Intrexon Corporation Key Developments

Intrexon Corporation and ZIOPHARM Oncology Announce Licensing Agreement with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Intrexon Corporation and ZIOPHARM Oncology announced a broad exclusive licensing agreement with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, including an exclusive sublicensing agreement through MD Anderson for intellectual property developed at the University of Minnesota for the development of non-viral adoptive cellular cancer immunotherapies. The licensed technologies arise from the laboratory of Laurence Cooper, M.D., Ph.D., professor of pediatrics at MD Anderson and Perry Hackett, Ph.D., professor within the College of Biological Sciences at Minnesota. The Cooper and Hackett laboratories have pioneered the design and clinical investigation of novel chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapies using non-viral gene integration platforms. MD Anderson has built on this technology to deliver patient-derived T cells, as well as innovative approaches to generating products for universal off-the-shelf applications. When combined with Intrexon’s technology suite and ZIOPHARM’s clinically tested RheoSwitch Therapeutic System® interleukin-12 modules, the resulting proprietary methods and technologies may help realize the promise of genetically modified CAR T cells by tightly controlling cell expansion and activation in the body, minimizing off-target effects and toxicity while maximizing therapeutic efficacy. Under the terms of the agreement, MD Anderson shall receive consideration of $100 million; $50 million from each Intrexon and ZIOPHARM, payable in shares of their respective common stock, as well as a commitment of $15 to $20 million annually over three years for researching and developing the technologies.
