Nuvilex Could Help Shape the Future of Medical Marijuana

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, believes that Nuvilex Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX) stands ready to engage in comprehensive research and development that could eventually result in landmark therapeutic success. 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. 

The Company is poised to meld its highly regarded live cell-encapsulation technology to treat certain cancers in clinical trials and other tests, with the use of cannabinoids which have demonstrated an ability to act as anticancer agents in various studies. Clearly, this live-cell encapsulation technology and cannabinoid combination is both proprietary and unique relative to anything the market has seen to date.

Unlike most firms engaged in research and development in the medical marijuana space, Nuvilex is not focused on pain management or nausea, etc. Since the basis of its platform live-cell encapsulation technology is to target the tumor, potentially inhibit progression, and treat it at its core, many cancer patients may monitor the Company's progress with earnest, especially those who claim a halting in tumor progression due to use of medical marijuana.

In addition, since there are likely few safety and toxicity issues with medical marijuana, the development time may be shortened. Once sufficient volumes of cells and product are procured the Company can engage in a series of proper lab tests which could theoretically lead directly to Phase II human trials. Given the success of its pancreatic cancer trials and the clamor for true comprehensive medical marijuana research and development in oncology, Nuvilex is likely to garner quite a following as a leader in the space which is fast gaining allies and proponents, as evidenced by the recent Barron's cover story on marijuana.
