prosecuting and/or maintaining the Licensed Patents that relate solely to the
Oral Formulation.

                  (e) As of the date of the Election, Lilly shall become solely
responsible for the development and commercialization of the Oral Formulation,
including, without limitation, the costs and expenses associated therewith.
Versicor shall have no further financial obligations to Lilly with respect to
the Oral Formulation, including, without limitation, no further obligation to

                  (f) Within sixty (60) days of the Election, Versicor shall

Formulation, and relevant patents or patent applications encompassing Versicor
Improvements. Additionally, Versicor shall execute, acknowledge and deliver such
further instruments, and do all such other acts, consistent with the transition
support obligations described in Section 2.9 and 2.10, to enable and facilitate
an effective transition of development and commercialization responsibilities
and activities to Lilly for the Oral Formulation of the Product.

                  (g) Versicor shall have the right, subject to negotiation of a
mutually acceptable agreement between the Parties, to obtain from Lilly a
license to exclusively Co-Promote with Lilly the Oral Formulation in the
Hospital Market Sector (the "Versicor Co-Promotion Right"). Versicor may
exercise the Versicor Co-Promotion Right no later than ninety (90) days prior to
the anticipated completion of Phase III Clinical Trials by providing Lilly with
written notice of its desire to negotiate a Co-Promotion agreement. Upon
exercise of the Versicor Co-Promotion Right, the Parties shall mutually
negotiate in good faith the terms and conditions on a country-by-country basis
under which such Co-Promotion shall occur, which terms and conditions must be
consistent with the applicable terms of this Agreement and market comparables
and must include the following: (1) compensation to Versicor for its
Co-Promotion efforts in the Hospital Market Sector taking into account the
economic burdens assumed by Versicor; (2) a manner of defining




                                      -15-


Versicor Co-Promotion efforts qualifying for compensation from Lilly, taking
into account the form, substance and delivery of such efforts; and (3) agreement
that Versicor's negotiated license to Co-Promote the Oral Formulation shall be
limited exclusively to Versicor, with no right to sublicense or use a third
party or Affiliate sales force without the prior written consent of Lilly. In
the event a Co-Promotion agreement is not fully executed by the Parties on or
before ninety (90) days after completion of the last Phase III Clinical Trial
necessary for preparing the first Application for Marketing Authorization for
the Oral Formulation, the Versicor Co-Promotion Right shall expire. Thereafter,
Versicor shall have a right to match Co-Promotion offers, similar to Lilly's
rights under Section 2.8 below.

         2.8 LILLY RIGHT TO FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES. Versicor recognizes that Lilly
has an interest in future royalties and milestone fees for the Product.
Therefore, in addition to Lilly's rights under Section 2.7 above, in the event
that Versicor seeks at any time to license a third party any rights with respect
to Product in the Territory ("License Opportunity"), whether together with or
independent of Versicor, Versicor shall in good faith consider Lilly for such
License Opportunity, subject to arms-length negotiations.

         2.9 TRANSITION SUPPORT. Subject to the other provisions of this Section
2.9 and Section 2.10, Lilly shall make available to Versicor the Licensed
Technology, either through access to documents and/or to personnel in possession
of such Licensed Technology. Lilly and Versicor shall establish a joint team of
personnel to coordinate transition of the Licensed Patents, Licensed Technology
and Transferred Assets. Lilly undertakes to work in good faith with Versicor to
complete an effective transition of the Licensed Patents, Licensed Technology
and Transferred Assets to Versicor within six (6) months of the Effective Date
("Transition Period"), subject to the limitations set forth herein. During the
Transition Period, Lilly shall provide, at no cost to Versicor, reasonable
access to appropriate and available personnel for up to two hundred (200) person
hours (during normal business hours) for reasonable regulatory, scientific,
medical, information technology, and patent assistance and consultation related
to the transition of the Licensed Patents, Licensed Technology and Transferred
Assets from Lilly to Versicor, not including Manufacturing Support which is
otherwise covered by Section 2.10 below, and shall execute, acknowledge and
deliver such further instruments as may be necessary to enable and facilitate an
effective transition for the Product. In the event the Parties mutually agree to
extend either the Transition Period or the total man hours of Lilly support,
Versicor shall reimburse Lilly for the cost of such additional time




                                      -16-


or hours at a rate of Three Hundred Dollars ($300.00) per hour for Lilly patent
counsel hours and One Hundred Fifty Dollars ($150.00) per hour for all other
Lilly personnel hours. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all out-of-pocket expenses
or other costs associated with travel and related accommodations for Lilly
personnel involved in transition support shall be paid by Versicor.
Additionally, Lilly shall execute, acknowledge and deliver such further
instruments, and do all such other acts, consistent with the transition support
obligations described in Section 2.9 and 2.10, to enable and facilitate an
effective transition of development and commercialization responsibilities and
activities to Versicor for the Product.

         2.10 MANUFACTURING SUPPORT. Upon request by Versicor, Lilly shall
provide, at no cost to Versicor, reasonable access to appropriate and available
manufacturing and information technology personnel for up to three hundred (300)
person hours (during normal business hours) ("Manufacturing Support") for
reasonable manufacturing process technical assistance and consultation that
would enable Versicor and/or a third party manufacturer to reasonably employ the
Licensed Patents and/or Licensed Technology in the manufacture of the Product;
provided, however, that such Manufacturing Support shall be (i) provided over a
time period not exceeding two (2) months in duration, commencing with the first
date of engagement in such Manufacturing Support by Lilly personnel; and (ii)
completed no later than August 31, 2000.

