ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TNI BioTech, Inc. (OTC-BB: TNIB) ("we" or the "Company") a biotechnology company pioneering the manufacturing and marketing of innovative therapies for autoimmune diseases in emerging nations, announced today that the Company is providing a second notice of TNI BioTech's annual meeting of September 4, 2014.
In making the announcement, Noreen Griffin, founder and CEO of TNI BioTech Inc. said, "Thank you in advance for your participation in the Annual Meeting. On behalf of our employees and Board of Directors, I would like to express our appreciation for your continued interest in TNIB. In addition the Company has received numerous calls from shareholders concerning voting for the annual meeting to be held September 4, 2014.
"If you have received your packet, and will not be able to attend the meeting in person, please mail in your proxy and ballot as soon as possible. We have received a very limited amount of proxy and ballots via mail to date.
"We have elected to provide access to our proxy materials over the Internet under the Securities and Exchange Commission's 'notice and access' rules. On or about July 22, 2014, we mailed certain of our stockholders a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, or Internet Notice, containing instructions on how to access our 2014 proxy statement and annual report and instructions on how to vote online, by telephone or request a paper copy of our proxy materials. Our proxy statement and annual report are available on our website at www.tnibiotech.com/investor-relations/proxy-statements.
"Only stockholders of record at the close of business on July 15, 2014, are entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting and at any adjournment or postponement thereof.
"Whether or not you expect to attend in person, we urge you to submit your proxy on the Internet or by telephone or, if applicable, complete, sign, date and return the enclosed proxy card at your earliest convenience. This will ensure the presence of a quorum at the meeting."
Promptly submitting your vote will save us the expense and extra work of additional solicitation. If you received a printed copy of these materials by mail, you may return your proxy card in the enclosed envelope, which does not require postage if mailed in the United States. You may also vote on the Internet or by telephone pursuant to the instructions that accompanied your proxy card or were included in the Internet Notice. Sending in your proxy card or voting on the Internet or by telephone will not prevent you from voting at the Annual Meeting if you desire to do so, as your proxy may be cancelled at your option.
Please note, however, that if your shares are held of record by a bank, broker or other agent and you wish to vote either at the meeting, by Internet or by telephone you must obtain a proxy card issued in your name from that record holder; otherwise your bank, broker or other agent will vote your proxy card.
If you have not received your proxy card and you are the registered shareholder, please call Kirsten Bartholomew, our General Counsel, at 1-888-613-8802 and she will assist you with this process.
About TNI BioTech, Inc.
TNI BioTech is a biotechnology company working to combat chronic, life-threatening diseases through the activation and modulation of the body's immune system using our patented immunotherapy. Our products and immunotherapy technologies are designed to harness the power of the immune system to improve the treatment of cancer, infections such as HIV/AIDS, chronic inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases.
Our proprietary technology, therapies and patents include the treatment of a wide range of cancers. Our most advanced clinical programs involve immunotherapy with met-enkephalin ("MENK") (sometimes referred to as opioid growth factor ("OGF")) and our Low Dose Naltrexone product ("LDN") or Lodonal™, which have been shown to stimulate the immune system even in patients with advanced cancer.
Even though Management considers any condition that results in altered-immune response a target for investigation, the Company will most likely pursue additional investigations for MENK and LDN as valuable candidates in the treatment of autoimmune states such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis; as an adjunct in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatments or surgery; and as a complement to antibiotics in the treatment of a variety of infectious diseases, including patients with HIV/AIDS, in combination with retroviral drug therapy.
