BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 -- Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes based on a recent poll, Nuvilex (OTCQB: NVLX) is beneficiary of many doctors' approach toward medical marijuana. The Company is an international firm engaged in using its live-cell encapsulation technology as part of treatments for pancreatic and other cancers along with the development of therapies based on components of medical marijuana for the treatment of oncology patients.

A key driver in the success of clinical marijuana treatment initiatives and programs is strong support and a real desire for the introduction of new therapies by the medical community itself. A recent poll published in the May 30, 2013 edition of The New England Journal of Medicine shows that 76% of poll participants are in favor of the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Interestingly, only 1% of the voters in Utah supported the notion while 96% of the voters in Pennsylvania were in favor.

This amazing figure bodes extremely well for companies like Nuvilex. Interestingly, while much of the attention regarding medical marijuana development and research has centered on pain management, appetite, and mood, etc., this poll, much like Nuvilex's focus was focused on cancer treatment. In the poll, doctors surveyed were given a hypothetical case about a woman named "Marilyn" a 68-year-old woman with breast cancer that had metastasized and were asked if they would give her medical marijuana to help her with her symptoms.

As noted above over three-fourths of those surveyed in the poll answered in the affirmative. Therefore, it can be assumed that as Nuvilex enters into comprehensive studies into the effect of cannabidiol (CBD) as a possible treatment for cancer, the Company should have no shortage of supporters from potential subjects and more importantly, from the medical community. Many prospective patients and their doctors clearly wish to see these alternative forms of treatment studied further and broadly used as a real therapy.
