A lifetime of healing patients, understanding how the body heals itself and endless hours of research and development into the molecular-level secrets of the human body led to the establishment of Thione International, Inc. The following is background information on how a unique Georgia biotechnology company has brought to life a visionary physician's ideas to help each of us heal ourselves.

History of Thione International and Background on Theodore Hersh, M.D.

Thione International, Inc. was founded in 1995 and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Theodore Hersh, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Emeritus, Emory University and his wife, Rebecca, launched Thione based on Dr. Hersh's 30 years of clinical practice and research experience as a gastroenterologist-hepatologist. One of his many strengths is a vast knowledge in the field of nutrition and a keen interest in preventative medicine.

Dr. Hersh graduated from Harvard with a Bachelor of Arts Degree, Cum Laude, in Biology. He attended medical school at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, in New York City and had his postgraduate training in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and the Boston City Hospital, Harvard Division, in Boston, Massachusetts.

During Thione's first four years, the founders focused on designing formulations, developing applications, conducting patent and clinical research and submitting patent applications. Those efforts led to the formation of a technology platform that incorporates sixteen products supported by considerable scientific research and several clinical studies performed by independent research laboratories as well as unaffiliated researchers that support the products. Following the successful outcome of the research and related studies, Thione began to commercialize its unique, patented Thione Complex™ that is the basis for a growing family of products. The company's focus was to develop a base of business built on the commercial efficacy of its technology.

Thione's efforts are concentrated on providing the Thione Complex™ on a global basis through partnering with companies whose strengths complement its molecular-level delivery system.
