Interleukin Genetics to Present at the 13th International Conference on Periodontal Research
Date:6/3/2008

Dr. Kenneth Kornman to Discuss Periodontal Inflammation and

Gene-Environment Interactions

WALTHAM, Mass., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (Amex: ILI), announced today that Dr. Kenneth Kornman, Chief Scientific Officer, will present at the 13th International Conference on Periodontal Research (ICPR) on June 6, 2008 in Ljubljana, Slovenia on the genetic and environmental factors that control inflammation differences among individuals. The ICPR meeting has been held approximately every three years since 1969 to bring together the world's leaders in periodontal research to reassess the current knowledge in the field and to identify new research direction, to improve the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of periodontal diseases.

Periodontitis is a bacterially-induced chronic inflammatory disease that causes destruction of bone and other tissues that support the teeth. Severe periodontitis, that usually leads to loss of multiple teeth, is found in approximately 8-13 percent of the adult population. The presence and severity of periodontitis have been associated with an increased risk for other important inflammatory conditions, including pre-term births, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and certain cancers.

WHO: Dr. Kenneth Kornman, Chief Scientific Officer of Interleukin

Genetics

WHERE: 13th International Conference on Periodontal Research (ICPR) in

Ljubljana, Slovenia

WHEN: Friday, June 6, 2008 at 9:45-10:30 GMT

WHAT: Approximately 30-60 percent of the severity of periodontal disease

is determined by genetics. Interleukin Genetics developed and

markets the PST(R) genetic test to help identify individuals at

increased risk for severe periodontal disease and complications

from dental implants. This test helps dentists guide the

management of their patients' periodontal disease to avoid

complications of severe periodontitis.
