                                       6

 
the purchase order. Supplier shall not be obligated to deliver Components
ordered prior to sixty (60) days after the applicable order is placed; however,
Supplier agrees that it will use Reasonable Efforts to meet any earlier delivery
date reasonably requested by Purchaser. To the extent any purchase order,
invoice or acknowledgment form used by Supplier or Purchaser contains any
provisions additional or contrary to the provisions of this Agreement, such
additional or contrary provision shall have no force or effect and the terms of
this Agreement shall control. In addition, all such orders shall comply with the
other requirements of this Article 2. The total amount of Components ordered by
Purchaser during a particular calendar quarter shall not in any event be less
than one hundred percent (100%) of the amount of each such Component that was
forecasted to be ordered for such quarter in the most recent forecast provided
to Supplier, as set forth in Section 2.2 above, unless Supplier otherwise agrees
in writing. In addition, Supplier shall not be obligated to supply any amounts
in such order that are in excess of one hundred ten percent (110%) of the amount
of the particular Component that was forecasted in the most recent binding
forecast to be ordered for such quarter; however, Supplier agrees that it will
use Reasonable Efforts to supply such additional amounts. The Supplier shall use
Reasonable Efforts to deliver the Components ordered in compliance with this
Article 2. The Supplier shall immediately notify Purchaser in writing if
Supplier determines that Supplier will not be able to supply a material amount
of the most recent orders and/or forecasts of orders for any Component. Shipment
and delivery of Components ordered hereunder shall be in accordance with Section
2.4.

Supplier shall use Reasonable Efforts to replace the nonconforming Components,
at no additional cost to Purchaser. If Supplier reasonably disputes Purchaser's
conclusion that such Components do not meet the applicable specifications,
Supplier shall use Reasonable Efforts to replace such shipment of Components to
Purchaser, at Purchaser's expense. If Supplier disagrees with Purchaser's
determination that the rejected shipment did not meet the applicable
specifications, a sample of the rejected shipment shall be submitted to an
independent, qualified Third Party laboratory that is mutually acceptable and
selected by the Parties promptly in good faith. Such laboratory shall determine
whether the rejected Components meet the applicable specifications, and such
laboratory's determination shall be final and determinative for purposes of this
Agreement. The Party against whom the laboratory rules shall bear all costs of
the laboratory testing. If the laboratory rules that the shipment of Components
failed to meet the applicable specifications, then at Purchaser's choice, the
price paid by Purchaser for such nonconforming shipment shall be reimbursed to
Purchaser (provided Purchaser paid for such shipment) or Components meeting the
applicable specifications shall be shipped. If the laboratory rules that the
Components do not meet the applicable specifications, and if Supplier is unable
to produce conforming Components, any sums actually paid therefore shall be
refunded to Purchaser with interest. At such time, the Parties will discuss in
good faith potential solutions to the supply problem. If the laboratory rules
the rejected shipment of Components met the applicable specifications, then
Purchaser shall accept such shipment (including all costs of shipping and
insurance). Shipments of Components not meeting the applicable specifications
may, at Supplier's option and expense, be returned to Supplier or destroyed by
Purchaser. If Supplier has acknowledged in writing that it is unable to produce
conforming Components, any sums actually paid therefor will be refunded. The
remedy of replacement or refund is available only if such nonconformance was not
caused by Purchaser's misuse, unauthorized modifications, neglect, improper
testing or improper storage, including without limitation storage at
inappropriate temperatures, of such shipment of Components.

     2.6  Manufacturing Modifications. If the laws of a country require
Supplier's established specifications for a particular Component or Components
to be modified in order for Purchaser to obtain Regulatory Approval of a Product
in such country, Purchaser will submit the matter to the Steering Committee for
discussion and proposed resolution. The Parties agree to negotiate in good faith
any proposed modifications to the specifications for such Component or
Components for such Products proposed by the Steering Committee. Any such
resolution of the Steering Committee must be agreed in writing by the Parties.

     2.7  Restrictions on Sale.  Kirin and its Affiliates shall not resell the
Separation Devices purchased pursuant to this Article 2 except as part of a
Kirin Product or a Licensed Dendreon Product, and shall not use Separation
Devices, Reagents or Dendreon Antigen for any purpose other than those purposes
permitted in this Agreement, the Collaborative License Agreement or the Research

and the terms of this Agreement shall control; (c) that Supplier shall not be
obligated to supply any amounts of a particular Component in such order more
than an agreed percentage of the unit quantity of such Component specified in
the binding forecast for the applicable time period; (d) that Purchaser's orders
for a Component may not be less than an agreed percentage of the binding
forecast for such Component for the applicable time period; and (e) that
Supplier will use Reasonable Efforts to provide additional amounts of a
particular Component beyond the foregoing limitation on Supplier's obligation to
supply, upon Purchaser's reasonable request, but consistent with Supplier's
other business obligations.

