FDA’s Record Approvals Bode Well for PharmaCyte’s Cancer Treatments

BALTIMORE, Apr. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm specializing on the small cap and microcap sectors, announced today that it has issued a new article on PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc.

In the article on the Company, analyst Rob Goldman outlines the impact of the FDA’s recent moves on the biotech industry and the Company’s standing.

“Biotech stocks have been on fire since the start of 2015 and there is no sign of the money flows abating anytime soon. The primary driver behind the rise in biotechs may be the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) itself.  Last year, it approved 41 new drugs which, according to the organization’s website, were the most in nearly 20 years. That figure is up from 27 in 2013—a 51% increase year-over-year.  Could it be that the FDA has become more accommodating in its goal of more swiftly approving drugs for treatment of diseases, especially those that are rare and serious diseases?  It certainly seems that quality of life, especially in the treatment of life-threatening diseases has emerged as a key determining factor, which sets up very nicely for PharmaCyte Biotech.”

Goldman further noted, “Of the 41 approved drugs, eight were to treat cancer and four to treat type-2 diabetes. However, 17 (41%) of the drugs were approved to treat rare diseases that affect 200,000 or fewer Americans. In fact, that figure is the highest yearly total of such drugs ever — even surpassing the previous high of 13 from 2012.   That is a great sign for companies such as PharmaCyte Biotech which is right in this sweet spot. The Company’s flagship technology, Cell-in-a-Box®, has recently been granted this Orphan Drug Status by the FDA for the treatment of advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer when used in combination with the chemotherapy drug ifosfamide at one-third the dose normally given.”

“Moreover, half of the approved drugs were fast track or breakthrough and nearly two-thirds were designated for Priority Review, meaning that the FDA saw potential for providing a significant advance in medical care, and set their review target to within six instead of the standard 10 months. Clearly this enhanced approach by the FDA has had a great impact on biotech stocks and bodes well for companies like PharmaCyte Biotech, should they be entered into any of the accelerated review tracks above.   In any event, the FDA’s current accommodative stance should continue to serve as a biotech stock driver going forward.”
