  RBCC Partner Therakine Presents Novel Drug Delivery Technology at Biotech   Showcase  Biotech Showcase 2014  Business Wire  MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. -- January 15, 2014  Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) joint venture partner Therakine, Ltd., presented its new novel drug-delivery technology at one of the world’s largest and most important gatherings of life sciences investors this week at the Biotech Showcase in San Francisco.  RBCC is partnering with Therakine to market and develop a revolutionary new injectable, sustained-release technology poised to vastly improve patients’ use of a crucial drug in the fight against drug and alcohol dependence. The joint venture plans to soon offer the only intramuscular, programmable release of the powerful opioid receptor antagonist Naltrexone available anywhere in the $142.5 billion drug delivery industry.  This week’s Showcase presentation could go a long way toward making the product’s successful launch a reality.  “We’re extremely thrilled with the response we’ve received from attendees,” said RBCC CEO Kimberly Palmer. “We’re already discussing the development of new drug delivery programs using this same innovative protocol produced by Therakine. I expect to begin talks soon with more potential partners that are well-positioned to capitalize on this technological breakthrough.  “The future of this protocol is extraordinarily promising, and it has a lot of people excited,” she continued.  Phase II of development on the drug-delivery tech is currently underway, focusing on micronization of the technology as well as extension of its sustained release time.
