RBCC: Parkinson's Costs Expected to Rise

NOKOMIS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- With cases of Parkinson's disease sharply on the rise as the world's population ages, the costs associated with the illness are rapidly rising, too. Rainbow Biosciences, the biotech subsidiary of Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) is working on new solutions to help reduce the global costs associated with Parkinson's and other neurological diseases.

Experts estimate that up to 10 million people worldwide are currently living with Parkinson's, including as many as one million Americans. An average of 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with the disease each year, but that number doesn't include thousands of cases that go undetected or undiagnosed.

What's worse, the numbers are growing.

There is reason for hope, however. RBCC is currently negotiating a definitive agreement with Amarantus Biosciences (OTCBB: AMBS), a company that could be on the verge of revolutionary new diagnostic and therapeutic tools for Parkinson's patients and their doctors.

RBCC is working to deliver breakthroughs like these to the people who need them most. The market for Parkinson's drugs could grow to a value of $3.75 billion by 2015, according to a report last year by Visiongain.