         2.11 BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS. In connection with providing manufacturing
support under Section 2.10, Lilly shall transfer all the Biological Materials to
Versicor. Versicor shall not distribute or release the Biological Materials to
others except to further the purposes of this Agreement. All Biological
Materials, provided to Versicor and/or its sublicensee by Lilly under the terms
of this Agreement shall be maintained as a trade secret by Versicor and/or its
sublicensee and shall not be delivered or transmitted to any third party without
the express written consent of Lilly and then only upon enforceable written
assurances to Lilly by Versicor and the third party that the know-how and trade
secret rights in the Biological Materials will not be compromised by the
transaction. Versicor shall protect the Biological Materials at least as well as
it protects its own valuable tangible personal property and shall take measures
to protect the Biological Materials from any claims by third parties including
creditors and trustees in bankruptcy. Versicor's and/or its sublicensee's
obligation to safeguard the trade secret status of the Biological Materials
shall extend in perpetuity beyond the Royalty Term. Upon early termination of
this Agreement (but not expiration under Section 4.1), Versicor shall




                                      -17-


return any remaining Biological Materials to Lilly or otherwise dispose of such
materials as instructed by Lilly.

running royalties ("Royalty Payments") for the Product as follows:

                  [ * ]


                  (b) In the event practice or use of the Licensed Patents or 
Licensed Technology consistent with the terms of this Agreement results in 
(i) an infringement claim by a third party or (ii) a desire on the part of 
Versicor to enter into a third party license agreement based on its good 
faith opinion that an infringement against such third party's patent(s) may 
occur without such a license and notice to and concurrence by Lilly to such 
third party license (which concurrence shall not be unreasonably withheld), 
Versicor shall be entitled to credit, against royalties otherwise owed to 
Lilly under Section 3.5 above, [ * ] of any amount actually paid by Versicor 
to such third party for a license under a patent owned or controlled by such 
third party; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that Versicor may only credit against 
royalties otherwise due in a Calendar Year such amounts that (i) are directly 
attributable to the manufacture or sale of the Product (and not with respect

                                      -21-


                  (d) During the term of this Agreement and after the first sale
of the Product, Versicor shall furnish to Lilly on a quarterly basis a written
report covering each Calendar Quarter (each such Calendar Quarter being
sometimes referred to herein as a "reporting period") showing (1) the Net Sales
of Product in each country by Versicor or its Affiliates or sublicensees, and
(2) the Royalty Payments, which shall have accrued under this Section 3.5 in
respect of such sales and the basis for calculating those royalties. With
respect to sales of the Product invoiced in a currency other than U.S. Dollars,
the Net Sales and amounts due to Lilly hereunder shall be expressed in the U.S.
Dollar equivalent calculated on a monthly basis in the currency of the country
of sale and converted to their dollar equivalent using the official rate of
exchange as determined by the European American Bank (or such other bank as may
be regularly relied upon by Versicor with respect to official exchange rates) in
effect on the last business day of the applicable month of the Calendar Quarter
to which the report relates. Versicor will, at Lilly's reasonable request but
not more frequently than once a year, inform Lilly as to the specific exchange
rate translation methodology used for a particular country or countries. Each
quarterly report shall be due thirty (30) days following the close of each
reporting period. Amounts shown to have accrued by each sales report shall be
due and payable on the date such sales report is due.

                  (e) Versicor shall keep accurate records in sufficient detail
to enable the Royalty Payments due to be determined and verified by the audit
described in Section 3.6 for at least three years following the period in which
such obligation arose. Additionally, if laws or regulations require the
withholding of taxes, the taxes will be deducted by Versicor from the Royalty
Payments and remitted by Versicor to the proper tax authority. Proof of payment
shall be provided to Lilly within ninety (90) days after payment. Versicor will
cooperate in pursuing the refund of such tax, if such refund is appropriate in
Lilly's determination.

         3.6 AUDITS. Versicor and its Affiliates and sublicensees shall keep
full and accurate books and records relating to the performance of its payment
obligations required under this Agreement. During the term plus three (3) years
after termination or expiration of this Agreement, Lilly shall have the right,
during regular business hours and upon reasonable advance notice, no more often
than once every twelve (12) months to have such books and records audited so as
to verify the accuracy of the payments made to Lilly. The scope of such audits
shall be restricted to the review of not more than three (3) prior years. Such
information shall be Versicor Confidential Information and, as such, subject




                                      -22-


to confidentiality pursuant to Section 6.3. The cost of such audit shall be
borne by Lilly; however, in the event such audit reveals that the Royalty
Payments to Lilly deviates by five percent (5%) or more from that revealed by
the audit to be actually owed, the cost of the audit shall be borne by Versicor.
Versicor shall include in all sublicenses granted as permitted under Section 2.6
an audit provision substantially similar to the foregoing requiring the
sublicensee to keep full and accurate books and records relating to the Product
and granting Lilly the right to audit the accuracy of the information reported
by the sublicensee in connection therewith on the same terms as apply to an
audit of Versicor's records hereunder.

