"We are very pleased that we could attract Evert to become the new CEO of Pevion. With his experience and hands-on approach, Evert is a perfect fit to lead the Company in this exciting phase."

About Virosomes Virosomes are the only regulatory and market-approved vaccine technology to fulfill carrier and adjuvant functions in one. Essentially, virosomes represent reconstituted empty influenza virus envelopes, devoid of the genetic material of the source virus. As such, virosomes do not replicate and are therefore an ideal combination of carrier plus adjuvant for almost any given antigen, including peptide or protein derived antigens. Two virosome-based vaccines (Epaxal(R) and Inflexal(R) V, marketed by Crucell) are licensed in over 40 countries, and more than 50 million doses of these vaccines have been commercially distributed, thereby providing a solid safety and efficacy track record.
