CAPE CORAL, Fla., Oct. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nature's Bioceuticals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mistral Ventures (MILV.pk), has entered into the $8.4 billion market chronic obstructive pulmonary disease market (COPD) with the completed acquisition of a ground breaking Breathing Formula. This all natural, non-synthetic, medicine was developed for the treatment of COPD, the two most common forms of which are Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis. We believe that there is no other product currently available that can achieve the same results.
Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues finds that, through 2019, an expanding aging population and increases in diagnosis and drug treatment will fuel steady 4.6 percent annual growth in the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) drug market.
The Pharmacor 2010 findings from the topic titled Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease reveal that the COPD drug market, which totaled nearly $8.4 billion in 2009, will reach more than $13 billion in 2019 in the USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK and Japan. The findings also reveal that the drug-treated COPD population will increase by nearly 6 million patients over the next decade. Although two maintenance therapies currently dominate the COPD market—GlaxoSmithKline's Advair/Seretide/Adoair and Boehringer Ingelheim/Pfizer's Spiriva—the near-term market will become fractured owing to the launch of new agents and generic erosion of key brands.
COPD is the fastest growing cause of death in the world's advanced economies. Such is the scale of the disease that the World Health Organization predicts it will be the third leading cause of death in the developed world by the year 2020 – faster growing than lung cancer, heart disease and stroke. The disease has reached epidemic proportions. It is estimated that up to 600 million people may suffer from COPD worldwide.
Robert deZanger, CEO of Nature's Bioceuticals states, "We are excited to roll out our COPD formula. The market for our product is immense and the need is great. People afflicted with COPD have been prescribed repurposed asthma medicines to help them breathe. Our product should provide "natural relief", without the harmful side effects, to millions of people with chronic breathing problems."
Nature's Bioceuticals management is currently determining whether to go through the time and expense of filing an Investigational New Drug (IND) Application and New Drug Application with the FDA for approval as a drug or to market the Formula as a nutritional supplement under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA). If the formula is marketed under DSHEA the company will not be able to make any claims about the product treating, preventing or curing COPD or any disease.
If the product is marketed under DSHEA we expect revenues to exceed $12 million year one during ramp up and $40 million year two as we gain market share.