         3.7 LATE PAYMENTS. Any amounts not paid by Versicor when due under this
Agreement shall be subject to interest from and including the date payment is
due through and including the date upon which Lilly has collected immediately
available funds in an account designated by Lilly at a rate equal five percent
(5%) plus the prime rate of interest quoted in the Money Rates section of THE
WALL STREET JOURNAL, calculated daily on the basis of a 360-day year, or similar
reputable data source.

         3.8 NO EXCUSE. Versicor shall not be excused from or relieved of its
obligations to pay the amounts actually owed as described in this Section 3 by
any claimed or actual event of force majeure, commercial or other
impracticability or impossibility, or frustration of essential purpose, except
to the extent otherwise provided in this Agreement.

                                      -26-


respect to the Product, and Versicor shall submit to the relevant regulatory
authorities the information required of a new owner of regulatory filings with
respect to the Product.

         6.2 COMPLIANCE WITH LAW. Versicor shall comply with all federal, state
and local laws and regulations related to Versicor's manufacture, development,
marketing and selling of the Product. Without limiting the generality of the
foregoing sentence, Versicor shall not promote the Product in any manner in
conflict with any applicable laws or regulations.

         6.3 CONFIDENTIALITY. Except as provided elsewhere in this Agreement,
Lilly and Versicor each agree to maintain Confidential Information in confidence
and not use, transfer or disclose such Confidential Information to a third party
without the prior written approval of the other Party, except as is contemplated
by this Agreement, or as is required to be disclosed to recover Damages for a
breach of this Agreement, or as is required to comply with any order of a court
or any applicable rule, regulation, or law of any jurisdiction. In the event
that a Party is required by judicial or administrative process to disclose
Confidential Information of the other Party (except with respect to disclosures
to tax authorities), it shall promptly notify the other Party and allow the
other Party a reasonable time to oppose such process. For disclosures to tax
authorities, no prior notification to the other Party shall be required. The
foregoing obligations shall remain in force until ten (10) years following
termination of this Agreement by either Party, except with respect to trade
secrets for which such obligations shall continue in perpetuity.

         (a) Both Lilly and Versicor shall protect Confidential Information by
         using the same degree of care, but not less than a reasonable degree of
         care, to prevent the unauthorized disclosure or use of Confidential
         Information, as that Party uses to protect its own confidential
         information of like nature.

         (b) Any provision of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding,
         both Lilly and Versicor are entitled to disclose Confidential
         Information to the extent reasonably necessary for the purposes of this
         Agreement, to their respective Affiliates and their consultants,
         outside contractors and clinical investigators on the condition that
         such entities agree to be bound by this Agreement with respect to
         nondisclosure and/or non-use of such information.




                                      -27-


         6.4 PUBLICITY AND DISCLOSURE OF AGREEMENT. Within ten (10) days of the
Effective Date, the Parties shall agree in good faith on a form of press release
which Versicor may release after June 6, 1999. The Parties agree that no future
publicity release or announcement concerning the transactions contemplated
hereby shall be issued without the advance written consent of the other Party to
the extent such release or announcement includes statements concerning terms of
this Agreement and/or explicitly includes either Parties' trademark(s) or
name(s), except to the extent such release or announcement may be required by
law. For releases or announcements required by law, the Party making the release
or announcement shall, before making any such release or announcement, afford
the other Party a reasonable opportunity to review and comment. Any copy of this
to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission shall be redacted to the
reasonable satisfaction of both Parties; provided, however, in the event that
the Securities and Exchange Commission objects to the redaction of any portion
of the Agreement after the initial submission, the filing Party shall inform the
other Party of the objections and shall in good faith respond to the objections
in an effort to limit the disclosure required by the Securities and Exchange
Agreement, but in any event the filing Party shall be free to include any
portions of the Agreement it deems necessary to respond to the objections in any
future filings. Further, Versicor shall have the right to disclose the Agreement
in confidence to existing or prospective investors or acquirers and investment
bankers and related financial service providers.

         6.5 USE OF NAMES, LOGOS OR SYMBOLS. No Party hereto shall use the name,
trademarks, logos, physical likeness, employee names or owner symbol of the
other Party hereto for any purpose, including, without limitation, in connection
with any private or public securities placements, without the prior written
consent of the affected Party, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or
delayed so long as such use of name is limited to objective statements of fact,
rather than for endorsement purposes. Nothing contained herein shall be
construed as granting either Party any rights or license to use any of the other
Party's trademarks or tradenames without separate, express written permission of
the owner of such trademark or tradename.

         6.6 EXPENSES. Lilly and Versicor shall each bear their own direct and
indirect expenses incurred in connection with the negotiation and preparation of
this Agreement and, except as set forth in this Agreement, the performance of
the obligations contemplated hereby.




