RBCC Partner TheraKine Hits Major Research Milestone
NOKOMIS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--October 15, 2013--
Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) announced today that its joint venture partner, drug delivery innovator TheraKine, reached an exciting new research milestone that could soon lead to big profits.
TheraKine is dedicated to developing an injectable, sustained-release technology that will allow any biological drug to be formulated for months of stable, controlled release. It's a platform that could soon make local delivery of biologic agents and small molecules safer, more effective and more convenient than ever before, and the technology took a big step closer to entering the healthcare market this week.
TheraKine achieved better-than-expected results in its preliminary testing of the duration of a matrix release of the drug Naltrexone, an opioid receptor antagonist used primarily in the management of alcohol and opioid dependence. If further testing of the sustained-release system goes as well, TheraKine could soon supply the only inter-muscular, programmable release of Neltraxone available anywhere.
"TheraKine is very close to marketing a new drug-release technology that could change the lives of millions of drug and alcohol addicts," said RBCC CEO Patrick Brown. "We're thrilled by their incredible progress and we're proud to assist in the marketing and development of such a groundbreaking new product."
RBCC's biotech division, Rainbow BioSciences, is working with partners such as TheraKine to capitalize on the incredible growth of the global drug delivery market by delivering new medical and research technology innovations in order to compete alongside companies such as Bristol Myers Squibb Co. (NYSE: BMY), Biogen Idec Inc. (NASDAQ: BIIB), Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT) and Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE: VRX).
RBCC is dedicated to delivering new medical research and technologies to a hungry global marketplace. For more information on RBCC's initiatives, please visit www.rainbowbiosciences.com.
