Medicago, a Canadian vaccines company, has out-licensed China rights to its pandemic and seasonal flu vaccines to Philip Morris Products, the cigarette maker, in a $12 million deal. PMP has owned a 40% stake in Medicago since 2008. In addition, Medicago signed an exclusive license for a portfolio of plant-based protein development technologies from PMP.
