Property No. 62/219,652 IN VIVO ACTIVATION OF NATURAL KILLER CELLS
Licensee, a cancer immunotherapy company focused on developing therapies that harness the patient's innate immune system to attack their cancer.
IPSCIO Record ID: 285867
NK cells typically represent approximately 2% to 13% of circulating lymphocytes and are a critical component of the immune system responsible for innate immunity. Unlike adaptive immune cells, they are ever present and ready to attack, having the inherent ability to detect and eliminate diseased cells without the need for antigen presentation, which is why they are called â€œnatural killers.â€

Licensor owns the rights to Patent Application Serial No. 62/478520 filed 03-29-17 â€œMethods of Re-Activating Dormant Memory Cells with Anticancer Activityâ€ and commercially named â€œMemoryMuneâ€.
The patent licensed provides means to recapitulate a natural immune response ex vivo through activation of innate immune cells, and subsequently utilizing products generated by said cells to stimulate adaptive immune cells to acquire ability to induce killing or inhibiting proliferation of cells expressing oncogenic transformations. In one embodiment of the invention, innate immune cells are activated with stimuli capable of inducing production of cytokines associated with induction of immunity to intracellular abnormalities; said cytokines are further administered to adaptive immune cells in a patient in need of treatment.
Licensee intends to develop products that can be used together to attack cancer at different levels, as well as to be used alone or in combination with existing therapies.
Developing the novel immunological use of mifepristone in the area of oncology adds another weapon in the fight against cancer using the patientâ€™s own immune system. Natural killer cells are a unique arm of the immune system that is capable of killing cancer cells without prior sensitization. The findings that mifepristone is capable of reducing cancer associated suppression of the natural killer cell compartment, we believe, positions mifepristone as a potentially valuable therapeutic in utilization of the immune system to kill tumors.
IPSCIO Record ID: 246211
INB03 is a novel innate immune system check-point inhibitor that targets Myeloid Derived Suppressor Cells.
Myeloid Derived Suppressor Cells (MDSC) of the innate immune system are often increased in patients with cancer. The level of MDSC in the blood or the tumor microenvironment predict severity of disease, risk of dying from the cancer, and the failure of other immunotherapy treatment strategies such as currently available check point inhibitors. The MDSC secrete immunosuppressive cytokines that protect the tumor from attack by the patient's immune system. Strategies that target MDSC are needed to continue to make progress in the treatment of cancer.

With respect to CNDO-109, the Company has exclusive rights to International Patent Application No. PCT/GB2006/000960 and all pending United States and foreign counterpart applications including granted U.S. Patents No. 8,257,970 and 8,637,308 and the corresponding national phase applications granted in Australia and India and filed in Canada, Europe and Japan, directed to the stimulation of NK cells and related CNDO-109 compositions and methods including methods for the treatment of cancer and other conditions. This patent family has been in-licensed on an exclusive basis from University. The CNDO-109 patent has an expiration date of January 2029 in the absence of any patent term extension. By way of an amendment to the license agreement with Unversity, we also have exclusive rights to International Application No. PCT/GB2010/051135 and all pending United States and foreign counterpart applications including pending United States Patent Application Serial No. 12/833,694 and the corresponding national phase applications filed in Europe, Brazil, China, Israel, Singapore and South Africa, directed to the preservation of activated NK cells and related compositions and methods. The CNDO-109 patents that may issue from the former patent family would expire in July 2030 in the absence of any patent term extension. The amendment includes rights to certain additional confidential technologies as well.
CNDO-109 is a compound that has been shown to activate NK cells. When activated, NK cells have the ability to differentiate between normal cells and cancer cells, and kill cancer cells by granzyme mediated lysis, a biochemical process whereby the NK cells directly kill cancer cells by destroying their cell membranes and structures.
