(AMEX: HEB) announced today that the Executive Committee of the 17th International Conference on Antiviral Research, to be held in Tucson, Arizona, has accepted the Company's late breaker abstract, assigned number "LB-5", and scheduled in Oral Session VII on Thursday, May 6, 2004 at 3:45 p.m. Professor William M. Mitchell, Professor at Vanderbilt University, Department of Pathology, will conduct the presentation. The abstract will disclose the first results obtained from the Company's phase 3 clinical trial in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) with its experimental immunomodulator Ampligen(R), examining the primary efficacy endpoint, physical performance, as determined by treadmill duration. About the 17th International Conference on Antiviral Research The purpose of the International Conference on Antiviral Research is to provide an interdisciplinary forum at which investigators involved in basic, applied, and clinical research worldwide can meet to review recent developments in all areas of antiviral research. Specific topics to be covered in the program include synthesis and chemistry, biochemistry and mechanism of action, molecular biology and drug targeting, in vitro evaluation, animal models, pharmacokinetics, toxicology, and clinical trials. Within these areas of interest, there will be invited overview speakers, oral presentations, and poster presentations. The 17th International Conference on Antiviral Research will be held in Tucson, Arizona, USA. All scientific sessions will be held at the Hilton El Conquistador Hotel. About Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS is well defined by various governmental agencies as a serious debilitating disease in which patients suffer from multiple symptoms, including profoundly disabling fatigue with chronic flu-like symptoms. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has added CFS to its top priority list of emerging infectious diseases. CFS is estimated to affect over 500,000 people in the U.S., and an equal number in Europe. About Ampligen Ampligen is an experimental, double stranded RNA drug acting potentially as an immunomodulator and antiviral. Based on in vitro studies, Ampligen is believed to modulate the immune system as well as inhibit the virus directly. The experimental product is currently in a phase 3 clinical trial for the potential treatment of CFS and in two Phase 2b clinical trials for the potential treatment of HIV/AIDS. The FDA has granted Ampligen Treatment IND Status and Orphan Drug Status.
