Mississauga, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2013 -- AllPennyStocks.com Media, Inc. (http://www.AllPennyStocks.com/) announces its latest article titled “Naturally Splendid Utilizing Encapsulation Technology to Deliver Foods Packed in Nutrients.”
Companies mentioned in this article include Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB:NVLX), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (NYSE:TMO) and Naturally Splendid Enterprises (TSX-Venture:NSP).
Companies have been looking to harness the power of cell encapsulation technologies for quite some time. The potential uses are nearly unimaginable, ranging from basic nutrition to infectious disease therapies to utilization in cancer treatments and back again. In short, the technology involves encapsulating a cell to keep it protected from immune system rejection as a method of more efficient delivery, increased bioavailability and better safety and tolerability profiles. Live-cell encapsulation involves a semipermeable membrane that permits bi-directional flow, based up on a simple premise of keeping the cell alive and “letting the bad stuff out and keeping the good stuff in.” Unfortunately, the technology hasn’t lived up to its expectations yet at this point, but that trend seems to be slowing with some significant steps taken in recent years.
Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB:NVLX) announced on Tuesday that it has contracted Fisher BioServices, a unit of Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (NYSE:TMO), for the long-term storage of cells that the company will need for future Phase 3 and other cancer clinical trials. Using its cell encapsulation technology, Nuvilex has conducted a mid-stage clinical trial demonstrating that its platform can activate the widely used drug ifosfamide as a potential new oncology therapy.
In a different area of encapsulation, “superfoods” company Naturally Splendid Enterprises (TSX-Venture:NSP) said today that it has penned a non-disclosure agreement with Canadian food ingredients distributor Calico Food Ingredients Ltd. to test the plant-based Omega products H2Omega and HempOmega created by Boreal Technologies, a company previously known at Canadian Medical Hemp Inc. Superfoods are defined as being very dense in nutrients, yet low in calories. Naturally Splendid currently has a lineup of six different hemp-based products for sale that are sold in a retail network of over 300 stores in British Columbia and Alberta, including Save On Foods, Urban Fare, London Drugs and more.
