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. Interleukin Genetics will gain the right to brand, market, sell, and distribute all genetic tests developed using existing and future intellectual property.
 
ABG also will continue to distribute the Heart Health and General Nutrition genetic tests under the Gensona brand name, and Interleukin Genetics will continue to have exclusive ownership of all of the inventions relating to genetic tests stemming from the two companies’ programs.
