4.   Possession And Commencement Date

Term Commencement Date").  Tenant agrees that in the event Landlord fails to
----------------------                                                      
tender possession of the Demised Premises on or before the Target Term
Commencement Date despite Landlord's use of commercially reasonable efforts to
do so (and not as a subterfuge for avoiding this Lease), Landlord shall not be
liable to Tenant for any loss or damage resulting therefrom, and this Lease
shall not be void or voidable except in the event that Landlord is unable, after
taking commercially reasonable efforts, to tender possession of the Demised
Premises to Tenant on or before the date which is one hundred twenty (120) days
after the Target Term Commencement Date, in which case either Landlord or Tenant
may elect in writing to terminate this Lease. Tenant shall promptly construct or
cause to be constructed the Tenant Improvements (as hereinafter defined) in
accordance with the terms and conditions of this Lease and the exhibits hereto,
including, without limitation, Exhibit "B" attached hereto (the "Work Letter").
                                                                 -----------    
Subject to such terms and conditions, Tenant shall be allowed to construct a
Class 10,000 clean room on the fourth floor of the Demised Premises.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, Tenant shall have
access to and the right to occupy the Demised Premises free of Basic Annual Rent
or Additional Rent from the Term Commencement Date until the Rent Commencement
Date, hereinafter defined.

     4.2   The "Term Commencement Date" shall be October 1, 1998.

     4.3   Access to and possession of areas necessary for utilities, services,
safety and operation of the Building and the Project are reserved to Landlord,
except to the extent otherwise expressly provided herein. When Landlord or
Landlord's representatives are accessing such areas, Landlord shall use
reasonable efforts to minimize any interference with Tenant's business, a
representative of Tenant may accompany Landlord, and Landlord shall comply with
the reasonable security requirements of Tenant.

     4.4   Tenant shall cause to be constructed the tenant improvements in the
Demised Premises (the "Tenant Improvements") pursuant to the Work Letter at a
                       -------------------

Three Hundred Fifty Dollars ($3,532,350.00) (based upon fifty dollars ($50.00)

which Additional Rent in amount not to exceed three percent (3%) of the Tenant
Improvement Allowance may be charged), cost of space planning, architect,

 
engineering and other related services, building permits and other planning and

Tenant Improvements will exceed the Tenant Improvement Allowance, then Tenant
shall immediately, and as a condition to Landlord's obligation to expend or
disburse any portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance, provide evidence to
Landlord of the availability of funds sufficient to pay such excess costs.
Tenant shall have until July 1, 2000 to expend the Tenant Improvement Allowance,
after which date Landlord's obligation to fund the Tenant Improvement Allowance
shall expire.  Landlord shall make reasonable progress payments from the Tenant
Improvement Allowance; provided, however, that Landlord receives full and
complete lien releases as Landlord makes such payments from all general
contractors and major subcontractors and major suppliers to the fullest extent
available at law.  Tenant shall be responsible in any event for ensuring that
the Tenant Improvements, when completed, are lien free.

     4.5   Intentionally Omitted.

     4.6   Landlord shall deliver the Demised Premises to Tenant on the Term
Commencement Date clean and free of debris. Landlord warrants to Tenant that the

Building or Project to the extent the same exceeds the costs of such goods
and/or services rendered by unaffiliated third parties on a competitive basis,
except for the Management Fee;

                   (r)  interest, principal, points and fees on debts or
amortization on any mortgage or mortgages or any other debt instrument
encumbering the Building or the Project (except as otherwise permitted herein);

                   (s)  Landlord's general corporate overhead and general and
administrative expenses, except for the Management Fee;

                   (t)  tax penalties incurred as a result of Landlord's
negligence, inability or unwillingness to make payments and/or to file any tax
or informational returns when due, except to the extent contributed to by
Tenant;

                   (u)  costs arising from the gross negligence or willful
misconduct or fault of other tenants or Landlord or its agents, representatives,
invitees or guests;

                   (v)  costs for sculpture, paintings or other objects of art;

                   (w)  costs (including in connection therewith all attorneys'
fees and costs of settlement judgments and payments in lieu thereof) arising
from claims, disputes or potential disputes in connection with potential or
actual claims, litigation or arbitrations pertaining to Landlord or the Building
or the Project, except to the extent relating to or regarding the Tenant or its
agents; and

                   (x)  costs associated with the operation of the business of
the partnership or entity which constitutes Landlord as the same are
distinguished from the costs of operation of the Building, including partnership
accounting and legal matters, costs of defending any lawsuits with any mortgagee
(except as the actions of Tenant may be in issue), costs of selling,
syndicating, financing, mortgaging or hypothecating any of Landlord's interest
in the Building, costs of any disputes between Landlord and its employees (if
any) not engaged in Building operation, disputes of Landlord with Building
management, or outside fees paid in connection with disputes with other tenants.

 
     7.2   Tenant shall pay to Landlord on the first day of each calendar month
of the Term, as Additional Rent, Landlord's estimate of Tenant's Pro Rata Share
of Building Operating Expenses and Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating
Expenses for such month.

           7.2.1   Within ninety (90) days after the conclusion of each calendar
year, (or such longer period as may be reasonably required) Landlord shall
furnish to Tenant a statement showing in reasonable detail the actual Operating
Expenses and Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Building Operating Expenses and Tenant's
Pro Rata Share of Project Operating Expenses for the previous calendar year.
Any additional sum due from Tenant to Landlord shall be immediately due and
payable within ten (10) days after any written request therefor.  If the amounts
paid by Tenant pursuant to Section 7.2 exceed Tenant's Pro Rata Share of
Building Operating Expenses or Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating
Expenses for the previous calendar year, Landlord shall, at Landlord's option,
either (i) credit the excess amount to the next succeeding installments of
estimated Additional Rent, or (ii) pay the excess to Tenant within thirty (30)
days after delivery of such statements.

           7.2.2   Any amount due under Section 7.2 for any period which is less
than a full month shall be prorated (based on a thirty (30) day month) for such
fractional month.

     7.3   Landlord's annual statement shall be final and binding upon Tenant
unless Tenant, within sixty (60) days after Tenant's receipt thereof, shall
contest any item therein by giving written notice to Landlord, specifying each
item contested and the reason therefor. If, during such sixty (60) day period,
Tenant reasonably and in good faith questions or contests the correctness of
Landlord's statement of Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Building Operating Expenses
or Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating Expenses, Landlord will provide
Tenant with access to Landlord's books and records and such information as
Landlord reasonably determines to be responsive to Tenant's questions.  In the
event that after Tenant's review of such information, Landlord and Tenant cannot
agree upon the amount of Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Building Operating Expenses
or Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating Expenses, then Tenant shall have
the right to have an independent public accounting firm selected from among the
ten (10) largest in the United States hired by Tenant (at Tenant's sole cost and
expense) and approved by Landlord (which approval shall not be unreasonably
withheld or delayed) audit and/or review such Landlord's books and records for
the year in question (the "Independent Review").  The results of any such
                           ------------------                            
Independent Review shall be binding on Landlord and Tenant.  If the Independent
Review shows that Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Building Operating Expenses or
Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating Expenses actually paid for the
calendar year in question exceeded Tenant's obligations for such calendar year,
Landlord shall at Landlord's option either (1) credit the excess amount to the
next succeeding installments of estimated Additional Rent or (2) pay the excess
to Tenant within thirty (30) days after delivery of such statement.  If the
Independent Review shows that Tenant's payments of Tenant's Pro Rata Share of
Building Operating Expenses or Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating
Expenses for such calendar year were less than Tenant's obligation for the
calendar year, Tenant shall pay the deficiency to the Landlord within thirty
(30) days after delivery of such statement.  If the Independent Review
determines that the total charged to Tenant in the annual statement exceeds the
correct total by more than seven and one-half percent (7.5%), then the costs
and expenses of the independent public accounting firm conducting the
Independent Review shall be paid by Landlord.

 
     7.4   Tenant shall not be responsible for Building Operating Expenses or
Project Operating Expenses attributable to the time period prior to the Rent
Commencement Date. The responsibility of Tenant for Tenant's Pro Rata Share of
Building Operating Expenses and Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating
Expenses shall continue to the latest of (i) the date of termination of the
Lease, (ii) the date Tenant has fully vacated the Demised Premises (including,
without limitation, the removal of all items required hereby to be removed and
the completion of all procedures necessary to fully release and terminate any
permits or licenses restricting the use of the Demised Premises in any manner),
or (iii) if Tenant's right to possession of the Demised Premises is terminated
due to the default of Tenant, the date of rental commencement of a replacement
tenant.

     7.5   Building Operating Expenses and Project Operating Expenses for the
calendar year in which Tenant's obligation to share therein commences and in the
calendar year in which such obligation ceases, shall be prorated on a basis
reasonably determined by Landlord. Expenses such as taxes, assessments and
insurance premiums which are incurred for an extended time period shall be
prorated based upon time periods to which applicable so that the amounts
attributed to the Demised Premises relate in a reasonable manner to the time
period wherein Tenant has an obligation to share in Building Operating Expenses
and Project Operating Expenses. Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the
contrary, if the Rent Commencement Date falls on a day other than the first day
of an insurance coverage period, tax fiscal year or other period to which an
Operating Expense is allocable or attributable, or if this Lease terminates on a
day other than the last day of an insurance coverage period, tax fiscal year or
other period to which an Operating Expense is allocable or attributable, then
the amount of the Operating Expenses payable by Tenant with respect to such
first or last partial insurance coverage period, tax fiscal year or other period
shall be prorated based on the ratio of the number of days during such insurance
coverage period, tax fiscal year or other period in which this Lease is in
effect to the total number of days in such insurance coverage period, tax fiscal
year or other period.

     7.6   Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, in the
event the Project is not one hundred percent (100%) occupied during any entire
year of the Term, an adjustment shall be made by Landlord in computing Tenant's
Pro Rata Share of Project Operating Expenses for such year so that Tenant's Pro
Rata Share of Project Operating Expenses shall be computed for such year as
though the Project had been one hundred percent (100%) occupied during such
entire year.  Landlord further agrees that since one of the purposes of
Operating Expenses and the gross up provision is to require Tenant to pay for
the costs attributable to the Demised Premises, (i) Landlord will not collect or
be entitled to collect Operating Expenses from all of its tenants in an amount
which is in excess of one hundred percent (100%) of the Operating Expenses
actually paid by Landlord in connection with the operation of the Building and
the Project, and (ii) Landlord shall make no profit from Landlord's collections
of Operating Expenses. All assessments and premiums which are not specifically
charged to Tenant because of what Tenant has done, which can be paid by Landlord
in installments, shall be paid by Landlord in the maximum number of installments
permitted by law and not included as Operating Expenses except in the year in
which the assessment or premium installment is actually paid; provided, however,
that if the prevailing practice in comparable buildings is to pay such
assessments or premiums on an earlier basis, and Landlord pays on such basis,
such assessments or premiums shall be included in Operating Expenses as paid by
Landlord.

 
     7.7  The parties agree that statements in this Lease to the effect that    
Landlord is to perform certain of its obligations hereunder at its own cost and
expense shall not be interpreted as excluding any cost from Building Operating
Expenses or Project Operating Expenses if such cost is an Operating Expense
pursuant to the terms of this Lease.

8.   Rentable Area
     -------------

     8.1  As used herein, the terms "Rentable Area" shall be calculated in
                                     -------------                        
accordance with the 1996 Standard Method for Measuring Floor Area in Office
Buildings as adopted by the Building Owners and Managers Association.

     8.2  The Rentable Area of the Building is generally determined by making
separate calculations of Rentable Area applicable to each floor within the
Building and totaling the Rentable Area of all floors within the Building.  The
Rentable Area of a floor is computed by measuring to the outside finished
surface of the permanent outer Building walls.  The full area calculated as
before set forth is included as Rentable Area without deduction for columns and
projections or vertical penetrations which are defined as stairs, elevator
shafts, flues, pipe shafts, vertical ducts, and the like and their enclosing
walls.

     8.3  The Rentable Area of the Project is the total of Rentable Area of all
buildings within the Project.

     8.4  Review of allocations of Rentable Areas as between tenants of the
Project may be made as frequently as in Landlord's opinion appears appropriate
in order to facilitate an equitable apportionment of Project Operating Expenses.
Such review shall be performed by a licensed architect and the allocations
certified as true and correct by such licensed architect and Tenant shall be
bound by such certifications.