                                      -28-


         6.7 EFFORTS. Versicor shall use Reasonable Diligence to develop and 
obtain Regulatory Approval in the Territory for both the Intravenous and Oral 
Formulations of the Product. On or before January 1,2000, Versicor shall 
prepare and submit to Lilly a detailed plan for development of the Oral 
Formulation, setting forth a description of the efforts Versicor intends to 
make in connection with its Reasonable Diligence obligations for the Oral 
Formulation, which plan shall include at least one animal study ("Oral 
Formulation Development Plan"). Versicor shall provide Lilly with a 
reasonable opportunity to review and comment on the Oral Formulation 
Development Plan. Except as otherwise provided in Section 2.7, Versicor shall 
be solely responsible for all development efforts and costs associated with 
developing and obtaining Regulatory Approval of both the Intravenous and Oral 
Formulations of the Product. Lilly and Versicor each hereby agree to use all 
reasonable efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions and to do, or 
cause to be done, all things necessary or proper to make effective the 
transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including such actions as may be 
reasonably necessary to obtain approvals and consents of governmental Persons 
and other Persons (including, without limitation, all applicable drug listing 
and notifications to the relevant regulatory authorities identifying Versicor 
as a licensee of the Product); PROVIDED that no Party shall be required in 
connection with such activities to (1) make any payments (other than as 
expressly required pursuant to this Agreement), or (2) assume any other 
material obligation not otherwise required to be assumed by this Agreement. 
In the event Versicor or its sublicensees fail to undertake Reasonable 
Diligence in developing and/or obtaining Regulatory Approval of the 
Intravenous Formulation and/or the Oral Formulation of the Product in a 
particular country in the Territory, such failure shall be considered a 
material default of this Agreement for which Lilly shall be entitled to 
terminate this Agreement under Section 9.1 (b) solely with respect to such 
particular country and only as to the affected formulation (I.E., IV or oral) 
(but may not terminate the entire Agreement under Section 9.1 (d) for any 
such default), PROVIDED THAT Versicor (or its sublicensee) does not cure such 
failure within sixty (60) days of written notice from Lilly specifying its 
belief that such failure has occurred and the reasons therefor. However, 
Lilly shall not be entitled to exercise the foregoing termination rights if 
Versicor reasonably disputes Lilly's contention that Versicor has failed in 
such Reasonable Diligence until after the Parties have first pursued dispute 
resolution discussions and procedures as required under Section 10.14 with 
respect to such dispute. In the event of an uncured default by Versicor of 
its obligations to use Reasonable Diligence for the Oral Formulation prior to 
first human dose on an Oral Formulation, Lilly shall be entitled to terminate 
Versicor's license under Section 2.1 (a) in the Territory only with respect 
to the Oral Formulation, after first




                                      -29-


pursuing dispute resolution discussions and procedures as required under Section
10.14 (if Versicor disputes Lilly's claim that Versicor defaulted on such
obligation), and Versicor shall, and hereby does, grant to Lilly the license
described in Section 2. l(c) with respect to such Oral Formulation.

         6.8 COOPERATION. If either Party shall become engaged in or participate
in any investigation, claim, litigation, interference or other proceeding with
any third party, including any proceeding before a relevant regulatory
authority, relating in any way to the Product or any of the Licensed Patents the
other Party shall cooperate in all reasonable respects with such Party in
connection therewith, including, without limitation, using its reasonable
efforts to make available to the other Party such party's employees who may be
helpful with respect to such investigation, claim, litigation, interference or
other proceeding, provided that, for purposes of this provision, reasonable
efforts to make available any employee shall be deemed to mean providing a Party
with reasonable access to any such employee at no cost for a period of time not
to exceed 24 hours (e.g., three 8-hour business days). Thereafter, any such
employee shall be made available for such time and upon such terms and
conditions (including, but not limited to, compensation) as the Parties may
mutually agree.

         6.9 CONFLICTING RIGHTS. Lilly shall not grant any right to any third
party relating to the Licensed Patents or Licensed Technology that would violate
the terms of or conflict with the rights granted to Versicor pursuant to this
Agreement.

         6.10 MANUFACTURING. After the Effective Date, Versicor shall be solely
responsible for the manufacture of the Product, including without limitation for
clinical trials and commercialization. In the event Lilly exercises the Lilly
Development Option, Lilly shall assume manufacturing responsibilities for the
Oral Formulation.

         6.11 DEEMED BREACH OF COVENANT. Neither Lilly nor Versicor shall be
deemed to be in breach of any covenant contained in this Section 6 if such
Party's deemed breach is the result of any action or inaction on the part of the
other Party.




                                      -30-


                                    SECTION 7

                        INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

          7.1 PATENT PROSECUTION AND MAINTENANCE. Except to the extent otherwise
agreed by the Parties pursuant to subsection (f) and Section 7.3 below, Versicor
shall be responsible for the preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance of
the Licensed Patents including all payment obligations and shall on an ongoing
basis promptly furnish copies of all related documents to Lilly within thirty
(30) days of receipt or deposition.

                  a) Versicor shall, subject to the prior approval of Lilly (not
         to be unreasonably withheld), select registered patent attorneys or
         patent agents to provide services for preparing, filing, prosecuting
         and maintaining the Licensed Patents on behalf of Versicor and Lilly.
         Versicor shall directly pay such attorneys or agents and provide Lilly
         copies of each invoice associated with such services, as well as
         documentation that such invoices have been paid.

                  b) Lilly shall provide appropriate powers of attorney and
        other documents necessary to undertake such actions to the patent
        attorneys or patent agents providing such services.

