IPSCIO Record ID: 7419

License Grant
The Licensee, as part of a strategic alliance, entered into an agreement with the Belgium Licensor.

The Licensor granted the Licensee an exclusive, worldwide, royalty-bearing license to MBX-8025 and certain other PPAR compounds (the PPAR Products) with the right to grant sublicenses to third parties to make, use and sell such PPAR Products.

License Property
PPAR – Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors form a family of nuclear hormone receptors involved in energy hemostasis and lipid metabolism.

MBX-8025 is a selective agonist (a substance that stimulates a response by binding to a receptor) for the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta (PPARd), a nuclear receptor that regulates genes involved in lipid storage and transport (particularly in fatty acid oxidation) and insulin signaling and sensitivity. In preclinical studies in rodents, dogs and primates, MBX-8025 demonstrated a variety of beneficial effects on the lipid profile and other metabolic parameters. MBX-8025 treatment increased peripheral oxidation of fatty acids leading to reduced levels of triglycerides (TGs) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), while raising high-density lipoprotein (HDL). MBX-8025 inhibited fat mass accumulation, resulting in attenuation of body weight gain in rodent models of obesity.

MBX-8025 has potential therapeutic application for disorders linked to deficits in lipid storage, handling and utilization, many of which result in metabolic disorders. To date, it has been in development as a first-in-class treatment that effectively addresses all three lipid disorders associated with mixed dyslipidemia (abnormal lipid levels in the blood) as well as a majority of the cardiovascular risk factors that define metabolic syndrome. The future development program will focus on high unmet need indications in dyslipidemia as well as in high unmet need specialty and orphan diseases.

The 8-week Phase 2 study investigated MBX-8025 at doses of 50 or 100 mg/day in moderately obese patients with mixed dyslipidemia. The study demonstrated that treatment with MBX-8025 led to significant reductions in total LDL (~20%) and selective depletion of the small dense atherogenic (promotion of arterial plaque formation) LDL particles, resulting in an exceptional improvement in the LDL particle size profile. It also decreased TGs (~30%) and raised HDL (~12%). This unique combination of effects significantly decreased the atherogenic risk of patients’ lipid profile. When administered in combination with atorvastatin (Lipitor®), MBX-8025 provided a comprehensive improvement in all lipid and cardiovascular risk parameters without side effects seen in other combination lipid therapies.

In addition, MBX-8025 addressed other aspects of metabolic syndrome, including improvements in insulin sensitivity and trends toward decreased waist circumference and body fat. Over half of the patients that entered the Phase 2 study meeting the criteria for metabolic syndrome no longer met the criteria at the end of the study.

The product seladelpar is for the treatment of primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), an autoimmune disease that causes progressive destruction of the bile ducts in the liver. Seladelpar is a potent and selective agonist of PPARd, a nuclear receptor that regulates genes important for lipid, bile acid/sterol and glucose metabolism and for inflammation in liver and muscle.

Field of Use
This agreement pertains to the drug industry relating to treatment of an autoimmune disease.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Licensee has full control and responsibility over the research, development and registration of any PPAR Products and is required to use diligent efforts to conduct all such activities.

The Licensee shall grant the Licensor a worldwide, exclusive, irrevocable license under the agreement in all information that is controlled, developed or acquired by the Licensee which relates to a PPAR compound or PPAR product and in all patents that are filed.

License Property
Licensor is a drug discovery company that has expertise and proprietary technology relating to compounds that modulate the Farnesoid X Receptor.

Licensed Compound means any Existing Compound or any Derivative. Any Licensed Compound shall also include any salt, metabolite, prodrug, constitutional or geometric isomer, regioisomer, stereoisomer including any enantiomer or diastereoisomer, salt form, hydrate, solvate, polymorph or other physical form of any such compound.

Bioisosteric Scaffold means any scaffold that is bioisosteric to a Licensor Agreement Scaffold and Controlled by Licensee.

Field of Use
This agreement is related to compounds targeting the farnesoid X receptor, or FXR, a nuclear hormone receptor implicated in a variety of metabolic and liver disorders.