9.   Security Deposit
     ----------------

     9.1  Tenant has deposited with Landlord the sum set forth in Section 2.1.7
(the "Security Deposit") which Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord as
      ----------------                                                      
security for the performance by Tenant of all of the terms, covenants, and
conditions of this Lease to be kept and performed by Tenant during the Term.  If
Tenant defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, including, but not
limited to, any provision relating to the payment of Rent, Landlord may (but
shall not be required to) use, apply or retain all or any part of the Security
Deposit for the payment of any Rent or any other sum in default, or to
compensate Landlord for any other loss or damage which Landlord may suffer by
reason of Tenant's default.  If any portion of the Security Deposit is so used
or applied, Tenant shall, within five (5) business days after Landlord's demand
therefor, deposit cash with Landlord in an amount sufficient to restore the
Security Deposit to its original amount, and Tenant's failure to do so shall be
a material breach of this Lease.  Landlord shall not be required to keep the
Security Deposit separate from its general fund, and Tenant shall not be
entitled to any interest on the Security Deposit.

     9.2  Intentionally Omitted.

 
     9.3  In the event of bankruptcy or other debtor-creditor proceedings
against Tenant, the Security Deposit shall be deemed to be applied first to the
payment of Rent and other charges due Landlord for all periods prior to the
filing of such proceedings.

     9.4  Landlord may deliver the Security Deposit to any purchaser of
Landlord's interest in the Demised Premises, provided such purchaser assumes in
full in writing Landlord's obligations hereunder, and thereupon Landlord shall
be discharged from any further liability with respect to the Security Deposit.
This provision shall also apply to any subsequent transfers.

     9.5  If Tenant shall fully perform every provision of this Lease to be
performed by Tenant, the Security Deposit, or any balance thereof, shall be
returned to Tenant (or, at Landlord's option, to the last assignee of Tenant's
interest hereunder) within ninety (90) days after the expiration or earlier
termination of this Lease.

10.  Use
     ---

     10.1 Tenant shall use the Demised Premises for the purpose set forth in
Section 2.1.8 and shall not use the Demised Premises, or permit or suffer the
Demised Premises to be used, for any other purpose without the prior written
consent of Landlord which may be withheld in Landlord's reasonable discretion;
provided, however, that if Tenant desires to reduce the laboratory space at the
Demised Premises from that initially approved by Landlord pursuant to this Lease
and the Work Letter, then Tenant must first provide Landlord with reasonable
financial assurances (such as an increased security deposit or acceptable letter
of credit) that Tenant will restore the Demised Premises and Tenant Improvements
at the end of the Term to the same condition as Landlord initially approved
pursuant to this Lease and the Work Letter, and Tenant must, in fact, perform
such restoration prior to the end of the Term.

     10.2 Tenant shall not use or occupy the Demised Premises in violation of
any federal, state and local laws and regulations, zoning ordinances, or the
certificate of occupancy issued for the Building, and shall, upon five (5) days'
written notice from Landlord, discontinue any use of the Demised Premises which
is declared or claimed by any governmental authority having jurisdiction to be a
violation of law, regulation or zoning ordinance or of such certificate of
occupancy, or which violates a law, regulation or zoning ordinance or the
certificate of occupancy.  Tenant shall comply with any order or directive of
any governmental authority having jurisdiction which shall, by reason of the
nature of Tenant's particular use or occupancy of the Demised Premises, impose
any duty upon Tenant or Landlord with respect to the Demised Premises or with
respect to Tenant's particular use or occupation thereof.  Subject to Tenant's
obligations elsewhere under this Lease, Tenant shall not be responsible for
compliance with any laws, codes, rules, regulations, ordinances or other
governmental directives where such compliance is not related to Tenant's
particular use and occupancy of the Demised Premises, and Tenant shall be
obligated to make only those alterations in the Demised Premises that are
required by reason of Tenant's particular use of the Demised Premises which are
not generally applicable to the Project or other tenants in the Project.

     10.3 Tenant shall not do or permit to be done anything which will
invalidate or increase the cost of any fire, environmental, extended coverage or
any other insurance policy covering the Building and Project and shall comply
with all rules, orders, regulations, and 

 
requirements of the insurers of the Building and Project and Tenant shall
promptly upon demand reimburse Landlord for any additional premium charged for
such policy to the extent caused by reason of Tenant's failure to comply with
the provisions of this Section 10.3.

     10.4 No additional locks or bolts of any kind shall be placed upon any of
the doors or windows by Tenant nor shall any changes be made in existing locks
or the mechanism thereof without the prior written consent of Landlord, which
consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.  Tenant must, upon termination of
this Lease return to Landlord all keys to offices and restrooms, either
furnished to, or otherwise procured by Tenant.  In the event any key so
furnished is lost, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the cost of replacing the same
or of changing the lock or locks opened by such lost key if Landlord shall deem
it necessary to make such change.

     10.5 No awnings or other projection shall be attached to any outside wall
of the Building.  No curtains, blinds, shades or screens shall be attached to or
hung in, or used in connection with, any window or door of the Demised Premises
without Landlord's consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  Neither
the interior nor exterior of any windows shall be coated or otherwise
sunscreened without the express written consent of Landlord, nor shall any
bottles, parcels, or other articles be placed on the windowsills.  No equipment,
furniture or other items of personal property shall be placed on any exterior
balcony without the express written consent of Landlord.

     10.6 Tenant shall have the right to affix signage displaying Tenant's
corporate name and/or logo (the "Building Signage") on the Building as permitted
                                 ----------------                               
by code at Tenant's sole cost and expense with the prior written consent of
Landlord, which consent is not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  No sign,
advertisement, or notice other than the Building Signage shall be exhibited,
painted or affixed by Tenant on any exterior part of the Demised Premises or the
Building without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not
be unreasonably withheld.

     10.7 Tenant shall cause any office equipment or machinery to be installed
in the Demised Premises so as to reasonably prevent sounds or vibrations
therefrom from extending into the Project Common Areas.  Further, no equipment
weighing five hundred (500) pounds, or greater, shall be placed upon the Demised
Premises without advance notice to and approval by Landlord.  Placement of such
equipment, if approved by Landlord, shall be only at a location designed to
carry the weight of such equipment.

     10.8 Tenant shall not do or permit anything to be done in or about the
Demised Premises which shall in any way obstruct or interfere with the rights of
other tenants or occupants of the Project, or injure or annoy them, or use or
allow the Demised Premises to be used for immoral, unlawful or objectionable
purpose, nor shall Tenant knowingly cause, maintain or permit any nuisance or
waste in, on, or about the Demised Premises, Building or Project.

     10.9 Notwithstanding any other provision herein to the contrary, Tenant
shall be responsible for all liabilities, costs and expense arising out of or in
connection with the compliance of the Demised Premises with the Americans With
Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. (S) 12101, et seq.  (together with regulations
promulgated pursuant thereto, "ADA") and Tenant 
                               ---                                              

 
shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless from and against any loss, cost,
liability or expense (including reasonable attorneys fees and disbursements)
arising out of any failure of the Demised Premises to comply with the ADA;
provided, however, that Landlord shall be responsible for the costs, if any, as
of the Term Commencement Date, of bringing into compliance with the ADA: (i) the
restrooms on the fourth floor of the Demised Premises; and (ii) only those other
items identified in the Mahlum & Nordfors McKinley Gordon Architectural Report
attached hereto as Exhibit "H" (the "Architectural Report") as possibly not
                                     --------------------      
being in compliance with the ADA, and then only to the extent required by
governmental authority.

11.  Brokers
     -------

     11.1 Landlord and Tenant each represent and warrant to the other party that
it has had no dealings with any real estate broker or agent in connection with
the negotiation of this Lease other than Kidder, Mathews & Segner Inc.
("Kidder") and CB Commercial Real Estate Group ("CB", and together with Kidder,
  ------                                         --                            
"Brokers"), as has been disclosed in writing to Landlord and Tenant and that
 -------                                                                    
neither Landlord nor Tenant knows of any other real estate broker or agent who
is or might be entitled to a commission in connection with this Lease.  Each of
the parties acknowledges that Kidder represents only Landlord and CB represents
only Tenant in connection with this transaction.

     11.2 Landlord and Tenant each hereby indemnifies the other party and shall
defend, hold and save such party harmless from and against any and all claims
for any commissions or fees in connection with this Lease made by any broker or
finder having worked, or claiming to have worked, on behalf of the indemnifying
party, other than Brokers.

     11.3 Landlord and Tenant each represent and warrant to the other that no
broker or agent has made any representation or warranty relied upon by it in its
decision to enter into this Lease other than as contained in this Lease.

     11.4 Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the employment of brokers by
Landlord is for the purpose of solicitation of offers of lease from prospective
tenants and no authority is granted to any broker to furnish any representation
(written or oral) or warranty from Landlord unless expressly contained within
this Lease.  Landlord in executing this Lease does so in reliance upon Tenant's
representations and warranties contained within this Article 11 hereof.

12.  Holding Over
     ------------

     12.1 If, with Landlord's express written consent, Tenant holds possession
of all or any part of the Demised Premises after the expiration or earlier
termination of the Term, Tenant shall become a tenant from month-to-month upon
the date of such expiration or earlier termination, and in such case Tenant
shall continue to pay Basic Annual Rent in the amount payable upon the date of
the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, and all other provisions,
representations, covenants and agreements contained herein, other than with
respect to the Term and any extensions thereof shall remain in full force and
effect.

     12.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenant remains in possession of the
Demised Premises after the expiration or earlier termination of the Term without
the express written consent of Landlord, Tenant shall become a tenant at
sufferance upon the terms of this Lease 

 
except that the monthly rental shall be equal to one hundred fifty percent
(150%) of the Basic Annual Rent and Additional Rent in effect during the last
thirty (30) days of the Term. Tenant shall be responsible for all damages
suffered by Landlord resulting from or occasioned by Tenant's holding over.

     12.3 Acceptance by Landlord of Rent after such expiration or earlier
termination shall not result in a renewal or reinstatement of this Lease.

     12.4 The foregoing provisions of this Article 12 are in addition to and do
not affect Landlord's right to re-entry or any other rights of Landlord
hereunder or as otherwise provided by law.

13.  Taxes On Tenant's Property
     --------------------------

     13.1 Tenant shall pay, prior to delinquency, any and all taxes levied
against any personal property or trade fixtures placed by Tenant in or about the
Demised Premises.

     13.2 If any such taxes on Tenant's personal property or trade fixtures are
levied against Landlord or Landlord's property or, if the assessed valuation of
the Building is increased by the inclusion therein of a value attributable to
Tenant's personal property or trade fixtures, and if Landlord, after written
notice to Tenant, pays the taxes based upon such increase in the assessed
valued, then Tenant shall upon demand repay to Landlord the taxes so levied
against Landlord.

14.  Condition Of Demised Premises
     -----------------------------

     Tenant acknowledges that neither Landlord nor any agent of Landlord has
made any representation or warranty with respect to the condition of the Demised
Premises or the Building or Project, or with respect to the suitability for the
conduct of Tenant's business.  The taking of possession of the Demised Premises
by Tenant shall, except as otherwise agreed in writing by Landlord and Tenant
and subject to any representations and warranties of Landlord or Tenant
contained herein, conclusively establish that the Demised Premises and Building
were at such time in good, sanitary and satisfactory condition and repair and in
substantially the same condition as described in the environmental report
attached hereto as Exhibit "C" as such report may be updated pursuant to the
                   -----------                                              
next two sentences (the "Environmental Report").  The Environmental Report shall
                         --------------------                                   
be updated with respect to the fourth floor of the Building at Landlord's sole
cost and expense within sixty (60) days of the current tenant's vacation of such
space, and may be updated prior to the Term Commencement Date with respect to
such other portions of the Building to be  occupied by Tenant as Tenant in its
sole election and at its sole cost and expense may determine.  Landlord and
Tenant shall, in a reasonably prompt manner, mutually select a qualified
environmental consultant to perform such update(s).

15.  Common Areas And Parking Facilities
     -----------------------------------

     15.1 Tenant shall have the non-exclusive right, in common with others, to
use the Project Common Areas, subject to such reasonable and nondiscriminatory
rules and regulations as are hereafter promulgated by Landlord in its
discretion.  Landlord agrees that the rules and regulations shall not be
changed, revised or enforced in any unreasonable way by Landlord, nor modified
or added to by Landlord in such a way as to unreasonably interfere with Tenant's

 
permitted use of the Demised Premises set forth in this Lease.  Landlord shall
not enforce the rules and regulations in a manner which shall unreasonably
interfere with the Permitted Use of the Demised Premises as set forth in Section
2.1.8 herein.

     15.2 As an appurtenance to the Demised Premises, fifty (50) of the covered
parking stalls located on the Project shall be reserved to Tenant, such stalls
to be selected by Landlord.  Tenant shall pay Landlord a monthly rate of ninety
dollars ($90) per stall (the "Parking Rate"). The Parking Rate may be adjusted
                              ------------                                    
as determined by Landlord at any time after the first year of the Term, not to
exceed an increase of five percent (5%) in any calendar year.  Tenant
acknowledges that Landlord has previously assigned certain parking stalls to
another tenant of the Project, and that Tenant has the right to use only its
assigned parking stalls.

