IPSCIO Record ID: 297935

License Grant
Licensee has exclusively licensed the Xpress CF technology for the vaccine field from Licensor, who has industrialized and scaled the platform at its GMP facility.

Under a license from Licensor, Licensee has right to use the XpressCF® and XpressCF+™ platforms to discover and develop vaccine candidates for the treatment or prophylaxis of infectious diseases.

License Property
Licensor retains the right to discover and develop vaccines for treatment or prophylaxis of any disease not caused by an infectious pathogen, including cancer.

XpressCF® – integrated cell-free protein synthesis platform

XpressCF+â„¢ –  site-specific conjugation platform

Both of these platforms allow to rapidly and precisely create optimally designed, next-generation protein therapeutics candidates.

The platform represents a major advancement over conventional conjugate vaccine production methods, by enabling precise and consistent conjugation of antigens to site-specific locations on a protein carrier that do not impede T-cell help resulting in higher-potency conjugates.

Field of Use
XpressCF® and XpressCF+â„¢ technology platforms  led to the discovery of STRO-001 and STRO-002, Licensor’s first two internally-developed ADCs. STRO-001 is a CD74-targeting ADC currently being investigated in a Phase I clinical trial of patients with advanced B-cell malignancies, including multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

IPSCIO Record ID: 305790

License Grant
Under this license, Licensee received an exclusive, worldwide, royalty-bearing, sublicenseable license under Licensor’s patents and know-how relating to cell-free expression of proteins to (i) research, develop, use, sell, offer for sale, export, import and otherwise exploit specified vaccine compositions, such rights being sublicensable, for the treatment or prophylaxis of infectious diseases, excluding cancer vaccines, and (ii) manufacture, or have manufactured by an approved contract manufacturing organization, such vaccine compositions from extracts supplied by Licensor pursuant to the Licensor Supply Agreement.  Licensee is obligated to use commercially reasonable efforts to develop, obtain regulatory approval for and commercialize the vaccine compositions.
License Property
The vaccine compositions used the Licensors proprietary cell-free protein expression technology, known as XpressCF which utilizes extracts derived from strains of E. Coli.

Licensor is a clinical stage, publicly-traded drug discovery, development and manufacturing company using precise protein engineering and rational design (enabled by Licensors proprietary XpressCF platform technology) to advance next-generation oncology therapeutics.

The primary invention underpinning the XpressCF platform was the creation of engineered E.coli-derived proprietary extracts containing fully functional oxidative phosphorylation machinery in inverted membrane vesicles and orthogonal tRNA capable of catalyzing nnAA incorporation. This innovation enables the Extract to regenerate high energy phosphates required for protein translation and nnAA incorporation, reducing production cost and permitting the use of industrial sized reaction vessels and longer manufacturing run times than previously thought possible. The XpressCF system routinely produces g/L of complex proteins in 8-10 hours and scales linearly from bench to large-scale GMP production. The protein of interest is produced at high yield and the absence of cellular debris combine to simplify downstream purification, further enhancing production efficiency.

Field of Use
The XpressCF platform is used in the field of vaccines to address infectious diseases in both human and animal use.

XpressCFâ„¢, an industrialized cell-free protein synthesis platform, for the vaccine field allowing (1) site-specific conjugation; (2) production of complex antigens in more optimal conformation; and (3) speed, flexibility and scalability of the discovery engine.

The XpressCF platform overcomes these significant limitations by separating the precise cellular machinery required for transcription, translation, and energy production into an E.coli-derived mixture, or Extract capable of continuous oxidative phosphorylation.

Licensee is a next-generation vaccine company whose cell-free protein synthesis platform enables the design and production of optimized protein carriers and antigens, the critical building blocks of vaccines.

IPSCIO Record ID: 307594

License Grant
The parties partnered to jointly develop and commercialize three of Licensor’s early-stage investigational bispecific antibody product candidates and enter into a discovery research collaboration for future differentiated antibody therapeutics for cancer.
License Property
Epcoritamab (DuoBody-CD3xCD20) is a bispecific antibody created using Licensor’s proprietary DuoBody technology. Epcoritamab is designed to target CD3, which is expressed on T cells and is part of the T cell receptor signaling complex, and CD20, a clinically well validated therapeutic target. CD20 is expressed on a majority of B cell malignancies, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), follicular lymphoma (FL) and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). In a number of laboratory models, epcoritamab has shown highly effective killing of CD20+ tumors and induced potent tumor cell lysis across a panel of B cell tumor lines. Epcoritamab is currently evaluated in a Phase 1/2 study for multiple hematological B cell malignancies.

The companies will partner to develop Licensor’s next-generation bispecific antibody programs, epcoritamab (DuoBody®-CD3xCD20), DuoHexaBody®-CD37 and DuoBody-CD3x5T4. The collaboration combines Licensor’s world-class discovery and development engine and next-generation bispecific antibody therapeutic candidates with Licensee’s deep clinical expertise, innovative antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) platform and global commercial leadership in hematological cancers. Licensor’s DuoBody-CD3 technology engages and directs cytotoxic T cells selectively to tumors to elicit an immune response towards malignant tumor cells. Licensee’s ADC technology allows the delivery of a therapeutic toxin directly to cancer cells while sparing normal, healthy cells, providing for a more targeted, less toxic treatment approach.

Licensor is a biotechnology company specializing in the creation and development of differentiated antibody therapeutics for the treatment of cancer. Licensors technology base consists of validated and proprietary next generation antibody technologies – the DuoBody® platform for generation of bispecific antibodies, the HexaBody® platform, which creates effector function enhanced antibodies, the HexElect® platform, which combines two co-dependently acting HexaBody molecules to introduce selectivity while maximizing therapeutic potency and the DuoHexaBody® platform, which enhances the potential potency of bispecific antibodies through hexamerization.

Field of Use
The field of use is for the treatment of cancer utilizing antibodies. Bispecific antibodies (also known as dual-targeting molecules) bind to two different epitopes, either on the same or on different targets. This may improve the antibodies’ specificity and efficacy in inactivating the disease target cells.

Licensee has a clinical expertise, innovative antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) platform and global commercial leadership in hematological cancers.
