As described in Item 5.02 below, on January 28, 2014 we sold our current director and now Executive Vice Chairman, Strategic Development, Michael S.

The information regarding the Securities Purchase Agreement and Warrant in Item 5.02 below is hereby incorporated into this Item 3.02 by reference.



Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.

Effective January 28, 2014, Dr. Kevin Hogan, our Chief Medical Officer, was separated from service from our Company. That same day, our Board named current director, Mr. Weiss, Executive Vice Chairman, Strategic Development. Mr. Weiss has served as a director of our Company since December 19, 2013 and from that time until January 27, 2014 served as the Co-Vice Chairman of our Board.

We do not intend to enter into any employment contract with Mr. Weiss addressing his officer position with our Company. However, in connection with his appointment as Executive Vice Chairman, Strategic Development, Mr. Weiss will earn an annual salary of $28,275. On January 28, 2014, we also issued to Mr. Weiss 1,334,226 shares of restricted common stock of our Company for services to be rendered to our Company. The issuance, which was made pursuant to a Restricted Stock Issuance Agreement and under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), provides that one third of the shares will vest annually over the next three years subject to continued employment with, or service on our Board.

On January 28, 2014, we also executed a Securities Purchase Agreement with Mr. Weiss. Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, Mr. Weiss purchased 1,979,346 Units, representing a total of 645,120 shares of our common stock and a warrant to purchase 1,979,346 shares of our common stock (the "Warrant"). The purchase price of each Unit is $2.70, the closing price of our common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market as of January 27, 2014. The Warrant has a term of 10 years and an exercise price of $2.70. Both the sale of the Units and issuance of the Warrant to Mr. Weiss were made pursuant to the exemption from registration set forth in Section 4(2) of the Securities Act, based upon the limited nature of the issuance. The foregoing description of the Restricted Stock Issuance Agreement, Securities Purchase Agreement and Warrant is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Restricted Stock Issuance Agreement, Securities Purchase Agreement and Warrant, copies of which will be filed as exhibits to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.
