License Grant
The Licensor, a university foundation, granted the Licensee the worldwide right and license, to use the Licensed Technology for the non-invasive measurement of carotenoids and similar or related compounds in human skin including related research and to the extent not prohibited by other patents to practice the licensed processes, until the expiration of the last to expire of any of Licensor's rights in the technology and the right to sublicense the same.
License Property
The Licensor's technology relates to Case No. U-2612, entitled Noninvasive Detection and Mapping of Chemical Substances in the Skin and Skin Related Malignancies and Case No. U-2970, entitled Method and System for Raman Chemical Imaging of Carotenoids and Related Compounds in Living Human Tissue for use in the sale of dietary supplements (the “Dietary Supplement License”.

A method and apparatus are provided for the determination of levels of carotenoids and similar chemical compounds in biological tissue such as living skin (34). The method and apparatus provide a noninvasive, rapid, accurate, and safe determination of carotenoid levels which in turn can provide diagnostic information regarding cancer risk, or can be a marker for conditions where carotenoids or other antioxidant compounds may provide diagnostic information.  The method and apparatus utilize the technique of resonance Raman spectroscopy to measure the levels of carotenoids and similar substances in tissue. In this technique, laser light is directed upon the area of tissue which is of interest. A small fraction of the scattered light is scattered inelastically, producing the carotenoid Raman signal which is at a different frequency than the incident laser light, and the Raman signal is collected, filtered, and measured. The resulting Raman signal can be analyzed such that the background fluorescence signal is subtracted and the results displayed and compared with known calibration standards.

Field of Use
Field of Use shall mean the use of the Licensed Technology for the non-invasive measurement of carotenoids and similar or related compounds in human skin including related research; however, the above Field of Use does not include the use of the technology for identifying, imaging, locating, and/or diagnosing skin lesions or skin malignancies in human patients.

Licensor, an individual, hereby grants and Licensee hereby accepts an exclusive irrevocable license for use of the Technology in the human and veterinary medical fields, to produce, have produced, manufacture, have manufactured for it, to use and/or sell Patented Products to any distributor, reseller or end user (i.e., physicians, veterinarians, hospitals, clinics, universities or any other user), either separately or in combination with other products, and to use the Technology and Licensor Know-How in the specified fields, with the right to sublicense its Subsidiaries.
License Property
Licensor has invented, developed and filed patent applications relating to certain electronic endoscopes, flexible optical catheters, complementary viewing systems, and related disposable products for use in connection with detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease or injury in humans and animals.

1. OPTICAL CATHETER. All methods, apparatus, claims and products relating to certain products, processes and techniques described for use in and for a system consisting of a small diameter endoscope comprise of a sterilizable optical catheter which carries a coherent fiber-optic bundle capable of transmitting an image, and parallel fiber-optic bundles capable of transmitting light, which is coupled to an apparatus consisting of an eyepiece and/or console containing light source(s), camera(s) and viewing screen(s), as described in that certain patent application (No. 018,630) filed by Licensor with the U.S. Patent Office on February 25, 1987 (the 'Patent Application').
