The number of dose shipments is currently undetermined, however the Term (12 months) is considered adequate to support most, if not all material stored.by CTPL at the time of this agreement. This agreement allows for a seamless extension of this service if the Parties so agree.

 

  3. Continue to undertake MLR assays for [***] as documented in the April 2011 CTPL-Prima Master Services Agreement and the associated cross agreements with Prima’s designated CRO and USA and European manufacturing sites.

MLR runs can be undertaken singly or in batches of up to x3 patient material.

The timing window for individual MLR assays are determined by the recruitment timing and the clinical trial protocol. CT will, under Prima’s direction, attempt to perform all MLR runs in a cost effective manner.

While not fixed the following are the projected timing and quantities for MLR assays.

Mar’14 to July ‘14 with patient #’s as required and agreed by the Appointed Representatives. This agreement runs through to the extended Term ending in March 2015 and by negotiation the MLR testing could be continued beyond July’14 if required.
