   By Melodie Warner 

Illumina Inc. (>> Illumina, Inc.) said Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (>> Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd (ADR)) will be the exclusive distributor of the verifi prenatal test in Israel under a five-year agreement.

Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Illumina paid $350 million in February to buy Verinata Health Inc., which gave it access to Verinata's verifi prenatal test, the broadest non-invasive prenatal test currently available for high-risk pregnancies.

The company said the MOR Institute for Medical Data Ltd., through its relationship with Teva, will provide the verifi test to customers of Clalit Health Services who are at high risk of having a fetus with a chromosomal abnormality.

The MOR Institute will also establish a 9,000-patient clinical outcomes registry to collect performance data and will share the data with Verinata.

Illumina said the patient registry developed through this collaboration will be the largest and most extensive of its kind.

Illumina shares closed Friday at $74.84 and were inactive premarket. The stock is up 35% this year.
