PARIS-Thursday 15 October 2020 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As much as the security of business travelers is taken into account by large companies, when it comes to an extended stay, there are holes in the racket.

Indeed, in the event of a problem in a city, a company can quickly identify its business travelers present, thanks to its security operator (iSOS, WorldAware, SSF...), and repatriate them if necessary. On the other hand, travelers who are in that city on a long-term trip will not have used the same reservation circuits and will be very difficult to locate.

Long-term accommodation, or temporary accommodation while waiting to find permanent accommodation for expatriates, for example, is often booked by different people in the company, directly on several internet platforms such as MagicStay.com, Airbnb, Booking, HomeAway, and there is no centralization of information. This lack of centralization does not allow the real-time transmission of informa ... Read more »

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- GNT Pharma Inc. today reports positive top-line results from a phase II, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center study assessing the safety and efficacy of nelonemdaz in acute ischemic stroke patients treated with endovascular thrombectomy within 8 hours of symptom onset (SONIC).
