An Other News to Note item in the Oct. 21, 2002, issue of BioWorld Today incorrectly reported that the U.S. Patent Office declared an interference on an issued patent, when in fact it was on a patent application, No. 08/346,270, assigned to the University of Massachusetts. Hybridon Inc. is the exclusive licensee of the patent.
