5.5.4
It is further provided that any disclosure of the content of Progress Reports by the Company shall be subject to the following conditions: (a) all recipients shall be informed in writing beforehand of the  confidential nature of the information being disclosed and shall have agreed in writing to obligations of confidentiality in favour of the Company no less onerous than those contained in this Clause 5 (but without any right of further disclosure) to keep such information confidential; and (b) only the content of the documents containing the relevant information which has been processed into a suitable format may be disclosed but not copies of the actual documents themselves.

in each case subject to the terms and conditions for such sub-licence described in Schedule 7A, on a royalty-free basis, and for the purpose of preparing for and carrying out (and having prepared or carried out for the Charity) the Clinical Trial. In addition the Company hereby grants to the Charity a non-exclusive, royalty free licence under the Company Intellectual Property (including the right to use Company Materials), subject to the terms and conditions for each sub-licence described in Schedule 7A, for the Charity and scientists funded by the Charity to adapt and use the Product Manufacturing Process and make and have made Products and Related Products for non-commercial research purposes, provided that such research will not include clinical research without the prior written consent of the Company on a case-by-case basis.  Such license under the Immunomic/JHU Licensed Patents shall include only rights relating to use of ***.
 
In the event the Charity reasonably determines that its Contributors require any additional sub-licence under any Third Party Licence in order to perform their activities in support of the Clinical Trial, at the Charity’s request the Company agrees to use its reasonable endeavours to obtain the necessary consents under the relevant Third Party Licences to enable the Charity to grant the additional sub-licences to the Contributors or if such consent is refused in any case or in the Company’s reasonable opinion is unlikely to be granted then, if it is so permitted under the relevant Third Party Licence, the Company agrees to directly sublicense the Contributors as appropriate.
 
During the term of this Agreement, the Company shall not be entitled to (and shall not authorise any of its Affiliates or any other third party to) conduct any clinical trials in respect of the Product or, save as the Parties may agree otherwise pursuant to Clause 6.2 below, any Related Product.

Confidential treatment has been requested for certain portions of this exhibit pursuant to a request for confidential treatment under Rule 24b-2 of the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Confidential materials omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential portions are marked: [***].

 
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above in this Clause 6.1, or elsewhere in this Agreement, the Company acknowledges, agrees and warrants that the Charity is entitled to lawfully sub-contract in accordance with Clause 3.3 above any of the work that is contemplated by this Agreement (including work that is preparatory to any such work) without requiring any further or other consents from the Company or any third party.
 
As regards the Intellectual Property Rights that have been licensed to the Charity under clauses 6.1.4, 6.1.6 and 6.1.7 above, the Parties acknowledge the consent letters set out in the table at the top of Schedule 7 that have been obtained from the relevant head licensors.  Without affecting the Charity’s rights above in this Clause 6.1:
 
 
(a)
if at any time the Charity wishes to additionally obtain a consent letter from the University of Western Ontario that provides freedom or greater freedom in favour of the Charity to sub-license the Intellectual Property Rights that have been licensed to the Charity under Clause 6.1.3, then upon being requested to do so, Asterias shall cooperate with the Charity and use its commercial reasonable endeavours to obtain such consent letter in the form reasonably requested by the Charity at the time; and
 
 
(b)
for clarity Asterias hereby represents and warrants to and for the benefit of the Charity that Asterias is entitled to grant direct sub-licences to Contributors (and any other third parties) under the  Intellectual Property Rights that have been licensed to the Charity under Clause 6.1.3 and that upon being requested to do so by the Charity at any time, Asterias shall promptly enter into such direct sub-licences with such Contributors or other third parties so as to enable the Charity to properly perform its obligations and enjoy its rights under the main body of this Agreement by means of selective sub-contracting and sub-licensing as the Charity may desire. The terms of such direct sub-licence shall be non-exclusive and free of charge and otherwise similar to the licence terms set out above in this Clause 6.1 avoiding (so far as is lawful) any restrictions or other terms that are of no relevance to the main purposes of the  sub-contract or sub-licence and excluding any right to further sub-license.
 
 
6.2
If at any time during the Clinical Trial the Company desires to commence a clinical study in respect of a Related Product, it shall give as much notice of this as practicable to CRT and the Charity and the Parties shall  endeavour to agree and enter into a separate agreement within ninety (90) days detailing the terms on which the desired clinical study may be commenced and carried out by the Company in respect of the Related Product. The Parties shall act in good faith to negotiate an agreement that facilitates clinical development of the Related Product while minimizing any potential negative impact on the ongoing Clinical Trial and commercial prospects for the Product.
 
