These tests were carried out under informal conditions. The ingredients in our tetracycline products include ONLY ingredients that can be obtained over the counter (OTC) without a perscription. In some cases (reported in this document), discoveries were made. This often happens when someone is given a home remedy without formal directions for use, except that it should be used only on the skin. Occasionally, the benefit of the remedy is found to be useful for conditions not previously anticipated. One example of a discovery of this type is the remarkably good results obtained by Brian when he used Dermoneen Kit on the psoriasis condition on his arm. The Dermoneen Kit formulations used in these tests were made available to the users at no cost. No product was offered for sale. No product was sold during these evaluations. The hukman test subjects were not paid for their participation in these field tests. We appreciate feedback. Contact via . Page 2

5 A discovery -- Dermoneen Kit formulations shown to be helpful for psoriasis condition Every so often in the life of a company, an unexpected discovery takes place. It is unbidden, somewhat accidental, and promises to be good for mankind. The following story is how this discovery happened and what we have learned at Phillips Company about the nature of psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic, autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis is not contagious. It commonly causes red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. The scaly patches caused by psoriasis, called psoriatic plaques, are areas of inflammation and excessive skin production. Skin rapidly accumulates at these sites and is a silverywhite appearance. Plaques frequently occur on the skin of the elbows and knees, but can affect any area including the scalp, palms of hands and soles of feet, and genitals. In contrast to eczema, psoriasis is more likely to be found on the extensor aspect of the joint. The disorder is a chronic recurring condition. Brian says that he has had this condition for perhaps 10 to 12 years. The cause of psoriasis is not exact. There are many treatments available, but because of its chronic recurrent nature psoriasis is a challenge to treat. ( Ref: A surprising discovery Brian works in a retail outlet for medicines and remedies. He developed a skin condition, believed to be psoriasis, on his arm just below the right elbow. Brian s friend, James, was in the store, chatting briefly with Brian when James became aware of the scratching and obvious minor discomfort that Brian was experiencing because of the rough patch of skin above his right elbow. James, who carries Dermoneen Kit in his pocket as a regular practice, offered a drop of the Dermoneen Kit to Brian. Dermoneen Kit was applied there, in the store, and Brian rubbed it in. The next day, the evidence of the psoriasis was totally gone according to Brian. That was the first discovery that Dermoneen Kit might be unusually beneficial in the treatment of psoriasis. The amazing result was confirmed a few days later, when Brian developed a similar psoriasis condition on the other arm (the left arm) just below the elbow. A camera was used to document the use of Dermoneen Kit during this second use of Dermoneen Kit on psoriasis. See the next page for more information. Page 5

6 Products contained in the Dermoneen Kit seemed to clear up Brian s psoriasis in 2 days Brian s past flareups of psoriasis had been treated with hydrocortizone creams, Neosporin and varous other lotions, but with only limited success and only partial results. During this second occurance of Brian s psoriasis, he used Dermoneen, just as had done during the first occurance reported on the previous page. Brian s left arm is shown in the photo below (6/8/2010) before using Dermoneen Kit on that spot. Day 0: Brian began using Dermoneen Kit on this skin conditon on 6/8/2010. The amazing results reported here are for only two psoriasis outbreaks, on only one person. This limited amount of data does not prove we have an effective treatment for all forms of psoriasis. We are not saying we have a cure. But, based on this data, we believe additional evaluation is warrented. Page 6

7 Symptoms of Psoriasis: Psoriasis is usually evidenced by swollen red patches of skin that are usually covered by silvery flaky scales. These outbreaks can be very minimal on the body or extremely severe. If they are severe, they can be painful and debilitating. Skin may be dry, cracked and prone to bleeding. Itching and burning are common side effects. Causes of Psoriasis: From the internet; about Brian s condition The cause or causes of psoriasis have never been understood. There are two main theories geared at explaining the disease. One implies that it is simply the fault of the skin for over-producing cells. The second theory puts the responsibility on the immune system. Ref: &usg= muoja6xtvq6cv7dbxzvly3vpdsm=&h=404&w=297&sz=15&hl=en&start=53&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=vdguvq9vqozdnm:&tbnh=124&tbnw=91&prev=/ images%3fq%3dpsoriasis%2bcauses%26start%3d40%26um%3d1%26hl%3den%26sa%3dn%26rls%3dcom.microsoft:en-us:ie- SearchBox%26rlz%3D1I7IRFC_en%26ndsp%3D20%26tbs%3Disch:1 Infection Triggers Psoriasis Internet photo (Not Brian s arm) Infections caused by bacteria or viruses can cause a psoriasis flare. The bacteria streptococcus that causes infections such as tonsillitis, sinusitis, and strep throat are a well known trigger of a type of psoriasis called Guttate psoriasis. Ref: Brian s skin condition (photo at right) looks very much like the skin condition (shown in the photo above). Brian s condition is believed to be a form of psoriasis. Infections caused by bacteria can cause a psoriasis flareup. It is for this reason that we believe our Dermoneen Kit (products contained in the Dermoneen Kit ) played a role in the improvement of Brian s skin condition. Day 0: Brian s arm Page 7

