On March 11, 2014, UnitedHealth Group Incorporated (UnitedHealth Group)
announced that its UnitedHealthcare business has provided a $1.0 million grant
for the Connecticut Children's Medical Center's Office for Community Child
Health (OCCH) to help improve care delivery and address critical public health
issues for children. UnitedHealthcare expects the grant to help create a

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Analyst Notes

On March 5, 2014, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (Bristol-Myers Squibb)
presented 24-week Phase IIb data that demonstrated similar response rates for
its investigational compound, BMS-663068, when compared to a boosted protease
inhibitor, Reyataz with ritonavir. According to the Company, the study, which
was presented at the 21^st Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic
Infections (CROI), highlights the unique mechanism of action of the
investigational prodrug BMS-663068, which when converted into BMS-626529, a
novel attachment inhibitor, prevents initial viral attachment to the host CD4+
T cell and entry into the host immune cell. "These study results are
encouraging and support further development of BMS-663068 as we continue to
look for ways to treat people living with HIV, especially those who have
exhausted available therapies and are difficult to treat," said Douglas
Manion, M.D., Senior Vice President of Development, Virology at Bristol-Myers
Squibb. The full analyst notes on Bristol-Myers Squibb Company are available

AbbVie Inc. Analyst Notes

On March 3, 2014, AbbVie Inc. (AbbVie) presented the first detailed results of
its pivotal phase III study, PEARL-III, at the 21^st Conference on
Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). The Company informed that
PEARL-III evaluated the efficacy and safety of 12 weeks of treatment with
AbbVie's investigational therapy with or without ribavirin (RBV) in
non-cirrhotic, adult patients with chronic genotype 1b (GT1b) hepatitis C
virus (HCV) infection who were new to treatment. The results revealed that
PEARL-III was able to meet its primary and secondary endpoints. "We are
excited about the strong PEARL-III results which demonstrate the AbbVie
regimen achieved high SVR rates with no discontinuations due to adverse events
in patients new to treatment with genotype 1b infection," said Scott Brun,
M.D., Vice President of Pharmaceutical Development at AbbVie. "Additionally,
with these data, we continue to be on track to begin major regulatory
submissions in the second quarter of 2014. AbbVie will continue to disclose
additional detailed phase III study results at future scientific congresses
and in publications." The full analyst notes on AbbVie Inc. are available to
