Whereas:

 

(A)                               The Parties have entered into a License Agreement as of February 25, 2015 (the “License Agreement”), under which Vernalis granted to Corvus an exclusive license under its intellectual property rights covering the Adenosine Receptor Antagonists ([***]) to Develop and Commercialise the Adenosine Receptor Antagonists ([***]) as a means of diagnosing, preventing or treating human diseases or conditions.

2.                                      The Parties agree that should Vernalis become aware of any additional pre-clinical data, samples and materials relating to V81444 being held at contract research organisations, these shall be transferred to Corvus on the same terms and conditions as set out herein.

 

3.                                      The Parties agree that neither the technology, information, reports, filings and other items which were transferred to Corvus under Clause 3.1(a) or 3.1(c) of the License Agreement, nor the Data transferred hereunder, [***].  If such other Party, within [***] after [***].

5.                                      The Parties may execute this Amendment in multiple counterparts, each of which shall be an original and all of which together shall constitute, together with the License Agreement, one legal instrument.

 

In witness whereof the Parties have executed this Amendment as of the date first written above:
