AIM Rule 26
The following information is disclosed in accordance with Rule 26 of the AIM regulations on the London Stock Exchange.
Please note the company changed name from Retroscreen Virology to hVIVO in April 2015, so many of the historical documents here will refer to Retroscreen Virology.
Description of the business
hVIVO is a rapidly growing UK life sciences company pioneering a technology platform which uses human models of disease to study new drugs and investigate disease in a safe, controlled environment.
hVIVO has established itself as the world leader in this field through the provision of clinical services to third party study sponsors. To date, the Company has conducted over 48 clinical studies, involving more than 2,300 volunteers for a range of leading industry, governmental and academic clients. However, the hVIVO platform has a much wider application in helping to understand illness better because the Company believes that the best way to understand human disease is by studying it in humans, not laboratory models.

The Company considers the UK Corporate Governance Code (the “Code”) as a basis for guiding its governance structures. However, it is recognised that some aspects of the Code are not relevant for AIM companies such as hVIVO. The Board seeks to comply with the principles of the Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Sized Quoted Companies (the “QCA Code”), which is more applicable for small and medium-sized companies.
