Interleukin Genetics President and Chief Scientific Officer to Present at Immunotoxicology V Conference
Date:9/17/2007

WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics (Amex: ILI) today announced that its President and Chief Scientific Officer, Kenneth Kornman, DDS, PhD, will present at the Immunotoxicology V Conference on September 17-18, 2007 in Alexandria, VA. The conference will focus on innovative methods and applications for risk assessment in pharmaceutical development.

Among a group of presenters that includes industry regulators and some of the industry's leading researchers from major biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, Dr. Kornman will be discussing multiple ways in which genetic variations in innate immunity may influence drug responses, and be relevant to drug development. As one example, he will discuss how certain genetic variations influence biological drug responses in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

"Because of the critical role played by innate immunity in so many diseases, the potential for genetic variation to produce unexpected responses may be substantial," Dr. Kornman said. "We now know that genetic variations that regulate inflammatory responses make some individuals more responsive to a disease challenge but also more responsive to treatment. This information has great implications for drug development. We are currently using the genetic factors that control certain inflammatory responses to develop preventive and therapeutic products for genetically-targeted populations with common chronic diseases."