     15.3 Tenant agrees not to unreasonably overburden the parking facilities
and agrees to cooperate with Landlord and other tenants in the use of parking
facilities.  Landlord reserves the right to determine that parking facilities
are becoming overcrowded and to limit Tenant's use thereof.  Upon such
determination, Landlord may reasonably allocate parking spaces among Tenant and
other tenants.  In the alternative, if Landlord determines that Tenant's
customers, clients, or invitees appear to be using more than the number of
parking spaces that would otherwise be attributable to a reasonable number of
parking spaces for Tenant's use, Landlord may require Tenant and its employees
to obtain parking outside the Project for such unreasonable excess uses.
However, nothing in this Section 15.3 is intended to create an affirmative duty
on Landlord's part to monitor parking.

     15.4 Landlord reserves the right to modify the Project Common Areas
including the right to add or remove exterior and interior landscaping. Landlord
agrees that the Project Common Areas shall not include any excess unimproved
land development, but shall only include improved areas available to serve a
completed building, where the area of the completed building is used to
determine Tenant's Pro Rata Share of Project Operating Expenses.

16.  Utilities And Services
     ----------------------

     16.1 Tenant shall pay for all water (including the cost to service, repair
and replace reverse osmosis, deionized and other treated water), gas, heat,
light, power, telephone and other utilities supplied to the Demised Premises,
together with any fees, surcharges and taxes thereon.  All such utilities shall
be separately metered to Tenant as of the Term Commencement Date.

     16.2 Landlord shall not be liable for, nor shall any eviction of Tenant
result from, the failure to furnish any such utility or service whether or not
such failure is caused by accident, breakage, repairs, strikes, lockouts or
other labor disturbances or labor disputes of any character, governmental
regulation, moratorium or other governmental action, inability despite the
exercise of reasonable diligence or by any other cause except the willful
misconduct or the gross negligence of Landlord.  In the event of such failure,
Tenant shall not be entitled to any abatement or reduction of Rent, nor be
relieved from the operation of any covenant or agreement of this Lease.

 
     16.3 Tenant shall pay directly to the applicable utility or service
provider, prior to delinquency, for any separately metered utilities and
services which may be furnished to Tenant or the Demised Premises during the
Term.

     16.4 Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which
shall not be unreasonably withheld, use any device in the Demised Premises,
including, but without limitation, data processing machines, which will in any
way increase the amount of ventilation, air exchange, gas, steam, electricity or
water beyond that for which the Demised Premises are reasonably designed as of
the Term Commencement Date.

     16.5 Provided that Landlord shall furnish Tenant with notice whenever
reasonably possible, Landlord reserves the right to stop service of the
elevator, plumbing, ventilation, air conditioning and electric systems, when
necessary, by reason of accident or emergency or for repairs, alterations or
improvements, in the good faith judgment of Landlord desirable or necessary to
be made, until said repairs, alterations or improvements shall have been
completed, and Landlord shall further have no responsibility or liability for
failure to supply elevator facilities, plumbing, ventilation, air conditioning
or electric service, when prevented from doing so by strike or accident, or by
laws, rules, order, ordinances, directions, regulations or requirements of any
federal, state, country or municipal authority or failure to deliver gas, oil or
other suitable fuel supply or inability by exercise of reasonable diligence to
obtain gas, oil or other suitable fuel.  It is expressly understood and agreed
that any covenants on Landlord's part to furnish any service pursuant to any of
the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions or agreements of this Lease, or to
perform any act or thing for the benefit of Tenant, shall not be deemed breached
if Landlord is unable to furnish or perform the same by virtue of a strike or
labor trouble or any other cause whatsoever.  Notwithstanding the foregoing,
Landlord, in exercising its rights hereunder, shall use commercially reasonable
efforts to minimize any disruption to or interference with the conduct of
Tenant's business.

17.  Alterations
     -----------

     17.1 Other than the Tenant Improvements, Tenant shall make no alterations,
additions or improvements in or to the Demised Premises without Landlord's prior
written consent, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld (provided,
                                                                    -------- 
however, that in the event any proposed alteration, addition or improvement
-------                                                                    
affects (i) any structural portions of the Building including exterior walls,
roof, foundation and core of the Building, (ii) the exterior of the Building or
(iii) any Building systems, including elevator, plumbing, air conditioning,
heating electrical, security, life safety and power, then Landlord may withhold
its consent with respect thereto in its sole and absolute discretion), and then
only by architects, contractors, suppliers or mechanics approved by Landlord in
Landlord's reasonable discretion.  In seeking Landlord's approval, Tenant shall
provide Landlord, at least fourteen (14) days in advance of any proposed
construction, with plans, specifications, bid proposals, work contracts and such
other information concerning the nature and cost of the alterations as may be
reasonably requested by Landlord.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to
the contrary in this Lease: (i) Tenant shall not be required to obtain
Landlord's consent to any non-structural alteration, addition or improvement
which costs less than $20,000 per project, each project to include on-going and
related work; (ii) if Landlord's consent is required and Landlord does not
notify Tenant in writing of its approval or disapproval within fifteen (15) days
following Tenant's request for approval, then Landlord shall be deemed 

 
to have disapproved the proposed alteration in question; (iii) all personal
property of Tenant installed in the Demised Premises at Tenant's expense shall
at all times remain Tenant's personal property, and Tenant shall be entitled to
all insurance and condemnation proceeds expressly awarded for Tenant's personal
property. Tenant shall not be required to remove any Tenant Improvements at the
expiration or earlier termination of this Lease nor any other alterations,
additions or improvements unless at the time that Landlord consented thereto,
Landlord notified Tenant that such removal would be required.

     17.2 Tenant agrees that there shall be no construction of partitions or
other obstructions which might interfere with free access to mechanical
installation or service facilities of the Building or interfere with the moving
of Landlord's equipment to or from the enclosures containing said installations
or facilities.

     17.3 Landlord and Tenant each agree that all work by either Landlord or
Tenant shall be accomplished in such a manner as to permit any fire sprinkler
system and fire water supply lines to remain fully operable at all times.

     17.4 All such work shall be done at such times and in such manner as
Landlord may from time to time reasonably designate.  Tenant covenants and
agrees that all work done by Tenant shall be performed in compliance with all
laws, rules, orders, ordinances, directions, regulations, and requirements of
all governmental agencies, offices, departments, bureaus and boards having
jurisdiction, and in full compliance with the rules, orders, directions,
regulations, and requirements of any applicable fire rating bureau.  Tenant
shall provide Landlord with "as-built" plans showing any change in the Demised
Premises.

     17.5 Before commencing any work, Tenant shall give Landlord at least
fifteen (15) days prior written notice of the proposed commencement of such work
and shall, if the cost of such alteration exceeds $50,000 and Landlord so
requests, secure at Tenant's own cost and expense a completion and lien
indemnity bond reasonably satisfactory to Landlord for said work.

     17.6 All alterations, attached equipment, decorations, fixtures, trade
fixtures, additions and improvements, subject to Section 17.8, attached to or
built into the Demised Premises and paid for by Landlord by virtue of Landlord
providing the Tenant Improvement Allowance or otherwise, including (without
limiting the generality of the foregoing) all floor and wallcovering, built-in
cabinet work and paneling, sinks and related plumbing fixtures, exterior venting
fume hoods and walk-in freezers and refrigerators, clean rooms, climatized
rooms, ductwork, conduits, electrical panels and circuits, shall become the
property of Landlord upon the expiration or earlier termination of the term of
this Lease (the "Landlord Personal Property"), and shall remain upon and be
                 --------------------------                                
surrendered with the Demised Premises as a part thereof, and if paid for by
Tenant, such items may be removed by Tenant if agreed to by Landlord prior to
installation of such items; provided, however, that Tenant must restore any
damage caused by or occasioned as a result of such removal.  Landlord may at any
time elect to cause Tenant to remove any of the aforementioned items from the
Demised Premises upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, and,
if Landlord so elects, Tenant shall remove such alterations, attached equipment,
decorations, fixtures, trade fixtures, additions and improvements upon the
expiration or earlier termination of this Lease and restore any damage caused by
or occasioned as a result of such removal; provided, however, that prior to the
construction or attachment of any such property, 

 
Landlord shall advise Tenant in writing if such removal will be necessary upon
the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease if Tenant timely seeks such
advice from Landlord. Any property left at the Demised Premises upon the end of
the Term shall become the property of the Landlord. Tenant further agrees and
acknowledges that the Landlord Personal Property (as further described in
Exhibit "E" attached hereto and incorporated herein) is being provided to Tenant
-----------                
for Tenant's use during the Term of this Lease at no charge, without obligation
on the part of Landlord to maintain, repair or replace the same, and as an
accommodation to Tenant without representations or warranties of any kind and
that no portion of Rent is attributable to the use of the Landlord Personal
Property. Tenant shall return the Landlord Personal Property to Landlord at the
end of the Term of this Lease in the working condition in which it was received,
subject to reasonable wear and tear and casualty.

     17.7  Tenant shall repair any damage to the Demised Premises caused by
Tenant's  removal of any property from the Demised Premises.  During any such
restoration period, Tenant shall pay Rent to Landlord as provided herein as if
said space were otherwise occupied by Tenant.

     17.8  Except as to those items for which Tenant obtained Landlord's written
consent to remove, all business and trade fixtures, built-in machinery,
equipment, furniture and cabinets, together with all additions and accessories
thereto, installed in and upon the Demised Premises shall be and remain the
property of Landlord and shall not be moved by Tenant at any time during the
Term.  If Tenant shall fail to remove all of its effects from the Demised
Premises prior to expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, then Landlord
may, at its option and with notice to Tenant, remove the same in any manner that
Landlord shall choose, and store said effects without liability to Tenant for
loss thereof or damage thereto, and Tenant agrees to pay Landlord upon demand
any expenses incurred to such removal and storage or Landlord may, at its
option, without notice, sell said property or any of the same, at private sale
and without legal process, for such price as Landlord may obtain and apply the
proceeds of such sale against any amounts due under this Lease from Tenant to
Landlord and against any expenses incident to the removal, storage and sale of
said personal property.

     17.9  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article 17 to the
contrary, in no event may Tenant remove any improvement from the Demised
Premises for which Landlord contributed payment, including, without limitation,
the Tenant Improvements made pursuant to the Work Letter without Landlord's
prior written consent, which may be withheld in Landlord's sole discretion.

     17.10 Tenant shall pay to Landlord as Additional Rent an amount equal to
two percent (2%) of the cost to Tenant of all charges incurred by Tenant or its
contractors or agents in connection with any alterations, additions or
improvements to the Demised Premises, which Additional Rent shall not exceed
$10,000 per project. For purposes of payment of such sum, Tenant shall submit to
Landlord copies of all bills, invoices, and statements covering the costs of
such charges, which will be accompanied by payment to Landlord of the percentage
fee set forth above. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for any extra expense
incurred by Landlord by reason of faulty work done by Tenant or its contractors,
or by reason of delays caused by such work, or by reason of inadequate cleanup.

 
18.  Repairs And Maintenance
     -----------------------

     18.1 Landlord shall perform Capital Repairs and shall repair and maintain
the Project Common Areas, including, without limitation, repair and maintenance
of landscaping, parking facilities, driveways, walkways, lighting, utilities,
snow removal, irrigation and storm water management systems (and the full or
amortized cost thereof allocated in accordance with the other terms and
conditions of this Lease, as applicable, shall be included as a part of
Operating Expenses), unless such Capital Repairs or maintenance or repairs are
required in whole or in part because of any act, neglect, fault of or omissions
of any duty by Tenant, its agents, servants, employees, contractors, guests or
invitees, in which case Tenant shall pay to Landlord the cost of such Capital
Repairs or maintenance and repairs to the extent such costs are incurred as a
result of any act, neglect, fault of or omission of any duty by Tenant, its
agents, servants, employees, contractors, guests or invitees and are not
reimbursed by insurance.  For Capital Repairs with an estimated cost of greater
than one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000), Landlord shall obtain three bids
for the repair and provide copies thereof to Tenant.  Tenant shall have the
right to approve or disapprove, in its reasonable discretion, Landlord's
selection of a contractor to perform the Capital Repairs.

     18.2 Except for services of Landlord, if any, required by Section 18.1,
Tenant shall at Tenant's sole cost and expense keep the Demised Premises and
every part thereof in good condition and repair, damage thereto from ordinary
wear and tear and loss due to condemnation or casualty not occasioned by Tenant
or Tenant's agents, representatives or guests excepted.  Tenant shall, upon the
expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, surrender the Demised Premises
to Landlord in as good as condition as when received, ordinary wear and tear
excepted.  Other than as specifically set forth in the Work Letter, Landlord
shall have no obligation to alter, remodel, improve, repair, decorate or paint
the Demised Premises or any part thereof.

