LISHUI, China, Nov. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Farmmi, Inc. ("Farmmi" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FAMI), an agriculture products supplier in China, today announced one of its valued customers shipped a follow-up high-volume order to Chile. The latest order is for the Company's popular dried Shiitake mushrooms and black Mu Er mushrooms. Ms. Yefang Zhang, Farmmi's Chairwoman and CEO, commented: "We are in a bit of a Golden Age for mushrooms, where several positive catalysts are aligning at the same time to create added growth momentum for both the broader industry and Farmmi. 2023 has seen a return to more normal dining and dietary habits, with the post-pandemic market reopening leading to an uptick for restaurants and group gatherings. At the same time, logistic challenges and higher shipping costs have returned to more normal levels. Lastly, bottlenecks from labor shortages that were impacting points in the cultivation process have also normalized. Those positive catalysts are providing added momentum on top of the growth the broader industry was already benefiting from as increased awareness of the importance healthy diets have on our immune systems was already helping to drive broader market growth. Farmmi is well positioned to benefit from these positive growth drivers given our track record for providing high-quality agriculture products, our strong brand name, established distribution network and existing strong customer relationships."

AI-Powered TIL Analysis by Lunit Unveils Prognostic Insights for Colon Cancer - published in npj Precision Oncology
AI-powered spatial analysis of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes using Lunit SCOPE IO provides accurate prognosis prediction in stage II–III colon cancer SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Lunit (KRX:328130.KQ), a leading provider of AI-powered solutions for cancer diagnostics and therapeutics, published a new study in npj Precision Oncology (Nature Partner Journal), using Lunit SCOPE IO to predict prognosis in stage II–III colon cancer via AI-powered spatial analysis of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). This study showed that Lunit SCOPE IO and the power of AI for spatial TIL analysis can provide clinicians with a practical and efficient tool to enhance prognosis prediction. Lunit's AI-powered TIL analyzer, Lunit SCOPE IO Traditionally recognized as a biomarker that can be related to cancer prognosis, TIL densities in the tumor microenvironment (TME) offer valuable insights into the patient's immune response to the tumor. However, the manual evaluation of TIL densities has been laborious and time-consuming, even requiring additional steps in tissue preparation, such as special lymphocyte staining. Moreover, manual evaluation is prone to variability between observers. The study utilized Lunit SCOPE IO, Lunit's AI-powered hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) whole-slide image (WSI) analyzer, to evaluate intratumoral TIL (iTIL) and tumor-related stromal TIL (sTIL) densities from WSIs of 289 patients with stage II–III colon cancer treated with surgery and adjuvant therapy. Patients with confirmed recurrences showed significantly lower sTIL densities compared to those with no recurrence (mean sTIL density 630.2/mm2 in cases with confirmed recurrence vs. 1021.3/mm2 in no recurrence). The study also identified distinct risk groups: patients with the lowest iTIL and sTIL were grouped as high-risk, patients with higher sTIL than the median as low-risk, and intermediate-risk group. These groups were predictive of recurrence-free survival time and were independently associated with clinical outcomes after adjusting for other clinical factors. This result suggests that AI-powered TIL analysis can provide practical and reliable prognostic information for stage II–III colon cancer. "Despite progress in colon cancer treatments, we still see a relapse in about 20–30% of stage II–III patients. This underscores the need for more precise prognostic biomarkers," said Brandon Suh, CEO of Lunit. "With the integration of AI, Lunit's innovative approach not only simplifies the evaluation process but also holds the potential to guide treatment decisions and improve patient outcomes with a tailored approach."

BEIJING, Nov. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- A news report from China.org.cn on Brown 's stories with China: &amp;amp;amp;nbsp; Brown 's stories with Chinahttps://youtu.be/Zi5W0XKzDW8 Xiamen University business professor William Brown is not a Chinese but an old China hand. He moved to China from the US with his wife and sons in 1988. His only regret is that he didn't come sooner. Why did he choose to come to China? Actually, when he was a kid, he had no interest in China. In his childhood, he didn't learn anything about Asian culture or history. In the 1980s, he used to read "China Today". Back then, the magazine was called "China Reconstructs". The magazine told about China's developments, the reform and opening-up, and improvements in many aspects. Brown wanted to see whether what it said was true. So he came to Xiamen City in southeast China. In 1994, Brown drove his family across some 40,000 kilometers in China and made a point of visiting several poverty-stricken regions. He recorded his experiences on China through letters to his family members in the US over the past decades. These letters home helped the Brown's family see an open and developing China. In July 2019, Brown, along with professors and students from Xiamen University, made a 32-day 20,000 km drive around China to revisit the places he'd seen in 1994 and to gauge the pace of the country's changes. "I was surprised when I traveled to remote places in the Ningxia Hui autonomous region and Gansu province back in 1994 that the government had already started building roads to remote villages," Brown said. When he revisited those remote places last year, he was impressed to see that the government had continued to develop even the poorest areas. "Every place we visited, from the Inner Mongolia autonomous region in the north to the Ningxia Hui autonomous region, Gansu, Qinghai province and the Tibet autonomous region in the west, had beautiful concrete roads," he said. Brown said despite China's changes, some people still have biased views of the nation. To counter those views, he said, it is important to tell the stories of ordinary Chinese people to let them share how their lives have changed. "The only way to understand China is to understand the Chinese people themselves," Brown said.
