Date:10/1/2007

-Two 48-week Superiority Studies versus Hepsera(R) in Patients with Chronic

HBV-

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharmasset, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRUS) has commenced dosing in Phase 3 registration clinical trials of clevudine for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.

Pharmasset licensed these territories from Bukwang Pharmaceuticals, who recently received South Korean regulatory approval and began marketing clevudine in South Korea under the brand name Levovir.
