Multiple Indications Equals Tens of Billions in Market Size for Nuvilex, Inc.

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, notes that the market for the Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX) encapsulation delivery system could leap from the single digit billions in annual sales to tens of billions worldwide. 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.

The Company's live-cell encapsulation drug delivery platform has already demonstrated that it can significantly improve the efficacy and safety results in mid-stage clinical trial studies in patients in advanced stages of pancreatic cancer. Given the ability of the platform to activate pro-drugs and maintain a high degree of safety, management believes that the platform can be used to treat multiple forms of cancer, as evidenced in preclinical studies. Therefore, as the development progresses, it is not inconceivable that the size of the market for platform reaches the tens of billions worldwide.

Since great promise has been demonstrated in its preclinical breast cancer studies, it is possible that trials to treat the $10 billion breast cancer market are next on Nuvilex's list.

Each year, 230,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer. Interestingly, some of the FDA-approved treatments for breast cancer are being studied now to treat pancreatic cancer. However, to date, some of these treatments have demonstrated lower efficacy and survival rates in pancreatic cancer patients than with breast cancer patients.

Treatments that employ Nuvilex's cell encapsulation technology have demonstrated strong efficacy in mid-stage clinical trials in advanced pancreatic cancer. Therefore, it is possible that the results with breast cancer could ultimately show that the cell encapsulation technology can also be substantially positive, and perhaps even more so, for this indication than they are for pancreatic cancer. 

Finally, since the Nuvilex (OTCQB: NVLX) approach serves as an activator for pro-drugs it is possible that it can be used in conjunction with multiple pro-drugs at the tumor site or even as an alternative early stage defense against rapid tumor progression when used in conjunction with other modalities.
