BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, notes that the current positioning of Nuvilex Inc. (OTCQB: NVLX) and its proprietary live-cell encapsulation platform delivery system is reminiscent of some of the greatest biotechnology success stories of the past 20 years. Some of the companies that come to mind are Genentech (the "original" biotech) which was acquired by Roche, Inc., Amgen, Inc., and Celgene Corp.
Genentech, which has a major focus on oncology treatments, has some of the largest selling oncology drugs in its arsenal, generating around $12 billion in annual sales alone for the company. It is the success of its platform technology that resulted in its $47 billion acquisition in 2009. Clearly, its broad success in oncology, notably treating pancreatic cancer and breast cancer, which sit atop the Nuvilex (OTCQB: NVLX) to-do list, indicate the huge value the market places on oncology treatment success.
Amgen, the world's largest biotech company with a $78 billion market cap, has grown in part through acquisition and collaborations with many other pharmaceutical firms. The Nuvilex (OTCQB: NVLX) platform delivery system could emerge as an agnostic and broadly used system that is licensed to other firms, for use in their own clinical trials and studies.
The Celgene acquisition of Abraxas Bioscience for $2.9 billion in 2010 appears to be a path that many investors could envision for Nuvilex (OTCQB: NVLX). Abraxas, which was noted for its proprietary tumor targeting technology, was acquired after receiving FDA approval for its lead product to treat breast cancer.
When looking at these leaders, it is clear that collaborations, strategic investments and potential M&A could occur once the Company has an approval in its quiver and other mid-late stage trials, ongoing.
