License Grant
Licensor, a non-profit institution, hereby grants to Licensee and its Affiliates a worldwide, non-exclusive license, under Licensor Know-How and Licensed Patents (I) for all internal research and development purposes, including without limitation, the right to make, use and import Licensor Know How and inventions claimed in the Licensed Patents and (ii) to develop, make, use, market, sell, offer for sale, export and import, in the Field of Use, Licensed Products, including without limitation those covered by Valid Claims in the Licensed Patents.
License Property
Intellectual property relates to the induction of gene silencing in mammalian cells through RNAi.

RNA interference, or RNAi, is a naturally occurring mechanism within cells for selectively silencing specific genes, an ability that could become the basis for a whole new class of therapeutic products. The discovery of RNAi has been heralded by many as a major breakthrough, and the journal Science named RNAi the top scientific achievement of 2002 as well as one of the top ten scientific advances of 2003. Because many diseases are caused by the inappropriate activity of specific genes, the ability to silence such genes selectively through RNAi could provide a means to treat a wide range of human diseases.

Licensed Patents means the U.S. Patent Applications listed below and any divisions, continuations, reissues, reexamines, extensions and continuations-in-part applications thereof and any patents issuing thereto; and any and all foreign patents, foreign applications, extensions and supplemental protection certificates or patent applications corresponding thereto having the Principal Investigator as an inventor and claiming the same priority date as a parent application.

LNP intellectual property for use in RNAi therapeutic products using LNP technology.

LNP technology relates to where RNAi therapeutics have the potential to treat a broad number of human diseases by “silencing” disease causing genes. RNAi therapeutics, such as “siRNAs,” require delivery technology to be effective systemically. LNP technology represents the most widely adopted delivery technology for the systemic delivery of RNAi therapeutics. Licensor’s LNP platform is being utilized in multiple clinical trials.  LNP technology encapsulates siRNAs with high efficiency in uniform lipid nanoparticles that are effective in delivering RNAi therapeutics to disease sites in numerous preclinical models.

RNAi Product means a product containing, comprised of or based on siRNA, Dicer Substrates, Multivalent RNA, or any derivatives thereof, which are effective in gene function modulation and designed to modulate the function of particular genes or gene products by causing degradation through RNA interference of a Target mRNA to which such siRNAs or siRNA derivatives or moieties are complementary. For greater clarity, an RNAi Product shall not include Antisense.

siRNA means a double-stranded ribonucleic acid (RNA) composition designed to act primarily through an RNA interference mechanism that consists of either (a) two separate oligomers of native or chemically modified RNA that are hybridized to one another along a substantial portion of their lengths, or (b) a single oligomer of native or chemically modified RNA that is hybridized to itself by self-complementary base-pairing along a substantial portion of its length to form a hairpin.

Supplemental Field Product means a product containing, comprised of, or based on Antisense or Gene Therapy.

Intellectual Property means any and all discoveries, inventions, information, knowledge, know-how, trade secrets, designs, practices, methods, uses, compositions of matter, articles of manufacture, protocols, formulas, processes, assays, skills, experience, techniques, data, reports, and results of experimentation and testing and other scientific or technical information, patentable or otherwise, controlled by a party after the Effective Date.

RNAi (RNA interference) is a revolution in biology, representing a breakthrough in understanding how genes are turned on and off in cells, and a completely new approach to drug discovery and development. Its discovery has been heralded as “a major scientific breakthrough that happens once every decade or so,” and represents one of the most promising and rapidly advancing frontiers in biology and drug discovery. RNAi is a natural process of gene silencing that occurs in organisms ranging from plants to mammals.

Field of Use
Field of Use means the delivery of an RNAi Product for any and all purposes.

Supplemental Field means the delivery of (i) single-stranded oligonucleotides, either chemically modified or unmodified, acting through the RNase H mechanism or by or other mechanisms of translational arrest but excluding RNA interference involving RISC (“Antisense”) and (ii) DNA plasmids or messenger RNA (mRNA) either chemically modified or unmodified that are transcribed and/or translated into protein and wherein the pharmacological activity is dependent on expression of the protein (Gene Therapy).

Since many diseases are caused by the inappropriate activity of specific genes, the ability to silence genes selectively through RNAi could provide a new way to treat a wide range of human diseases. RNAi is induced by small, double-stranded RNA molecules. One method to activate RNAi is with chemically synthesized small interfering RNAs, or siRNAs, which are double-stranded RNAs that are targeted to a specific disease-associated gene. The siRNA molecules are used by the natural RNAi machinery in cells to cause highly targeted gene silencing.

Licensor grants a non-exclusive right and license under the Licensor Patent Rights for the sole and exclusive purposes of Researching, Developing and Commercializing Licensed RNAi Products for the Target in the Field in the Territory.
License Property
Licensor has intellectual property covering technology useful for the discovery, development, manufacture, characterization, or use of therapeutic products that function through RNA interference (RNAi).

Patents include short double-stranded RNAs as therapeutics.

Licensees target is RTP 801, or, DNA•damage-inducible transcript 4.

Field of Use
Field means the use of therapeutic RNAi Products against the Target for the treatment in humans of ocular diseases, loss of hearing, emphysema and pressure sores.

Emphysema is a long-term, progressive disease of the lungs that primarily causes shortness of breath due to over-inflation of the alveoli (air sacs in the lung). In people with emphysema, the lung tissue involved in exchange of gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) is impaired or destroyed.

License Property
Licensor has rights for certain methods of producing and analyzing the phenotypes of gene knockout mice for the discovery of gene and protein function.

The Cre-Lox Patents means United States patent number 4,959,317, any foreign counterpart patents and patent applications.

Diagnostic Product means any product or service derived from or directed to Research Program Gene Products or Licensed Gene Products for use in the Diagnostic Field.

Therapeutic Protein shall mean any product or service, including gene therapy, which uses a protein, peptide or polypeptide which is a Gene Product in the treatment or prevention of any disease, state or condition in humans.

Licensed Gene Product means any Gene Product for which Licensee and /or Licensor is granted a license in the Commercialization Field.

A protein that is extruded from inside the cell through the cell membrane is referred to as a 'secreted protein.' These proteins contain a signal sequence that guides them from interior of the cell through the cell membrane and into the general circulation. Many secreted proteins, such as cytokines and hormones, are of therapeutic importance and have been commercialized by other companies to be very successful therapeutic agents.

Field of Use
Commercialization Field means, collectively, the Diagnostic Field and the Therapeutic Field.

Diagnostic Field means in vitro or in vivo diagnosis or pre-screening of human patients to determine therapeutic eligibility for a Product in the Therapeutic Field or for monitoring human patients receiving a Product in the Therapeutic Field; provided, however, that the Diagnostic Field excludes the commercialization of diagnostic products for which no Regulatory Approval has been obtained and which are not the subject of an active application for Regulatory Approval, multi-gene diagnostic products, and diagnostic products directed to quantitative detection of relative RNA transcript abundance of multiple RNA species.

Research Field means use by Licensee, Licensor and their respective Affiliates, at the internal research facilities of Licensee, Licensor and their respective Affiliates, for research directed toward the discovery, identification, selection, or characterization of Products.
