Targeted Treatments for Cancer and Diabetes
HQ: Laguna Hills CA
Incorporated: 1996 as a neutraceutical firm. In 2013, restructured as a biopharma. In 2015 it changed its name from Nuvilex, Inc. to PharmaCyte Biotech.
PharmaCyte has licensed a medical technology called Cell in a Box, and is using it in early stage clinical trials to improve existing treatments for cancer and diabetes, by better controlling the place and time of the treatment’s release.
It is also developing new treatments for cancer and diabetes to deliver with this technology, some of these derived from cannabis (for cancer). The company currently reports little about these new treatments, but a lot about the Cell in a Box delivery technology.
Cell in a Box technology could eventually itself be a revenue-producing technology, with or without a new treatment. Cell in a Box potentially allows for more specific targeting of medical treatments such as chemotherapy to where the treatment is needed in the body, thus reducing the side effects in other parts of the body.
