SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX) announces discussions are at an advanced stage with one of the world’s most experienced cell therapy companies to acquire their pancreatic cancer treatment technology.
The planned acquisition by Nuvilex would involve therapeutic treatment potential for pancreatic cancer, an aggressive, invasive disease responsible for 37,000 annual deaths in the U.S. alone. This acquisition will enable Nuvilex to provide encapsulated, living cells engineered to target tumors in patients with minimal collateral tissue damage. In completed clinical studies on pancreatic cancers, this treatment protocol has been shown to double life expectancy over present conventional pancreatic cancer therapy.
Pancreatic cancer is a particularly insidious form of the disease because it often does not show overt symptoms and therefore is not diagnosed until in an advanced stage. Even the best treatments for pancreatic cancer often extend life by only a few months. Less than 5% of patients diagnosed with this disease live longer than 5 years. The company’s technology for creating, maintaining, and providing the appropriate cells to combat this disease will be rapidly activated once this agreement is completed.
Dr. Robert F. Ryan, Nuvilex’s Chief Executive, stated, “We are encouraged by developments to date in these discussions and are extremely excited by the prospect of bringing this technology into Nuvilex. It has been a passion of ours to aid in the development of individualized therapies and this incredible opportunity will allow the Company to do just that. Expanding on the opportunity to provide personalized medicine for patients with appropriate needs will ultimately include other therapeutic interventions. By owning this advanced therapeutic technology, Nuvilex will become a significant player in the biotechnology arena, will dramatically open opportunities for our interaction with other companies, and will enable Nuvilex to stand out significantly from its direct competitors.”
