BALTIMORE, October 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm specializing in the small cap and microcap sectors, announced today that it has published a new sponsored research article on PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (OTCQB: PMCB), a publicly traded, clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing and preparing treatments for cancer and diabetes. To view the sponsored research article, along with disclosures and disclaimers, or to download it and previous articles in their entirety, please visit http://www.GoldmanResearch.com.
In the article, analyst Rob Goldman discusses how success in PharmaCyte Biotech's diabetes treatment studies alone could be worth billions of dollars and change the lives of millions since there is no cure for the disease.
According to Goldman, "The global diabetes market for therapeutic devices and drugs is expected to reach US $114.3 billion by 2018. This figure includes current insulin injection and pump therapies used to treat Type 1 diabetes. As outlined in the article, the PMCB Cell-in-a-Box® -based treatment system approach could potentially replace these therapies.
PharmaCyte Biotech has the exclusive worldwide rights to use Melligen cells to treat diabetes. Melligen cells are genetically engineered from human liver cells and have been shown to secrete insulin in response to the concentrations of glucose (blood sugar) in their environment. A recent article published in scientific journal Molecular Therapy noted that when Melligen cells were transplanted into diabetic mice whose immune systems were essentially not functioning, the blood glucose levels of the mice became normal. This observation illustrates that Melligen cells can reverse the diabetic condition.
However, the Melligen cells take care of only part of the problem. In order for the cells to be effective in treating humans with T1D, they must be protected from the body's immune system after introduction, which is where PMCB comes in. Therefore, the Melligen cell line, when combined with Cell-in-a-Box® encapsulation, could ultimately become a treatment that has clear advantages over current insulin injection and pump therapies for Type 1 diabetes and potentially supplant these therapies.
One of the next steps is to engage in vivo studies using Cell-in-a-Box® to confirm the Melligen line's viability after encapsulation, and other parameters related to its insulin production. Upon successful completion of these Cell-in-a-Box®/Melligen tests, the next stage would be to initiate early-phase human clinical trials, which will be watched very closely by doctors and patients alike, and put PharmaCyte Biotech atop the diabetes treatment leaderboard.
