None of the Reporting Persons have acquired or disposed of any additional Shares of the Issuer since February 24, 2010.
 
Item 4. 
Purpose of Transaction.
 
This statement relates to the acquisition of Shares by the Reporting Persons.  The Shares acquired by the Reporting Persons were acquired for the purpose of making an investment in the Issuer and not with the intention of acquiring control of the Issuer’s business on behalf of the Reporting Persons’ respective advisory clients.

The Reporting Persons from time to time intend to review their investment in the Issuer on the basis of various factors, including the Issuer’s business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects, general economic and industry conditions, the securities markets in general and those for the Issuer’s Shares in particular, as well as other developments and other investment opportunities.  Based upon such review, the Reporting Persons will take such actions in the future as the Reporting Persons may deem appropriate in light of the circumstances existing from time to time.  If the Reporting Persons believe that further investment in the Issuer is attractive, whether because of the market price of the Issuer’s Shares or otherwise, they may acquire shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Issuer either in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. Similarly, depending on market and other factors, the Reporting Persons may determine to dispose of some or all of the Shares currently owned by the Reporting Persons or otherwise acquired by the Reporting Persons either in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions.
 
 
Except as set forth above, the Reporting Persons have not formulated any plans or proposals which relate to or would result in: (a) the acquisition by any person of additional securities of the Issuer or the disposition of securities of the Issuer, (b) an extraordinary corporate transaction involving the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries, (c) a sale or transfer of a material amount of the assets of the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries, (d) any change in the present Board of Directors
 

 
or management of the Issuer, (e) any material change in the Issuer’s capitalization or dividend policy, (f) any other material change in the Issuer’s business or corporate structure, (g) any change in the Issuer’s charter or bylaws or other or instrument corresponding thereto or other action which may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person, (h) causing a class of the Issuer’s securities to be deregistered or delisted, (i) a class of equity securities of the Issuer becoming eligible for termination of registration or (j) any action similar to any of those enumerated above.

Item 5. 
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
 
(a) – (b)  As of this date of this filing, OrbiMed Advisors LLC, OrbiMed Capital GP III LLC and Samuel D. Isaly may be deemed directly or indirectly, including by reason of their mutual affiliation, to be the beneficial owners of the Shares described in Item 3.  Based upon information contained in the most recent available filing by the Issuer with the SEC, such Shares constitute approximately 14.38% of the issued and outstanding Shares.  As described above in Item 2, Isaly owns, pursuant to the terms of the limited liability company agreement of each of OrbiMed Advisors LLC and OrbiMed Capital GP III LLC, a controlling interest in the outstanding limited liability company interests of such entity.  As a result, Isaly, OrbiMed Advisors LLC and OrbiMed Capital GP III LLC share power to direct the vote and to direct the disposition of the Common Stock described in Item 3.
 
(c) Except as disclosed in Item 3, the Reporting Persons have not effected any transactions in the Shares during the past sixty (60) days.
 
(d) Not applicable.
 
(e) Not applicable.

 
Item 6. 
Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.
 
In addition to the relationships between the Reporting Persons described in Item 5, OrbiMed Capital GP III LLC is the general partner of Caduceus, pursuant to the terms of its limited partnership agreement. OrbiMed Advisors LLC acts as general partner of Associates. Pursuant to these agreements and relationships, OrbiMed Advisors LLC and OrbiMed Capital GP III LLC have discretionary investment management authority with respect to the assets of these investment accounts. Such authority includes the power to vote and otherwise dispose of securities purchased by Caduceus and Associates. The number of outstanding Shares of the Issuer attributable to Caduceus is 10,808,370 Shares and Warrants to purchase 3,466,981 Shares and to Associates 102,502 Shares and Warrants to purchase 33,019 Shares.
