On March 29, 2013, Dyax Corp.

No consulting fee will be due from the Company to Ms. Magovcevic-Liebisch under the consulting agreement. In lieu of any such fee, the Company will (i) allow certain stock options held by Dr. Magovcevic-Liebisch to continue to vest during the term of the consulting agreement and (ii) extend the period during which Dr. Magovcevic-Liebisch may exercise these stock options and any other vested portions of Company stock options she holds. The consulting agreement also includes standard provisions relating to non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality. The consulting agreement is filed with this report as Exhibit 10.1 and the foregoing description of this agreement is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the consulting agreement, which is incorporated herein by this reference.

In addition, Burt Adelman, M.D., Dyax's Chief Medical Officer, has been promoted to Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President, Research and Development, effective April 1, 2013 (the "Effective Date").

The option will vest monthly over four years in 48 substantially equal monthly installments at the end of each monthly anniversary of the Effective Date. In addition, subject to his continued employment with the Company through March 31, 2016 and his requisite notice and cooperation with the Company, if Dr. Adelman leaves the Company after March 31, 2016 he will be entitled to (i) acceleration of vesting for the portion of his unvested equity awards, if any, then outstanding (including stock options and restricted stock unit awards) that are scheduled to vest within the two-year period following his departure date and
