11. Publications; Release of Information
11.1 Publications. Subject to the confidentiality provisions of Section 7 of this Agreement, the Parties shall have the right to publish or present the technical data, clinical data or results of any test or clinical trial relating to the Project, in any peer review journal, similar publication or oral presentation to the general public; provided that before making such publication or presentation, each Party shall provide a draft manuscript or abstract to each other Party for its review and comment at least thirty (30) days prior to the proposed date of publication or presentation. A Party may request the removal of any of its Confidential Information contained in the proposed publication or presentation, may request the deletion of its name which the Party, in its sole discretion, considers inappropriate, and, in the event a Party determines a need to delay the publication or presentation to protect or preserve exclusive Patent Rights, request such delay. The non–publishing Party(ies) may comment on the publication and the publishing Party shall consider these comments seriously and give good faith consideration to revising the publication where appropriate. The publishing Party shall delay the publication or presentation for up to ninety (90) days from the date of a non–publishing Party’s request as necessary to permit filings to preserve or protect Patent Rights. Scientists at Aridis and PVS will be expected to treat matters of authorship in a proper, collaborative spirit, giving credit where it is due and proceeding in a manner that fosters cooperation and communication, but will not do anything in this regard that will jeopardize the issuance of a valid patent. The provisions of this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