                  c) Versicor and its attorneys or agents shall consult with
        Lilly in all aspects of the preparation, filing, prosecution and
        maintenance of the Licensed Patents and shall provide Lilly sufficient
        opportunity to comment on any document that Versicor intends to file or
        to cause to be filed with the relevant intellectual property or patent
        office.

                  d) Each Party shall promptly inform the other as to all
        matters that come to its attention that may affect the preparation,
        filing, prosecution, or maintenance of the Licensed Patents and permit
        each other to provide comments and suggestions with respect to such
        activities, which comments and suggestions shall be reasonably
        considered by the other Party.

                  e) Upon receipt of approval to market Product in a country of
         a Territory, Lilly shall provide assistance to Versicor in obtaining
         patent extensions, supplementary protection certificates, and the like
         for the Licensed Patents to the




                                      -31-


         extent the laws of the country provide it. It is understood that
         Versicor is responsible for promptly notifying Lilly of receipt of
         Regulatory Approval. Versicor shall provide Lilly with at least sixty
         (60) days prior written notice before surrendering or abandoning any
         Licensed Patent in any country of the Territory.

                  f) Except with respect to those patents and patent
        applications listed on List A-1 ("core patents and patent applications")
        in EXHIBIT A that are filed in a country in the Major Market Countries,
        upon ninety (90) days written notice to Lilly, Versicor may elect to
        surrender its rights under any particular Licensed Patent in any country
        in the Territory and owe no payment or other obligation under this
        section for patent-related expenses incurred in that country as to such
        Licensed Patent as of the effective date of such written notice. To the
        extent that Lilly desires to continue maintenance and/or prosecution of
        such Licensed Patents in such countries which Versicor has elected to
        surrender rights, Versicor shall cooperate fully with Lilly, its
        attorneys, and agents in assuming such responsibilities and provide
        Lilly with complete copies of any and all documents or other materials
        that Lilly deems necessary to undertake such responsibilities.

         7.2 RIGHT TO RECLAIM PATENT MANAGEMENT RESPONSIBILITIES. In the event
that Lilly exercises the Lilly Development Option, Lilly may provide Versicor
with written notice that Lilly wishes to assume control as of a certain date of
the preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance of any or all patent
applications and patents ("Selected Patents") included in the Licensed Patents.

                  a) If Lilly elects to assume responsibilities for Selected
         Patents, Versicor agrees to cooperate fully with Lilly, its attorneys,
         and agents in the preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance
         related to the Selected Patents and, upon request, to provide Lilly
         with complete copies of any and all documents or other materials that
         Lilly deems necessary to undertake such responsibilities. Lilly shall
         assume responsibility for all costs associated with the Selected
         Patents, including costs associated with transferring patent
         prosecution responsibilities to an attorney or agent of Lilly's choice,
         as of the date specified by Lilly in its election notice.

                  b) Lilly and its attorneys or agents shall consult with
         Versicor in all aspects of the preparation, filing, prosecution and
         maintenance of the Selected




                                      -32-


         Patents and shall provide Versicor sufficient opportunity to comment on
         any document related thereto that Lilly intends to file or to cause to
         be filed with the relevant intellectual property or patent office.

                  c) Each Party shall promptly inform the other as to all
         matters that come to its attention that may affect the preparation,
         filing, prosecution, or maintenance of the Selected Patents and permit
         each other to provide comments and suggestions with respect to such
         activities, which comments and suggestions shall be reasonably
         considered by the other Party.

                  d) Lilly shall provide ninety (90) days prior written notice
         to Versicor prior to any abandonment or surrender of rights by Lilly
         related to any or all of the Selected Patents, and Versicor shall have
         the right to notify Lilly of its election as of a certain date during
         such ninety (90) day period to resume responsibilities for such
         Selected Patents. If Versicor elects to resume responsibility of any or
         all of such Selected Patents, Lilly shall cooperate fully with
         Versicor, its attorneys, and agents in assuming the responsibilities of
         such related patent applications and patents and to provide Versicor
         with complete copies of any and all documents or other materials that
         Versicor deems necessary to undertake such responsibilities. Versicor
         shall assume responsibility for all costs associated with the Selected
         Patents for which it elects to resume responsibility under this
         subsection (d), including costs associated with transferring patent
         prosecution responsibilities to an attorney or agent of Versicor's
         choice, as of the date specified by Versicor in its election notice.

         7.3      INFRINGEMENT AND MISAPPROPRIATION.

                  (a) NOTICE. Each Party shall promptly notify the other in
writing of any alleged infringement or misappropriation by third parties of any
Licensed Patent or Licensed Technology and provide any information available to
that Party relating to such alleged infringement or misappropriation.

                  (b) ENFORCEMENT OF LICENSED PATENTS. Versicor shall have the
primary right, but not the obligation, to take action in its own name to secure
the cessation of any infringement or misappropriation or to enter suit against
the infringer. Any such action will be at Versicor's expense, employing counsel
of its own choosing. If Versicor elects




                                      -33-


not to exercise its right to prosecute or take other appropriate action in
connection with an infringement or misappropriation of the Licensed Patents or
fails to take any such action within sixty (60) days of first receiving of such
infringement or misappropriation, Lilly may do so at its own expense,
controlling such action. In the event of any infringement or misappropriation
suit against a third party brought by either Party pursuant to this Section, the
Party so proceeding shall pay to the other Party all of its costs and expenses
(but not attorney's fees) in connection with such action and such other Party
shall join in and reasonably cooperate with respect to such action to the extent
necessary to initiate and maintain it (e.g., by providing relevant documents,
witnesses and testimony, etc.).