     18.3 Landlord shall not be liable for any failure to make any repairs or to
perform any maintenance which is an obligation of Landlord unless such failure
shall persist for an unreasonable time after written notice of the need of such
repairs or maintenance is given to Landlord by Tenant.  Tenant waives the rights
under any applicable law, statute or ordinance now or hereafter in effect to
make repairs at Landlord's expense.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the
contrary, if Landlord fails to timely perform its maintenance and repair
obligations hereunder, and as a consequence, Tenant's use of the Demised
Premises is substantially impaired, Tenant shall have the right, upon twenty
(20) days advance written notice to Landlord, to cause such repair or
maintenance to be performed at Tenant's expense.

     18.4 Repairs under this Article 18 which are obligations of Landlord are
subject to allocation among Tenant and other tenants as Operating Expenses.

     18.5 This Article 18 relates to repairs and maintenance arising in ordinary
course of operation of the Building, the Project and any related facilities.  In
the event of fire, earthquake, flood, vandalism, war, or similar cause of damage
or destruction, this Article 18 shall not be applicable and the provisions of
Article 22 shall apply and control.

 
19.  Liens
     -----

     19.1  Subject to the immediately succeeding sentence, Tenant shall keep the
Demised Premises, the Building, the Project and the real property upon which the
Building and the Project are situated free from any liens arising out of work
performed, materials furnished or obligations incurred by Tenant. Tenant further
covenants and agrees that any mechanic's lien filed against the Demised Premises
or against the Building or the Project for work claimed to have been done for,
or materials claimed to have been furnished to Tenant, will be discharged by
Tenant, by bond or otherwise, within ten (10) days after the filing thereof, at
the sole cost and expense of Tenant.

     19.2  Should Tenant fail to discharge any lien of the nature described in
Section 19.1, Landlord may at Landlord's election, after notice to Tenant, pay
such claim or post a bond or otherwise provide security to eliminate the lien as
a claim against title and the cost thereof shall be immediately due from Tenant
as Additional Rent.

     19.3  In the event Tenant shall lease or finance the acquisition of office
equipment, furnishings, or other personal property of a removable nature
utilized by Tenant in the operation of Tenant's business, Tenant warrants that
any Uniform Commercial Code Financing Statement executed by Tenant will upon its
face or by exhibit thereto indicate that such Financing Statement is applicable
only to removable personal property of Tenant located within the Demised
Premises. In no event shall the address of the Building be furnished on the
statement without qualifying language as to applicability of the lien only to
removable personal property, located in an identified suite held by Tenant.
Should any holder of a Financing Statement executed by Tenant record or place of
record a Financing Statement which appears to constitute a lien against any
interest of Landlord or against equipment which may be located other than within
the Demised Premises, Tenant shall within ten (10) days after filing such
Financing Statement (i) cause a copy of the Security Agreement or other
documents to which Financing Statement pertains to be furnished to Landlord to
facilitate Landlord's being in a position to show such lien is not applicable to
Landlord's interest, and (ii) cause Tenant's lender to amend any documents of
record so as to clarify that such lien is not applicable to any interest of
Landlord in the Building or the Project.

           19.3.1  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Landlord
waives any and all right, title and interest Landlord now has, or hereafter may
have, whether statutory or otherwise, to Tenant's books and records and personal
property not attached or affixed to the Demised Premises (the "Collateral").
                                                               ----------    
Tenant acknowledges that the Collateral shall not include any of Landlord's
personal property and Landlord acknowledges that Landlord has no lien, right,
claim, interest or title in or to the Collateral. Landlord further agrees that
Tenant shall have the right, at its discretion, to mortgage, pledge, hypothecate
or grant a security interest in the Collateral as security for its obligations
under any equipment lease or other financing arrangement related to the conduct
of Tenant's business at the Demised Premises. The Collateral shall not become
the property of Landlord or a part of the realty and may be removed by Tenant at
any time and from time to time during the entire term of this Lease. Upon
request of Tenant or its assignees or any subtenant, Landlord shall execute and
deliver any reasonable real estate consent or waiver forms submitted by any
vendors, equipment lessors, chattel mortgagees or lenders of Tenant setting
forth that Landlord waives, in favor of the vendor, equipment lessor,

 
chattel mortgagee or lender any superior lien, claim, interest or other right in
the specified Collateral. Such Collateral may be removed at any reasonable time
upon default under the terms of such chattel mortgage or other similar
documents, free and clear of any claim or lien of Landlord. Tenant shall
promptly repair any damage caused by the removal of such property, whether
effected by Tenant or Tenant's vendors, chattel mortgagees or equipment lessors.

20.  Indemnification And Exculpation
     -------------------------------

     20.1  Tenant hereby indemnifies and agrees to defend and save Landlord
harmless from and against any and all demands, claims, liabilities, losses,
costs, expenses, actions, causes of action, damages or judgments, and all
reasonable expenses incurred in investigating or resisting the same (including,
without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, charges and disbursements), for
injury or death to person or injury to property occurring within or about the
Demised Premises or the Project, arising directly or indirectly out of Tenant's,
its employees, agents or guests use or occupancy of the Demised Premises or the
Project or a breach or default by Tenant in the performance of any of its
obligations hereunder, unless caused solely by the willful act or gross
negligence of the Landlord.

     20.2  Landlord hereby indemnifies and agrees to defend and save Tenant
harmless from and against any and all demands, claims, liabilities, losses,
costs, expenses, actions, causes of action, damages or judgments, and all
reasonable expenses incurred in investigating or resisting the same (including,
without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, charges and disbursements), for
injury or death to person or injury to property occurring within or about the
Demised Premises or the Project, arising directly or indirectly out of breach by
Landlord in the performance of any of its obligations hereunder, unless caused
solely by the willful act or negligence of Tenant.

     20.3  Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant and Tenant assumes all risk of
damage to personal property or scientific research, including loss of records
kept within the Demised Premises if the cause of such damage is of a nature
which, if Tenant had elected to maintain fire and theft insurance with extended
coverage and business records endorsement available on a commercially reasonable
basis, would be a loss subject to settlement by the insurance carrier,
including, but not limited to, damage or losses caused by fire, electrical
malfunctions, gas explosion, and water damage of any type, including, but not
limited to, broken water lines, malfunction of fire sprinkler system, roof
leakage or stoppages of lines unless and except if such loss is due to the
willful misconduct of Landlord after an unreasonable period of time following
the written notice by Tenant of need for a repair which Landlord is responsible
to make. Tenant further waives any claim for injury to Tenant's business or loss
of income relating to any such damage or destruction of personal property
including any loss of records.

     20.4  Landlord shall not be liable for any damages arising from any act,
omission or neglect of any other tenant in the Building or the Project or of any
other third party.

     20.5  Security devices and services, if any, while intended to deter crime
may not in given instances prevent theft or other criminal acts. Tenant
acknowledges and agrees that Landlord shall not be liable for injuries or losses
caused by criminal acts of third parties and the risk that any security device
or service may malfunction or otherwise be circumvented by a

 
criminal is assumed by Tenant. Tenant shall at Tenant's cost obtain insurance
coverage to the extent Tenant desires protection against such criminal acts.

21.  Insurance - Waiver Of Subrogation
     ---------------------------------

     21.1  Landlord, as part of Operating Expenses, shall carry insurance upon
the Building, in an amount equal to full replacement cost (exclusive of the
costs of excavation, foundations, and footings, and without reference to
depreciation taken by Landlord upon its books or tax returns) or such greater
amount of insurance as Landlord's mortgage lender requires Landlord to maintain,
providing protection against any peril generally included within the
classification "Fire and Extended Coverage" together with insurance against
sprinkler damage (if applicable), vandalism and malicious mischief. Landlord,
subject to availability thereof and, as part of Operating Expenses, shall
further insure as Landlord deems appropriate coverage against flood,
environmental hazard and earthquake, loss or failure of building equipment,
rental loss during the period of repair or rebuild, workmen's compensation
insurance and fidelity bonds for employees employed to perform services.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord may, but shall not be deemed required
to, provide insurance as to any improvements installed by Tenant or which are in
addition to the standard improvements customarily furnished by Landlord without
regard to whether or not such are made a part of the Building.

     21.2  Landlord, as part of Operating Expenses, shall further carry
commercial general insurance with a single loss limit of not less than Five
Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00) for death or bodily injury, or property damage
with respect to the Project.

     21.3  Tenant at its own cost shall procure and continue in effect from the
Rent Commencement Date and continuing throughout the Term (and occupancy by
Tenant, if any, after the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease)
comprehensive commercial general insurance with limits of not less than Five
Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00) per occurrence for death or bodily injury and
not less than Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00) for property damage with
respect to the Demised Property.

     21.4  The aforesaid insurance required of Tenant shall name Landlord, its
officers, employees and agents, as an additional insured. Said insurance shall
be with companies having a policyholder rating of not less than A+ and financial
category rating of at least Class IX in "Best's Insurance Guide." Tenant shall
obtain for Landlord from the insurance companies or cause the insurance
companies to furnish certificates of coverage to Landlord. No such policy shall
be cancelable or subject to reduction of coverage or other modification or
cancellation except after thirty (30) days prior written notice to Landlord from
the insurer. All such policies shall be written as primary policies, not
contributing with and not in excess of the coverage which Landlord may carry.
Tenant's policy may be a "blanket policy" which specifically provides that the
amount of insurance shall not be prejudiced by other losses covered by the
policy. Tenant shall, at least twenty (20) days prior to the expiration of such
policies, furnish Landlord with renewals or binders. Tenant agrees that if
Tenant does not take out and maintain such insurance, Landlord may (but shall
not be required to) after notice to Tenant procure said insurance on Tenant's
behalf and at its cost to be paid as Additional Rent.

 
     21.5  Tenant assumes the risk of damage to any fixtures, goods, inventory,
merchandise, equipment, and leasehold improvements, and Landlord shall not be
liable for injury to Tenant's business or any loss of income therefrom relative
to such damage all as more particularly heretofore set forth within this Lease,
except to the extent arising from or in connection with Landlord's willful
misconduct. Tenant at Tenant's cost shall carry such insurance as Tenant desires
for Tenant's protection with respect to personal property of Tenant or business
interruption.

     21.6  In each instance where insurance is to name Landlord as additional
insured, Tenant shall upon written request of Landlord also designate and
furnish certificates so evidencing Landlord as additional insured to (i) any
lender of Landlord holding a security interest in the Building or real property
upon which the Building is situated, and (ii) any management company retained by
Landlord to manage the Building or the Project.

     21.7  Landlord and Tenant each hereby release, relieve and waive any and
all rights of recovery against the other or against the officers, directors,
employees, agents, and representatives of the other, on account of loss or
damage arising out of, incident to or occasioned to such waiving party or its
property or the property of others under its control to the extent that such
loss or damage is insured against under any fire and extended coverage insurance
policy which either party may have in force at the time of such loss or damage
and whether due to the negligence of Landlord or Tenant or their respective
agents, employees, contractors and/or invitees; provided, however, that such
releases, relief and waivers shall be limited to the extent of the net insurance
proceeds actually paid to Landlord by the relevant insurance carriers. Such
waivers shall continue as long as their respective insurers so permit. Any
termination of such a waiver shall be by written notice of circumstances as
hereinafter set forth. Landlord and Tenant upon obtaining the policies of
insurance required or permitted under this Lease shall give notice to the
insurance carrier or carriers that the foregoing mutual waiver of subrogation is
contained in this Lease. If such policies shall not be obtainable with such
waiver or shall be so obtainable only at a premium over that chargeable without
such waiver, the party seeking such policy shall notify the other thereof, and
the latter shall have ten (10) days thereafter to either (i) procure such
insurance with companies reasonably satisfactory to the other party or (ii)
agree to pay such additional premium (in the Tenant's case, in the proportion
which the area of the Demised Premises bears to the insured area). If neither
(i) nor (ii) are done, this Section 21.7 shall have no effect during such time
as such policies shall not be obtainable or the party in whose favor a waiver of
subrogation is desired refuses to pay the additional premium. If such policies
shall at any time be unobtainable, but shall be subsequently obtainable, neither
party shall be subsequently liable for a failure to obtain such insurance until
a reasonable time after notification thereof by the other party. If the release
of either Landlord or Tenant, as set forth in the first sentence of this Section
21.7 shall contravene any law with respect to exculpatory agreements, the
liability of the party in question shall be deemed not released but shall be
secondary to the other's insurer.

     21.8  Landlord may require insurance policy limits to be raised to conform
with requirements of Landlord's lender and/or to bring coverage limits to levels
then being required of new tenants within the Project.

