VG Life Sciences Inc. Announces Stock Ticker Symbol Change To “VGLS”

VG Life Sciences Inc. (OTC Pink: VRAL)(OTC Pink: VGLS) today announced that it will change its stock ticker symbol to “VGLS” from “VRAL” to reflect the company’s recent name change to VG Life Sciences Inc. from Viral Genetics, Inc. The new “VGLS” ticker symbol will be effective at the start of trading January 10, 2013.

The stock ticker symbol change follows the company’s recent name change and emphasizes the company’s evolution from a pure science / research and development entity into a company that is now focused on broader high-growth life sciences operations, including overseeing the company’s patented compounds in preIND ovarian cancer clinical trials at Baylor Scott & White Health, and additional opportunities with a broader reach into bio-fuels, agricultural applications and other high growth industries.

About VG Life Sciences Inc.

A majority-owned subsidiary, VG Energy ( www.vgenergy.net), is dedicated to exploring biofuel and agricultural applications for the MDT platform.
