Nuvilex Is Ready to Lead the Medical Marijuana Research Arena

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jul 29, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes in a recent article on its website that Nuvilex Inc.'s ( OTCQB : NVLX ) recent acquisition of all of the oncology-related assets and licenses for the use of a live-cell encapsulation therapy serves as a catalyst to accelerate the research engaged by its subsidiary, Medical Marijuana Sciences, Inc.

With exclusive worldwide rights in the entire oncology space, and with broad access to encapsulated live cells, management may elect to study the effects of multiple cannabidiol (CBD)-based cancer treatments. These studies would seek to combine the Company's highly efficacious live-cell encapsulation-based therapies used for oncology therapy, with therapies based on cannabidiol. CBD is one of about 70 constituents of Cannabis that are collectively known as cannabinoids. The medical marijuana arena is enjoying a great deal of attention and a growing cadre of investors and entrepreneurs as many prognosticators forecast huge revenue growth over the next 3 years as more states pass medical marijuana legislation. For example, independent financial news and data firm See Change Strategy estimates that the U.S. medical marijuana market is worth $1.7 billion and could reach $8.9 billion by 2016.

In a landmark announcement in mid-July of this year, a large-scale medical marijuana research study was just commissioned by the National Institutes of Health. This is significant due to the negative approach the federal government has previously taken towards medical marijuana. Observers may view this news as a potential softening of its position on marijuana which still classifies it as a Schedule I controlled substance.

According to Drexel University's website, Drexel has received a grant for a five-year study of medical marijuana and its impact on drug use and physical and psychological health among young adults in Los Angeles. It is the first large-scale NIH project funded to directly investigate medical marijuana use among young adults aged 18 to 26.

If these kinds of dollars are going to be provided by NIH, Nuvilex appears well positioned to be eligible to receive research lucrative grants or funding from other partner firms seeking to study the efficacy of live-cell encapsulation-based therapies used for oncology therapy, with those based on cannabidiol or other cannabinoids. Given that virtually no other firm in the space can match its clinical trials and oncology R&D experience, Nuvilex is primed to be a high-profile, go-to medical marijuana research force.
