BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Eaton Scientific Systems, Ltd. ("Eaton" or the "Company") a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pristine Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: PRTN) is pleased provide this outline of the market potential of Tropine 3 for the non-hormonal treatment for pre-menopausal, peri-menopausal, and post-menopausal women experiencing hot flashes.
"Menopause and the effects of hot flashes in particular are without a doubt one of the most significantly important health issues facing many women today, and as a result, the opportunity to provide women with a safe and effective treatment to reduce or eliminate hot flash symptoms is enormous," stated Michael Borkowski, CEO of Eaton Scientific. "Traditional hormone treatments have been shown to cause a dramatic increase in the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease. Improved awareness of these health risks has led to a high unmet demand for non-hormonal treatment options. As a result, novel non-hormonal treatments such as Tropine 3 are poised to overtake traditional hot flash treatments."
In 2010, the women's health therapeutics market was calculated to be worth approximately $14.5 billion. GBI Research, a leading business intelligence provider, forecasts the market to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.9% between 2010 and 2017 to record a sales value of approximately $24.7 billion in 2017. Novel non-hormonal therapeutics such as Tropine 3 are expected to become increasingly popular during the forecast period. Based on current and expected market conditions, the Company estimates that Tropine 3, if successfully tested and promoted, has a global market potential in excess of $500 million in annual sales.
The Company is currently finalizing arrangements for conducting Phase 1 & 2 clinical trials of Tropine 3 with the goal of final FDA approval. Additional information regarding clinical trial start dates will be made available shortly.
