          THIS AGREEMENT is entered into and effective as of the 16th day of
February, 2001, by and between CytRx Corporation, a Delaware corporation, having
a principal office at 154 Technology Parkway, Technology Park/Atlanta, Norcross,

corporation, having a principal office at 8857 Bond Street, Overland Park,
Kansas  66214 ("Licensee").

          WHEREAS, Licensor is the owner or licensee of, and has the right to
grant licenses to, certain existing proprietary know how, technical information
and patentable subject matter, including certain patents owned by Emory
University ("Emory") and listed on Schedule "A" hereto (the "Licensed Patents"),
all generally relating to growth promotion in poultry and swine (collectively
the "Technology");

          WHEREAS, Licensee desires an exclusive license to make, have made,
develop, use, market and/or sell the methods and compositions covered by the
Technology for non-human use;

          NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual grants and undertakings
and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency thereof
hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

          1.  License Grant.  Licensor grants to Licensee a worldwide,
              -------------
irrevocable, exclusive right and license (the "License") to make, have made,
develop, use, market, sell, import and/or export the methods and compositions
covered by (a) the Licensed Patents; (b) any and all U.S. or foreign patents or
applications covering the subject matter of the Technology; (c) any continuation
and/or divisional patents or applications of (a) or (b); and (d) any reissues,
extensions or reexaminations of (a), (b) or (c) for non-human use and to
otherwise use the Technology in conjunction therewith.  Licensor shall provide
Licensee with the technical information, know how and technical assistance
reasonably necessary to allow Licensee to exploit the Technology for non-human
use.

      2.  Consideration.
          -------------

          a.  Initial Payment.  Licensee shall pay to Licensor a one-time single
              ---------------
and fixed lump sum initial payment of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) upon
execution of this Agreement in consideration for the License.

          b.  Milestone Payments.  Licensee shall pay to Licensor a one-time
              ------------------
single and fixed lump sum milestone payment of One Hundred Thousand Dollars
($100,000) upon Licensee's obtaining regulatory approval in the United States to
market and sell methods or compositions covered by the claims of a Licensed
Patents for non-human use.  Licensee shall be responsible for obtaining any such
regulatory approval, but is not required to seek or obtain any such approval.
No milestone payments shall be due for any non-U.S. approvals.

          c.  Royalty.  Licensee shall pay to Licensor a royalty equal to five
              -------
percent (5 %) of Net Sales of compositions covered by the claims of a Licensed
Patent (a "Licensed
<PAGE>

Product") in any country in which a Licensed Patent is valid and in force. "Net
Sales" shall mean the total gross amount received by Licensee for sales of
Licensed Products less (i) trade, quantity and cash discounts actually allowed,
(ii) credits or allowances given for rejection or return of previously sold
Licensed Products, billing errors or retroactive price reductions, (iii) sales
taxes or other governmental charges levied directly on the sale, transportation
or delivery of the Licensed Products and borne by the Licensee, and (iv)
transportation and related insurance costs actually invoiced. Licensor shall be
solely responsible for payment of any royalty and other amounts due to Emory
resulting from Licensee's performance under this Agreement. During the term of
this Agreement, Licensee shall be responsible for payment of the royalties owed
by CytRx to BASF Corporation ("BASF") under the May 22, 1986 Agreement between
CytRx and BASF, as amended by letter agreement dated February 15, 1990 ("the
BASF Agreement") resulting from Licensee's performance under this Agreement.
Royalties shall be paid during the term of the Agreement on a quarterly basis,
on the last day of March, June, September and December of each year. Payment
shall be accompanied by a report verifying the amount due. If no sales are made
during a quarter, neither the royalty, nor the report, shall be due for that
quarter.

          3.  No Development Requirements.  Licensee shall have no obligation to
              ---------------------------
make, have made, develop, use, market, sell, import or export any methods or
compositions covered by or relating to the Technology.

          4.  Patent Maintenance.  Licensor shall maintain the Licensed Patents
              ------------------
in full force and effect through the maximum term available for each Licensed
Patent.  Licensee shall pay to Licensor an annual maintenance fee of One
Thousand Dollars ($1,000) to be applied to Licensor's costs in maintaining the
Licensed Patents.  It is understood that Licensor is obligated to pay any and
all fees associated with maintenance of the Licensed Patents in excess of the
amount paid to Licensor by Licensee pursuant to this Section 3.

          5.  Improvements. Licensee shall own any improvements or modifications
              ------------
developed by or on behalf of Licensee, relating to the Technology, whether or
not patentable.

          6.  Patent Infringement.  In the event that any infringement of the
              -------------------
Licensed Patents or other Technology rights comes to the attention of either
party, such party shall promptly notify the other party of the infringement.
Licensor shall have the option, but not the obligation, to take steps to abate
the infringement by litigation or otherwise at its sole expense.  Should
Licensor opt not to take, or to cease, any steps to abate such infringement,
Licensee shall have the option to take or continue steps to abate such
infringement at its sole cost or expense, and Licensor agrees to be added as a
legally indispensable party, if necessary.  Licensor and Licensee agree to
assist the other as reasonably necessary in any steps taken to abate the
infringement.

               -------
billing or otherwise under this Agreement shall be directed to the respective
parties at the addresses identified in the first paragraph hereof (or such other

          11.  Waiver.  No waiver by either party of any non-performance or
               ------
violation by the other party of any covenants, obligations or agreements of such
other party hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent violation