 
22.  Damage Or Destruction
     ---------------------

     22.1  In the event of a partial destruction of the Building by fire or
other perils covered by extended coverage insurance but not exceeding thirty-
three percent (33%) of the full insurable value thereof, where the damage
thereto is such that the Building may be repaired, reconstructed or restored
within a period of twelve (12) months from the date of the happening of such
casualty and Landlord will receive insurance proceeds sufficient to cover the
cost of such repairs (except for any deductible amount provided by Landlord's
policy, which deductible amount if paid by Landlord shall be an Operating
Expense), Landlord shall, at its expense, commence and proceed diligently with
the work of repair, reconstruction and restoration and this Lease shall continue
in full force and effect.

     22.2  In the event of any damage to or destruction of the Building other
than as provided in Section 22.1, either Landlord or Tenant may elect to
terminate this Lease as of the date of destruction

     22.3  If either Landlord or Tenant desire to terminate this Lease pursuant
to Section 22.1, it shall give written notice to the other of its election to
terminate this Lease within the sixty (60) day period following the date of
damage or destruction. Failure to give such notice shall be deemed an election
to continue this Lease in full force and effect.

     22.4  Upon any termination of this Lease under any of the provisions of
this Article 22, the parties shall be released thereby without further
obligation to the other from the date possession of the Demised Premises is
surrendered to the Landlord except for items which have theretofore occurred.

     22.5  In the event of repair, reconstruction and restoration as herein
provided, the rental provided to be paid under this Lease shall be abated
proportionately based on the extent to which Tenant's use of the Demised
Premises is impaired during the period from the date of destruction until
repair, reconstruction or restoration is substantially complete, unless Landlord
provides Tenant with other comparable space during the period of repair, which
in Tenant's reasonable opinion is suitable for the temporary conduct of Tenant's
business.

     22.6  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article
22, should Landlord be delayed or prevented from completing the repair or
restoration of the damage to the Demised Premises after the occurrence of such
damage or destruction by reason of acts of God or war, governmental
restrictions, inability to procure the necessary labor or materials, strikes, or
other uses beyond the reasonable control of Landlord, the time for Landlord to
commence or complete repairs shall be extended, provided, at the election of
Landlord or Tenant, Landlord shall be relieved of its obligation to make such
repairs or restoration and Tenant shall be released from its obligations under
this Lease and each shall have the right to terminate this Lease as of the end
of sixteen (16) months from date of destruction, if repairs required to provide
Tenant use of the Demised Premises are not then substantially complete.

     22.7  If Landlord is obligated to or elects to repair or restore as herein
provided, Landlord shall be obligated to make repairs or restoration only of
those portions of the Building and the Demised Premises which were originally
provided at Landlord's expense; the repair and

 
restoration of items not provided at Landlord's expense shall be the obligation
of Tenant. In the event Tenant elected to upgrade certain improvements from the
standard normally provided by Landlord, Landlord shall, upon the need for
replacement due to an insured loss, provide only the standard Landlord
improvements unless Tenant shall elect to again upgrade and pay any additional
cost of such upgrades, except to the extent insurance proceeds, if received, are
adequate to provide such upgrades, in addition to providing for basic
reconstruction and standard improvements.

     22.8  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article
22, Landlord shall not have any obligation whatsoever to repair, reconstruct or
restore the Demised Premises if insurance proceeds are not available or
sufficient therefor, or when the damage resulting from any casualty covered
under this Article 22 occurs during the last thirty-six (36) months of the Term,
unless Landlord provides Tenant with written notice of its intention not to
repair, reconstruct or restore the Demised Premises and within thirty (30) days
thereafter, Tenant irrevocably and unconditionally its Extension Right (as
hereinafter defined) pursuant to Article 42.

23.  Eminent Domain
     --------------

     23.1  In the event the whole of the Demised Premises, or such part thereof
as shall substantially interfere with the Tenant's use and occupancy thereof,
shall be taken for any public or quasi-public purpose by any lawful power or
authority by exercise of the right of appropriation, condemnation or eminent
domain, or sold to prevent such taking, Tenant or Landlord may terminate this
Lease effective as of the date possession is required to be surrendered to said
authority.

     23.2  In the event of a partial taking of the Building, the Project or of
drives, walkways, and parking areas serving the Building or the Project for any
public or quasi-public purpose by any lawful power or authority by exercise of
right of appropriation, condemnation, or eminent domain, or sold to prevent such
taking, then without regard as to whether any portion of the Demised Premises
occupied by Tenant was so taken, Landlord may elect to terminate this Lease as
of such taking if such taking is, in the sole opinion of Landlord, of a material
nature such as to make it uneconomical to continue use of the unappropriated
portion for purposes of office rentals or laboratory space.

     23.3  Tenant shall be entitled to any award which is specifically awarded
as compensation for the taking of Tenant's personal property, which was
installed at Tenant's expense and for costs of Tenant moving to a new location.
Except as before set forth, any award for such taking shall belong to Landlord.
Nothing herein shall be deemed or construed to prevent Tenant from prosecuting
in any condemnation proceedings a separate claim for the value of any personal
property in the Demised Premises belonging to Tenant or for loss of Tenant's
business by reason of such condemnation.

     23.4  If, upon any taking of the nature described in this Article 23, this
Lease continues in effect, the Landlord shall promptly proceed to restore the
Demised Premises, Building and the Project to substantially their same condition
prior to such partial taking. To the extent such restoration is not feasible, as
determined by Landlord in its reasonable discretion, the Rent shall

 
be abated proportionately based upon the extent to which Tenant's use of the
Demised Premises has decreased on the basis of the percentage of the rental
value of the Demised Premises after such taking and the rental value of the
Demised Premises prior to such taking.

24.  Defaults And Remedies
     ---------------------

     24.1  Late payment by Tenant to Landlord of Rent and other sums due will
cause Landlord to incur costs not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amount
of which will be extremely difficult and impracticable to ascertain. Such costs
include, but are not limited to, processing and accounting charges and late
charges which may be imposed on Landlord by the terms of any mortgage or trust
deed covering the Demised Premises. Therefore, if any installment of Rent due
from Tenant is not received by Landlord within five (5) days after the date such
payment is due, Tenant shall pay to Landlord an additional sum of six percent
(6%) of the overdue Rent as a late charge. The parties agree that this late
charge represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs that Landlord will
incur by reason of late payment by Tenant. In addition to the late charge, Rent
not paid when due shall bear interest from the 5/th/ day after date due until
paid at the lesser of (i) twelve percent (12%) per annum or (ii) the maximum
rate permitted by law.

     24.2  No payment by Tenant or receipt by Landlord of a lesser amount than
the Rent payment herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than on account
of the Rent, nor shall any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter
accompanying any check or payment as Rent be deemed an accord and satisfaction,
and Landlord may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord's
right to recover the balance of such Rent or pursue any other remedy provided.
If at any time a dispute shall arise as to any amount or sum of money to be paid
by Tenant to Landlord, Tenant shall have the right to make payment "under
protest" and such payment shall not be regarded as a voluntary payment, and
there shall survive the right on the part of Tenant to institute suit for
recovery of the payment paid under protest.

     24.3  If Tenant fails to pay any sum of money required to be paid by it
hereunder, or shall fail to perform any other act on its part to be performed
hereunder, Landlord may (but with notice to Tenant), without waiving or
releasing Tenant from any obligations of Tenant, but shall not be obligated to,
make such payment or perform such act. All sums so paid or incurred by Landlord,
together with interest thereon, from the date such sums were paid or incurred,
at the annual rate equal to twelve percent (12%) per annum or highest rate
permitted by law, whichever is less, shall be payable to Landlord on demand as
Additional Rent.

     24.4  The occurrence of any one or more of the following events shall
constitute a "Default" hereunder by Tenant:
              -------                      

           24.4.1  The abandonment or vacation of the Demised Premises by
Tenant;

           24.4.2  The failure by Tenant to timely make any payment of Rent or
cure any other monetary default, where such failure continues for five (5)
business days after notice from Landlord of such delinquency;

           24.4.3  The failure by Tenant to observe or perform any obligation or
covenant contained herein (other than described in Section 24.4.1 and 24.4.2) to
be performed by Tenant,

 
where such failure shall continue for a period of ten (10) business days after
written notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant. Such notice shall be in lieu of,
and not in addition to, any notice required under any applicable law, code or
statute; provided that if the nature of Tenant's default is such that it
reasonably requires more than ten (10) business days to cure, then Tenant shall
not be deemed to be in default if Tenant shall commence such cure within said
ten (10) business day period and thereafter diligently prosecute the same to
completion, provided, however, that such cure must in any event be completed
            --------  -------
within one hundred twenty (120) days from the date of written notice or it shall
be a default hereunder;

           24.4.4  Tenant makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors;

           24.4.5  A receiver, trustee or custodian is appointed to, or does,
take title, possession or control of all, or substantially all, of Tenant's
assets;

           24.4.6  Tenant files a voluntary petition under the Bankruptcy Code
(or any similar law) or an order for relief is entered against Tenant pursuant
to a voluntary or involuntary proceeding commenced under any chapter of the
Bankruptcy Code;

           24.4.7  Any involuntary petition if filed against the Tenant under
any chapter of the Bankruptcy Code and is not dismissed within ninety (90) days;
or

           24.4.8  Tenant's interest in this Lease is attached, executed upon,
or otherwise judicially seized and such action is not released within ninety
(90) days of the action.

Notices given under this Section 24.4 shall specify the alleged default and
shall demand that Tenant perform the provisions of this Lease or pay the Rent
that is in arrears, as the case may be, within the applicable period of time, or
quit the Demised Premises. No such notice shall be deemed a forfeiture or a
termination of this Lease unless Landlord elects otherwise in such notice.

     24.5  In the event of a Default by Tenant, and at any time thereafter, with
or without notice or demand and without limiting Landlord in the exercise of any
right or remedy which Landlord may have, Landlord shall be entitled to terminate
Tenant's right to possession of the Demised Premises by any lawful means, in
which Tenant shall immediately surrender possession of the Demised Premises to
Landlord. In such event, Landlord shall have the right, after notice to Tenant,
to re-enter and remove all persons and property, and such property may be
removed and stored in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of, and for
the account of Tenant, all without service of notice or resort to legal process
and without being deemed guilty of trespass, or becoming liable for any loss or
damage which may be occasioned thereby. In the event that Landlord shall elect
to so terminate Tenant's right to possession of the Demised Premises, then
Landlord shall be entitled to recover from Tenant all damages incurred by
Landlord by reason of Tenant's default, including:

           24.5.1  The worth at the time of award of any unpaid Rent which had
been earned at the time of such termination; plus

 
           24.5.2  The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the
unpaid Rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of
award exceeds that portion of such rental loss which Tenant proves could have
been reasonably avoided; plus

           24.5.3  The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the
unpaid Rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds the
amount of such rental loss which Tenant proves could have been reasonably
avoided; plus

           24.5.4  any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the
detriment proximately caused by Tenant's failure to perform its obligation under
this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result
therefrom, including, but not limited to, the cost of restoring the Demised
Premises to the condition required under the terms of this Lease; plus

           24.5.5  At the Landlord's election, such other amounts in addition to
or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by applicable
law.

As used in Sections 24.5.1 and 24.5.2 above, "worth at the time of award" shall
be computed by allowing interest at the rate specified in Section 24.1. As used
in Section 24.5.3 above, the "worth at the time of the award" shall be computed
by taking the present value of such amount, by using the discount rate of the
Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of the award plus two (2)
percentage points.

     24.6  If Landlord does not elect to terminate Tenant's right to possession
of the Demised Premises as provided in this Article 24, then Landlord may, from
time to time, recover all Rent as it becomes due under this Lease. At any time
thereafter, Landlord may elect to terminate Tenant's right to possession of the
Demised Premises and to recover damage to which Landlord is entitled.

     24.7  In the event Landlord elects to terminate Tenant's right to
possession of the Demised Premises and relet the Demised Premises, it may
execute any new lease in its own name. Tenant hereunder shall have no right or
authority whatsoever to collect any Rent from such tenant. The proceeds of any
such reletting shall be applied as follows:

           First, to the payment of any indebtedness other than Rent due
           -----                                                        
     hereunder from Tenant to Landlord, including, but not limited to, storage
     charges or brokerage commissions owing from Tenant to Landlord as the
     result of such reletting;

           Second, to the payment of the costs and expenses of reletting the
           ------                                                           
     Demised Premises, including alterations and repairs which Landlord deems
     reasonably necessary and advisable and reasonable attorneys' fees, charges
     and other third-party disbursements incurred by Landlord in connection with
     the retaking of the Demised Premises and any reletting;

           Third, to the payment of Rent and other charges due and unpaid
           -----                                                         
     hereunder; and

           Fourth, to the payment of future Rent and other damages payable by
           ------                                                            
     Tenant under this Lease.

