RBCC Praises Partner TheraKine's Fundraising Results in $60 Billion Drug Delivery Market
NOKOMIS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) today praised the fundraising results achieved by joint venture partner TheraKine, Ltd., as both companies work together to solve the problems posed by systemic drug delivery.
"TheraKine has done a tremendous job of bringing in outside funds to help push its innovations further into a hungry marketplace," said RBCC CEO Patrick Brown. "The interest in TheraKine's new drug delivery solutions is a fantastic illustration of this new system's incredible market potential."
RBCC signed a joint venture agreement with TheraKine earlier this year to help market and develop a revolutionary, sustained-release drug delivery platform that could soon make local delivery of biologic agents and small molecules safer, more effective and more convenient than ever before. TheraKine has patented novel, tunable technologies with the potential to enable selective, site-specific drug delivery, allowing for lower drug concentrations and significantly reducing the risk of drug toxicity.
As TheraKine concentrates on outside fundraising in order to market these technologies around the globe, RBCC is seeking out interested healthcare providers with clients for whom TheraKine's advanced sustained-release delivery system could yield significant returns.
The global market for drug delivery technologies is driven by biologics and medications that can't be administered effectively through traditional means. Some experts believe that the worldwide market for the 10 most popular drug delivery technologies (DDTs) alone could grow to $81.5 billion by 2015.
RBCC's biotech division, Rainbow BioSciences, is working to capitalize on that growth by delivering new medical and research technology innovations to compete in a fast-growing industry alongside companies such as Bristol Myers Squibb Co. (NYS: BMY) , Biogen Idec Inc. (NAS: BIIB) , Abbott Laboratories (NYS: ABT) and Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYS: 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/investors.html.
