BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes that a California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco cannabidiol (CBD) study serves as an affirmation of the premise that CBD can aid in oncology treatment, and aids Nuvilex Inc.'s (
Medical Marijuana Sciences, Inc., a subsidiary of Nuvilex, Inc. is in the formative stages of studying the effect of CBD-based cancer treatments which may be combined with its highly efficacious live-cell encapsulation-based therapies used for oncology therapy. A number of companies have engaged in some form of lab testing or even animal testing of medical marijuana-based or CBD-based treatment for specific forms of cancer. With each succeeding study, the industry draws closer to the commencement of large-scale, meaningful oncology clinical trials and Nuvilex, along with cancer patients, arguably remain the greatest beneficiaries.
Leaders of the aforementioned CBD tests found that cannabidiol, a relatively non-toxic, non-psychoactive chemical compound found in the cannabis plant, could stop the metastasis or spread, of many kinds of aggressive cancer. Lab tests demonstrated that by using CBD to treat cancers with high levels of ID-1, a gene that causes cancer to spread, the CBD could essentially 'turn off' the ID-1 gene. As a result, the cancer cells stopped spreading and returned to a more "normal" state.
Considering that Nuvilex likely has much greater experience in successfully conducting oncology clinical trials than any other player in the space, it is anecdotal evidence such as the San Francisco study that may serve to shorten Nuvilex's own overall research and development times. Thus, Nuvilex's combination CBD-based cancer studies with live-cell encapsulation-based therapies might result in bringing a highly effective product potentially worth billions to market in a shorter period of time than its competitors.