 
6.3
The Company shall use commercially reasonable endeavours to continue to prosecute and maintain, at its own cost, all of the Company Patent Rights and to procure that where this is the responsibility of the licensor under a Third Party Licence, that the licensor similarly does so; subject to this Clause 6.3. If the Company intends to substantially narrow the scope of the claims of any patent or patent application within the Company Patent Rights it will first consult with CRT and take into good faith consideration any concerns or views expressed by CRT. If the Company elects not to prosecute or maintain any part of the Company Patent Rights, the Company shall notify CRT in writing within a reasonable period and no less than ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of any applicable time bars. After receipt of such notice, and if and to the extent permitted by the terms of the applicable Third Party Licence in the case of Company Patent Rights under a Third Party Licence, CRT may elect, before the expiry of any such time bars, by written notice to the Company, to take an assignment of any Company Patent Rights identified in such notice at CRT’s sole discretion and for consideration not exceeding one pound (£1). In the event that CRT elects to take such an assignment, the Company shall promptly transfer to CRT (or any person nominated by CRT) copies of any and all documents in the Company’s control relating to the filing, prosecution, maintenance, enforcement and defence of such Company Patent Rights. The Company shall not assign, charge, encumber or dispose of any interest in any of the Company Patent Rights in a manner that limits or impairs CRT’s rights under the licence of Company Patent Rights pursuant to this Agreement without CRT’s prior written consent or to or in favour of a Tobacco Party.

Schedule 3
Safety Information

A.
Cancer Research UK and Asterias Biotherapeutics Inc. have entered into a clinical trial agreement (the “Clinical Trial Agreement”) (of which this document is Schedule [3]) under which they agreed to collaborate in connection with a Phase [I/II] clinical trial of the Investigational Medicinal Product in  accordance with the Protocol.

B.
The procedure in this Schedule describes how safety information regarding the Investigational Medicinal Product (“IMP”) will be communicated as it becomes known.

1 DEFINITIONS

“Adverse Event” (or “AE”) means any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical trial subject administered a medicinal product, which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.

An AE can therefore be any unfavourable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding, for example), symptom or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product.

An AE includes but is not limited to:

· a clinically significant worsening of a pre-existing condition. This includes conditions which may resolve completely and then become abnormal again;
· an AE occurring from an overdose of an IMP, whether accidental or intentional; and
· an AE occurring as a result of a quality issue with a batch of IMP.

Other reportable events which must be treated as AEs include:

· pregnancy exposure to an IMP.  Any pregnancy occurring in a patient or a patient’s partner during treatment with an IMP or occurring within six months of the last dose of study drug administration, must be reported within the same timelines as a Serious Adverse Event (as defined below), even if the patient has been withdrawn from the clinical trial;
· overdose with or without an AE;

Schedule 5
No Fault Compensation Scheme

Preamble

The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry favours a simple and expeditious procedure in relation to the provision of compensation for injury caused by participation in clinical trials. The Association therefore recommends that a member company sponsoring a clinical trial should provide without legal commitment a written assurance to the investigator — and through him to the relevant research ethics committee — that the following Guidelines will be adhered to in the event of injury caused to a patient attributable to participation in the trial in question.
 
1
Basic Principles

1.1 Notwithstanding the absence of legal commitment, the company should pay compensation to patient-volunteers suffering bodily injury (including death) in accordance with these Guidelines.

1.2 Compensation should be paid when, on the balance of probabilities, the injury was attributable to the administration of a medicinal product under trial or any clinical intervention or procedure provided for by the protocol that would not have occurred but for the inclusion of the patient in the trial.

1.3 Compensation should be paid to a child injured in utero through the participation of the subject’s mother in a clinical trial as if the child were a patient-volunteer with the full benefit of these Guidelines.

1.4 Compensation should only be paid for the more serious injury of an enduring and disabling character (including exacerbation of an existing condition) and not for temporary pain or discomfort or less serious or curable complaints.

1.5 Where there is an adverse reaction to a medicinal product under trial and injury is caused by a procedure adopted to deal with that adverse reaction, compensation should be paid for such injury as if it were caused directly by the medicinal product under trial.

1.6 Neither the fact that the adverse reaction causing the injury was foreseeable or predictable, nor the fact that the patient has freely consented (whether in writing or otherwise) to participate in the trial should exclude a patient from consideration for compensation under these Guidelines, although compensation may be abated or excluded in the light of the factors described in paragraph 4.2 below.

