1.4“Field” shall mean the treatment or prophylaxis of a human or animal disease state or condition and shall exclude Phage Display.
1.5“Immunoglobulin” means any molecule that has an amino acid sequence by virtue of which it specifically interacts with an antigen and wherein any chains of the molecule contain a functionally operating region of an antibody variable region including, without limitation, any naturally occurring or recombinant form of such a molecule.
1.6“IND” shall mean an Investigational New Drug application, as defined in the U.S. Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and the regulations promulgated thereunder for initiating clinical trials in the United States, or any corresponding foreign application, registration or certification.

9.2Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement in the event the other party has materially breached or defaulted in the performance of any of its obligations hereunder, and such default has continued for sixty (60) days after written notice thereof was provided to the breaching party by the nonbreaching party. The parties hereby agree that a breach of Section 2.5 is considered to be a material breach of this Agreement. Any termination shall become effective at the end of such sixty (60) day period unless the breaching party has cured any such breach or default prior to the expiration of such period.
