IPSCIO Record ID: 306612

License Grant
Licensor, a nonprofit organization providing investigators and clinicians scientific, granted exclusive worldwide rights to several U.S. and foreign patents and patent applications.
License Property
The patents and patent applications covering methods of using GP2 as an immunotherapy that elicits a targeted immune response against HER2/neu-expressing cancers.

GP2 is an immunotherapy designed to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer following surgery. GP2 is a 9 amino acid transmembrane peptide of the HER2/neu (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) protein, a cell surface receptor protein that is expressed in a variety of common cancers, including expression in 75% of breast cancers at low (1+), intermediate (2+), and high (3+ or over-expressor) levels. The patents are titled Vaccine for the Prevention of Breast Cancer Recurrence, and, Targeted Identification of Immunogenic Peptides.

GP2, an immunotherapy designed to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer following surgery. GP2 is a 9 amino acid transmembrane peptide of the HER2/neu (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) protein, a cell surface receptor protein that is expressed in a variety of common cancers, including expression in 75% of breast cancers at low (1+), intermediate (2+), and high (3+ or over-expressor) levels. In a Phase IIb clinical trial completed in 2018, no recurrences were observed in the HER2/neu 3+ adjuvant setting after median 5 years of follow-up, if the patient received the 6 primary intradermal injections over the first 6 months.

Following breast cancer surgery, a HER2/neu 3+ patient receives Herceptin in the first year, with the hope that their breast cancer will not recur, with the odds of recurrence slowly decreasing over the first 5 years after surgery. Herceptin has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 25% to 12% in the adjuvant setting while Kadcyla has been shown to reduce recurrence rates from 22% to 11% in the neoadjuvant setting.

IPSCIO Record ID: 240612

License Grant
This amendment details terms, clarifies transfers of technology and modifies the royalty.  The original agreement is exclusive.
License Property
The licensed property is regarding Licensors antibody-drug conjugate technology.

'ADCs utilize the targeting ability of monoclonal antibodies to deliver potent, cell-killing payloads to specific cells.  ADC technology employs synthetic, highly potent drugs that can be attached to antibodies through proprietary linker systems. The linkers are designed to be stable in the bloodstream but to release the drug payload under specific conditions once inside target cells, thereby sparing non-target cells many of the toxic effects of traditional chemotherapy.

Field of Use
The Field, described in the original agreement, means any and all Antibody targeting applications for human or animal use unless mutually agreed to by the Parties.

IPSCIO Record ID: 322039

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.
