Clinical Study Shows Regenecare Relieves Pain and Itching of Skin Rashes Caused by Widely Used Cancer Drugs

IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 11, 2007 - The Journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology has published the early results of a clinical study conducted by Dr. Siu-Fun Wong, and her colleagues, which concluded that the topical gel, Regenecare(R), caused a statistically significant reduction in the pain and itching of a rash that results from the use of anti-cancer drugs known as EGFR inhibitors. This ongoing supportive care trial is listed on the National Cancer Institute Clinical Trials website (www.cancer.gov).

Paul Miller, President of MPM Medical, stated, "EGFR inhibitors form a group of drugs, sold by several pharmaceutical companies, which are effective in the treatment of cancer. However, after a few weeks of use, an acne-like rash often appears on the face, neck, back, hands, and/or legs resulting in severe pain and itching for the patient. We know of no other evidence-based topical applications reported in the scientific literature shown to help manage rash symptoms caused by EGFR drugs."

Regenecare(R) is a proprietary product of MPM Medical, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of RBC Life Sciences, Inc. (OTCBB:RBCL).

MPM Medical develops and markets a line of prescription and nonprescription products for wound management, through medical-surgical dealers, to nursing homes, hospitals, and cancer clinics.
