Item 4.

Purpose of Transaction

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is amended and supplemented as follows:

The Reporting Person acquired the shares of Common Stock set forth on this Schedule 13D and holds its shares of Common Stock for investment purposes. Christopher Garabedian and Fred Callori serve as members of the Issuer’s board of directors. Mr. Garabedian is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xontogeny. Mr. Callori is Senior Vice President at Xontogeny, LLC.

The Reporting Person expects to continuously review its investment in the Issuer and, depending on various factors including but not limited to, the price of the shares of Common Stock, the terms and conditions of the transaction, prevailing market conditions and such other considerations as the Reporting Person deems relevant, may at any time or from time to time, and subject to any required regulatory approvals, acquire additional shares of Common Stock, preferred stock or other securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Stock from time to time on the open market, in privately-negotiated transactions, directly from the Issuer, or upon the exercise or conversion of securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Stock.

The Reporting Person also may, at any time, subject to compliance with applicable securities laws and regulatory requirements dispose or distribute some or all of its Common Stock or such other securities as it owns or may subsequently acquire depending on various factors, including but not limited to, the price of the shares, the terms and conditions of the transaction and prevailing market conditions, as well as liquidity and diversification objectives.

Consistent with its investment intent, the Reporting Person may from time to time discuss with the Issuer’s management, directors, other shareholders and others, the Issuer’s performance, business, strategic direction, capital structure, product development program, prospects and management, as well as various ways of maximizing stockholder value, which may or may not include extraordinary transactions.

A stockholder who purports to be acting on behalf of potential investors in the Issuer has approached Perceptive Advisors LLC (“Perceptive”) with offers to purchase some or all of its shares of Common Stock in a transaction that included other conditions involving the Issuer. Perceptive has indicated that it believes that the offer would include shares of Common Stock held by Xontogeny. Perceptive has also indicated that it has considered these offers in a manner consistent with its fiduciary duties to its own investors, and has rejected them, although discussions are ongoing. Perceptive has indicated that it is and currently plans to remain open to the possibility of selling all of its shares of Common Stock under the right circumstances and pursuant to terms it deems acceptable, and the Reporting Person likewise is and currently plans to remain open to the possibility of selling all of its shares of Common Stock insofar as an offer includes shares held by Xontogeny.


Except as indicated herein, the Reporting Person, as a stockholder of the Issuer, does not have any plans or proposals that relates or would result in any of the transactions or other matters specified in clauses (a) though (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Person may, at any time and from time to time, review or reconsider its or his position and/or change its or his purpose and/or formulate plans or proposals with respect thereto.
