Pharmacyte Biotech Inc (OTCMKTS:PMCB) is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing and preparing to commercialize treatments for cancer and diabetes based upon their unique, proprietary and patented cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology known as Cell-in-a-Box®.
PMCB has been around for years and was initially incorporated as eFoodSafety.com, Inc. in 1996 in Nevada. The recent move up comes after PMCB outlined 2016 milestones as it advances its new treatment for pancreatic cancer into the clinic in the United States with study sites in Europe and Australia.
The live-cell encapsulation technology employed by Pharmacyte Biotech is a way to enclose living cells in protective “cocoons” about the size of the head of a pin. Each capsule can enclose approximately 10,000 cells and the technology is considered a “platform” upon which treatments can be developed.
Dr.Mark Rabe, chairman of the advisory board of Pharmacyte Biotech subsidiary, Medical Marijuana Sciences (MMS) summed it up perfectly when he said ”The live cell encapsulation platform employed by Nuvilex is a unique patented technology on which treatments can be developed for deadly and debilitating diseases such as cancer and diabetes. The technology has shown to be successful in the treatment of pancreatic cancer in initial clinical trials using the conventional chemotherapy drug ifosphamide. ”
To get a sense of just how valuable this technology could be, consider a recent report published by U.S. based market research company, Transparency Market Research “ the global diabetes devices and drugs market was valued at USD 54.04 billion in 2012 and is estimated to reach a market worth of USD 83.0 billion in 2019 growing at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2013 to 2019.
Many investors in the Company view Pharmacyte Biotech Cell-in-a-Box® cell encapsulation technology as THE future of diabetes treatment and suggest the Company is a prime buy out candidate from a major such as Bayer who may be closely watching PMCB.
