Mymetics Corporation (OTCBB:MYMX), a pioneer in the development of
vaccines that use the human mucosal system, the body's first line of
defense, to prevent transmission of infectious diseases, announced today
the appointment of Ronald Kempers, currently CFO and COO, as President
and CEO of Mymetics Corporation effective November 19, 2012. He replaces
Dr. Christopher S. Henney and Grant Pickering who had been respectively
appointed on March 22, 2012 as director and Chairman of the Board of
Directors and as a director and President and Chief Executive Officer to
pursue new strategic directions, including the potential change of
Mymetics' location from Switzerland to the United States.

    Mymetics will maintain its principal place of business in Switzerland as
it explores a number of strategic opportunities for its HIV, RSV and
other vaccine candidates under development. Mymetics will provide an
update in due time. 

    About Mymetics 

    Mymetics Corporation is a Swiss-based biotechnology company registered in
the US (OTCBB:MYMX) developing next-generation preventative vaccines for
infectious diseases. Mymetics' core technology and expertise are in the
use of virosomes, lipid-based carriers containing functional fusion viral
proteins with the ability to be combined with rationally designed
antigens. The company's vaccines are designed to induce protection
against early transmission and infection, focusing on the mucosal immune
response as a first-line defense, which for some pathogens may be
essential for the development of an effective prophylactic vaccine.
Mymetics currently has five vaccines in its pipeline: Respiratory
Syncytial Virus, Influenza, HIV-1/AIDS, Malaria and Herpes Simplex Virus.
The company's influenza, HIV-1 and malaria vaccines have completed Phase
I clinical trials in healthy human volunteers, while the RSV and HSV
vaccine candidates are in preclinical development. For further
