Expanded Patents Highlight Treatment Potential for a Wide Array of Cancers

SILVER SPRING, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB:NVLX), an emerging international biotechnology provider of cell and gene therapy solutions, including encapsulation of live cells and services through their associate SG Austria, released additional information today about the therapeutic potential surrounding the recently described patent ownership for its ability to treat a wide array of cancers and other diseases through antibody and antibody-like protein therapy.

Key parts of this family of patents are its ability to encapsulate and implant live cells proficient at producing unique proteins to treat specific diseases. Once implanted, the living cells will supply continuous quantities of critical therapeutic proteins, such as antibodies or antibody-like molecules.

Through extensive design and research, the ability to have continuous production will avoid typical peaks and troughs associated with standard injections, which make this such a powerful delivery method and can be used to treat an extremely wide variety of diseases. This includes diseases as diverse as Alzheimer’s, cancer, inflammatory diseases, pain management and others.

One critically useful aspect of encapsulation is its ability to be used for biotechnology and major pharmaceutical company’s antibody products already in use. This includes products in the multi-billion dollar cancer market such as: Avastin, Bexxar, CamPath, Erbitux, Herceptin, Mylotarg, Panorex, Rituxan and Zevalin through a single placement of encapsulated live antibody-expressing cells.

Dr. Robert F. Ryan, President and CEO, commented, “Through strategic planning, use of encapsulated cells producing existing treatment related proteins has and will continue to strengthen SG Austria and thereby Nuvilex. We believe this will ultimately allow Nuvilex to move many things ahead at full speed in the New Year. We plan to expand use of encapsulated cells for the clinical setting in the New Year and are already planning with companies to achieve this treatment potential. Lastly, Nuvilex and SG Austria wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.”
