Interleukin Genetics Licenses its PST(R) Genetic Test to OralDNA Labs
Date:8/13/2008

er of OralDNA, commented, "We are very excited to be working with Interleukin Genetics and adding the PST(R) Genetic Test to our portfolio of diagnostic tests performed in our new U.S. based laboratory. We believe that by combining our MyPerioPath test, which identifies specific pathogenic bacteria causing an infection within the gum structure, with the PST(R) Genetic Test, we are providing the dental community with the proper tools to identify and treat periodontal disease. The combination of both tests creates a systematic way to track and maximize clinical outcomes for dental professionals and their patients. As we continue to understand the systemic link and risk factors associated with periodontal disease, it's important that we partner with companies who, like us, are focused on helping dental professionals identify and treat disease at its earliest onset."

About Periodontal Disease in the United States

Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Periodontal disease is usually first diagnosed by the patients' dentist. About a third of adults will have at least 3 to 4 teeth affected with moderate periodontal disease. Severe or rapidly progressing disease affects 5 - 15 percent of the population. There are over 160,000 dentists in the U.S. who frequently perform diagnostic (86 percent) and preventive (79 percent) procedures. Over half of the population visits a dentist, usually twice a year. As a result, the average dental office sees approximately 4,000 patients each year and many of which will go on to develop periodontal disease. The U.S. dental market is valued at $70 - $96 billion annually with the average patient spending about $560 per year, over half of this on diagnostic and preventive procedures. Of the 128 million patients who visit a dentist
