BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/13 -- Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, believes that a slew of recent activity which has occurred in the nanomedicine, or nanobiotechnology industry, bodes well for Nuvilex Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX). The Company 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.
According to a recent Reuters article, nanomedicine is defined as: "The ability to encapsulate potent drugs in tiny particles measuring billionths of a meter in diameter is opening up new options for super-accurate drug delivery, increasing precision hits at the site of disease with, hopefully, fewer side effects."
It sounds very much like the definition for Nuvilex's Cell-in-a-Box technology.
In the past two months alone, privately held nanobiotechnology leader Bind Therapeutics has closed 3 development deals with drug giants Pfizer, Amgen, and AstraZeneca. Significant upfront dollars have been paid and if all of the proposed drugs under development were to receive approval, it could be worth at least several hundred million dollars to Bind Therapeutics.
It is apparent that the methodology behind the delivery methods of both firms are remarkably similar, as is the primary targeted disease: cancer. In both cases, pro-drugs are encapsulated and targeted directly at the tumor with greater efficacy than traditional methods and with far less toxicity.
Clearly, a great deal of attention and value is beginning to occur for firms developing tiny, targeted delivery systems to treat major diseases like cancer. As Nuvilex edges closer to developing protocols for future trials, industry observers may begin to mention the Company in the same breath as the leading nanobiotechnology firms.