 
     24.8  All rights, options, and remedies of Landlord contained in this Lease
shall be construed and held to be nonexclusive and cumulative. Landlord shall
have the right to pursue any one or all of such remedies or any other remedy or
relief which may be provided by law, whether or not stated in this Lease. No
waiver of any default of Tenant hereunder shall be implied from any acceptance
by Landlord of any Rent or other payments due hereunder or any omission by
Landlord to take any action on account of such default if such default persists
or is repeated, and no express waiver shall affect defaults other than as
specified in said waiver.

     24.9  Termination of this Lease or Landlord's re-entry and termination of
Tenant's right to possession of the Demised Premises by Landlord shall not
relieve Tenant from any liability to Landlord which has theretofore accrued or
shall arise based upon events which occurred prior to the last to occur of (i)
the date of termination of Tenant's right to possession or (ii) the date
possession of Demised Premises is surrendered.

     24.10 Landlord shall not be in default unless Landlord fails to perform
obligations required of Landlord within a reasonable time, but in no event shall
such failure to continue be for more than thirty (30) days after written notice
by Tenant specifying wherein Landlord has failed to perform such obligation;
provided, however, that if the nature of Landlord's obligation is such that more
--------  -------                                                               
than thirty (30) days are required for performance, then Landlord shall not be
in default if Landlord commences performance within such thirty (30) day period
and thereafter diligently prosecutes the same to completion.

     24.11 In the event of any default on the part of Landlord, Tenant will give
notice by registered or certified mail to any beneficiary of a deed of trust or
mortgagee of a mortgage covering the Demised Premises and to any landlord of any
lease of any building in which the Demised Premises is located whose address
shall have been furnished, and Tenant shall offer such beneficiary, mortgagee
and/or landlord a reasonable opportunity to cure the default, including time to
obtain possession of the Building by power of sale or a judicial action if such
should prove necessary to effect a cure, provided the Landlord shall have
furnished to Tenant in writing the names and addresses of all such persons who
are to receive such notices.

25.  Assignment Or Subletting
     ------------------------

     25.1  Except as hereinafter provided, Tenant shall not, either voluntarily
or by operation of law, directly or indirectly, sell, hypothecate, assign,
pledge, encumber or otherwise transfer this Lease or the Demised Premises or any
part thereof, or permit or suffer the Demised Premises or any part thereof to be
used or occupied as work space, storage space, mailing privileges, concession or
otherwise by anyone other than Tenant or Tenant's employees, without the prior
written consent of Landlord in each instance, which consent may be withheld in
Landlord's reasonable discretion.

     25.2  Intentionally Omitted.

     25.3  Intentionally Omitted.

     25.4  Intentionally Omitted.

 
     25.5    Tenant shall have the right to sublease any portion of the Demised
Premises with Landlord's prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld
or delayed.  In the event Tenant desires to assign, hypothecate or otherwise
transfer this Lease or sublet the Demised Premises, then at least thirty (30)
days, but not more than ninety (90) days, prior to the date when Tenant desires
the assignment or sublease to be effective (the "Assignment Date"), Tenant shall
                                                 ---------------                
give Landlord a notice (the "Assignment Notice") containing information
                             -----------------                         
(including references) concerning the character of the proposed assignee or
sublessee, the Assignment Date, any ownership or commercial relationship between
Tenant and the proposed assignee or sublessee, and the consideration and all
other material terms and conditions of the proposed assignment or sublease along
with such other information as Landlord may reasonably require, all in such
detail as Landlord shall reasonably require.  Tenant shall also reimburse
Landlord for reasonable attorneys fees and other costs or overhead expenses
incurred by Landlord in reviewing Tenants request for such assignment.

     25.6    Landlord in making its determination as to whether consent should
be given to a proposed assignment or sublease, may give consideration to the
financial strength of such successor (notwithstanding the assignor remaining
liable for Tenant's performance) and any change in use which such successor
proposes to make in use of Demised Premises. In no event shall Landlord be
deemed to be unreasonable for declining to consent to transfer to a successor of
poor reputation, lacking financial qualifications, or seeking change in use.

     25.7    As conditions precedent to Landlord approving a request by Tenant
to Tenant's transfer of rights or subletting of the Demises Premises, Landlord
may require any or all of the following:

             25.7.1  Tenant shall remain fully liable under this Lease during
the unexpired Term;

             25.7.2  Tenant shall provide Landlord with evidence reasonably
satisfactory to Landlord that the value of Landlord's interest under this Lease
will not thereby be diminished or reduced. Such evidence shall include, but need
not be limited to, evidence respecting the relevant business experience and
financial responsibility and status of the third party concerned;

             25.7.3  Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for Landlord's actual costs
and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, charges
and disbursements incurred in connection with the review, processing and
documentation of such request;

             25.7.4  If Tenant's transfer of rights or subletting of the Demised
Premises provides for the receipt by, on behalf or on account of Tenant of any
consideration of any kind whatsoever (including, but not by way of limitation, a
premium rental for a sublease or lump sum payment for an assignment) in excess
of the rental and other charges due Landlord under this Lease, Tenant shall pay
one-half of all of said excess to Landlord, provided that Tenant shall be
entitled to deduct therefrom the following costs incurred by Tenant to effect
such transfer or sublease: brokerage fees, advertising costs, cost of tenant
improvements completed within ninety (90) days after the commencement of the
transfer or sublease, reasonable attorneys' fees and rent concessions and
inducements. If said consideration consists of cash paid to Tenant, said payment
to Landlord shall be made upon receipt by Tenant of said cash payment;

 
           25.7.5  Written agreement from any third party concerned that in the
event Landlord gives such third party notice that Tenant is in default, or in
breach of any terms or conditions under this Lease, such third party shall
thereafter make all payments otherwise due Tenant directly to Landlord, which
payments will be received by Landlord without any liability on Landlord except
to credit such payment against those due under this Lease, and any such third
party shall agree to attorn to Landlord or its successors and assigns should
this Lease be terminated for any reason; provided, however, that in no event
                                         --------  -------
shall Landlord or its successors or assigns be obligated to accept such
attornment;

           25.7.6  Any such transfer and consent shall be effected on forms
reasonably approved by Landlord as to form and substance;

           25.7.7  Tenant shall not then be in default hereunder in any respect
(except for payment of Rent or other sums due to Landlord);

           25.7.8  Such third party's proposed use of the Demised Premises shall
be the same as Tenant's permitted use;

           25.7.9  Except to the extent agreed to in writing by Landlord in its
sole and absolute discretion, Landlord shall not be bound by any provision of
any agreement pertaining to Tenant's transfer of rights or subletting of the
Demised Premises;

           25.7.10 Any agreement pertaining to Tenant's transfer of this Lease
or subletting of any portion of the Demised Premises shall be in a form
acceptable to Landlord in Landlord's reasonable discretion, and any such
agreement shall not be modified or amended without Landlord's prior written
consent, which may be withheld in Landlord's reasonable discretion;

           25.7.11 Tenant shall deliver to Landlord one original executed copy
of any and all written instruments evidencing or relating to Tenant's transfer
of rights or subletting of the Demised Premises; and

           25.7.12 A list of Hazardous Materials, certified by the proposed
sublessee to be true and correct, which the proposed sublessee intends to use or
store in the Demised Premises. Additionally, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord,
on or before the date any proposed sublessee takes occupancy of the Demised
Premises, all of the items relating to Hazardous Materials of such proposed
sublessee.

     25.8  Any sale, assignment, hypothecation or transfer of this Lease or
subletting of the Demised Premises that is not in compliance with the provisions
of this Article 25 shall be void and shall, at the option of Landlord, terminate
this Lease.

     25.9  The consent by Landlord to an assignment or subletting shall not
relieve Tenant or any assignees of this Lease or sublessee of the Demised
Premises from obtaining the consent of Landlord to any further assignment or
subletting nor shall it release Tenant or any assignee or sublessee of Tenant
from full and primary liability under this Lease.

     25.10 Notwithstanding any subletting or assignment, Tenant shall remain
fully and primarily liable for the payment of all Rent and other sums due, or to
become due hereunder, and 

 
for the full performance of all other terms, conditions, and covenants to be
kept and performed by Tenant, including during any extension of the Term hereof
pursuant to Article 42 hereof or the Extension Right. The acceptance of Rent or
any other sum due hereunder, or the acceptance of performance of any other term,
covenant, or condition thereof, from any other person or entity shall not be
deemed to be a waiver of any of the provisions of this Lease or a consent to any
subletting, assignment or other transfer of the Demised Premises.

     25.11 If Tenant shall sublet the Demised Premises or any part, Tenant
hereby immediately and irrevocably assigns to Landlord, as security for Tenant's
obligations under this Lease, all rent from any subletting of all or a part of
the Demised Premises and Landlord as assignee and as attorney-in-fact for Tenant
solely for such limited purpose, or a receiver for Tenant appointed on
Landlord's application, may collect such rent and apply it toward Tenant's
obligations under this Lease; except that, until the occurrence of an act of
Default by Tenant, Tenant shall have the right to collect such rent.

     25.12 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Article 25:

           25.12.1 Tenant may, upon thirty (30) days' advance written notice to
Landlord, assign this Lease or sublet the Demised Premises, or any portion
thereof, without Landlord's consent, to any entity which controls, is controlled
by, or is in common control with Tenant; to any entity which results from a
reincorporation or a merger or consolidation with Tenant; or to any entity which
acquires substantially all of the stock or assets of Tenant, as a going concern
with respect to the business that is being conducted in the Demised Premises
(hereinafter each a "Permitted Transfer"); provided, however, that with respect
                     ------------------                                        
to each of the Permitted Transfers, Tenant shall continue to remain liable for
all obligations under this Lease, and provided that the assignee or sublessee
first executes, acknowledges and delivers to Landlord an agreement whereby the
assignee, or to the extent of the Demised Premises subleased, the sublessee, for
the term of the sublease, agrees to be bound by all of the covenants and
agreements in this Lease.  In addition, a sale or transfer of the capital stock
of Tenant shall be deemed a Permitted Transfer if (i) such sale or transfer
occurs in connection with any bona fide financing or capitalization for the
benefit of Tenant, or (ii) Tenant becomes a publicly traded corporation.
Landlord shall have no right to terminate the Lease in connection with, and
shall have no right to any sums or other economic considerations resulting from
any Permitted Transfer except for reasonable attorneys fees and costs in
connection with reviewing the documentation of such Permitted Transfer, which
documentation Tenant agrees to timely provide to Landlord.

           25.12.2 Tenant may allow any person or company which is a client or
customer of Tenant or which is providing service to Tenant or one of Tenant's
clients to occupy certain portions of the Demised Premises without such
occupancy being deemed an assignment or subleasing as long as no new demising
walls are constructed to accomplish such occupancy and as long as such
relationship was not created as a subterfuge to avoid the obligations set forth
in Article 25.

 
26.  Attorneys' Fees And Costs
     -------------------------

     26.1  Tenant shall be responsible for (i) all of Tenant's legal and related
costs and fees in connection with this Lease, and (ii) all of Landlord's legal
and related costs and fees if Landlord is required to consult and attorney
regarding the enforcement of this Lease.

     26.2  If either party commences an action against the other party arising
out of or in connection with this Lease, the prevailing party shall be entitled
to have and recover from the non-prevailing party reasonable attorneys' fees,
charges and disbursements and costs of suit.

27.  Bankruptcy
     ----------

     27.1  In the event a debtor, trustee, or debtor in possession under the
Bankruptcy Code, or other person with similar rights, duties and powers under
any other law, proposes to cure any default under this Lease or to assume or
assign this Lease, and is obliged to provide adequate assurance to Landlord that
(i) a default will be cured, (ii) Landlord will be compensated for its damages
arising from any breach of this Lease, or (iii) future performance under this
Lease will occur, then adequate assurance shall include any or all of the
following, as designated by Landlord:

           27.1.1  Those acts specified in the Bankruptcy Code or other law as
included within the meaning of adequate assurance, even if this Lease does not
concern a shopping center or other facility described in such laws;

           27.1.2  A prompt cash payment to compensate Landlord for any monetary
defaults or actual damages arising directly from a breach of this Lease;

           27.1.3  A cash deposit in an amount at least equal to the Security
Deposit as referenced in 2.1.8 originally required at time of execution of this
Lease.

           27.1.4  The assumption or assignment of all of Tenant's interest and
obligations under this Lease.

28.  Estoppel Certificate
     --------------------

     28.1  Tenant shall within ten (10) days of written notice from Landlord,
execute, acknowledge and deliver a statement in writing substantially in the
form attached to this Lease as Exhibit "F" with the blanks filled in and with
                               -----------                                   
such other provisions as a lender or purchaser may reasonably request, and on
any other form reasonably requested by a proposed lender or purchaser, (i)

modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying that this Lease
as so modified is in full force and effect) and the dates to which the rental
and other charges are paid in advanced, if any, (ii) acknowledging that there
are not, to Tenant's knowledge, any uncured defaults on the part of Landlord
hereunder, or specifying such defaults if any are claimed and (iii) setting
forth such further information with respect to this Lease or the Demised
Premises as may be requested thereon.  Any such statement may be relied upon by
any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of all or any portion of the real
property of which the Demised Premises are a part.  Tenant's 

 
failure to deliver such statement within such time shall, at the option of
Landlord, constitute a Default under this Lease.

