PMCB - PharmaCyte Biotech Inc.
Effective January 6, 2015, Nuvilex, Inc. ("Company") changed its legal corporate name to "PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc." The name change was effected through a short-form merger pursuant to Section 92A.180 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. A wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company was merged with and into the Company, with the Company as the surviving entity of the merger.
PharmaCyte Biotech is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing and preparing to commercialize treatments for cancer and diabetes based upon a proprietary cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology known as Cell-in-a-Box®. This unique and patented technology will be used as a platform upon which treatments for several types of cancer, including advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, and diabetes are being built.
PharmaCyte Biotech's treatment for pancreatic cancer involves low doses of the well-known anticancer prodrug ifosfamide, together with encapsulated live cells, which convert ifosfamide into its active or "cancer-killing" form. These capsules are placed as close to the cancerous tumor as possible to enable the delivery of the highest levels of the cancer-killing drug at the source of the cancer. This "targeted chemotherapy" has proven remarkably effective in past clinical trials. In addition, PharmaCyte Biotech is working towards improving the quality of life for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and on treatments for other types of solid cancerous tumors.
PharmaCyte Biotech holds the exclusive, worldwide rights to use the Cell-in-a-Box® cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology for the development of a treatment for pancreatic cancer. PharmaCyte Biotech is using its pancreatic cancer treatment (the combination of the Cell-in-a-Box® technology with low doses of the anticancer prodrug ifosfamide) in an attempt to combat pancreatic cancer on two fronts. On the basis of previous Phase 1/2 and Phase 2 clinical trials, this treatment has been shown to be safe and effective in patients with advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer.
Effectiveness of PharmaCyte Biotech's Treatment in Alleviating Symptoms Associated with Pancreatic Cancer and other Abdominal Cancers
PharmaCyte Biotech is tackling the two major disease-associated symptoms that are suffered by patients with pancreatic cancer, namely the intractable and virtually untreatable pain and the accumulation of fluid (known as malignant ascites) in the abdomen that is extremely uncomfortable for patients with pancreatic cancer. Because this ascites fluid can contain cancer cells and these cells can seed and form new tumors, oncologists must remove ascites fluid on a regular and frequent basis. This is costly and painful.
The first preclinical study on the accumulation of ascites fluid has just been completed in the United States by Translational Drug Development (TD2), one of the premier Contract Research Organizations (CRO) in the U.S. that specializes in the development of cancer drugs and treatments. In this study, a mouse model system was used in which immunosuppressed mice were implanted with human ovarian tumor cells. These cells were chosen because they grow rapidly and produce significant amounts of ascites fluid.
