The animal nutrition companies Alltech and Cenzone have settled their patent infringement lawsuit.
The parties settled their dispute under confidential terms, with Cenzone agreeing to pay an undisclosed sum to Alltech.
The settlement concludes over 18 months of federal litigation and was reached shortly after the United States District Court for the Southern District of California ruled that Cenzone’s Microbond product infringed Alltech’s US Patent No. 6,045,834, directed to compositions and methods for combating mycotoxins in animal feed.
The patented composition was discovered by Alltech’s scientists about ten years ago.
