Item 8.01    Other Events.
 
The registrant, Mymetics Corporation (“Mymetics”), entered into a Research and Option to License Agreement (the “Research Agreement”) dated April 16, 2018, with Anergis SA (“Anergis”). Under the terms of the Research Agreement, a pre-clinical study program will evaluate the immunogenicity profile of the Anergis’ peptides designed to treat birch allergy when presented on Mymetics’ proprietary virosomes, with or without undisclosed TLR ligands or other adjuvants, and will compare the results to Anergis’ AllerT product combination. The results of the program are expected in the first quarter of 2019.
 
In the event that the results of the pre-clinical study program are successful, Anergis has the option to obtain an exclusive worldwide license of Mymetics’ virosome technology for the development of allergy vaccines. Should Anergis and Mymetics execute a License and Collaboration Agreement (LCA), Anergis would make an upfront payment to Mymetics in an amount that increases as the date of executing the LCA is delayed, milestone payments based on certain regulatory clearances and royalties for net sales.
 
Mymetics has issued a press release summarizing the terms of the Research Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.
