Item8.01. Other Events.

On March 13, 2017, Heat Biologics, Inc. (the Company) issued a
press release announcing that the Company achieved the efficacy
endpoint for its Phase 1b trial evaluating HS-110 in combination
with Bristol-Myers Squibbs anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor,
nivolumab (Opdivo), for the treatment of non-small cell lung
cancer (NSCLC) and that the trial met the expansion criteria to
advance into a Phase 2. In reviewing the Phase 1b data, the Data
Monitoring Committee (the DMC) determined that the Phase 1b
safety endpoint was met and that there do not appear to be
additional toxicities seen in the HS-110/nivolumab combination
compared to existing data on nivolumab alone. Furthermore, 5 out
of 15 patients treated with the HS-110/nivolumab combination had
20% or greater tumor reduction. Patients with increased levels of
tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) at 10 weeks appeared to have
a durable benefit, with six out of eight of these patients (75%)
alive at the one-year follow-up point. The DMC concluded that the
positive safety profile, mechanistic evidence and encouraging
signs of synergistic efficacy warranted expansion to a Phase 2