Licensee is a multinational health care company that has expertise and capability in developing and marketing human pharmaceuticals and has research and development programs.

Farnesoid X receptor is a nuclear receptor that is encoded by the NR1H4 gene in humans.

XL335 targets the Farnesoid X Receptor (FXR) and has been shown to function as a bile acid receptor regulating genes involved in lipid, cholesterol and bile acid homeostasis. We have identified proprietary, potent and selective FXR ligands (a compound that binds to a receptor) that have good oral bioavailability and drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic properties. In rodent models of dyslipidemia, these compounds lowered triglycerides by decreasing triglyceride synthesis and secretion. In addition, they improved the high-density lipoprotein (HDL)/low-density lipoprotein (LDL) ratio and are anti-atherogenic (preventing the formation of lipid deposits in the arteries) in animal models of atherosclerosis. XL335 is also effective in models of cholestasis (a condition in which bile excretion from the liver is blocked), cholesterol gallstones and liver fibrosis. These data suggest that small molecule ligands targeting FXR should function as novel therapeutic agents for treating symptoms and disease states associated with metabolic syndrome as well as certain liver disorders.

IPSCIO Record ID: 322362

License Grant
Licensor grants an exclusive, worldwide license to develop, manufacture and commercialize PCSK9.
License Property
PCSK9 is a RNAi therapeutics targeting proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9.

PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9) is a protein that regulates low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor levels on hepatocytes; gain-of-function human mutations in PCSK9 are associated with hypercholesterolemia while loss-of-function mutations are associated with lower levels of LDL cholesterol and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Field of Use
PCSK9 is for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia and other human diseases, including inclisiran.

Hypercholesterolemia, also called high cholesterol, is the presence of high levels of cholesterol in the blood. It is a form of hyperlipidemia, high blood lipids, and hyperlipoproteinemia (elevated levels of lipoproteins in the blood).

Hypercholesterolemia is a condition characterized by very high levels of cholesterol in the blood which is known to increase the risk of coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S. Some forms of hypercholesterolemia can be treated through dietary restrictions, lifestyle modifications (e.g., exercise and smoking cessation) and medicines such as statins.

Inclisiran is an experimental drug for the treatment of patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), ASCVD risk equivalents and heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH). It is a small interfering RNA that inhibits translation of the protein PCSK9.

IPSCIO Record ID: 300

License Grant
The University grants the Licensee an exclusive right and license to practice, commercialize and otherwise exploit the Licensed Patents and grants the exclusive right and license to make, have made, research, develop, use, lease, offer to sell, sell, import and export Licensed Products, within the Licensed Field of Use in the Licensed Territory during the term.
The Licensee has the right to grant sublicenses.
License Property
The licensee covers AEM-28 and certain analogs.

U.S. Patent No. 6,156,727. Anti-atherosclerotic peptides and a transgenic mouse model of atherosclerosis.
U.S. Patent No 6,506,880. Synthetic peptides that enhance atherogenic lipoprotein uptake and lower plasma cholesterol.
U.S. Patent No. 7,653,771. Synthetic single domain polypeptides mimicking apolipoprotien F, Anantharamaiah.

Apolipoprotein E (Apo E) is a 299 amino acid protein that plays an important role in lipoprotein metabolism. AEM-28 is a 28 amino acid mimetic of Apo E that contains a domain that anchors into a lipoprotein surface while also providing the Apo E binding domain that is removed by heparin sulfate receptors in the liver. AEM-28 as an Apo E mimetic has the potential to restore the ability of atherogenic lipoproteins to be cleared from the plasma, completing the reverse cholesterol transport pathway, and thereby reducing cardiovascular risk. This is an important mechanism of action for AEM-28. For patients that lack LDL receptors (Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia or HoFH), have Severe Refractory Hypercholesterolemia, or have acute coronary syndrome, AEM-28 may provide a therapeutic solution.

Field of Use
Licensed Field of Use means any and all diagnostic, therapeutic and prophylactic uses in all fields of use, and for all indications except diseases of the eye.
