The patent rights in these inventions have been assigned to the Government of the United States of America. The territory of the prospective license may be worldwide, and the field of use may be limited to adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector mediated gene delivery of human aquaporin-1 (hAQP1) in ¨ Sjogren’s syndrome patients with associated xerostomia and/or xerophthalmia. DATES: Only written comments and/or applications for a license that are received by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, Office of Technology Transfer and Innovation Access on or before May 16, 2016 will be considered. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for a copy of the patent application(s), inquiries, comments and other materials relating to the contemplated license should be directed to: Sally Hu, Ph.D., M.B.A., Senior Licensing and Patenting Manager, Office of Technology Transfer and Innovation Access, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health, BLDG 1 DEM, RM667, 6701 Democracy Blvd., Bethesda, MD 20817; Telephone: (301) 594–2616; Facsimile: (301) 496–1005; Email: sally.hu@nih.gov. A signed confidential disclosure agreement may be required to receive copies of the patent application assuming it has not already been published under the publication rules of either the United States Patent and Trademark Office or the World Intellectual Property Organization. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This subject technology is directed to the methods of using AAV vectors to deliver the hAQP gene into a salivary gland or a lachrymal gland in patients who suffer ¨ ¨ from Sjogren’s syndrome. Sjogren’s syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease in which immune cells attack and destroy the glands that produce saliva and tears, resulting in progressive PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25683 dry mouth and dry eyes. In a mouse ¨ model of Sjogren’s syndrome, administration of hAQP–1 to salivary glands can restore salivary secretion and reduce inflammation in the glands.
