A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

|Item 8.01.||Other Events.|
On June 29, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing the results of its Phase 1 trial for AdCOVID and the discontinuation of further development of AdCOVID, based in part on the Phase 1 results. The Company also announced that it has terminated further enrollment of its Phase 1/2 trial of T-COVID because of the Company’s inability to enroll subjects in the final cohort as a result of effective rollout in the United States of authorized COVID-19 vaccines and decreasing incidence of disease, which has significantly reduced the number of patients meeting these criteria. The Company is evaluating other development options for the T-COVID program.