     3.5  Inventory.  The Supply Procedures shall also establish an inventory
mechanism for Components, which shall provide that: (a) within an agreed period
of time after the commercial launch of a particular Product, Supplier shall use
Reasonable Efforts to maintain an inventory of the Components in such Product at
least equal to the written forecast for purchases of such Product to be made
during an agreed number of months in the most recent forecast provided to
Supplier by Purchaser under the forecasting mechanism of the Supply Procedures;
(b) Purchaser shall maintain an inventory of all Components in accordance with
Purchaser's normal practices, and shall give Supplier quarterly updates of the
extent of such inventory; (c) Supplier's inventory of Components maintained

     3.7  Resolution of Supply Problems.

         (a)  If Supplier determines that Supplier will not be able to supply to
Purchaser a material amount of the most recent orders and/or binding forecasts
of orders for a particular Component submitted by Purchaser in accordance with
the applicable Supply Procedures, Supplier shall immediately notify Purchaser in
writing of such determination, which notice shall provide Purchaser with the
details on the extent of the expected shortfall of supply, the causes of such
inability to supply, and Supplier's proposed solution to the problem. Upon such
notice of a supply problem, or in any event upon Supplier's failure to satisfy,
within the delivery time frame specified by Purchaser consistent with the Supply
Procedures, a portion of the Components ordered by Purchaser in compliance with
this Agreement, (provided that such supply problem or failure cannot be
satisfied or addressed by Purchaser's and Supplier's existing inventories for
such Components and will cause an interruption in the supply of such Components
by Purchaser or its Affiliates to the commercial market for more than thirty
(30) days), Purchaser and Supplier will immediately meet and work together, in
good faith, to identify an appropriate resolution to the supply problem. The
Parties will discuss all appropriate means of resolving the problem, including
without limitation establishing an alternative source of supply for the affected
Components, creating a back-up manufacturing facility, or permitting Purchaser
to manufacture an agreed amount of Components to cover the shortfall in supply,
with Supplier continuing to supply an agreed amount of such Components. Any

agreement on such resolution. As part of such discussions, Supplier shall make a
firm commitment of the amount of the affected Components that Supplier will be
able to supply, on a monthly basis, during the period when such supply problem
with respect to such Components is expected to continue. Any agreed resolution
by the Parties to the supply problem will be set forth in a writing executed by
both Parties. If, despite good faith efforts, the senior management officials
are unable to reach agreement on the resolution of such supply problem within
twenty (20) days of their commencing such discussions, then at either Party's
immediate written request, the problem will be governed by the terms of Section
11.7 if it affects Components other than Kirin Antigen or Dendreon Antigen, and
by the terms of Section 3.7(c) if it affects Kirin Antigen or Dendreon Antigen.

         (c)  If there is a material supply problem with respect to Kirin
Antigen or Dendreon Antigen subject to the provisions of subsections 3.7(a) and
(b) above, and (i) the Parties have failed to reach agreement on the resolution
of such problem within the time frames set forth above by the end of the twenty

promptly in good faith. Such laboratory shall determine whether the rejected
Components (as applicable) meet the applicable specifications, and such
laboratory's determination shall be final and determinative for purposes of this
Agreement. The Party against whom the laboratory rules shall bear all costs of
the laboratory testing. If the laboratory rules that the shipment of Components
failed to meet the applicable specifications, at Purchaser's choice, the price
paid by Purchaser for such nonconforming shipment shall be reimbursed to
Purchaser (provided Purchaser paid for such shipment) or Components meeting the
applicable specifications shall be shipped to Purchaser by Supplier. If the
laboratory rules the rejected shipment of Components met the applicable
specifications, then Purchaser shall accept such shipment (including all costs
of shipping and insurance). Shipments of Components not meeting the applicable
specifications may, at Supplier's option and expense, be returned to Supplier or
destroyed by Purchaser. If Supplier has acknowledged in writing that it is
unable to produce conforming Components, any sums actually paid therefor will be
refunded with interest, and the supply problem will be resolved in accordance
with Section 3.7. The remedy of replacement or refund is available only if such

          (a)  Upon the written request of a Party (the 'Auditing Party'), and
not more than once in each calendar year, the other Party (the 'Audited Party')
shall permit an independent certified public accounting firm of nationally
recognized standing selected by the Auditing Party, and reasonably acceptable to
the Audited Party, at the Auditing Party's expense, to have access during normal

accounting firm under subsection (b) above that the Audited Party overstated its
Fully-Burdened Manufacturing Costs for a particular Component or Components, or
any specific aspect of the conclusion, then the Audited Party shall inform the
Auditing Party by written notice within thirty (30) days of receiving a copy of
the audit containing such conclusion, specifying in detail the reasons for the
Audited Party's disputing such conclusion. The Parties shall promptly thereafter
meet and negotiate in good faith a resolution to such dispute. In the event that
