What is an Evaluation Agreement?

An evaluation agreement is a standard legal document used to evaluate a company's performance. The evaluation can be conducted by one person or many people and will measure various aspects of the business.

For instance, an evaluation agreement might include measurements like revenue growth, profit margin, customer satisfaction ratings, and more. This post aims to discuss what an evaluation agreement entails and how it can benefit businesses looking for ways to improve their performance.

This Exhibit may be amended by mutual written agreement by both parties in the form of an amendment to the Agreement.

 

Evaluation Program Summary

Overview

 

For the development and commercialization of the [*], GSK seeks biomarkers and/or assays that enable the selection for or enrichment of likely responder patients. ACLARA has developed a series of biomarkers and assays that focus on the multiplex and multi-label analysis of signaling pathway proteins, including their expression, post-translational modifications and protein-protein interactions when analyzed in frozen and fixed tissue samples. Based on data and other information provided by ACLARA, GSK wishes to evaluate certain eTag assays to determine whether they will have the ability to stratify patients in this way. This Work Plan provides the details for an evaluation study.

 

Goals

 

To demonstrate that ACLARA’s eTag assays are capable of monitoring the protein expression levels, activation states and interaction states of selected protein targets involved in cell signaling in cancer cell lines with and without lapatinib ditosylate treatment.

 

To show that this analysis can differentiate [*].

 

To evaluate differences in the measured parameters [*]-treated vs untreated cells.

 

Focus of Study

 

Using the GSK Materials and ACLARA Materials outlined below, ACLARA will test snap-frozen cell lysate samples from [*], with different multiplexed eTag assays to evaluate the correlation of measurements of the different protein parameters and biomarkers with response of the cell lines to drug treatment.

 

At the conclusion of the study, a Program Report will be provided by ACLARA to GSK documenting the Evaluation Program Data in accordance with Section 2.4 of the Agreement.

 

Work Plan   Estimated completion time: [*] receipt of GSK Materials

Objectives

 

Perform eTag assays on the samples provided by GSK (each sample from a human cancer cell line stimulated with serum, and with or without [*] treatment at different time points; 80 samples total, tested in 7 point protein titrations, in triplicate) utilizing assays provided by ACLARA

 

Deliver Program Report to GSK documenting the Evaluation Program Data and an analysis of levels and changes in receptor complexes and protein–protein interactions. It is anticipated that GSK shall perform subsequent analysis of the data.

 

Description

 

Under the Evaluation Program, ACLARA will test the [*], and sent to ACLARA where they will be tested in 7-point protein titrations, in triplicate in the following 43 assays:

 

[*]

 

This analysis will total approximately [*]
