Viral Genetics CEO Issues State of the Company Update
Date:2/11/2010

SAN MARINO, Calif., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (Pink Sheets: VRAL) -- Our mission is to bring new drug compounds to the marketplace. And we've never been in a stronger position to deliver on that promise. We've built the solid foundation needed to take drug therapies from the laboratory to the marketplace. After years in development, we believe several of our most promising compounds are moving closer to clinical trials.

During 2009, Viral Genetics made significant strides on two fronts -- scientific and financial. Our drug compounds seem to be showing great potential. Additionally, we've built an infrastructure that enables us to use money wisely. We have retired nearly all of our external debt, enabling us to leverage any additional funding to advance new drug therapies -- rather than making interest payments to creditors.

Promising Drug Therapies

HIV/AIDS

Six international, human clinical trials found that our HIV/AIDS drug compound significantly reduced the viral load in some patients. That therapy led to the development of a second generation drug compound called VGV-X. We believe that VGV-X may address the reason that our first HIV/AIDS drug reduced the viral load in some patients, but not others. Preparing this therapeutic approach for human clinical trials will be a top priority during 2010.

Staph, Strep and Sepsis

Our new VGV-S drug compound has been found to provide an alternative to traditional antibiotics in laboratory animals infected with Staphylococcus or with high levels of Streptococcus. Testing during 2009 determined that some infected mice treated with VGV-S, made full recoveries. A control group of sick animals that weren't treated with this therapy either took much longer to recover or did not survive the infections.
