Forward Looking Statements  
This press release contains, in addition to historical information,
forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private
Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements relate to
future events or future financial performance, and use words such as
"may," "estimate," "could," "expect" and others. They are based on
our current expectations and are subject to factors and uncertainties
which could cause actual results to differ materially from those
described in the statements. Factors that could cause our actual
performance to differ materially from those discussed in the
forward-looking statements include, among others, that our plans,
expectations and goals regarding the clinical trials are subject to
factors beyond our control and provide no assurance of FDA approval
of our drug development plans. Our clinical trials may not produce
positive results in a timely fashion, if at all, and any necessary
changes during the course of the trial could prove time consuming and
costly. We may have difficulty in enrolling candidates for testing,
which would affect our estimates regarding timing, and we may not be
able to achieve the desired results. Any significant delays or
unanticipated costs in the trials could delay obtaining meaningful
results from Phase II and/or preparing for Phase III with the current
cash on hand.  
Upon receipt of FDA approval, we may face competition with other
drugs and treatments that are currently approved or those that are
currently in development, which could have an adverse effect on our
ability to achieve revenues from this proposed indication. Plans
regarding development, approval and marketing of any of our drugs,
including PAZ320, are subject to change at any time based on the
changing needs of our company as determined by management and
regulatory agencies. To date, we have incurred operating losses since
our inception, and our ability to successfully develop and market
drugs may be affected by our ability to manage costs and finance our
continuing operations. For a discussion of additional factors
affecting our business, see our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
year ended December 31, 2012, and our subsequent filings with the
SEC. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking
statements. Although subsequent events may cause our views to change,
we disclaim any obligation to update forward-looking statements.
