IPSCIO Record ID: 204312
RX-3117 is an oral prodrug activated by the enzyme Uridine Cytidine Kinase, or â€˜UCK2â€™, which is only present in cancer cells. Once activated by UCK2, RX-3117 inhibits DNA and RNA synthesis leading to cancer cell death. Because UCK2 is overexpressed in multiple human tumors â€“ but has a very limited presence in normal tissues, RX-3117 offers the potential for a targeted anti-cancer therapy with an improved efficacy and safety profile.
IPSCIO Record ID: 355917
Compound means RX-3117 (fluorocyclopentenylcytosine or also known as roducitabine) [which is a cytidine analog, similar to gemcitabine,][with a sequence of 4-amino-1-[(1S,4R,5S)-2-fluoro-4,5-dihydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl)cyclopent-2-en-1-yl] pyrimidin-2-one] together with all analogs, derivatives, metabolites, stereoisomers, polymorphs, formulations, mixtures or compositions thereof covered by Licensor Intellectual Property, and any existing or future improved or modified versions of the foregoing developed by or on behalf of Licensee, its Affiliates or Sublicensees.

The enzyme Quiescin Sulfhydryl Oxidase 1 (QSOX1) is a master regulator of extracellular matrix remodeling, and its overexpression by tumor cells. Overexpression of QSOX1 has been unambiguously linked to promoting tumor invasion and metastasis. It has been discovered that a small molecule SBI-183 inhibited the enzymatic activity of QSOX1 and as a result suppressed tumor cell invasion in vitro and metastasis of breast tumor cells in vivo.
This license is to technology relating to SBI-183, an anti-metastatic compound suppressing tumor cell growth and blocking metastasis. Small molecule SBI-183 inhibited the enzymatic activity of QSOX1 and as a result suppressed tumor cell invasion in vitro and metastasis of breast tumor cells in vivo. Through its medicinal chemistry efforts the Licensee synthesized multiple structural analogs of SBI-183 and unveiled SPX-1009 lead compound that demonstrated ten-fold improvement in suppressing invasion and metastasis in several cancer models.
SBI-183 enhances the activity of cytotoxic drugs in vitro.

Licensed Compound means NLG919 or any Next Generation Compound.
NLG919 means Licensorâ€™s proprietary small molecule IDO inhibitor known as of the Execution Date as NLG919, as further described in IND 119045 or any enantiomer, polymorph, salt form, base, acid, racemate, isomer, diastereomer, tautomer, solvate, hydrate, ester or Known Prodrug thereof.
Compound means a compound with a molecular weight of two thousand (2,000) Daltons or less], that hinds to and inhibits the activity of one or both of the 100 Target and TDO Target. with an IC50 of 1 ÂµMor less in the applicable Enzymatic Assay, and that is being researched, developed or commercialized to exert its influence through the inhibition of one or both of the IDO Target or TDO Target, including NLG919, but excluding Indoximod.
Enzymatic Assay means, with respect to the IDO Target, the assay described in IND 119045 Document PD0l-MRMP01 1-SP04-E248, and, with respect to the TDO Target. Enzymatic Assay shall also include an alternate means of detecting the products of the enzyme reactions or minor changes in the above enzyme assay protocols, as agreed upon by the JRC. Any IC50s of control compounds measured with an alternate assay format should fall within 3-fold of the assay method.
Indoximod means Licensorâ€™s proprietary small molecule IDO pathway inhibitor known as of the Execution Date as indoximod, or 1-methyl-D-tryptophan, or any, enantiomer, polymorph, salt form, base, acid, racemate, isomer, diastereomer, tautomer, solvate, hydrate, ester or Known Prodrug thereof.
IDO pathway inhibitors are another class of immune check point inhibitors akin to the recently developed antibodies targeting CTLA-4, PD-1, and PD-L1 that represent potential breakthrough approaches to cancer therapy. The IDO pathway regulates immune response by suppressing T-cell activation which enables local tumor immune escape. Recent studies have demonstrated that the IDO pathway is active in many cancers, both within tumor cells as a direct defense against T-cell attack, and also within antigen presenting cells in tumor draining lymph nodes whereby this pathway promotes peripheral tolerance to tumor associated antigens (TAAs). When hijacked by developing cancers in this manner, the IDO pathway may facilitate the survival, growth, invasion and metastasis of malignant cells whose expression of TAAs might otherwise be recognized and attacked by the immune system. NewLink has a number of active programs directed at synthesizing inhibitors to the IDO pathway and additionally has discovered novel tryptophan-2,3-dioxygenase (TDO) specific inhibitors that are potential anti-cancer compounds which could function individually or in combination with IDO inhibition.
Indication means any separately defined. well-categorized class of human disease, syndrome or medical condition for which a separate MAA may be filed with a Regulatory Authority. Each different tumor type or a different hematological malignancy as classified by cell lineage (e.g., acute lymphoblastic leukemia is a different Indication from chronic myclogenous leukemia) shall be a separate Indication; however each different line of therapy for a particular tumor type or hematological malignancy will not he considered a separate Indication.
