IPSCIO Record ID: 240611

License Grant
This amends the Agreement to, among other things, provide for an extension of the term of the Agreement in consideration for a payment by Licensee of an extension fee,  allow each party to develop and commercialize Products in the Field independently from the Collaboration,  following termination or expiration of the Agreement, allow each Party to develop and commercialize on its own any non-Collaboration Products that were originated by such Party during the term of the Agreement, and, provide that SGN-17/ 19 shall no longer be a Collaboration Product.

With this amendment, the license now reads
Licensor grants a worldwide, non-exclusive license or sub-license under the Licensee Technology and Licensees interest in Joint Technology, with the limited right to sublicense, solely to Exploit Collaboration Products and Unilateral Products within the Field.

License Property
Licensor Patents means Licensor Background Patents, Licensor TEPT Patents and Licensor i-mune Patents.

Licensor i-mune Inventions means any Information and Inventions made prior to or during the Term solely by Licensee employees, solely by Licensor employees or jointly by Licensee employees and Licensor employees that relate to the use of or compositions of matter arising from use of i-mune.

i-mune means methods useful or necessary for determining and engineering T-cell epitope(s) in a protein, peptide, antibody or fragment of any of these.

ADEPT represents a novel approach to treating cancer through the combination of two relatively non-toxic agents to achieve potent antitumor activity. The ADEPT approach involves two steps. In the first step, monoclonal antibody fragments genetically fused to enzymes are administered and accumulate within tumor tissues. In the second step, a relatively inactive form of an anti-cancer drug (termed a prodrug) is administered and is subsequently converted by the targeted enzymes into a potent cell-killing drug that can penetrate into and kill cancer cells. This method of drug delivery results in higher drug concentrations within tumor cells, while sparing normal tissues many of the toxic effects of chemotherapy.

Field of Use
The Field, for protein, peptide, and antibody, includes preclinical research, clinical research, manufacturing, regulatory filings and post approval development studies and the Therapeutics Field.

BiTE Product means any composition or formulation consisting of or comprising a bi-specific Single Chain Antibody expressed as a single polypeptide chain, binding to T-cells.

GM-CSF Target means the whole or part of the human granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor identified by the SWISS-PROT entry name CSF2 HUMAN and accession number P0414 l.

Single-Chain Antibodies
Antibodies are proteins produced by the body's immune system in response to the presence of antigens, such as bacteria, viruses or other disease causing agents. Antibodies of identical molecular structure that bind to a specific target are called monoclonal antibodies. Single-chain antibodies are genetically engineered antibodies that incorporate only the antigen binding domains of an antibody. Thus, SCAs have the binding specificity and affinity of monoclonal antibodies; however, in their native form they are only one-fifth to one-sixth the size of a monoclonal. The small size of SCAs typically gives them shorter half-lives than monoclonal antibodies, making them better suited for use in acute indications or in other indications where the large size of a monoclonal antibody would inhibit the compound from reaching the area of potential therapeutic activity. In addition, SCAs are a well-established discovery format-of-choice in generating antibodies from phage or yeast display libraries.

Field of Use
The field for Patent 5,223,409 is solely in the field of manufacture, use or sale of Single Chain Antibodies.

The field of use for this agreement otherwise is limited to not include the right to exploit the Products for Radioimmunoguided Surgery(TM), Reagents and kits in the research market for production and cloning of genes encoding Single Chain Antibodies and their fusions in a filamentous bacteriophage-derived vector system, and for expression and screening of Single Chain Antibodies fused with the minor coat protein or attachment or adsorption protein of filamentous bacteriophage, and, Single Chain Antibodies fused with, or for the assay or purification of, Tumor Necrosis l Factor alpha (TNF-a.) or Lymphotoxin.
