RBCC Opens Talks to Help Develop Revolutionary Breakthrough in $60 Billion
Drug Delivery Market
NOKOMIS, Fla. -- February 27, 2013
Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) biotech division Rainbow BioSciences is
currently in talks to help develop and market a revolutionary,
sustained-release drug delivery platform that could soon make local delivery
of biologic agents and small molecules safer, more effective and more
convenient than ever before.
The company is currently working on a potential joint venture agreement with a
privately held drug delivery company developing the novel technology. The
delivery platform is being engineered to solve the problems posed by systemic
drug delivery, including oral and IV delivery. In many cases, systemically
delivered drugs can’t reach sufficient concentrations in target organs to be
effective without damaging the liver, kidneys or heart. Often, systemic
delivery also requires frequent, expensive injections.
The technology RBCC is currently reviewing has the potential to enable
selective, site-specific delivery, allowing for lower drug concentrations and
greatly reducing the risk of drug toxicity.
“Because it’s a sustained-release delivery system, patients could potentially
only need one injection every six months,” said RBCC CEO Patrick Brown. “In
addition to helping millions of patients struggling with chronic conditions,
the technology also has the benefit of extending the patent life cycles of
drugs, giving potential pharmaceutical partners a tremendous market
“RBCC hopes to conclude its due diligence work on the drug delivery company
and sign a joint venture agreement to begin getting the new technology into
doctors’ hands in the next few weeks,” Brown added.
