Regarding the latter licensing rights, Dr. Ryan has been quoted as saying, "We are pleased to have secured this critical financing that has now enabled us to acquire the worldwide rights for the cellulose-based, live-cell encapsulation technology for the development of diabetes treatments. This acquisition is a major step in the continuing evolution of Nuvilex as a biotechnology company focused on live-cell encapsulation for the treatment of cancer and diabetes." Dr. Ryan also stated to Worldwide Branding, "Through work and partnering with Austrianova, Austrianova Singapore, ViruSure, Thermo Fisher and Inno Biologics, and additional companies in the future, Nuvilex expects to reach its company and clinical goals and objectives."
