LONDON, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Molecular Vision today announces that discussions with Acrongenomics on the proposed acquisition of Molecular Vision have now ceased. Acrongenomics has been unable to complete on the terms and timetable agreed. Given this, the Board of Molecular Vision believes that the best interests of the company are served by bringing these discussions to a conclusion. Acrongenomics remains a significant shareholder in Molecular Vision, having recently acquired a 10.9% stake in the company, and work continues on the joint development agreement between the two companies that commenced in March 2006.