                  (c) ALLOCATION OF DAMAGES OR OTHER MONETARY AWARDS. If
Versicor brings action, any Damages or other monetary awards recovered by
Versicor shall be applied proportionately first to defray the unreimbursed costs
and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred by either or both
Parties in the action. If any balance remains, Versicor shall second pay to
Lilly an amount equal to the royalty that Lilly would otherwise be entitled to
under this Agreement if such remaining balance was treated as Net Sales. If any
balance remains after payment to Lilly, such balance shall be the property of
Versicor. If Versicor fails to bring action and Lilly brings action, any Damages
or other monetary awards recovered by Lilly shall be applied first to defray the
costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred in the action
by either or both of the Parties. If any balance remains, Lilly shall second
retain as its own property an amount equal to the royalty that Lilly would
otherwise be entitled to under this Agreement if such remaining balance was
treated as Net Sales. If any balance remains, such balance shall be the property
of Versicor.

                  (d) SETTLEMENT PROCEDURES. No settlement, consent judgment or
other voluntary final disposition of a suit being prosecuted by a Party under
this Section 7.3 may be entered into without the consent of the other Party if
such settlement, consent judgment or other voluntary final disposition would
alter, derogate or diminish such other Party's rights under the Agreement or
otherwise materially adversely affect such other Party, which consent shall not
be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

                                   SECTION 8 

                                 INDEMNIFICATION

         8.1      INDEMNIFICATION.




                                      -34-


               (a) Lilly shall indemnify, defend and hold Versicor (and its 
directors, officers, employees, and Affiliates) harmless from and against any 
and all Damages incurred or suffered by Versicor (and its directors, 
officers, employees, and Affiliates) (excluding incidental or consequential 
Damages suffered or incurred by Versicor directly (as opposed to incidental 
or consequential Damages suffered or incurred by third parties who are, in 
turn, seeking the same from Versicor, which shall be covered by the indemnity 
set forth herein)) as a consequence of third party claims or actions based 
upon:

                    (1) any breach of any representation or warranty made by
Lilly in this Agreement;

                    (2) any failure to perform duly and punctually any covenant,
agreement or undertaking on the part of Lilly contained in this Agreement;

                    (3) any Excluded Liabilities.

               (b) Versicor shall indemnify, defend and hold Lilly (and its 
directors, officers, employees, and Affiliates) harmless from and against any 
and all Damages incurred or suffered by Lilly (and its directors, officers, 
employees, and Affiliates) (excluding incidental or consequential Damages 
suffered or incurred by Lilly directly (as opposed to incidental or 
consequential Damages suffered or incurred by third parties who are, in turn, 
seeking the same from Lilly, which shall be covered by the indemnity set 
forth herein)) as a consequence of third party claims or actions based on:

                    (1) any breach of any representation or warranty made by
Versicor in this Agreement;

                    (2) any failure to perform duly and punctually any covenant,
agreement or undertaking on the part of Versicor contained in this Agreement;

                    (3) and the Versicor Responsibilities, including; any action
or inaction by Versicor (and its agents, directors, officers, employees,
Affiliates and sublicensees) related to the making, using, selling, offering to
sell, or importing of the Product or Transferred Assets after the Effective
Date, except to the extent such action or inaction is caused by the misconduct
or negligence of Lilly.




                                      -35-


         8.2 NOTICE AND OPPORTUNITY TO DEFEND. Promptly after receipt by a Party
hereto of notice of any claim which could give rise to a right to
indemnification pursuant to Section 8.1, such Party (the "Indemnified Party")
shall give the other Party (the "Indemnifying Party") written notice describing
the claim in reasonable detail. The failure of an Indemnified Party to give
notice in the manner provided herein shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of
its obligations under this Section, except to the extent that such failure to
give notice materially prejudices the Indemnifying Party's ability to defend
such claim. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right, at its option, either
to compromise or defend, at its own expense and by its own counsel, any such
matter involving the asserted liability of the Party seeking such
indemnification, except as provided below. The Indemnifying Party shall promptly
(and in any event not less than twenty (20) days after receipt of the
Indemnified Party's original notice) notify the Indemnified Party in writing of
its intention to either compromise or defend such matter, and the Indemnified
Party agrees to cooperate fully with the Indemnifying Party and its counsel in
the compromise or defense against any such asserted liability. All reasonable
costs and expenses incurred in connection with such cooperation shall be borne
by the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party elects in writing not to
compromise or defend the asserted liability, fails to notify the Indemnified
Party of its election to compromise or defend as herein provided, fails to admit
its obligation to indemnify under this Agreement with respect to the claim
following a written request of the Indemnified Party (except in the case where
the Indemnifying Party denies, on reasonable grounds, that it has such an
obligation (which dispute shall be resolved under Section 10.14)), or, if in the
reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnified Party, the claim could result
in the Indemnified Party becoming subject to injunctive relief or relief other
than the payment of money Damages that could materially adversely affect the
ongoing business of the Indemnified Party in any manner, the Indemnified Party
shall have the right, at its option, to pay, compromise or defend such asserted
liability by its own counsel and its reasonable costs and expenses shall be
included as part of the indemnification obligation of the Indemnifying Party
hereunder; provided, however, in the event the Indemnifying Party intends to
compromise or settle a claim under this Section 8.2, the Indemnifying Party
shall provide at least ten (10) business days prior written notice to the
Indemnified Party describing the proposed compromise or settlement in order that
the Indemnified Party may comment and/or object. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
neither the Indemnifying Party nor the Indemnified Party may settle or
compromise any claim under this Section 8.2 over the written objection of the
other Party if such settlement or compromise could reasonably result in a
material adverse effect on the other Party or otherwise alter, diminish or
derogate the other Party's




