All previously announced discussions regarding regional and global partnerships are actively ongoing and should the Board or Management become aware of any new insider information the normal blackout procedures will be reinstated.

RVX-208, a first in class novel small molecule therapeutic that facilitates endogenous Apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA-I) production, is positioned to be one of the most promising emerging drugs in the treatment of atherosclerosis and vascular disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, stroke, and Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). ApoA-I, the critical cardioprotective protein of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) represent the bodies natural defense system against atherosclerosis by mediating reverse cholesterol transport (RCT), the transport of peripheral cholesterol including that of the vessel wall to the liver for processing. To the Company's knowledge RVX-208 is the only novel small molecule that is specifically designed to increase ApoA-I production and thereby raise Prebeta-HDL levels thus enhancing HDL functionality to augment reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) from vascular beds.
