It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of Artec, Inc. (“ATKJ”) because of questions regarding the accuracy of assertions by ATKJ and others, on ATKJ's Web site, in ATKJ's press releases, and in public statements to investors concerning, among other things, the testing of ATKJ's Tubercin substance for use in treating cancer patients.
