ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS
On December 23, 2013, the Company issued a press release announcing that top-line data from Chien-804, the placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized Phase 2 trial evaluating the efficacy of collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) in canines with benign subcutaneous lipomas. The trial did not meet its primary endpoint of a statistically significant post-treatment difference in the mean percent change in lipoma volume by CT scan; however, in the responder analysis there was a statistically significant reduction in lipoma surface area among dogs treated with CCH as determined by caliper.
A press release regarding the announcement is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
