Date:2/3/2009

n all do, working on our own and with our doctors, to reduce our risk and to stay healthier longer," said Kari Stefansson, CEO of deCODE.

deCODEme(TM) is the world's first retail genome analysis service. The full genome Complete Scan scan and the Cardio and Cancer scans build on deCODE's global leadership in the discovery of common variations in the sequence of the human genome conferring increased risk of common diseases. deCODEme(TM) scans detect the single-letter genetic variations (called SNPs) with the biggest impact on disease risk. These are SNPs validated in large-scale studies by deCODE as well as leading academic research institutions. DNA analysis is conducted in deCODE's own CLIA-registered laboratory, one of the largest genotyping facilities in the world. The deCODEme Cardio(TM) scan measures 8 SNPs associated with the risk of heart attack, stroke and atrial fibrillation, intracranial and abdominal aortic aneurysm, and venous thromboembolism. This month deCODE is offering deCODE Cardio for $100, with promotional prices on all its deCODEme scans. These prices are valid through February 28, 2009, details at http://www.decodeme.com.

When you order a deCODEme(TM) scan you create your own username and password, and are sent a simple cheek swab which you use and then return to us. We extract DNA from your sample, analyze SNPs across your genome according to which scan you have ordered, and then post your results to your secure online profile. Your results present your relative risk of a given disease compared to the general population, as well as your absolute lifetime risk, which is the percentage likelihood that an individual will develop a disease in their lifetime. The results also explain what other risk factors interact with genetic risk to increase or decrease the likelihood of developing a given disease, as well as how subscribers may wish to follo