1.7 For the avoidance of doubt, compensation should be paid regardless of whether the patient is able to prove that the company has been negligent in relation to research or development of the medicinal product under trial or that the product is defective and therefore, as the producer, the company is subject to strict liability in respect of injuries caused by it.
 
2
Type of Clinical Research Covered

2.1 These Guidelines apply to injury caused to patients involved in Phase II and Phase III trials, that is to say, patients under treatment and surveillance (usually in hospital) and suffering from the ailment which the medicinal product under trial is intended to treat but for which a product licence does not exist or does not authorise supply for administration under the conditions of the trial.

2.2 These Guidelines do not apply to injuries arising from studies in non-patient volunteers (Phase I), whether or not they are in hospital, for which separate Guidelines for compensation already exist.

Confidential treatment has been requested for certain portions of this exhibit pursuant to a request for confidential treatment under Rule 24b-2 of the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Confidential materials omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential portions are marked: [***].
 
2.3 These Guidelines do not apply to injury arising from clinical trials on marketed products (Phase IV) where a product licence exists authorising supply for administration under the conditions of the trial, except to the extent that the injury is caused to a patient as a direct result of procedures undertaken in accordance with the protocol (but not any product administered) to which the patient would not have been exposed had treatment been other than in the course of the trial.

2.4 These Guidelines do not apply to clinical trials which have not been initiated or directly sponsored by the company providing the product for research. Where trials of products are initiated independently by doctors under the appropriate Medicines Act 1968 exemptions, responsibility for the health and welfare of patients rests with the doctor alone (see also paragraph 5.2 below).

3
Limitations

3.1 No compensation should be paid for the failure of a medicinal product to have its intended effect or to provide any other benefit to the patient.

3.2 No compensation should be paid for injury caused by other licensed medicinal products administered to the patient for the purpose of comparison with the product under trial.

3.3 No compensation should be paid to patients receiving placebo in consideration of its failure to provide therapeutic benefit.

3.4 No compensation should be paid (or it should be abated as the case may be) to the extent that the injury has arisen:

 
3.4.1
through a significant departure from the agreed protocol;

3.4.2 through the wrongful act or default of a third party, including a doctor’s failure to deal adequately with an adverse reaction;

 
3.4.3
through contributory negligence by the patient.

4
Assessment of Compensation

4.1 The amount of compensation paid should be appropriate to the nature, severity and persistence of the injury and should in general terms be consistent with the quantum of damages commonly awarded for similar injuries by an English Court in cases where legal liability is admitted.

4.2 Compensation may be abated, or in certain circumstances excluded, in the light of the following factors (on which will depend the level of risk the patient can reasonably be expected to accept):

4.2.1 the seriousness of the disease being treated, the degree of probability that adverse reactions will occur and any warnings given;

4.2.2 the risks and benefits of established treatments relative to those known or suspected of the trial medicine.

This reflects the fact that flexibility is required given the particular patient’s circumstances. As an extreme example, there may be a patient suffering from a serious or life-threatening disease who is warned of a certain defined risk of adverse reaction. Participation in the trial is then based on an expectation that the benefit/risk ratio associated with participation may be better than that associated with alternative treatment. It is, therefore, reasonable that the patient accepts the high risk and should not expect compensation for the occurrence of the adverse reaction of which he or she was told.

4.3 In any case where the company concedes that a payment should be made to a patient but there exists a difference of opinion between company and patient as to the appropriate level of compensation, it is recommended that the company agrees to seek at its own cost (and make available to the patient) the opinion of a mutually acceptable independent expert, and that his opinion should be given substantial weight by the company in reaching its decision on the appropriate payment to be made.

5
Miscellaneous

5.1 Claims pursuant to the Guidelines should be made by the patient to the company, preferably via the investigator, setting Out details of the nature and background of the claim and, subject to the patient providing on request an authority for the company to review any medical records relevant to the claim, the company should consider the claim expeditiously.

5.2 The undertaking given by a company extends to injury arising (at whatever time) from all administrations, clinical interventions or procedures occurring during the course of the trial but not to treatment extended beyond the end of the trial at the instigation of the investigator. The use of unlicensed products beyond the trial period is wholly the responsibility of the treating doctor and in this regard attention is drawn to the advice provided to doctors in MAL 3Q2 concerning the desirability of doctors notifying their protection society of their use of unlicensed products.

