Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 20, 2006, Neose Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") entered into an agreement (the "Amendment") amending its Research, Co-Development and Commercialization Agreement with BioGeneriX AG ("BioGeneriX") dated as of April 20, 2004, for the development of a long-acting, GlycoPEGylated™ granulocyte colony stimulating factor (the "GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement"), and its Research, License and Option Agreement with BioGeneriX dated as of April 27, 2005, for the development of an undisclosed GlycoPEGylated protein (the "Undisclosed Protein Agreement"). The Amendment will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006, with portions omitted and filed separately with the Secretary of the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to a request for confidential treatment. The Amendment imposes additional diligence requirements on BioGeneriX under the GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement, without any cure period, in exchange for the extension to December 31, 2006 of two dates on which BioGeneriX must take action. These diligence requirements include the obligation to dose the first patient in a Phase I clinical trial by November 16, 2006.

Specifically, the Amendment provides for:

• The extension from November 6, 2006 to December 31, 2006 of the date under the GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement by which BioGeneriX must decide whether or not to proceed with development of the product.

• The extension from October 23, 2006 to December 31, 2006 of the date on which BioGeneriX’s option under the Undisclosed Protein Agreement will expire.

• BioGeneriX to assume responsibility for the payment of all reagent costs under the GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement after January 1, 2007. These costs were previously Neose’s responsibility through the end of clinical development.

• Additional BioGeneriX Phase I and II diligence requirements under the GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement, including the requirement that the first patient in a Phase I clinical trial be dosed on the earlier of (i) the 30th day following regulatory approval or (ii) December 31, 2006. Regulatory approval was received on October 17, so the date by which the first patient must be dosed is November 16, 2006.

• The right of Neose to immediately terminate the GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement and, if the option has not yet been exercised, the Undisclosed Protein Agreement upon the failure of BioGeneriX to meet any of the new Phase I or II diligence requirements. If the GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement is terminated, worldwide rights to the GlycoPEG-GCSF program, subject to the negotiation of economic terms, will revert to Neose. If the Undisclosed Protein Agreement is terminated, all rights to the undisclosed protein revert to Neose. If the failure to meet any diligence requirements resulted from a delay in the supply by Neose of reagents, the diligence timing would be extended by the length of the delay.

The Company does not have any material relationship with BioGeneriX or its affiliates other than in respect of the GlycoPEG-GCSF Agreement and the Undisclosed Protein Agreement, as amended by the Amendment.
