("Human Genome" or the "Company") (Nasdaq- HGSI) relating to the proposed acquisition by GlaxoSmithKline plc. ("GSK"). Under the terms of the transaction, Human Genome shareholders will receive only $14.25 in cash for each of Human Genome stock they own.

In addition, an analyst has set a price target on Human Genome stock at $23.00 per share and sales of Human Genome's new lupus drug BENLYSTA reached $31.2 million for the first quarter of 2012. If you own shares of Human Genome stock and wish to discuss the legal ramifications of the proposed transaction, or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.  You may contact Jason L.
