Explanation of Responses:
1. These shares of the Issuer's common stock ("Shares") were purchased in a block order at a price of $3.85.
2. These Shares are held of record by OrbiMed Private Investments V, LP ("OPI V"). OrbiMed Capital GP V LLC ("GP V") is the general partner of OPI V, and OrbiMed Advisors LLC ("Advisors"), a registered adviser under the Investment Advisors Act of 1940, as amended, is the managing member of GP V. By virtue of such relationships, GP V and Advisors may be deemed to have voting and investment power over the securities held by OPI V and as a result may be deemed to beneficially own such securities for purposes of Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Advisors exercised this investment and voting power through a management committee comprised of Carl L. Gordon, Sven H. Borho and Jonathan T. Silverstein, each of whom disclaims beneficial ownership of the Shares held by OPI V.
3. Samuel D. Isaly, who was included as a Reporting Person on previous reports under Section 16 of the Exchange Act filed by GP V and Advisors, is no longer subject to Section 16 with respect to securities of the Issuer.
4. This report on Form 4 is jointly filed by GP V and Advisors. Each of the Reporting Persons disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities reported herein for purposes of Rule 16a-1(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), except to the extent of its pecuniary interest therein, if any. The Reporting Persons have designated a representative, currently Chau Khuong, an employee of Advisors, to serve on the Issuer's board of directors. This report shall not be deemed an admission that any of the Reporting Persons is a beneficial owner for the purpose of Section 16 of the Exchange Act, or for any other purpose.
