Jakobsohn, founder and CEO of Medison Pharma.

“Given our specialization in delivering cutting-edge therapeutics, TAVALISSE is a natural fit for Medison’s expertise and will enable us to bring a much-needed treatment option to Canadian ITP patients,” said Joe O’Neill, GM of Medison Canada.  

Fostamatinib is commercially available in the U.S. under the brand name TAVALISSE® (fostamatinib disodium hexahydrate) tablets, which is the first and only spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) inhibitor indicated for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in adult patients with chronic ITP who have had an insufficient response to a previous treatment.

About ITP
In patients with ITP (immune thrombocytopenia), the immune system attacks and destroys the body’s own blood platelets, which play an active role in blood clotting and healing. Common symptoms of ITP include fatigue, excessive bruising and bleeding. People suffering with chronic ITP may live with an increased risk of severe bleeding events that can result in serious medical complications or even death. In addition to fostamatinib, current therapies for ITP include steroids, blood platelet production boosters (TPO-RAs) and splenectomy. However, not all patients respond to existing therapies. As a result, there remains a significant medical need for additional treatment options for patients with ITP.

About Medison Pharma
Medison is one of the world’s largest commercial partners of leading global biotech companies. Medison is uniquely qualified to provide the complete spectrum of integrated services for international companies looking to enter or expand their presence in international markets, focusing on Canada, Israel, and Central Eastern Europe. Medison runs a corporate venture arm with a dedicated research and evaluation team boasting deep scientific and commercial backgrounds. Medison also operates a scouting program to cater its partners and is an active investor in life science projects around drug development and digital health. For more information, visit www.medison.co.il and follow Medison on LinkedIn.

Rigel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biotechnology company dedicated to discovering, developing and providing novel small molecule drugs that significantly improve the lives of patients with immune and hematologic disorders, cancer and rare diseases. Rigel’s pioneering research focuses on signaling pathways that are critical to disease mechanisms. The company’s first FDA approved product is TAVALISSE® (fostamatinib disodium hexahydrate) tablets, the only oral spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) inhibitor, for the treatment of adult patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia who have had an insufficient response to a previous treatment. The product has been approved by the European Commission for the treatment of chronic immune thrombocytopenia in adult patients who are refractory to other treatments and is marketed in Europe under the name TAVLESSE® (fostamatinib).

Fostamatinib1 is currently being studied in a Phase 3 trial for the treatment of warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA); an NIH/NHLBI-Sponsored Phase 2 trial for the treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients, in collaboration with Inova Health System; and a Phase 2 trial for the treatment of COVID-19 being conducted by Imperial College London. Additionally, Rigel plans to launch a Phase 3 clinical trial of fostamatinib for the treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Rigel’s other clinical programs include an ongoing Phase 1 study of R8351, a proprietary molecule from its interleukin receptor associated kinase (IRAK) inhibitor program, and an ongoing Phase 1 study of R5521, a proprietary molecule from its receptor-interacting protein kinase (RIP) inhibitor program. In addition, Rigel has product candidates in clinical development with partners AstraZeneca, BerGenBio ASA, and Daiichi Sankyo.

The electric grills market worldwide is expected to grow with a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2028, starting from US$ 555.3Mn in 2019. An inclination towards healthy grilled food, changing lifestyles, and preference for homemade grilled food are the major growth drivers for the electric grills market. Rapid technological advancement is also gaining traction as now Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled electric grills are there in the market.

Rising preference for homemade grilled food in countries such as Japan, China, and India are the major growth factors in the region.