                                      -36-


rights under this Agreement. In any event, the Indemnified Party and the
Indemnifying Party may participate, at their own expense, in the defense of such
asserted liability. If the Indemnifying Party defends any claim, the Indemnified
Party shall make available to the Indemnifying Party any books, records or other
documents within its control that are necessary or appropriate for such defense.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 8.2, (1) the Party
conducting the defense of a claim shall (A) keep the other Party informed on a
reasonable and timely basis as to the status of the defense of such claim (but
only to the extent such other Party is not participating jointly in the defense
of such claim), and (B) conduct the defense of such claim in a prudent manner,
and (2) the Indemnifying Party shall not cease to defend any claim (except
pursuant to a permitted settlement or compromise thereof) without the prior
written consent of the Indemnified Party (which consent shall not be
unreasonably withheld).

         8.3 INDEMNIFICATION PAYMENT OBLIGATION. No Indemnifying Party will have
any obligations under Sections 8.1(a) or 8.1(b) until the cumulative aggregate
amount of Damages incurred or suffered by the Indemnified Party (or which likely
would be incurred or suffered if the relevant claim were successful) which the
Indemnifying Party is otherwise subject to under this Agreement exceeds
$100,000, at which time the entire cumulative aggregate amount of such Damages
shall be covered. The provisions of this Section 8.3 shall not limit or
otherwise affect the obligations of any Indemnifying Party under any other
Section of this Agreement.

         8.4 INDEMNIFICATION PAYMENT ADJUSTMENTS. The amount of any Damages for
which indemnification is provided under this Section 8 shall be reduced to take
account of any net tax benefit and shall be increased to take account of any net
tax detriment arising from the incurrence or payment of any such Damages or from
the receipt of any such indemnification payment and shall be reduced by the
insurance proceeds received and any other amount recovered, if any, by the
Indemnified Party with respect to any Damages; provided, however, that an
Indemnified Party shall not be subject to an obligation to pursue an insurance
claim relating to any Damages for which indemnification is sought hereunder. If
any Indemnified Party shall have received any payment pursuant to this Section 8
with respect to any Damages and shall subsequently have received insurance
proceeds or other amounts with respect to such Damages, then such Indemnified
Party shall pay to the Indemnifying Party an amount equal to the difference (if
any) between (1) the sum of the amount of those insurance proceeds or other
amounts received and the amount of the payment by such Indemnifying Party
pursuant to this Section 8 with respect




                                      -37-


to such Damages and (2) the amount necessary to fully and completely indemnify
and hold harmless such Indemnified Party from and against such Damages;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, in no event will such Indemnified Party have any obligation
pursuant to this sentence to pay to such Indemnifying Party an amount greater
than the amount of the payment by such Indemnifying Party pursuant to this
Section 8 with respect to such Damages.

         8.5 INDEMNIFICATION PAYMENT. Upon the final determination of liability
and the amount of the indemnification payment under this Section 8, the
appropriate Party shall pay to the other in immediately available funds, within
thirty (30) business days after such determination, the amount of any claim for
indemnification made hereunder.

         8.6 SURVIVAL. The provisions of this Section 8 shall survive any
termination of this Agreement with respect to actions of the Parties during the
term of this Agreement. Each Indemnified Party's rights under this Section 8
shall not be deemed to have been waived or otherwise affected by such
Indemnified Party's waiver of the breach of any representation, warranty,
agreement or covenant contained in or made pursuant this Agreement, unless such
waiver expressly and in writing also waives any or all of the Indemnified
Party's right under this Section 8.

                                   SECTION 9 

                                   TERMINATION

         9.1 TERMINATION. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, this
Agreement may be terminated as follows:

                    (a) VERSICOR VOLUNTARY TERMINATION. Versicor may terminate
this Agreement at any time by giving ninety (90) days written notice of its
intention to terminate.

                    (b) LILLY TERMINATION FOR CAUSE. Lilly may terminate this
Agreement solely with respect to a particular country and as to the applicable
formulation (I.E., IV or oral) for Versicor's uncured breach of its obligations
of Reasonable Diligence in such country with respect to such formulation of the
Product as provided in Section 6.7.




                                      -38-


                  (c) TERMINATION FOR BANKRUPTCY. If either Versicor or 
Lilly (1) makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; (2) files 
an insolvency petition in bankruptcy; (3) petitions for or acquiesces in the 
appointment of any receiver, trustee or similar officer to liquidate or 
conserve its business or any substantial part of its assets; (4) commences 
under the laws of any jurisdiction any proceeding involving its insolvency, 
bankruptcy, reorganization, adjustment of debt, dissolution, liquidation or 
any other similar proceeding for the release of financially distressed 
debtors; or (5) becomes a Party to any proceeding or action of the type 
described above in (3) or (4) and such proceeding or action remains 
undismissed or unstayed for a period of more than sixty (60) days, then the 
other Party may by written notice terminate this Agreement in its entirety 
with immediate effect.

