Date:9/14/2007

PLANTATION, Fla., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Viragen, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: VRAI) and its majority-owned subsidiary, Viragen International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: VRGE), today jointly announced that Viragen International's wholly-owned subsidiary, ViraNative AB, located in Umea, Sweden, filed an application seeking protection under the bankruptcy laws of Sweden. ViraNative manufactures Multiferon(R), a multi-subtype, human alpha interferon.

The bankruptcy application was filed in the District Court of Umea, under Case Number K1767-07. The application was filed because ViraNative was unable to pay taxes and other debts.

The bankruptcy court has appointed Anders Bergman of Ackordscentralen Norrland AB as bankruptcy administrator for ViraNative. It is the responsibility of the administrator to inventory the assets of the bankrupt and to identify the creditors and the amount of their claims. The bankruptcy administrator will also seek to identify purchasers for the assets of ViraNative and process their orderly liquidation and sale in accordance with Swedish laws. Mr. Bergman can be reached by telephone at: +46 (0) 90-70 62 00; and by email at: anders.bergman@ackordscentralen.se.

While Viragen, Inc. continues to seek new sources of working capital to fund its operations, and the operations of Viragen International, Inc., the Companies do not intend to fund further operations of ViraNative during the bankruptcy process. Therefore, ViraNative's operations may be disrupted or halted. Viragen, Inc. and Viragen International, Inc. are monitoring the bankruptcy proceedings but at this stage cannot predict what impact the proceedings may have on their respective operations.
