Clovis Oncology Inc. Research Report

On June 3, 2013, Clovis Oncology Inc. (Clovis Oncology) announced initial
findings from the Phase I portion of its ongoing Phase I/II clinical study of
CO-1686, the novel, oral, targeted covalent (irreversible) inhibitor of mutant
forms of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) for the treatment of
non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients with initial activating EGFR
mutations as well as the dominant resistance mutation T790M. According to the
Company, three of four evaluable T790M patients treated at 900mg BID
(twice-daily) achieved partial responses. Further, it reported that CO-1686
appeared well-tolerated, with no evidence of wild-type EGFR inhibition. Dr.
Lecia V. Sequist of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and
Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Boston, said, "It
has been exciting and quite hopeful to observe that patients are responding to
CO-1686 and that the side effect profile has been so mild. A drug that works
effectively for EGFR acquired resistance would be welcomed by the lung cancer
community." The Full Research Report on Clovis Oncology Inc. - including full

MannKind Corporation Research Report

On May 31, 2013, MannKind Corporation (MannKind) announced that all follow-up
visits have been completed for patients enrolled in Study 171, a Phase 3
clinical study of AFREZZA (insulin human [rDNA origin]) inhalation powder, an
investigational, ultra rapid-acting mealtime insulin therapy, administered
using the Company's next-generation inhaler. Study 171 is an open-label study
in patients with type 1 diabetes. After a run-in period, during which all
patients were optimized on their basal insulin regimen, 518 subjects were
randomized to one of three arms for mealtime insulin: a control arm, in which
patients utilize rapid-acting insulin, or one of two AFREZZA arms, one for the
MedTone inhaler and the other for the next-generation inhaler. After the
mealtime insulin was titrated, there was a 12-week observation period on
stable doses of the mealtime insulin to assess HbA1c levels, which is the
primary outcome parameter. The Company expects to release data from this study
in the summer of 2013. The Full Research Report on MannKind Corporation -

TESARO Inc. Research Report

On June 3, 2013, TESARO, Inc. (TESARO), Breast International Group (BIG), a
non-profit organization for academic breast cancer research groups from around
the world, and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer
(EORTC), an international, independent, multidisciplinary non-profit research
organization, announced a partnership for the Phase 3 clinical development of
niraparib, an orally active, potent poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP)
inhibitor. TESARO, BIG and EORTC will use BIG's and EORTC's scientific and
clinical expertise and network of collaborative groups and their associated
hospitals and oncology research centers to accelerate the completion of the
Phase 3 clinical trial of niraparib in patients with breast cancer. The
primary endpoint of this trial is progression free survival (PFS), with
overall survival (OS) as a secondary endpoint. TESARO expects to open this
study to patients during the second half of 2013. The Full Research Report on
TESARO Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals Research Report

On June 3, 2013, Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Peregrine Pharmaceuticals)
reported that data was presented at the 2013 ASCO (American Society of
Clinical Oncology) Meeting from two clinical trials evaluating the Company's
lead clinical candidate bavituximab, a first-in-class phosphatidylserine
(PS)-targeting monoclonal antibody that represents a new approach to treating
cancer. Interim data from a Phase I trial, evaluating bavituximab plus
paclitaxel therapy in patients with HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer
(MBC), showed that 85% of patients were able to achieve objective tumor
response, with 15% of patients achieving a complete response (CR) in
accordance to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Further,
the Company reported that in the second study, results from a randomized Phase
II trial of bavituximab plus gemcitabine in patients with non-resectable Stage
IV pancreatic cancer demonstrated more than a doubling of the overall response
rate (ORR) and an improvement in overall survival (OS), including a delayed
separation in the Kaplan-Maeier survival curve that is commonly seen in
promising cancer immunotherapies. The Full Research Report on Peregrine

Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. Research Report

On May 31, 2013, Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Vanda Pharmaceuticals) announced
the submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) for tasimelteon, a circadian regulator in development for
the treatment of non-24 hour disorder (Non-24) in the totally blind. Non-24 is
a serious and rare, circadian rhythm disorder that affects the majority of
totally blind individuals who lack light perception and, therefore, cannot
synchronize their master body clock to the 24-hour day. There are currently no
FDA approved products for the treatment of Non-24. The Full Research Report on
