BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/13 -- Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, has released a research report which highlights the valuation for the medical marijuana segment of Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX). Nuvilex is an international firm engaged in live-cell encapsulation technology to treat pancreatic cancer along with the development and study of the use of medical marijuana for the treatment of oncology patients.

Nuvilex's subsidiary, Medical Marijuana Sciences, Inc., builds upon the Company's many years of experience in developing "all-natural" products for various uses by studying the medical applications of marijuana (Cannabis sativa) and developing treatments for serious human diseases. The use of Cannabis for medicinal purposes dates back more than 3,000 years. The components of marijuana that have shown medical activity are broadly known as "cannabinoids." Approximately 70 cannabinoids have been found in Cannabis sativa.

In the Goldman Opportunity Research report on the Company, analyst Rob Goldman outlines his investment thesis.

"In a number of studies, cannabinoids have demonstrated an ability to act as an anticancer agent. Leveraging the use of the Company's successful encapsulation technology to treat certain cancers in clinical trials and other tests, the initial efforts of Medical Marijuana Sciences, Inc. are targeted towards developing treatments for some of the most difficult-to-treat forms of cancer."

"We proffer that given management's deep experience in the development of clinical trials of ethical drugs, delivery systems, and live-cell encapsulation, Nuvilex will emerge as the de-facto oncology treatment leader in medical marijuana. Not only does this play to the Company's strengths, but the field is less crowded than the pain relief segment. As a result, we believe that the Company's medical marijuana initiatives should be afforded a market value akin to the industry average of roughly $70M."
