LNA Technology, developed by the Licensor, is based on Locked Nucleic Acid, a proprietary synthetic analog of ribonucleic acid (RNA) which is fixed in the shape adopted by RNA in helical conformation. When incorporated into a short nucleic acid chain (both DNA and RNA are made up of longer chains of natural nucleic acids), the presence of LNA results in several therapeutic advantages. Because LNA resembles RNA but is more stable, LNA-containing drugs have both very high binding affinity for RNA and metabolic stability. Using the â€œantisenseâ€ principle to block the function of specific RNAs within cells and tissues, such drugs have enhanced potency and specificity and may provide improved efficacy at lower doses than comparable drugs based on alternative chemistry. As a result, RNA Antagonists comprised of LNA have been demonstrated to be 100 to 1,000 times more potent in vitro than conventional antisense compounds and also to demonstrate more efficacy in vivo than the best siRNAâ€™s (small interfering RNAs) published to date. In particular, they can be used to switch off the synthesis of harmful proteins, thereby potentially altering disease outcomes in cancer or other serious disorders.

Oligonucleotide Licensed Product shall mean a Licensed Product which is an oligonucleotide N3—>P5 phosphoramidate.
5,599,922 – Oligonucleotide N3-P5 phosphoramidates hybridization and nuclease resistance properties
5,591,607 – Oligonucleotide N3.fwdarw.P5 phosphoramidates triplex DNA formation
5,631,135 – Oligonucleotide N3.fwdarw.P5 phosphoramidates hybridization and nuclease resistance properties
Phosphoramidate-based oligonucleotides represent a new class of synthetic nucleic acids that have demonstrated a number of potential advantages over earlier-generation oligonucleotide chemistries, including enhanced sequence-specific DNA and RNA binding activity, a high resistance to degradation, and improved cellular uptake and biodistribution. These properties offer significant potential for the development of improved synthetic nucleic acid molecules to be used in both therapeutic and diagnostic applications. Transgenomic currently supplies the modified building block compounds that Geron uses to synthesize novel therapeutic thio-phosphoramidate oligonucleotides that target cancer cells by inhibiting telomerase.
Transgenomic provides versatile and innovative research tools and related consumable products to the life sciences industry for the synthesis, separation, analysis and purification of nucleic acids and a wide variety of nucleic acid-based specialty chemicals. Through its nucleic acids business segment, Transgenomic provides specialty chemicals, including advanced nucleic acid building blocks and associated reagents, used in applications such as genetic diagnostics and therapeutics.

VEGF is known to play a role in the development of both ophthalmic diseases.
The Product shall mean any pharmaceutical composition containing NX1838 in any formulation, dosage concentration or volume, together with all label expansions, line extensions and improvements thereon, which may be included in any supplement, modification or addition to the filings for Regulatory Approval of the foregoing compound.
NX 1838 has the potential to be a breakthrough drug for the treatment of neovascular AMD.
AMD is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in people aged 65 and older. The disease is characterized by the growth of blood vessels into the center of the retina. Over time, the leakage from these small blood vessels causes the formation of scar tissue on the retina. A patientâ€™s central vision gradually deteriorates as the disease destroys the retina, ultimately resulting in irreversible blindness. The two common types of AMD are atrophic ('dry') and neovascular ('wet'). Wet macular degeneration accounts for approximately 10 percent of all cases but is a more serious threat to complete vision loss than the dry form.
IPSCIO Record ID: 7111
Product or Products shall mean any human therapeutics, diagnostics (including algorithms or any components thereof), bioinformatics and any other human health care products and/or services in the Field of Use utilizing or derived in any manner whatsoever from any of the Patent Rights, Technical Information or Licensee Improvements, which Product(s), except for the license granted hereunder, would infringe a Valid Claim, the Patent Rights or those Future Patent Rights licensed to Licensee.
Licensee has developed a new anti-cancer agent as well as a new methodology specific for the treatment of invasive tumors such as glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive form of brain cancer, as well as both Her2-positive and Her2-negative breast cancers.
Licensee believes this approach is effective against brain and breast cancer in rodents, significantly extending their longevity and decrease the tumor size. Licensee proposes to expand this proprietary technology to other forms of cancer treatments together with common eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
The technology is a family of related nano-biopolymers collectively referred to as Polycefinâ„¢ that are capable of acting as a drug delivery and targeting platform for cancer therapy and diagnostics. The new nanoscale drug, Polycefin, based on Licenseeâ€™s delivery system, was developed and patented by Licenseeâ€™s scientists. It is non-toxic, non-immunogenic, and biodegradable. It is based on a naturally derived polymer, i.e., polymalic acid. A significant feature of this novel agent is its ability to target multimeric tumor-associated proteins with one drug, a capability that other existing agents do not have. Licensee has proven that the significant anti-tumor and antiÂangiogenic activity of this new drug is effective against both brain and breast cancers.
Polycefin are designed to target cancer cells and deliver a variety of bound therapeutics to them. In vivo pre-clinical studies have shown evidence that existing cancer drugs could have increased efficacy and reduced side effects when attached to the Polycefin platform. Polycefinâ€™s have the ability to harbor various drugs at the same time making it a master delivery vehicle that can be customized for a particular tumor and potentially for an individual patient. Additionally, in vivo testing has shown efficacy against more than one type of cancer (breast and brain) suggesting that Polycefin may have application to a wide range of cancer types, therapeutics and diagnostics.
