Introducing deCODEme Cardio(TM) and deCODEme Cancer(TM)
Date:1/18/2009

REYKJAVIK, Iceland, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Through deCODEme(TM), the world's first retail genome analysis service, deCODE genetics (Nasdaq: DCGN) today announced the launch of the first focused genetic scans for assessing personal risk of several major cardiovascular diseases and common cancers. deCODEme Cardio(TM), which detects genetic risk factors for heart attack, stroke and atrial fibrillation, peripheral artery disease (PAD), and several other conditions, is offered at an introductory price of $195. deCODEme Cancer measures genetic risk factors for prostate, lung, bladder, skin and colorectal cancers, as well as the common form of breast cancer, at an introductory price of $225. Both can be ordered as a bundle for $350. Detailed information on what the scans measure and how to order can be found at www.decodeme.com/cardio and www.decodeme.com/cancer.

"The common diseases, including cardiovascular conditions such as heart attack and stroke, as well as the common forms of cancer in women and men, result from both genetic and environmental risk factors. We are all familiar with many of the environmental and lifestyle factors that impact our risk of these diseases, and we know that addressing these risk factors can lower our risk of disease. Building on our discoveries of inherited risk factors for these diseases, our goal is to help individuals understand the genetic side of the equation. This is empowering information, that may enable people, on their own or working with their doctors, to make more informed decisions to protect their health. In an age when we are encouraged to take more responsibility for our health, we believe that we should all be able to use understanding of our genome to do