                  (d) TERMINATION FOR DEFAULT.

                  (1) Versicor and Lilly each shall have the right (except as 
otherwise provided in Section 6.7) to terminate this Agreement with respect 
to the Product for default upon the other Party's uncured failure to comply 
in any material respect with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. At 
least sixty (60) days prior to any such termination for default, the Party 
seeking to so terminate shall give the other written notice of its intention 
to terminate this Agreement in accordance with the provisions of this Section 
9.1(d), which notice shall set forth the default(s) which form the basis for 
such termination. If the defaulting Party fails to correct such default(s) 
within sixty (60) days after receipt of notification, or if the same cannot 
reasonably be corrected or remedied within sixty (60) days, then if the 
defaulting Party has not commenced curing said default(s) within said sixty 
(60) days and is not diligently pursuing completion of same, then such Party 
immediately may terminate this Agreement with respect to such Product.

                  (2) This Section 9.1 (d) shall not be an exclusive remedy
and shall not be in lieu of any other remedies available to a Party hereto for
any default hereunder on the part of the other Party.

                  (e) RIGHTS UPON TERMINATION.

                  (1) LILLY RIGHTS UPON TERMINATION. In the event of 
termination of the entire Agreement by Lilly under Sections 9.1(b) or 9.1(d) 
or termination by




                                      -39-


Versicor under Section 9.1(a), payment by Versicor to Lilly of all amounts
actually earned and accrued by Lilly but remaining unpaid as of the effective
date of such termination shall be immediately accelerated and all such amounts
shall be immediately due and payable by Versicor to Lilly on the date of
termination. Additionally, the license granted by Lilly to Versicor shall
immediately terminate and the ownership of the Product Data Package shall
immediately revert back to Lilly with no further notice required on Lilly's
behalf. Consequently, notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement
to the contrary, (A) Lilly shall have the right, directly or indirectly, to
make, use, sell, offer to sell and import the Product in the Territory and (B)
Versicor shall have no further rights in the Product whatsoever.

                    (2) VERSICOR RIGHTS UPON TERMINATION UPON DEFAULT BY LILLY.
In the event of termination of this Agreement by Versicor under Section 9.1(d),
Versicor shall (A) have no further obligation to make any payments under
Sections 3.2 and 3.3 of the Agreement as of the effective date of the
termination, and (B) retain all of the rights under the licenses granted by
Lilly to Versicor hereunder with respect to the Product.

                    (3) ASSISTANCE FOLLOWING TERMINATION. In the event of 
termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.1(b), 9.1(c) or 9.1(d) 
and if Lilly so requests, Versicor shall provide reasonable assistance to 
Lilly for a period of ninety (90) days following the date of notice of 
termination. Additionally, Versicor shall (and shall cause any subcontractors 
under contract with Versicor) grant to Lilly an exclusive license (but solely 
in the country or countries where such termination occurred) to all Versicor 
Improvements related to Product, including but not limited to, all applicable 
regulatory files and filings related to the Product and any patents or patent 
applications encompassing Versicor Improvements, solely to develop, make, 
have made, use, sell, offer to sell and import the Product in such countries.

                  (f) CONTINUING OBLIGATIONS. Except as otherwise provided 
above, termination of this Agreement for any reason shall not relieve the 
Parties of any obligation accruing prior thereto and shall be without 
prejudice to the rights and remedies of either Party with respect to any 
antecedent breach of the provisions of this Agreement. Without limiting the 
generality of the foregoing, no termination of this Agreement, whether by 
lapse of time or otherwise, shall serve to terminate the obligations of the 
Parties hereto under Sections 2.1(b), 3.4, 3.5 (only in the event Versicor 
terminates under Section 9.1(d)), 3.6, 3.7, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 7.1 (only in the 
event Versicor terminates under Section




                                      -40-


9.1(d), 7.2 (only in the event Versicor terminates under Section 9.1(d)), all 
of Section 8, subsections 9.1, 9.2, all of Section 10 and such other Sections 
as by their nature should survive, and such obligations shall survive any 
such termination.

         9.2 BIOLOGICAL MATERIAL. Upon termination of this Agreement, whether by
Lilly or Versicor, Versicor shall cease all use of any Biological Materials and
shall, upon request, return or destroy (at Lilly's option) all Biological
Materials under its control or in its possession within sixty (60) days and
provide a written warranty by an Officer of Versicor that the Biological
Materials have been returned or destroyed.

                                   SECTION 10 

                                  MISCELLANEOUS

         10.1 SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS. This Agreement shall be binding upon and
shall inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors

the event Versicor assigns this Agreement to a third party or a third party
acquires substantially all of the assets or greater than forty percent (40%)
outstanding shares of, or merges with, Versicor ("Change of Control"), as the
case may be, Lilly shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate
the Versicor Co-Promotion Right in Section 2.7(g). Notwithstanding the
foregoing, Lilly may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement to
an Affiliate.
