ReBuilder Medical Technologies, Inc. Offers Electronic Molluscum Contagiosum Cure
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ReBuilder Medical Technologies, Inc. (Other OTC: RBRM) today announced that it has negotiated an exclusive license from Molluscum Medical Technologies, Inc. for the nano- silver and electronic based technology to treat the highly contagious skin disease, Molluscum Contagiosum. With the introduction of the nano-silver treatment in January of 2006, Molluscum Medical Technologies has seen significant growth in the past 12 months with sales jumping from over $200,000 to $600,000 and continuing to climb. Molluscum Contagiosum appears as small warts, boils or pimples that have a translucent core. It is highly contagious and is transmitted sexually in adults. In children it is transmitted through play, swimming pools, shared towels and athletic equipment. Up to now there has been no cure for the disease.

This is very painful and leaves the patient open to opportunistic secondary bacterial infections. Prescription ointments are sometimes offered, but these can burn the surrounding skin, leaving this previously healthy tissue vulnerable to cross contamination.
Molluscum Contagiosum is growing quickly all around the world. Pediatricians have reported that approximately 10% of the new patients they see are diagnosed with this skin disease. Molluscum Medical Technologies, Inc. has developed a non-invasive treatment (http://www.molluscum.com/) that uses nano silver and a small battery powered device to stop the infection painlessly. ReBuilder Medical has been manufacturing the company's products on a subcontracting basis for the past 3 years.
"Now that we have observed the efficacy of the system," says Adeyemi Bandele, VP of ReBuilder Medical Technologies, Inc., "we feel that we can make significant improvements to this technology because of our proprietary nano- silver intellectual property. We can also utilize our electronic engineering resources to simplify their design of their electronic accelerator unit and reduce the manufacturing cost. We also feel that we now have the distribution capability to take this consumer-based product directly to the physicians in order to reach more users. So we are taking on the product as our own. Part of the license allows us to buy the technology outright in the future. We are also negotiating a potential merger with Molluscum Medical Technologies, Inc."
ReBuilder Medical Technologies, Inc. developed and markets the ReBuilder System for diabetic peripheral neuropathy, a painful nerve condition in the feet and legs. Current ReBuilder sales are projected to reach over $70M in 2007.
ReBuilder Medical Technologies, Inc. asserts that the market potential for Molluscum Contagiosum treatments will increase its revenues by $14M in 2007. The company projects a 200% increase in annual sales thereafter.