     28.2  Landlord shall within ten (10) days of written notice from Tenant,
execute, acknowledge and deliver a statement in writing on a form reasonably
requested by a proposed assignee or sublessee (i) certifying that this Lease is
unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of
such modification and certifying that this Lease as so modified is in full force
and effect) and the dates to which the rental and other charges are paid in
advanced, if any, (ii) acknowledging that there are not, to Landlord's
knowledge, any uncured defaults on the part of Tenant hereunder, or specifying
such defaults if any are claimed and (iii) setting forth such further
information with respect to this Lease or the Demised Premises as may be
requested thereon.  Any such statement may be relied upon by any permitted
assignee or permitted sublessee of all or any portion of the real property of
which the Demised Premises are a part.

29.  Joint And Several Obligations
     -----------------------------

     29.1  If more than one person or entity executes this Lease as Tenant,

           29.1.1  Each of them is jointly and severally liable for the keeping,
observing and performing of all of the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions
and agreements of this Lease to be kept, observed and performed by Tenant, and

           29.1.2  The term "Tenant" as used in this Lease shall mean and 
                             ------    
include each of them jointly and severally. The act of, notice from, notice to,
refund to, or the signature of, any one or more of them, with respect to the
tenancy of this Lease, including, but not limited to, any renewal, extension,
expiration, termination or modification of this Lease, shall be binding upon
each and all of the persons executing this Lease as Tenant with the same force
and effect as if each and all of them had so acted, so given or received such
notice or refund or so signed.

30.  Definition Of Landlord; Limitation Of Landlord's Liability
     ----------------------------------------------------------

     30.1  The term "Landlord" as used in this Lease, so far as covenants or
                     --------                                               
obligations on the part of Landlord are concerned, shall be limited to mean and
include only Landlord or the successor-in-interest of Landlord under this Lease
at the time in question.  In the event of any transfer, assignment or the
conveyance of Landlord's fee title or leasehold interest, the landlord herein
named (and in case of any subsequent transfers or conveyances, the then grantor)
shall be automatically freed and relieved from, and after the date of such
transfer, assignment or conveyance, of all liability for the performance of any
covenants or obligations contained in this Lease thereafter to be performed by
Landlord, provided such transferee assumes in full in writing Landlord's
obligations hereunder, and, without further agreement, the transferee of such
title or leasehold shall be deemed to have assumed and agreed to observe and
perform any and all obligations of Landlord hereunder during its ownership or
ground lease of the Demised Premises.  Landlord may transfer its interest in the
Demised Premises or this Lease without the consent of Tenant and such transfer
or subsequent transfer shall not be deemed a violation on the part of Landlord
or the then grantor of any of the terms or conditions of this Lease.

 
     30.2  If Landlord is in default of this Lease, and as a consequence, Tenant
recovers a money judgment against Landlord, the judgment shall be satisfied only
out of the proceeds of sale received on execution of the judgment and levy
against the right, title and interest of Landlord in the Building and Project,
and out of rent or other income from such real property receivable by Landlord
or out of the consideration received by Landlord from the sale, financing,
refinancing, or other disposition of all or any part of Landlord's right, title,
and interest in the Building and Project.

     30.3  Landlord shall not be personally liable for any deficiency.  If
Landlord is a partnership, limited liability company or joint venture, the
members of such limited liability company or the partners of such partnership
shall not be personally liable and no member or partner of Landlord shall be
sued or named as a party in any suit or action or service of process be made
against any partner of Landlord except as may be necessary to secure
jurisdiction of the partnership, limited liability company or joint venture.  If
Landlord is a corporation, the shareholders, directors, officers, employees,
and/or agents of such corporation shall not be personally liable and no
shareholder, director, officer, employee or agent of Landlord shall be sued or
named as a party in any suit or action or service of process made against any
shareholder, director, officer, employee or agent of Landlord.  No partner,
member shareholder, director, employee, or agent of Landlord shall be required
to answer or otherwise plead to any service of process and no judgment will be
taken or writ of execution levied against any partner, member, shareholder,
director, employee or agent of Landlord.

     30.4  Each of the covenants and agreements of this Article 30 shall be
applicable to any covenant or agreement either expressly contained in this Lease
or imposed by statute or by common law and shall survive the termination of this
Lease.

31.  Project Control By Landlord
     ---------------------------

     31.1  Landlord reserves full control over the Building and the Project to
the extent not inconsistent with or injurious to Tenant's enjoyment of the
Demised Premises.  This reservation includes but is not limited to right of
Landlord to expand the Project, subdivide the Project, convert the Building and
or other buildings within the Project to condominium units, the right to grant
easements and licenses to others and the right to maintain or establish
ownership of the Building separate from fee title to the land on which the
Building is located.

     31.2  Landlord further reserves the right to combine the Project with any
other project in the area of the Project and owned by Landlord or its
affiliates.

     31.3  Tenant shall, should Landlord so request, promptly join with Landlord
in execution of such documents as may be reasonably appropriate to assist
Landlord to implement any such action, provided that Tenant need not execute any
document which is of nature wherein liability is created in Tenant or, if by
reason of the terms of such document, Tenant will be deprived of the quiet
enjoyment and use of the Demised Premises as granted by this Lease or its rights
or duties hereunder will be adversely and materially affected.

     31.4  Landlord may, at any and all reasonable times during non-business
hours (or during business hours if Tenant so requests), and upon reasonable
advance notice (provided that 

 
no time restrictions shall apply or advance notice need be given if an emergency
necessitates an immediate entry), enter the Demised Premises to (a) inspect the
same and to determine whether Tenant is in compliance with its obligations
hereunder, (b) supply any service Landlord is required to provide hereunder, (c)
show the Demised Premises to prospective lenders, insurers, investors,
purchasers or, during the last year of the Term, tenants, (d) post notices of
nonresponsibility, (e) access the telephone equipment, electrical substation and
fire risers, and (f) alter, improve or repair any portion of the Building other
than the Demised Premises, but for which access to the Demised Premises is
necessary. In connection with any such alteration, improvement or repair,
Landlord may erect in the Demised Premises or elsewhere in the Building or the
Project scaffolding and other structures reasonably required for the work to be
performed. In no event shall Tenant's Rent abate as a result of any such entry
or work; provided, however, that all such work shall be done in such a manner
         --------  -------          
as to cause as little interference to Tenant as reasonably possible. Landlord
shall at all times retain a key with which to unlock all of the doors in the
Demised Premises. If an emergency necessitates immediate access to the Demised
Premises, Landlord may use whatever force is necessary to enter the Demised
Premises and any such entry to the Demised Premises shall not constitute a
forcible or unlawful entry to the Demised Premises, an unlawful detainer of the
Demised Premises, or an eviction of Tenant from the Demised Premises, or any
portion thereof.

32.  Quiet Enjoyment
     ---------------

     Landlord covenants and agrees that Tenant may peaceably and quietly enjoy
the Demised Premises without hindrance or disturbance, subject, nevertheless, to
the terms, conditions and covenants of this Lease.

33.  Quitclaim Deed
     --------------

     Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord on the expiration or
termination of this Lease, immediately on Landlord's request, in recordable
form, a quitclaim deed to the Demised Premises or such other documentation
reasonably requested by Landlord evidencing termination of this Lease.

34.  Intentionally Omitted.

35.  Subordination And Attornment
     ----------------------------

     35.1  Provided that Tenant receives a non-disturbance agreement from any
applicable mortgagee, beneficiary or landlord in substantially the same form as
                                                                               
Exhibit "G" attached hereto and with such other provisions as may be reasonably
-----------                                                                    
requested by a proposed lender (the "Nondisturbance Agreement"), Tenant shall,
                                     ------------------------                 
within ten (10) days of written notice from Landlord, execute, acknowledge and
deliver the Nondisturbance Agreement with the blanks filled in, and this Lease
shall be subject and subordinate to the lien of any mortgage, deed of trust, or
lease in which Landlord is tenant now or hereafter in force against the Project
or the Building and to all advances made or hereafter to be made upon the
security thereof without the necessity of the execution and delivery of any
further instruments on the part of Tenant to effectuate such subordination.

 
     35.2  Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to receipt of a
Nondisturbance Agreement, Tenant shall execute and deliver upon demand such
further instrument or instruments evidencing such subordination of this Lease to
the lien of any such mortgage or mortgages or deeds of trust or lease in which
Landlord is tenant as may be required by Landlord.  However, if any such
mortgagee, beneficiary or Landlord under lease wherein Landlord is tenant so
elects, this Lease shall be deemed prior in lien to any such lease, mortgage, or
deed of trust upon or including the Demised Premises regardless of date and
Tenant will execute a statement in writing to such effect at Landlord's request.
If Tenant fails to execute any document required from Tenant under this Article
35 within ten (10) days after written request therefor, such failure shall be a
breach of and Default under this Lease.

     35.3  In the event any proceedings are brought for foreclosure, or in the
event of the exercise of the power of sale under any mortgage or deed of trust
made by the Landlord covering the Demised Premises, the Tenant shall at the
election of the purchaser at such foreclosure or sale attorn to the purchaser
upon any such foreclosure or sale and recognize such purchaser as the Landlord
under this Lease, provided such party has assumed in full in writing Landlord's
obligations under this Lease.

36.  Surrender
     ---------

     36.1  No surrender of possession of any part of the Demised Premises shall
release Tenant from any of its obligations hereunder unless accepted by
Landlord.

     36.2  The voluntary or other surrender of this Lease by Tenant shall not
work a merger, unless Landlord consents and shall, at the option of Landlord,
operate as an assignment to it of any or all subleases or subtenancies.

     36.3  The voluntary or other surrender of any ground or underlying lease
that now exists or may hereafter be executed affecting the Building or the
Project, or a mutual cancellation, thereof, or of Landlord's interest therein,
shall not work a merger and shall, at the option of the successor of Landlord's
interest in the Building or Project, operate as an assignment of this Lease.

     36.4  Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant
shall surrender the Demised Premises to Landlord broom clean and free of debris;
with all of Tenant's personal property and effects removed therefrom; with all
alterations, improvements and fixtures required by Landlord to be removed from
the Demised Premises actually removed and all damage as a result of or caused by
such removal repaired; and with all licenses, permits and similar items which
restrict or affect the used of the Demised Premises released and fully
terminated.

37.  Waiver And Modification
     -----------------------

     No provision of this Lease may be modified, amended or added to except by
an agreement in writing.  The waiver by Landlord or Tenant of any breach of any
term, covenant or condition herein contained shall not be deemed to be a waiver
of any subsequent breach of the same or any other term, covenant or condition
herein contained.

 
38.  Waiver of Jury Trial And Counterclaims
     --------------------------------------

     THE PARTIES HERETO SHALL AND THEY HEREBY DO WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY
ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM BROUGHT BY EITHER OF THE PARTIES HERETO
AGAINST THE OTHER ON ANY MATTERS WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY
CONNECTED WITH THIS LEASE, THE RELATIONSHIP OF LANDLORD AND TENANT, TENANT'S USE
OR OCCUPANCY OF THE DEMISED PREMISES, AND OR ANY CLAIM OF INJURY OR DAMAGE.

39.  Intentionally Omitted.

40.  Right To Expand
     ---------------

     Tenant shall have the right, but not the obligation, to expand the Demised
Premises (the "Expansion Right") to include all the rentable premises at the
               ---------------                                              
buildings located at 3000, 3010 and 3018 Western Avenue (collectively, the
"Expansion Space") leased to the University of Washington as of the Effective
----------------                                                             
Date pursuant to the terms of that certain Lease dated February, 13, 1998, by
and between the Board of Regents of the University of Washington and Landlord
(the "UW Lease"), upon the following terms and conditions:
      --------                                            

     40.1 If, after the expiration or earlier termination of the term of the UW
Lease (and exercise or expiration of any applicable extension options in the UW
Lease), Landlord desires to lease all or any portion of the Expansion Space,
Landlord shall deliver to Tenant written notice (the "Expansion Notice") of the
                                                      ----------------         
availability of such portion of the Expansion Space, together with the terms and
conditions, including rent, on which Landlord is prepared to lease to Tenant
such portion of the Expansion Space.  Tenant shall have thirty (30) days
following delivery of the Expansion Notice to deliver to Landlord written
notification of Tenant's exercise of the Expansion Right and agreement to lease
such portion of the Expansion Space upon the terms and conditions of the
Expansion Notice.  In the event Tenant fails to timely deliver such notice, or
if Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree upon any of the terms of the lease
agreement for such portion of the Expansion Space after negotiating in good
faith for a period of thirty (30) days, Tenant shall be deemed to have waived
any right to lease such portion of the Expansion Space unless and until such
portion of the Expansion Space again becomes vacant following a tenancy, or, if
such portion of the Expansion Space is not thereafter leased by Landlord,
following the date which is one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of
delivery of the Expansion Notice for such Expansion Space.

