Groundbreaking Study Proves Personalized Diet Based on Genetics Leads to Significant Advances in Long Term Weight Management and Blood Glucose Levels
Date:10/22/2007

BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Sciona, Inc., a leader in the science of nutrigenetics, today announced the results of a pivotal study published by Nutrition Journal, which demonstrates substantial advances in long term weight management and blood glucose levels as a result of personalizing patients' diets based on their genetic information (nutrigenetics). In the first study to demonstrate the efficacy of applying nutrigenetics to long term weight management, researchers found significant improvement in long term (more than 300 days) weight management for individuals whose nutrient requirements were tailored to individual variations in the genes known to affect nutrient metabolism and transport. Each subject's genetic profile was developed by the use of Sciona's Mycellf Kit.

The comprehensive 3 year study examined 93 individuals with a history of weight loss failures. In an effort to answer whether the application of genetic information could improve sustained weight management, one test group was genetically screened for (24) separate variants in (19) individual genes specifically know to be related to metabolism. A second control group did not receive the genetic screening. The groups were matched on characteristics such as age, gender, frequency of clinical visits and Body Mass Index (BMI), during their initial clinical visit. After monitoring patients between the fixed ranges of 100 - 300 days, the BMI and the fasting blood glucose levels were compared and contrasted within the test population.

Results conclusively showed that after 300 days, individuals in the genetic testing group were more likely to have maintained weight reduction and reduced glucose levels than those of the control group, which had not been genetically screened. In the final analysis, 73% of those in the nutrigenetic group maintained weight reduction compared to only 32% of those in the control group. Among patients with a fasting blood glucose of greater than 10
