NuGene International Inc (OTCBB:NUGN) is making a big move up on accelerating volume; the stock has come out of nowhere in recent days transforming into one of the top volume leaders on the entire bb.
NUGN hit the bb’s in February, going public via a reverse merger with Bling Marketing, Inc. who had tried their hand at ”becoming a wholesaler of jewelry, principally earrings, rings and pendants.” along with the name change to NuGene International Inc the new Company affected a 15.04 for 1 forward stock split.
NuGene International Inc (OTCBB:NUGN) specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing proprietary regenerative cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products based on adipose derived human stem cell and human stem cell media.
According to NUGN the US Department of Health and Human Services calls regenerative medicine the “next evolution of medical treatments.” The regenerative medical market, which includes cosmeceuticals and pharmaceuticals, was estimated at $7.2 Billion in the US in 2014 and is expected to rapidly grow in the coming years according to RNCOS Business Consultancy Services Global Cosmeceuticals Market report.
NuGene’s cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products are based on proprietary stem cell based regenerative formulations derived from non-controversial, adult human stem cell derived media obtained from adipose tissue. NuGene’s exclusive products combine its in-house advancements, proprietary technologies, and patent pending formulations. The company has two patents pending covering 15 unique applications and inventions. NuGene’s goal is to leverage its extensive knowledge and expertise to develop age defying regenerative cosmeceutical skincare and hair care products in addition to pharmaceutical products based on the same regenerative science platform.
In March NGUN announced that its subsidiary corporation, NuGene BioPharma, Inc. has acquired all rights, title and interest in and to SkinGuardian®, an FDA-approved (monographed) skin protectant, antiseptic, and moisturizing topical cream.
NuGene BioPharma acquired all intellectual property held by SkinGuardian and its founder and owner, Chris O’Brien, relating to the SkinGuardian technology and applications. This includes the patent under which the technology is protected, the company trademark, all formulas and derivatives under the patent, clinical trial data, and any and all other rights, title and interest in and to the SkinGuardian product. Under the agreement, O’Brien will provide ongoing consultation to NuGene International, Inc.
CEO Ali Kharazmi said “We see this FDA-approved topical cream as the foundation for a variety of topical treatments we will be developing that incorporate the use of stem cells to enhance healing,” Kharazmi continued. “This is a prime example of the type of synergistic acquisitions we intend to make that will expand our range of opportunities while significantly reducing our time to market.”
On April 6 NGUN announced the filing on March 30, 2015 of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. According to NUGN CEO Ali Kharazmi. “Among our important milestones:
