IPSCIO Record ID: 306496

License Grant
The Licensee was granted an exclusive license to certain Intellectual Property.
License Property
Licensor is the exclusive licensing agent for a University and representing Mayo Clinic’s interests in certain patents and intellectual property rights.  The Intellectual Property encompasses the inhibition of tumor growth using compounds that inhibit QSOX1 enzymatic activity and, specifically, to anti-neoplastic compounds targeting QSOX1 (the parent molecule referred to as SBI-183).

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.

Field of Use
Licensee was formed to develop a unique biomarker for cancer (QSOX1) as well as cancer diagnostic and therapeutic products based on QSOX1.  Licensee is a research and development company that aims to improve global cancer care through the development of proprietary therapeutics for inhibiting cancer growth and metastasis.

License Property
Licensor controls certain patents and know-how relating to its proprietary program regarding inhibitors of the IDO Target and TDO Target, including patents and know-hem covering the lead compound NLG919 and other compounds that are inhibitors of one or both targets.  IDO Target means indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1.  TDO Target means tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase.

Licensed Compound means NLG919 or any Next Generation Compound.

NLG919 means Licensor’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 µMor 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 Licensor’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.

Field of Use
The agreement also calls for the Parties to engage in a research collaboration for the discovery of next generation IDO/TDO compounds, which represent potential breakthrough approaches to cancer therapy.

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.