8 Remarkaable improvement! Day 1: ( 6/9/2010) 24 hours after Brian began using Dermoneen Kit on the skin conditon. Brian was surprised and pleased with the dramatic improvement in his skin condition after using Dermoneen Kit for only one day. After seeing the benefits of using Dermoneen Kit on his arm, and the remarkable change in only 1 day, Brian said, I ve had this skin problem for 10 to 12 years. In the past, those flareups of psoriasis were treated with hydrocortizone creams, Neosporin and varous other lotions, but with only limited and only partial results. None of the previous treatments produced results this rapidly. When asked whether he believed the improvement was due to other factors (other than Dermoneen), he said, This stuff works better than anything I ve ever used. This is the second time it has worked this well for me. I think the rapid improvement has to be due to the use of Dermoneen. Page 8

9 Success after only two days! The remarkably-successful use of Dermoneen Kit can be seen by comparing the BEFORE photograph with the AFTER photograph. The AFTER photo shows a dramatic reduction in the appearance of swollen red patches of skin and a total reduction of the silvery flaky scales. BEFORE AFTER Success after only two days! Day 2: ( 6/10/2010) Photo taken 48 hours after Brian began using Dermoneen Kit on the skin conditon. Page 9

10 Three weeks later -- no recurrent outbreaks Brian s Psoriasis case has been unusually persistent and recurrant; but not after the use of Dermoneen. He said, I ve had this skin problem for 10 to 12 years. Amazingly, after the use of Dermoneen, his psoriasis outbreaks stopped being constant and recurrant. No evidence of psoriasis three weeks later Brian s left elbow; 3 weeks later Right elbow; 3 weeks later Dermoneen Kit used only once What makes this case remarkable is that the successful results reported for Brian resulted from his using Dermoneen Kit on his skin only one time, on Day 0, in the afternoon. The following morning, he said, I just cleaned off the silver-colored scales. The silver scaly skin came off and revealed healthy skin underneath. I had no reason to use Dermoneen Kit after that, so actually the success came from using Dermoneen Kit just one time.

12 Left Elbow Day 8 of daily treatment using products contained in the Dermoneen Kit Right Elbow Not treated The above photographs are the results of a COMPARISON TEST, in which two elbows from the same person, with approximately the same psoriasis condition (before treatment, Day 0) were compared. The left elbow responded very well to treatment. The right elbow (not treated), as expected remained essentially the same. Below is the report by the test subject, BC, in his own words: APPLICATION OF products contained in the Dermoneen Kit to psoriasis patches on elbow Case study is a 67 year old male who has had psoriasis for many, many years, as did his father. Dry, flaky white patches of psoriasis appear on both elbows, running vertically for 2-3 inches as shown, and on both knees in quarter to half dollar size patches. No bleeding, excessive redness, itching or pain occurs, just the dry white patches that never seem to go away. (In the first picture of the left arm, it was slightly out of focus, but it is Page 12

13 virtually the same as on the right arm, which is in focus and you can see the patches running up both arms.) Treatment with products contained in the Dermoneen Kit was commenced twice daily right after the first pictures were taken on 10/12/2010. As can be seen, within one day, the whiteness of the patches was fading, although the subsurface patchlets were still there. After 4 days of treatment, these were significantly reduced and by the 8th day, the patchlets were almost dissipated, although the underlying redness and roughness of the skin had not disappeared yet. In the pictures above of both the left arm (treated for 8 days) and the right arm (untreated) you can see the dramatic difference in the skin and almost total reduction of the dry psoriasis patches. It is felt with continued application of products contained in the Dermoneen Kit that possibly the skin color and texture can be returned to its normal state and without the recurrance of the white paint smears as most people (especially kids) say/ think when they see my elbows and knees!

14 Dermoneen Kit comparison with other psoriasis treatments. Gentlemen -- I was on a conference call on 12/7/2010, and the topic of interest was products contained in the Dermoneen Kit and the field test data regarding Brian and his use of Dermoneen to treat his psoriasis condition. One of the people on the phone call did a bit of "homework" after the call and provided this non-confidential information. ============================================================== Hey guys, First of all I want to thank all of you that participated in the call today. I spoke to my friend who is a pharmaceutical expert regarding a psoriasis treatment called Amevive. Below are the results of our conversation: 1. Amevive IM biologic injection a. No signs of improvement until week 8 b. Maximum efficacy around week c. 33% efficacy rate only (meaning only helped 33% of the people treated) d. $1200/injection, $25K for 2 courses. e. Estimated $50K per year for life. 2. All the following competitors are injectables. a. Envrel b. Sterllara c. Raptiva (pulled off market TML, swelling of the brain: harmful) i. People have died from this. d. Humira e. All competitor products are similar in the following respects: i. No results until week 2 or later ii. Maximum efficacy around weeks 6-9 weeks and have to be on it for life. iii. Efficacy is 45-70% (shown in clinical trials) iv. Estimated $50K per year for life Page 14
