The agreement grants the partner permission to carry out its own evaluation of Imaxio's IMX313 technology. Depending on the results of the evaluation, the agreement allows the option of a license agreement to use IMX313 in developing vaccines for a total of four animal health indications. The name of the partner and the technical and financial terms of the agreement are not disclosed.

"This new agreement with a major player in veterinary pharmacy is a further boost to our confidence in the IMX313 technology, following  Imaxio signing the license option with Merial  last December. The IMX313 technology is crucial to our continued in-house development of vaccines for tuberculosis, flu, Staphylococcus aureus and veterinary cryptosporidiosis," said Alexandre Le Vert, CEO of Imaxio.
