Nuvilex, Inc. Pancreatic Cancer Therapy Offers Higher Survival Rate and Less
Toxicity Than Competitors
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/13 -- Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB:
NVLX) has already produced impressive results from its two
independent Phase II clinical trials in patients with advanced,
inoperable pancreatic cancer. Two key results pulled from the data of
those trials, are that the median survival rate was higher than that
of the current gold standard for the disease and better than those of
other competitors' treatments when clinical trial reports are
examined. Furthermore, the overall side-effect profile (toxicity) was
much lower with Nuvilex's treatment than those of competitors'
Nuvilex's pancreatic cancer treatment uses the company's
"Cell-in-a-Box" or living cell encapsulation technology along with
the single anticancer drug ifosfamide. The encapsulated cells are
capable of converting the ifosfamide into its cancer-killing form.
Through two clinical trials, Nuvilex's treatment has performed
admirably with results that included a median survival time and
one-year survival rate that were doubled as compared to historical
data for Gemzar, the only drug to date approved by the FDA as a
single agent for the treatment of advanced, inoperable pancreatic
Digging deeper into those survival rate results, a finer point on the
data would be to simplify it down to real numbers. At the time
Nuvilex's clinical trials were conducted, Gemzar's historical data
gave patients a median survival time of 5.5 months; whereas,
Nuvilex's treatment during the two clinical trials resulted in a
median survival time of 11 months.
In January of this year, NASDAQ's Celgene Corp. reported the results
for its treatment for advanced pancreatic cancer at the American
Society of Clinical Oncology's (ASCO) Gastrointestinal Cancers
Symposium in January. Celgene's treatment includes gemcitabine
(Gemzar) in combination with their drug Abraxane, a nanoparticle
albumin-bound formulation of paclitaxel (Taxol).