     40.2 Within ten (10) days after the proper exercise of the Expansion Right
and Landlord and Tenant agreeing upon the terms and conditions including rent
for the lease of the Expansion Space, Tenant and Landlord shall enter into a
written amendment to this Lease (the "Expansion Amendment") which shall provide,
                                      -------------------                       
unless otherwise agreed in writing, (a) the commencement date of the Expansion
Space; (b) that the Demised Premises under this Lease shall be increased to
include the rentable square feet of the Expansion Space; (c) the new Basic
Annual Rent; (d) Tenant's new Pro Rata Share based upon the addition of the
Expansion Space to the Demised Premises; and (e) the proportionate increase to
the Security Deposit (which shall be payable upon execution of the Expansion
Amendment).  In all other respects, this Lease shall remain in full force and
effect, and shall apply to the Expansion Space.

 
     40.3 Notwithstanding the above, the Expansion Right shall not be in effect
and may not be exercised by Tenant:

          40.3.1 during any period of time that Tenant is in default under any
provision of this Lease; or

          40.3.2 if Tenant has been in default under any provision of this Lease
three (3) or more times, whether or not the defaults are cured, during the five
(5) month period prior to the date on which Tenant seeks to exercise the
Expansion Right.

     40.4 Tenant's rights in connection with the Expansion Right are and shall
be subject to and subordinate to any expansion or extension rights granted to
the tenant under the UW Lease.

     40.5 Expansion Rights are personal to Dendreon and are not assignable
separate and apart from this Lease, except in the case of a Permitted Transfer,
provided that Dendreon shall be and remain liable for any lease of the Expansion
Space.

     40.6 The Expansion Right shall terminate and be of no further force or
effect even after Tenant's due and timely exercise of the Expansion Right, if,
after such exercise, but prior to the commencement date of the Expansion Space,
Tenant fails to timely cure any default by Tenant under this Lease of which
Tenant is given written notice; or Tenant has defaulted three (3) or more times
during the period from the date of the exercise of the Expansion Right to the
date of the commencement of the Expansion Space, whether or not such defaults
are cured.

41.  Hazardous Materials
     -------------------

     41.1 Prohibition/Compliance.  Tenant shall not cause or permit any
          ----------------------                                       
Hazardous Materials (as hereinafter defined) to be brought upon, kept or used in
or about the Demised Premises, the Building or the Project in violation of
applicable law by Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors or invitees.  If
(i) Tenant breaches the obligation stated in the preceding sentence; (ii) the
presence of Hazardous Materials in, on, at, under, above or about the Demised
Premises, the Building or the land under the Building (except for Hazardous
Materials specifically described in the Environmental Report which shall be the
responsibility of Landlord) at any time results in contamination of the Demised
Premises, the Building, the Project or any adjacent property; (iii)
contamination of the Demised Premises, the Building, the Project or any adjacent
property by Hazardous Materials is otherwise caused by Tenant or its agents,
representatives or invitees during the term of this Lease or any extension or
renewal hereof or holding over hereunder, then Tenant hereby indemnifies and
shall defend and hold Landlord, its officers, directors, employees, agents and
contractors harmless from any and all claims, judgments, damages, penalties,
fines, costs, liabilities, or losses (including, without limitation, diminution
in value of the Demised Premises or any portion of the Building or the Project,
damages for the loss or restriction on use of rentable or usable space or of any
amenity of the Demised Premises, the Building or the Project, damages arising
from any adverse impact on marketing of space in the Demised Premises, the
Building or the Project, and sums paid in settlement of claims, attorneys' fees,
consultant fees and expert fees) which arise during or after the Lease term as a
result of such contamination.  This indemnification of Landlord by Tenant
includes, without limitation, costs incurred in connection with any
investigation of site 

 
conditions or any cleanup, remedial, removal, or restoration work required by
any federal, state or local governmental agency or political subdivision because
of Hazardous Materials present in the air, soil or ground water above, on or
under the Demised Premises. Without limiting the foregoing, if the presence of
any Hazardous Materials on the Demised Premises, the Building, the Project or
any adjacent property, caused or permitted by Tenant or its agents,
representatives or invitees results in any contamination of the Demised
Premises, the Building, the Project or any adjacent property, Tenant shall
promptly take all actions at its sole expense as are necessary to return the
Demised Premises, the Building, the Project or any adjacent property, to the
condition existing prior to the time of such contamination, provided that
Landlord's approval of such action shall first be obtained, which approval shall
not unreasonably be withheld so long as such actions would not potentially have
any material adverse long-term or short-term effect on the Demised Premises, the
Building or the Project.

     41.2 Business.  Landlord acknowledges that it is not the intent of this
          --------                                                          
Article 41 to prohibit Tenant from operating its business as described in
Section 2.1.8 above.  Tenant may operate its business according to the custom of
the industry so long as the use or presence of Hazardous Materials is strictly
and properly monitored according to all applicable governmental requirements.
As a material inducement to Landlord to allow Tenant to use Hazardous Materials
in connection with its business, Tenant agrees to deliver to Landlord prior to
the Term Commencement Date a list identifying each type of Hazardous Materials
to be present on the Demised Premises and setting forth any and all governmental
approvals or permits required in connection with the presence of such Hazardous
Materials on the Demised Premises ("Hazardous Materials List").  Tenant shall
                                    ------------------------                 
deliver to Landlord an updated Hazardous Materials List at least once a year and
shall also deliver an updated list before any new Hazardous Materials is brought
onto the Demised Premises.  Tenant shall deliver to Landlord true and correct
copies of the following documents (the "Documents") relating to the handling,
                                        ---------                            
storage, disposal and emission of Hazardous Materials prior to the Term
Commencement Date, or if unavailable at that time, concurrent with the receipt
from or submission to a governmental agency: permits; approvals; reports and
correspondence; storage and management plans, notice of violations of any laws;
plans relating to the installation of any storage tanks to be installed in or
under Building or the Project (provided, said installation of tanks shall only
be permitted after Landlord has given Tenant its written consent to do so, which
consent may be withheld in Landlord's sole and absolute discretion); and all
closure plans or any other documents required by any and all federal, state and
local governmental agencies and authorities for any storage tanks installed in,
on or under the Building or the Project for the closure of any such tanks.
Tenant is not required, however, to provide Landlord with any portion(s) of the
Documents containing information of a proprietary nature which, in and of
themselves, do not contain a reference to any Hazardous Materials or hazardous
activities.  It is not the intent of this Section 41.2 to provide Landlord with
information which could be detrimental to Tenant's business should such
information become possessed by Tenant's competitors.

     41.3 Termination of Lease/Withholding Approval of Assignment or Sublease.
          -------------------------------------------------------------------  
Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 41.1 above, if Tenant or any then
existing sublessee of Tenant, with respect to the Demised Premises or the
Project, or any proposed assignee or sublessee, with respect to any property, is
subject to an uncured enforcement order issued by any governmental authority in
connection with the use, disposal or storage of Hazardous Materials, Landlord
shall have the right, with respect to any such matter involving Tenant or an
existing 

 
sublessee of Tenant, to terminate this Lease in Landlord's sole and absolute
discretion, and, with respect to any such matter involving a proposed assignee
or sublessee, it shall not be unreasonable for Landlord to withhold its consent
to any proposed assignment or subletting.

     41.4 Testing.  At any time, and from time to time, prior to the expiration
          -------                                                              
or earlier termination of the Term, Landlord shall have the right to conduct
appropriate tests of the Demised Premises, the Building and the Project to
demonstrate that contamination has occurred as a result of Tenant's use of the
Demised Premises; provided, however, if that no contamination or Hazardous
Materials are discovered through such tests, such testing shall be limited to
once per year.  Tenant shall be solely responsible for and shall defend,
indemnify and hold the Landlord, its agents and contractors harmless from and
against any and all claims, costs and liabilities including actual attorneys'
fees, charges and disbursements, arising out of or in connection with any
removal, clean up, restoration and materials required hereunder to return the
Demised Premises and any other property of whatever nature to their condition
existing prior to the time of any such contamination.  Tenant shall pay for the
cost of the tests of the Demised Premises.

     41.5 Underground Tanks.
          ----------------- 

          41.5.1 Subject to Subsection 41.5.2 below, Landlord shall monitor the
underground or other storage tanks described in the Environmental Report (the
"Existing Tanks"), and maintain appropriate records, implement reporting
--------- -----                                                         
procedures, properly close any underground storage tanks that it determines to
close, and take or cause to be taken all other steps (including, without
limitation, repairs) necessary or required under the Washington State
Underground Storage Tank Act, Chapter 90.76 R.C.W. and the regulations
promulgated thereunder at WAC Section 173-180-080 and all other laws, as they
now exist or may hereafter be adopted or amended.

          41.5.2 If underground or other storage tanks storing Hazardous
Materials are placed on, under or about the Demised Premises or Project by
Tenant (the New Tanks") or if Tenant uses the Existing Tanks, then Tenant shall
            ----------   
monitor such New Tanks and the Existing Tanks, and maintain appropriate records,
implement reporting procedures, properly close such underground storage tanks at
the end of the Term unless instructed otherwise by Landlord in writing, and take
or cause to be taken all other steps (including, without limitation, repairs)
necessary or required under the Washington State Underground Storage Tank Act,
Chapter 90.76 R.C.W. and the regulations promulgated thereunder at WAC Section
173-180-080, as they now exist or may hereafter be adopted or amended; provided,
however, that the cost of Tenant's obligations with respect to any Existing
Tanks it uses shall be shared equitably with other users of such Existing Tanks.

     41.6 Tenant's Obligations.  Tenant's obligations under this Article 41
          --------------------                                             
shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.  During any
period of time employed by Tenant or Landlord after the termination of this
Lease to complete the removal from the Demised Premises of any such Hazardous
Materials and the release and termination of any licenses or permits restricting
the use of the Demised Premises, Tenant shall continue to pay the full Rent in
accordance with this Lease, which Rent shall be prorated daily.

 
     41.7 Definition of "Hazardous Materials." As used herein, the term
          ----------------------------------                           
"Hazardous Materials" shall mean any substance, chemical, compound, product,
--------------------                                                        
solid, gas, liquid, waste, byproduct, pollutant, contaminant, or material which
is hazardous or toxic, and includes, without limitation, (a) asbestos,
polychlorinated biphenyls, lead-based paints and petroleum (including crude oil
or any fraction thereof) and (b) any material classified or regulated as
"hazardous," "toxic" or "dangerous" pursuant to any Environmental Law.  As used
herein, the term "Environmental Law" shall include, without limitation, the
                  -----------------                                        
following: 42 U.S.C. Section 9601 et.  seq., (the Comprehensive Environmental

(the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act), 33 U.S.C. Section 1317

42.  Right To Extend Term.
     -------------------- 

     Tenant shall have the right to extend the Term of this Lease upon the
following terms and conditions:

     42.1 Tenant shall have two (2) consecutive rights (each, an "Extension
                                                                  ---------
Right") to extend the term of this Lease for five (5) years each (each, an
-----                                                                     
"Extension Term") on the same terms and conditions as this Lease.  During any
 --------------                                                              
Extension Term, Basic Annual Rent shall be payable at the Market Rate (as
defined below), but in no event less than the Basic Annual Rent payable on the
date immediately preceding the commencement of such Extension Term.  Basic
Annual Rent shall be adjusted on the commencement of each Extension Term and on
each one (1) year anniversary of the commencement of such Extension Term as
agreed by Landlord and Tenant.  As used herein, "Market Rate" shall mean the
                                                 -----------                
then market rental rate (and any adjustment schedule during the Extension Term)
as determined by Landlord and agreed to by Tenant, and shall include all
provisions for Additional Rent made in this Lease.  If, on or before the date
which is one hundred twenty (120) days prior to the expiration of the initial
Term of this Lease, or the expiration of any Extension Term, Tenant has not
agreed with Landlord's determination of the Market Rate or if Landlord and
Tenant have not agreed upon any of the other terms of such subsequent Extension
Term after negotiating in good faith, Tenant shall be deemed to have waived any
right to extend, or further extend, the Term of this Lease and all of the
remaining Extension Rights shall terminate.

     42.2 Extension Rights are personal to Dendreon and may not be assigned to
