Item 8.01
Other Events
 
In 2010, Cleveland BioLabs, Inc. (the “Company”) submitted a proposal (the “2010 Proposal”) for the further development of Protectan CBLB502 to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (“BARDA”) of the Department of Health and Human Services.  The Company and BARDA recently concluded advanced stages of contract negotiations for funding of the activities proposed in the 2010 Proposal.  BARDA has indicated that further contract-related negotiations will require clarification of the development path for CBLB502 with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”), which is in the process of actively reviewing the Company’s IND for CBLB502 as part of its recent transfer to a new FDA Division.  This review, which is an anticipated step in the drug development process, is currently underway.  BARDA has indicated that the Company may resubmit an updated proposal upon confirmation from the FDA there are no objections to the Company proceeding with its development plan as a result of this review.  The Company is actively working toward obtaining this confirmation in the shortest time period possible.  As with any federal contract proposal, there is no assurance that the Company’s new proposal will result in an award from BARDA.

The Company will update its stockholders on the present state of the Company and its progress with development programs at its annual stockholders meeting on June 7, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. ET, and investor day on June 8, 2011 at 9:45 a.m. ET.
