Interleukin Genetics' Enhanced General Nutrition Test Report Outlines an Individual's Susceptibility to Poor Vitamin B Metabolism and Oxidative Stress

WALTHAM, Mass., March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: ILI) announced today that it has created a new, detailed report format and information package for its General Nutrition genetic risk assessment test that enables easy understanding of an individual's genetic pattern as it relates to vitamin B metabolism and response to oxidative stress and free radicals. The test can identify one or more gene variations that may negatively affect an individual's ability to process necessary nutrients, while highlighting nutritional modifications that may be helpful in improving an individual's overall health and wellness.

The Interleukin Genetics General Nutrition test configuration is based on scientific analysis that identifies DNA variations in two genes important to B-vitamin utilization and four genes important in managing oxidative stress. Individuals that show suboptimal variations of the genes tested for B-vitamin metabolism may experience greater health benefits by adding more vitamin B to their diet. In addition, results indicating suboptimal ability to manage oxidative stress suggest that an individual may be at increased risk for cell damage. Both B-vitamins and oxidative stress play important roles in overall health and wellness and have been linked to risk for certain diseases and cancers.

"Evidence-based genetic test developers have a responsibility to individuals to help them make sense of their genetic findings as they relate to specific health and wellness concerns," said Lewis H. Bender, CEO, Interleukin Genetics. "We are pleased to have developed a user-friendly test and report package for general nutrition to help our customers navigate their risk factors and make nutritional and lifestyle decisions that may
