Renhuang Announces Successful Preliminary Review of Its Patent Application for Schisandra Total Lignin Extraction Method

May 26, 2010

HARBIN, China, May 26 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Renhuang
Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Pink Sheets: RHGP) (“Renhuang” or the “Company”), a
developer, manufacturer and distributor of botanical products,
bio-pharmaceuticals and traditional Chinese medicines (“TCM”), today announced
that the State Intellectual Property Office of the People’s Republic of China
(“SIPO”) successfully completed a preliminary review of the Company’s patent
application for its advanced proprietary Schisandra Lignin Extraction Method.

Research in China suggests that Schisandra, a wild plant with high
medicinal and health benefits, has a protective effect on the liver and is
effective as a sedative for treating insomnia and central nervous system
depression. Lignin compounds have been shown as a good source of powerful
anti-oxidants with promising benefits in fighting major conditions, including
HIV, cancer and high blood pressure. Renhuang’s proprietary Schisandra lignin
extraction method enables the Company to obtain higher purity of lignin from
the plant, which may substantially enhance the efficacy of medicines produced
from these compounds. The Company’s patent application has now entered the
SIPO comprehensive examination phase, which is typically a two year process.
If approved by the SIPO, the patent will provide Renhuang market exclusivity
for its Schisandra-based products for a period of 16 to 18 years.

“We are pleased that our advanced proprietary Schisandra Lignin Extraction
Method patent application has passed an important stage in the patent approval
process,” said Mr. Shaoming Li, Chairman and CEO of Renhuang Pharmaceuticals,
Inc. “We continue to strive towards securing patents on our unique proprietary
extraction methods, which is an important part of our long-term growth
strategy. The successful development of our high-quality, proprietary
extraction method provides a strong foundation for advancing the development
of Schisandra based products and is expected to strengthen our competitive
edge during the commercialization of the product in the future.”
