05:48 EDTINOInovio broadens IP portfolio from UPenn
Inovio Pharmaceuticals has expanded its existing license agreement with the University of Pennsylvania, adding exclusive worldwide rights to technology and intellectual property for novel synthetic therapies against cancer, infectious diseases and new immune activators. Inovio has an ongoing collaborative research agreement with the university to support fundamental research in the area of DNA-based vaccines and immunotherapies. All newly licensed products are in preclinical development. These new pipeline candidates were developed using Inovio's SynCon design approach and were constructed and tested in preclinical animal models for their ability to generate potent antigen-specific T cell and antibody responses. Multiple patents have been filed and several manuscripts are being prepared for peer-reviewed journal publications. Overall, this amendment broadens and strengthens the patent protection around previously licensed oncology and infectious disease targets by in-licensing expanded patents covering candidate products for DNA based synthetic antibodies and those covering dengue fever, H7N9 influenza, additional HPV serotypes as well as certain other undisclosed cancer antigen targets.
