  1. 1. Multi-Target Protein Kinase Modulators derived from Humulus Lupulus ‘Hops’
  2. 2. Certain statements made in this presentation areforward-looking such as those, among others, relatingto the development, safety and efficacy oftherapeutic drugs and potential applications forthese products. The Company undertakes noobligation to update the forward-looking statementscontained herein or to reflect events orcircumstances occurring after the date hereof
  3. 3. Company Highlights Focus on pharmacophores with history of safe use Target small molecules modulating key metabolic networks Pre-clinical and clinical evidence supporting activity and safety Initiating safety pharm/tox for IND in Type 2 Diabetes Business Model: conduct Phase 1through 2a POC clinical trials and seek a partner 4Q2009: $20M Series A investment by partner, Alticor
  4. 4. Background Modified phytochemical extracts demonstrate selective protein kinase modulation 1st Generation Product : R200 (Tetrahydro-iso-acids) Mixture of 3 chemically distinct analogs Potent anti-inflammatory activity KDT500: most potent analog Large patent portfolio protecting our position
  5. 5. Intellectual Property PortfolioR200 >140 patents & applications worldwide Methods of Treatment Composition Purification/Isolation Process Indications Diabetes/Metabolic Syndrome Inflammation Arthritis
  6. 6. 1st Generation Product:Tetrahydro-iso- -acids Family (R200) R= Isobutyl KDT500 R= sec-butyl R= isopropyl
  7. 7. R200 Safety Cell free In Vitro Animal HumanMulti-target selective Cytochrome p450 Extensive R200 Bioavailable in humans (orallymodulator Studies- IC50 (ug/ml) Toxicology studies absorbed within one hour & -indicates CYP450 in animal models persists in serum for over 8Gini Coefficient 2C9 is the route of hours)calculation metabolismdemonstrates high Does not decreasekinase specificity prostacyclin formation indicating CV safety No elevation of liver enzymes No elevation of fecal Calprotectin indicating GI safety Safe to GI system when orally consumed at therapeutic doses
  8. 8. Type 2 Diabetes Market Approximately 90-95% of all diabetes cases in the U.S. are Type 2 >20 million people in the U.S. currently have Type 2 Diabetes Combined U.S. sales of glitazones alone in 2007 were > $6.6 Billion
  9. 9. Unmet Needs in Diabetes Therapeutic needs: Multiple effects not achieved by single agent (e.g. anti-hyperglycemic, anti-obesity, hypertriglyceridemia) Undesired side effects/patient compliance Metformin: GI effects, lactic acidosis Secretagogues: weight gain, hypoglycemia, tid dosing Glitazones: weight gain, edema, liver safety Insulin: injectable, hypoglycemia, weight gain

  16. 16. R200 Competitive Advantages Multiple actions Decrease insulin sensitivity, fasting glucose, and insulin levels Large impact on weight gain (in high fat rodent study) Improves lipid values Excellent safety profile in humans Does not decrease prostacyclin formation in humans, indicating CV safety No elevation of liver enzymes in humans ingesting therapeutic doses No elevation of fecal calprotectin in humans ingesting therapeutic doses indicating GI safety Safe to GI system when orally consumed at therapeutic doses Orally Bioavailable
