Philip J. Bromley, CEO & Co-Founder Nickols L. Huang President & Co-Founder Craig P. Wang, COO & EVP Co-founder Virun, Inc. Established in 2003 Virun, a company overview
“ To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.” Isaac Newton Mathematician & Scientist Calculus “ Natural science, does not simply describe and explain nature; it is part of the interplay between nature and ourselves.” Werner Heisenberg Chemical Physicist, Theory of Quantum Mechanics Virun is a biotechnology company focusing on improving oral bioavailability of compounds and peptides in order to improve life safely and effectively. Virun has achieved the highest oral bioavailability of human recombinant insulin through its Mucosal Adhesive Penetrating Technology By attaching cell penetrating peptides to the active therapeutic agent, Virun enables LRP1 & LRP2 receptor mediated endoscytosis to achieve high pharmacokinetic profiling. Virun’s focus is not only profound within pharmaceutical applications, but has recently dubbed interest in fortifying foods and beverages with a natural, safe and effective nanotechnology for Omega-3 fatty acids, such as DHA and EPA.

Virun has recently developed technology that enables Omega-3 fatty acids to dissolve clear with no bad taste. Referred to as, nanotechnology, Virun utilizes a natural process to create small particles that reflect light and further prevent interactions that can degrade efficacy. In order to achieve a small enough particle that dissolves clear while simultaneously stabilizing further degradation, a unique technology allows the particle to accept both hydrophobic (water-hating) and hydrophilic (water-liking) characteristics. This system is a significant methodology used in order to yield stability that naturally protects the Omega-3 integrity. Food & Beverage Technology © VIRUN 2009 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Virun strives to represent itself with the consumer in mind; adults, children, toddlers and infants consume food and beverage products alike. Because of this, Virun focuses on the safety and efficacy of the products it develops and manufactures. Certain Ingredients/preservatives that have been used to increase the stability of Omega-3 fatty acids are not widely accepted into foods, let alone beverages. Beverage manufacturers world-wide do not accept certain ingredients/preservatives because of their toxicological profile or biological side effect that may occur. Virun uses ingredients that are natural, safe and accepted by food and beverage manufacturers world-wide. Developing technologies that are safe & effective has been Virun’s core value since inception and Virun will maintain that integrity throughout. Ethics © VIRUN 2009 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
