BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 09/25/13 --
In a newly released article, Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, notes that for investors seeking a well-positioned mid-late stage biotechnology company, one may not need to go any further than Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX). The Company has nearly all of the characteristics biotech and micro cap investors find attractive and actively seek.
Savvy biotech investors typically engage a checklist of sorts in order to ascertain a given biotech's standing and worthiness (and occasionally valuation). These attributes include intellectual property ownership, clinical trial development and completion, trial performance results as compared with competing firms, size of targeted treatment market, mechanism of action of drug or biologics, applicability of approach for other treatment categories, management, third party/strategic partner funding history, and upcoming milestones.
Based on the list above it is clear that Nuvilex stands perched near the top of the mid-late stage biotech standings.
For example, the Company owns exclusive rights to a ground-breaking targeted drug delivery system that may be used to develop treatments for many different types of cancer. Results for highly successful Phase II clinical trials using this technology to treat inoperable pancreatic cancer included superior median survival time and one-year survival rate than those reported for the 3 approved pancreatic cancer treatments. Moreover, the striking results in the Nuvilex trials were achieved using low chemotherapy doses, which markedly reduced the side effects from the cancer drug.
The pancreatic cancer treatment market alone is in excess of $1B and given the potential to use the therapy to treat other cancers, Nuvilex is a pure-play cancer treatment stock. Plus, there are indications that the live-cell encapsulation technology can be used to treat diabetes. To that end, the Company is nearing closure of a deal to secure the technology for diabetes as well, substantially increasing the size of the market opportunity for the Company. Therefore, Nuvilex is no one-trick pony.
At the current stage, investors can place a check mark next to all of the boxes with the exception of a strategic partner. However, strategic partnerships usually are accompanied by the commencement or conclusion of major developmental events. As a result, a third-party investment/partnership with the likes of oncology-focused firms such as Celgene, Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and others is clearly in the cards, which makes Nuvilex's shares that much more attractive, ahead of such an event that typically drives stocks and valuations substantially higher.