5.3 The fact that a company has agreed to abide by these Guidelines in respect of a trial does not affect the right of a patient to pursue a legal remedy in respect of injury alleged to have been suffered as a result of participation. Nevertheless, patients will normally be asked to accept that any payment made under the Guidelines will be in full settlement of their claims.

5.4 A company sponsoring a trial should encourage the investigator to make clear to participating patients that the trial is being conducted subject to the ABPI Guidelines relating to compensation for injury arising in the course of clinical trials and have available copies of the Guidelines should they be requested.

2.9 The Company hereby represents and warrants that as at the date of this Agreement:
 
2.9.1 other than the Third Party Licences, it does not have an extant licence or right to acquire a licence for Intellectual Property Rights within the Field that has been or may be granted to it or an Affiliate of the Company by a third party; and
 
2.9.2 CRT has been provided with complete (other than as visibly redacted) and accurate copies of the Third Party Licences, including all variations that have been made to them.
 
2.10 The Company undertakes not to make any variations to the Third Party Licences without the prior written consent of CRT.

3. ASSISTANCE AND FURTHER ASSURANCE
 
3.1 The Company hereby agrees to promptly provide to CRT or its nominated patent agent all documents relating to the filing, prosecution and maintenance of the Company Foreground Patent Rights and, to the extent that it has the right to such documents under the relevant Third Party Licence, the Third Party Foreground Patent Rights licensed under the Exclusive Third Party Licences.
 
3.2 The Company agrees to assist CRT and any third party that CRT may nominate in understanding and using the Company Know-How, the Company Materials and the Know-How and Materials licensed under Third Party Licences and to assist CRT and any such third party in relation to any further development of the Product, Investigational Medicinal Product or any Related Product and any regulatory application in relation thereto (including without limitation and to the extent that the Company may lawfully do so by the provision of information that may be requested from time to time in relation to the origin, development, and distribution by the Company to any third parties of the Product).

CRT                          ***;
Company             ***.
 
4.2 In the event that any Gross Revenue is received by CRT as part of the consideration for the grant of rights which include rights other than those in respect of Company Intellectual Property or licensed under the Third Party Licences, CRT shall apportion the consideration as between on the one hand, the rights granted in respect of the Company Intellectual Property and, on the other, any other rights granted, in such manner as is fair and reasonable.
 
4.3 If CRT receives any non-monetary consideration in respect of the commercial exploitation of the Company Intellectual Property (such as company stocks and shares), (i) prior to entering into any agreement providing for the payment of non-monetary consideration, CRT shall obtain the express written consents of Third Party Licensors for such non-cash payments as required under the relevant Third Party Licences and (ii) such non-monetary consideration shall not form Gross Revenue until CRT has received cash proceeds from the disposal or other realisation of such consideration. CRT shall at its sole discretion determine the timing of and price for any such realisation. For the avoidance of doubt, any dividend or similar monetary consideration received in respect of such non-monetary consideration shall form Gross Revenue.

5. MANAGEMENT AND EXPLOITATION
 
5.1 The filing, prosecution, maintenance, enforcement and defence of any Company Foreground Intellectual Property and further development and commercial exploitation thereof shall be at the sole cost and discretion of CRT.

6. THIRD PARTY LICENCES
 
6.1 To the extent that the Company has such rights under the relevant Third Party Licence, the Company agrees that the right to control the filing, prosecution, maintenance, enforcement and defence of any Third Party Foreground Intellectual Property, or to procure that the relevant licensor(s) under the Third Party Licence(s) does so, shall be transferred to CRT. To the extent that the control of any such Third Party Foreground Intellectual Property is transferred to CRT it will comply with the patent management provisions of the relevant Third Party Licence as identified in Annex 6.

6.2 CRT will be responsible for paying to the Company any signing fee, royalty fee, milestone payment, sub-licence fee, annual payment or other similar fee payable directly as a result of developing, out-licensing, marketing or selling Products and/or Related Products in the Field by CRT or its sub-licensees pursuant to this Agreement that the Company is obliged to pay under the Third Party Licences solely as a result of the said activities by CRT or its sub-licensees.  Any such fees that relate to both activities under this Licence by CRT or its sub-licensees and to activities of or on behalf of the Company (whenever commenced) outside of the Field shall be subject to appropriate apportionment between CRT and the Company on a fair and equitable basis which the Parties shall agree at the time. The Company shall keep CRT informed in a timely manner of the Company’s activities that have a bearing on the rights and obligations of CRT under this clause. For the avoidance of doubt  (subject to CRT’s right to require apportionment of fees between CRT and the Company as mentioned above in this clause 6.2) CRT shall have responsibility under and in accordance with this Clause 6.2 for the Third Party Licence Costs but shall not have liability for any penalties, costs or charges that are payable under the relevant Third Party Licence as a result of any negligence or breach of contract by the Company.  CRT shall not be obliged to deal with the sub-licensors under the Third Party Licences directly, and provided that CRT has made the payments to the Company of the payments mentioned above in this Clause 6.2, CRT shall have no further liability and shall be indemnified by the Company in respect of any claim made by a sub-licensor regarding the same. CRT acknowledges that it has been provided with a redacted copy of the WARF License and unredacted copies of the other Third Party Licences, and is aware of the payment obligations thereunder.
 
