Interleukin Genetics, Alticor Expand Genetic Test License Agreement

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Interleukin Genetics said today it has expanded an agreement with Alticor division Access Business Group giving both companies increased access to genetic tests that the two companies have developed together under research programs.
Under the agreement, the existing license that ABG holds to Interleukin Genetics’ intellectual property will become non-exclusive, the company said.
