Regulation FD Disclosure, Other Events, Financial Statements and


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On June 16, 2014, in the conference call announced in the press release referenced in Item 8.01 below, Dr. Michael Goldberg, Interim CEO of Navidea Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company")stated that, as a result of the previously announced reorganization plan to reduce the Company's cash burn, the Company's previous 2014 research and development expense guidance of between $25 to $30 million is being reduced to less than $20 million for the calendar year.



Item 8.01. Other Events.

On June 13, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of its Supplemental New Drug Application
(sNDA) for the expanded use of LymphoseekŪ (technetium Tc 99m tilmanocept)
Injection indicated for guiding sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in head and neck cancer patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity. Lymphoseek becomes the first and only FDA-approved radiopharmaceutical application for SLN detection and was first approved in March 2013 for lymphatic mapping in breast cancer and melanoma patients.

The expanded approval is supported by data from Navidea's NEO3-06 prospective Phase 3 study that showed with statistical significance the ability of Lymphoseek to correctly identify patients with pathology-positive lymph nodes compared with multiple level lymph node dissection and pathology assessment, which is the current "gold standard." The findings indicate that Lymphoseek accurately identified SLNs in the trial subjects for assessment, and is likely to be predictive of overall node pathology status. Moreover, multiple level nodal dissections of patients in the trial with cancer-positive lymph nodes led to an average removal of 38 lymph nodes per patient, whereas Lymphoseek on average would have led to the removal of approximately 4 lymph nodes, representing a substantial reduction in potential morbidity for patients with head and neck cancer undergoing SLN biopsy.