CRT will notify the Company:

6.2.1 on becoming aware of the achievement of any milestone event that triggers Third Party Licence Costs; and
 
6.2.2 on receipt of sales data and royalty payments from a sub-licensee in respect of which royalty based Third Party Licence Costs are payable, and will provide the Company with a copy of the relevant sales data received from CRT’s sub-licensee to enable the Company to comply with its financial reporting obligations under the Third Party Licences.
 
6.3 CRT will pay to the Company the sums that CRT is obliged to pay to the Company pursuant to Clause 6.2 above in a timely manner so as to avoid the Company making late payment under the relevant Third Party Licence. Company will provide CRT with a copy of any invoice it receives for costs payable by CRT under any Third Party Licence, and CRT will make payment under any such properly due and payable invoices within thirty (30) days of receipt.
 
6.4 CRT will be responsible for fulfilling or obligating its sub-licensee(s) to fulfil any diligence and development reporting obligations under the Third Party Licences [as identified in Appendix 6].  CRT acknowledges that it has been provided with a redacted copy of the WARF License and unredacted copies of all other Third Party Licences, and is aware of the diligence and development reporting obligations thereunder.
 
6.5 Any payments or other contractual obligations of the Company owed to a third party that are not covered by Clauses 2.3, 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3 and 6.4 will remain the exclusive responsibility of the Company, whether or not connected to the rights granted to CRT under this Agreement.
 
6.6 The Company will as soon as reasonably possible (and in any event within seven (7) days) notify CRT if it becomes aware that it has breached the terms of any Third Party Licences or otherwise becomes aware of any acts or omissions which would give one or more of its licensors the right to terminate a Third Party Licence.
 
6.7 CRT will require as a term of any sub-licence of rights to commercialise Products or Related Products that the sub-licensee maintains levels of insurance coverage or a scheme of self insurance that is appropriate to cover the sub-licensees intended activities in respect of Products and/or Related Products.
 
6.8 CRT will endeavour to procure from any sub-licensee(s) to which it intends to grant rights to commercialise Products or Related Products indemnities in favour of the licensors under the Third Party Licences that are consistent with those provided by the Company. In the event that CRT is unable to procure such indemnities from a prospective sub-licensee and is not willing or able to provide them its self it will not enter into such sub-licence without the prior written agreement of the Company.

9.1 Subject to the remainder of this Clause 9, this Agreement shall come into force on the Effective Date and shall extend for so long as CRT has the potential to receive Gross Revenue.
 
9.2 In the event that CRT has not, within two (2) years of the Effective Date either (i) found a commercial partner that has commenced and is continuing diligent effort to develop and/or commercialize the Product or any Related Product; or (ii) initiated or is not continuing diligent further development of the Product or any Related Product using its own (or the Charity’s) resources then:
   
9.2.1 the rights granted to CRT to the Company Background Intellectual Property and the Third Party Background Intellectual Property will terminate and revert to the Company;
 
9.2.2 CRT’s obligations in respect of the Company Background Intellectual Property and the Third Party Background Intellectual Property, including those under Clauses 6.2 and 6.3, will terminate and revert to the Company;
 
9.2.3 the Company will have a renewed option (the “Second Option”) exercisable within twelve (12) months from the date of termination of CRT’s licence rights to the Company Background Intellectual Property and Third Party Background Intellectual Property (the “Second Option Period”) to enter into the Licence with a *** reduction to the financial consideration payable to CRT under clause 4 of the Licence.

9.2.6 if this Agreement terminates CRT shall, and shall require all of its sublicensees to, within thirty (30) days return to the Company or destroy (by a method specified by the Company) and at the Company’s cost and expense any remaining quantities of the Company Materials and/or Confidential Information of the Company in the possession or control of CRT and its sublicensees.
