Nuvilex Inc.’s (OTCQB: NVLX) announced it could obtain an accelerated FDA approval of its pancreatic cancer treatment if it can produce the same strong results in an announced Phase 2b clinical trial.
The results were produced in two separate Phase 1/2 trials using the combination of the Cell-in-a-Box(R) technology with the anticancer drug ifosfamide.
A positive press release from the Silver Spring, Md.–based company suggested that "the market may want to start connecting the dots with this international biotech because as Nuvilex releases each piece of its story, the path is leading to more and more impressive hands guiding Cell-in-a-Box(R) and Nuvilex right to the FDA's door. In fact, given pancreatic cancer is so deadly, it could be sooner rather than later that the medical community becomes familiar with the company in one form or another."
According to Nuvilex, it just named Clinical Network Services Pty Ltd (CNS) as its Contract Research Organization (CRO) for late phase trials, the same company that successfully took the Cell-in-a-Box(R) technology combined with ifosfamide through Phase 1 & 2 clinical trials.
To Work With Dr. Daniel Von Hoff
In addition, Nuvilex announced that would be working with Dr. Daniel Von Hoff, a leading figure in pancreatic cancer, to develop its pancreatic cancer and other treatments utilizing its Cell-in-a-Box(R) technology. These are just the latest of several upbeat press releases from the company that is working on optimizing the anticancer effectiveness of cannabinoids.
Gets $2 Million in Initial Funding
On Feb. 24, the company announced that Lincoln Park Capital purchased 8 million in restricted shares of Nuvilex in exchange for an initial $2 million out of $27 million set aside to advance the company's late-phase pancreatic cancer clinical trials.
Over the last year Nuvilex has issued a bevy of positive press releases about how it is positioning itself and recruiting and hiring the top researchers in the medical-marijuana field. But so far, the company has not produced any concrete products or services for the industry. Neville’s cannabis business appears to still be in the developmental stage. Still, it has hired the brain power that eventually could make it a real player.
On Apr. 18, NVLX’s share price closed at 35 cents, up 7 cents from its close of 28 cents the previous day.
