Only days after signing a joint venture agreement with cutting-edge drug delivery innovators TheraKine, Rainbow BioSciences, the biotech subsidiary of Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) is working hard to ensure that the partnership will be a fruitful one. Already, the company is searching for new targets that would benefit from adding licenses for the drug delivery protocols TheraKine and RBCC plan to roll out.
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.
In order to capture a piece of that growth, RBCC is seeking out healthcare providers for whom TheraKine’s advanced sustained-release delivery system could yield significant returns for their clients. TheraKine has developed and 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.
“Licensing this incredible new platform is going to be one of the key opportunities to making this a successful partnership,” said RBCC CEO Patrick Brown. “It’s a top priority for our company moving forward. The potential is limitless.”Rainbow BioSciences develops and markets new medical and research technology innovations to compete in a fast-growing industry alongside companies such as Bristol Myers Squibb Co.
