RBCC Explores Novel Uses for New Naltrexone Delivery Protocols

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From chronic pain to obesity, new research suggests that there are practically no limits to the number of illnesses that the prescription drug Naltrexone can treat. Biotech company Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB:RBCC) is working to make Naltrexone more effective than ever before.

For years, Naltrexone has been approved by the FDA to reduce cravings for alcohol by fine-tuning the brain’s chemical rewards system. Cutting-edge research now indicates that the opioid antagonist can potentially help treat symptoms from painful and deadly illnesses as varied as Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s and even multiple sclerosis. These findings have increased demand for effective new Naltrexone treatments from a wide spectrum of patients and their families.

RBCC is working on new drug delivery protocols that could potentially bring hope to millions of these patients. The company formed a joint venture with TheraKine, Ltd., to deliver a new injectable, sustained-release technology poised to vastly improve patients' use of Naltrexone. Phase I of the joint venture's research established excellent compatibility between the drug and TheraKine's hydrophobic injection matrix, as well as a highly promising release profile. Phase II focused on micronization of the technology as well as extension of its sustained release time.

Now, RBCC is focused in on proving the extended release profile’s readiness for market as research into the drug’s tantalizing usefulness continues to evolve.

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).
