Date:9/23/2009

WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (NYSE Amex: ILI) announced today top-line positive results from a retrospective clinical study on weight management using patients who participated in a diet study previously reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The new clinical study demonstrated that individuals following diets matched to their genotype, as determined by the Interleukin Genetics Weight Management Genetic Test, showed statistically significant greater weight loss and other benefits at all time points (2 months, 6 months and 12 months) when compared to individuals on diets not matched to their genotype.

Study Design

Overweight/obese premenopausal women participated in a one-year weight loss study comparing four weight loss diets: very low carbohydrate, low carbohydrate/high protein, low fat and very low fat. Beginning in 2008, participants who completed the trial were invited by e-mail and postal mail to provide DNA samples by a simple cheek swab. Of those participants, 145 responded. Genotyping was accomplished in 101 Caucasian participants who were categorized using the Interleukin Genetics Weight Management Genetic Test into three pre-determined composite genotype patterns of individuals who are more likely to respond to calorie reduction diets that are: a) low fat, b) low carbohydrate, or c) balanced in macronutrients. The primary endpoint analysis compared weight loss for women who were on a diet that was consistent with their genotype category to those individuals on diets not suitable for their genetic pattern.

Key Data

Highlights from the studies include:
