Item 1.
Security and Issuer.

The class of equity securities to which this Statement on Schedule 13D (the “Statement”), relates is the common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Adeona Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), whose principal executive offices are located at 3985 Research Park Drive, Suite 200, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48108.
 
Item 2.
Identity and Background.
                               
This Statement is being filed on behalf of Mr. Randal J. Kirk (“Mr. Kirk”) and Intrexon Corporation, a Virginia corporation that is controlled by Mr. Kirk (“Intrexon” and, together with Mr. Kirk, the “Reporting Persons”).
 
(a)-(c)               The address of the principal business office of Mr. Kirk is The Governor Tyler, 1881 Grove Avenue, Radford, Virginia 24141. The address of the principal business office of Intrexon is 20358 Seneca Meadows Parkway, Germantown, Maryland 20876.  The present principal occupation/employment of Mr. Kirk is Senior Managing Director of Third Security, LLC, an investment management firm founded by Mr. Kirk.  Mr. Kirk also serves as the Chairman and CEO of Intrexon.  The principal business of Intrexon is employing modular DNA control systems to enhance capabilities, improve safety and lower cost in human therapeutics, protein production, industrial products and agricultural biotechnology.
 
(d)-(e)               During the last five years, none of the Reporting Persons has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding is or was subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.
 
(f)                      Mr. Kirk is a citizen of the United States.  Intrexon is a corporation organized under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
 
Item 3.
Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.
                               
On November 18, 2011, the Company entered into an Exclusive Channel Collaboration Agreement (the “Channel Agreement”) with Intrexon that governs a “channel collaboration” arrangement in which the Company will use Intrexon’s technology directed towards the production of prostaglandin synthase, through the use of in vivo conditionally regulated embedded controllable bioreactors for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (“PAH”).  In connection therewith, on November 18, 2011, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Intrexon pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue to Intrexon a number of shares of Common Stock equal to 9.995% of the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding following and giving effect to such issuance (the “First Tranche Shares”) at a purchase price equal to the $0.001 par value of such shares, which price was deemed paid in partial consideration for the execution and delivery of the Channel Agreement.  The closing of the purchase of the First Tranche Shares occurred on December 7, 2011 (the “First Tranche Closing”) and in connection therewith the Company issued to Intrexon in a private placement 3,123,558 shares of Common Stock as the First Tranche Shares at a purchase price equal to the $0.001 par value of such shares, which price was deemed paid in partial consideration for the execution and delivery of the Channel Agreement.
 
 
 

 
 
CUSIP No. 00685T108  Page 5 of 10
 
The Company has also agreed to issue additional shares of Common Stock to Intrexon upon dosing of the first patient in an Adeona-conducted Phase II clinical trial in the United States, or similar study as the parties may agree in a country other than the United States, of a product that is created, produced, developed or identified directly or indirectly by the Company during the term of the Channel Agreement and that, subject to certain exceptions, involves the production of prostaglandin synthase, through the use of in vivo conditionally regulated embedded controllable bioreactors for the treatment of PAH. Upon satisfaction of such contingency, the Company has agreed to issue to Intrexon an additional 3,123,558 shares of Common Stock (the “Second Tranche Shares”), which number of shares is equal to 9.995% of the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately following and giving effect to the First Tranche Shares, for a purchase price equal to the $0.001 par value of such shares, which price will be deemed paid in partial consideration for the execution and delivery of the Channel Agreement.
 
Under the Stock Purchase Agreement, Intrexon is entitled, at its election, to participate in future securities offerings of the Company that constitute “Qualified Financings” and that are conducted while the Channel Agreement remains in effect.  For this purpose, a “Qualified Financing” means a sale of Common Stock or equity securities convertible into Common Stock in a public or private offering, raising gross proceeds of at least $5,000,000, where the sale of shares is either registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, at the time of issuance or the Company agrees to register the resale of such shares.  In conjunction with a Qualified Financing, Intrexon has the option to purchase up to 19.99% of the securities issued and sold by the Company therein (such amount to be calculated exclusive of Intrexon’s purchase).  Additionally, and without restriction, Intrexon is entitled, at its election, to purchase an additional number of shares of Common Stock in the open market, or otherwise, that do not exceed an additional 10% of the number of shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding.
 
The foregoing references to and description of the Channel Agreement and the Stock Purchase Agreement do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full text of the Channel Agreement and the Purchase Agreement, which are included as Exhibits 1 and 2 hereto, respectively, and are incorporated by reference to this Item 3.
 
Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.
                    
The information set forth in Items 3 and 6 is incorporated herein by reference.
 
The Reporting Persons acquired the shares disclosed hereunder for investment purposes. The Reporting Persons may, from time to time, depending upon market conditions and other factors deemed relevant by the Reporting Persons, acquire shares of Common Stock or other capital stock of the Company outside of those contemplated by the Purchase Agreement. The Reporting Persons reserve the right to, and may in the future choose to, change their purpose with respect to the investment and take such actions as they deem appropriate in light of the circumstances including, without limitation, to dispose of, in the open market, in a privately negotiated transaction, by transfer, by exchange or by gift, all or a portion of the shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Company that they now own or may hereafter acquire.  Any decision of the Reporting Persons to increase their holdings in Common Stock or securities convertible into Common Stock, will depend, however, on numerous factors including, without limitation, the price of shares of Common Stock, the terms and conditions related to their purchase and sale, the prospects and profitability of the Company, other business and investment alternatives of the Reporting Persons, tax considerations and general economic and market conditions.  At any time, the Reporting Persons, or any of them, may determine to dispose of some or all of their holdings of Common Stock depending on those and other considerations.

(g)               Changes in the Company’s charter, bylaws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede the acquisition of control of the Company by any person;

The Reporting Persons’ response to Item 4 is incorporated herein by reference.
 
The Stock Purchase Agreement contains a standstill provision pursuant to which, among other things, Intrexon has agreed that, for a period of three years, subject to certain exceptions and unless invited in writing by the Company to do so, neither Intrexon nor its affiliates will, directly or indirectly:  (i) effect or seek, initiate, offer or propose to effect, or cause or participate in any acquisition of securities or assets of the Company; any tender or exchange offer, merger, consolidation or other business combination involving the Company; any recapitalization, restructuring, liquidation, dissolution or other extraordinary transaction with respect to the Company; or any “solicitation” of “proxies” or consents to vote any voting securities of the Company, or in any way advise or, assist any other person in doing so; (ii) form, join or in any way participate in a “group” with respect to any securities of the Company; (iii) otherwise act to seek to control or influence the management, Board of Directors or policies of the Company; (iv) take any action reasonably expected to force the Company to make a public announcement regarding any such matters; or (v) enter into any agreements, discussions or arrangements with any third party with respect to any of the foregoing.   Among other things and subject to certain exceptions, the standstill restrictions do not apply to the future purchase by Intrexon and/or its affiliates of up to 10% of the number of shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding in addition to the shares issuable pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement.
 
 
 

 
 
CUSIP No. 00685T108  Page 8 of 10
 
In connection with the transactions contemplated by the Stock Purchase Agreement, on December 7, 2011, the Company and Intrexon entered into a Registration Rights Agreement pursuant to which the Company agreed to file a “resale” registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) registering the resale of the First Tranche Shares within 120 days of the First Tranche Closing.  Under that agreement, the Company is obligated to use its reasonable best efforts to cause the Registration Statement to be declared effective as promptly as practicable after filing and to maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement until all securities therein are sold or otherwise can be sold pursuant to Rule 144, without any restrictions.

The foregoing references to and description of the Stock Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full text of the Stock Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement, which are included as Exhibits 2 and 3, respectively, and are incorporated by reference to this Item 6.
 
Except as set forth herein, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships (legal or otherwise), including, but not limited to, transfer or voting of any of the securities, finder’s fees, joint ventures, loan or option arrangements, puts or calls, guarantees of profits, division of profits or loss, or the giving or withholding of proxies, between the Reporting Persons, and any other person, with respect to any securities of the Company, including any securities pledged or otherwise subject to a contingency the occurrence of which would give another person voting power or investment power over such securities other than standard default and similar provisions contained in loan agreements.
