BOZEMAN, Mont., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- LigoCyte Pharmaceuticals, Inc., today announced a strategic partnership with Biogen Idec (Nasdaq: BIIB) to develop therapies targeting CD103 for the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases including potential respiratory, gastrointestinal, and autoimmune indications.
