6.1.6 each Party will ensure that any Drug Product is supplied with appropriate instructions for use and neither Party will promote the Drug Product for any use or indication other than those specified in the Marketing Authorisation in the Territory or part thereof from time to time or make any medical or promotional claims regarding the Drug Product other than permitted by law; 

6.1.7 each Party will use commercially reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Drug Product is made available at price which is affordable and sustainable in its respective Territory and any part thereof; 

6.1.8 the Drug Product manufactured for Commercialisation in the Entasis Territory shall be reasonably distinguished from the Drug Product for Commercialisation in the DNDi Territory, as agreed by Parties;

6.2 DNDi will promptly notify Entasis in accordance with the Development Plan if DNDi, either itself or through an Affiliate or a Third Party on its behalf, improves, modifies, or enhances the formulation of the Drug Product;

6.3 It is acknowledged that Entasis has certain obligations to make milestone payments to Astra Zeneca AB (and/or its affiliates) in relation to the API (“Astra Zeneca”). The Parties agree that any such payments to Astra Zeneca will be paid in full by Entasis and that such costs shall not be transferred to DNDi (and/or any of its Sublicensee(s))whether directly or indirectly or applied to the costs of any supply of Drug Product for Commercialisation in the DNDi Territory.
