Edwards Lifesciences Corporation Research Report

On June 17, 2013, Edwards Lifesciences Corporation (Edwards Lifesciences)
announced unprecedented long-term durability results for bovine pericardial
heart valves. The results are based on a study of the Carpentier-Edwards
PERIMOUNT aortic valve in a subset of patients aged 60 years or younger at the
time of operation. The study tracked patients for an almost 25-year period and
determined that expected valve durability for the patients was greater than 17
years. "Pericardial valve use has increased over time. These long-term data on
the PERIMOUNT valve strengthen the evidence for surgeons to utilize Edwards'
pericardial tissue valves, including in selected patients of age 60 and
under," said Prof. Michel Aupart, M.D., Head of the Department of
Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, University Hospital of Tours, France, and
a consultant to Edwards Lifesciences. The Full Research Report on Edwards

clinicians at The Ohio State University are now using Varian software to plan
and manage radiotherapy treatments delivered on a Siemens medical linear
accelerator. The Companies developed and deployed an interface that connects
Varian's ARIA oncology information system with Siemens' ONCOR and PRIMUS
accelerators and imaging systems. Siemens received 510(k) clearance in March
2013 from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for connectivity between
Varian's ARIA software and Siemens' ONCOR and PRIMUS linear accelerators.

OPKO Health,Inc. Research Report

On May 23, 2013, OPKO Health, Inc. (OPKO) reported that the Company has
surpassed 50% enrollment in the first Phase 3 trial of Rayaldy to treat
patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT), stage 3 or 4 chronic
kidney disease (CKD), and vitamin D insufficiency. The first trial is part of
two identical randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-side
studies, which are designed to establish the safety and efficacy of Rayaldy as
a new treatment for SHPT in the targeted population. "Rayaldy is being
developed as a much needed and safer alternative to currently used activated
vitamin D hormones," said Dr. David Bushinsky, Chief of Nephrology at the
University of Rochester. Joel Z. Melnick, M.D., Vice President of Clinical
Research and Development at OPKO's Renal Division, added, "Most CKD patients
have insufficient stores of vitamin D due to the abnormal upregulation of
CYP24, an enzyme which specifically destroys vitamin D and its metabolites.
Many recent studies in CKD patients have demonstrated that over-the-counter
and presently available prescription vitamin D supplements cannot reliably
raise blood vitamin D prohormone levels or effectively treat SHPT. In
contrast, our phase 2b trial has demonstrated that Rayaldy effectively and
safely treats both SHPT and the underlying vitamin D insufficiency." The Full

Globus Medical,Inc. Research Report

On June 17, 2013, Globus Medical, Inc. (Globus) announced jury verdict in a
patent infringement case in a US District Court brought by DePuy Synthes
Products, LLC (Synthes). Globus stated that a formal judgment has not yet been
entered in the case and there are a number of motions and hearings to be
resolved; however, the jury found that prior versions of three products
previously sold by Globus did infringe on Synthes' patents and awarded
monetary damages of $16 million. Globus does not expect this verdict to impact
its business or future revenues, as the said three products are no longer part
of the Company's product portfolio. Further, the Company does not expect the
verdict to impair Globus' ability to sell any of its current products and will
not require it to make any royalty payments to Synthes based on current or
future sales. However, the Company plans to overturn the verdict in post-trial
motions as it believes that the facts and the law do not support the jury's
findings of infringement and patent validity. The Full Research Report on
Globus Medical, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and
price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
