mal results of infection with these bacteria suggest that VGV-S may have the potential to treat sepsis, a life-threatening systemic infection.

Like some of our other drug compounds, it's based on targeted peptide discoveries made by Dr. Karen Newell and her team. TPT is our acronym for "targeted peptide technologies" and its mechanism is essential to several of our lines of research. Laboratory testing continues, both in the test tube and in animal studies, in preparation for possibly advancing this drug to human clinical trials.

Lyme Disease

An injection called VGV-L has been developed to treat Lyme disease, an illness that saw a 100% increase in CDC-confirmed cases from 1991 to 2006. Animal studies have been completed with positive results. We are now in the process of introducing our research to the FDA.

This research was supported by grants from two not-for-profit organizations that saw the promise in our approach. Last year, Time for Lyme provided the University of Colorado with $116,000 dedicated to our research. Turn the Corner Foundation contributed another $75,000 to the university during 2009, enabling us to reach this phase of development.

The proposed therapy, like several others in our R&D pipeline, is based on TPT and uses synthetic peptides to "trick" cells, making them vulnerable to the body's natural immune response mechanism.

Drug Resistant Cancer Cells

During 2009, Viral Genetics exercised its option for the right to develop drug compounds based on research published in 2002. That work seems to identify the unique characteristics of drug resistant cancer cells. This technology, called metabolic disruption therapy (MDT), is rapidly gaining attention as having the potential to offer hope to cancer patients. T
