CHERRY HILL, N.J. February 2, 2010–Nuvilex, Inc. (OTC BB: NVLX), announces today that Legacy Biotechnologies, Inc., its joint venture partner in Reme-Flu™, has received its National Drug Code numbers (50107-100-00, 50107-200-00, and 50107-300-00), from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its homeopathic flu remedy. A National Drug Code (NDC) is a universal identifier of any product that is to be marketed as a drug for human use within the United States. The Drug Listing Act of 1972 states that all registered drug establishments must provide to the FDA a current list of all drugs manufactured, prepared, propagated, compounded, or processed by the establishment for commercial distribution.
As a registered homeopathic medicine, Reme-Flu™ is intended for use at the onset of flu or flu-like symptoms and contains ingredients widely recognized to reduce and/or shorten flu or flu-like symptoms. Legacy Biotechnologies’ Syn-X9™ formulation enhances the body’s utilization of Reme-Flu’s™ active ingredients.
With the issuance of the NDC for Reme-Flu™, Legacy Biotechnologies is now preparing to manufacture, market and sell Reme-Flu™ for the spring 2010 flu season. Further details on Legacy’s marketing plans will be forthcoming.
“Legacy Biotechnologies has undertaken the appropriate and necessary steps to register Reme-Flu™ with the FDA insuring that Reme-Flu™, its labeling and packaging meet FDA standards for homeopathic remedies,” stated Martin Schmieg, Chairman and CEO of Nuvilex, Inc. “The registration process for Reme-Flu™ was exacting and time consuming, but was necessary in order to ensure that Reme-Flu™ could legally enter the marketplace. We greatly appreciate Legacy Biotechnologies’ building, registering and launching Reme-Flu™ with a commitment to quality, performance and customer satisfaction.”
According to the FDA Code of Federal Regulations, registration of a drug establishment or drug wholesaler, or assignments of a registration number, or assignment of an NDC number, does not in any way denote approval of the firm or its products.
