Through the partnership, iMBP is granted access to the full OmniAb platform including OmniRat, OmniMouse, OmniFlic and OmniChicken in their drug discovery efforts.
Pursuant to the agreement, Ligand will fund and facilitate selected early antibody discovery activities and will in return receive an ownership position in iMBP.
Taking the IMBP as a benchmark, the rest 20 were predictor variables divided into sociodemographic, socioeconomic, sociocultural, individual difference and environmental factors.

One useful framework for understanding explanatory processes of information seeking on behavior is the IMBP (Fishbein & Ajzen, 2010).
Although the IMBP in its current form does not include an explicit role for information seeking, one aim of the current study was to begin to integrate these complementary literatures and to further communication theory by providing empirical evidence for direct effects of information seeking on intention, as well as indirect effects of information seeking on intention, accounting for general media exposure.
Previous research has found a statistically significant association between drug intentions and PBC, the third determinant of intention outlined in the IMBP. However, this effect is generally the weakest among the three determinants (e.g., Fishbein et al., 2002).
Intention to engage in future drug use behavior was measured using items adapted from the Monitoring the Future National Survey Study (Johnston, O'Malley, Bachman, & Schulenberg, 2008, 2012) and modified following the standard approach for asking intentions questions in the IMBP (Fishbein & Ajzen, 2010) for time frame and behavior.
