Interleukin Genetics Reports Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 11, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (OTCQB: ILIU) today announced financial and operational results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $0.5 million compared to $0.3 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase was primarily attributable to greater genetic test revenue as we experience positive growth.

Research and development expenses were $0.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $0.9 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease is primarily attributable to lower clinical trial expenses, compensation and patent portfolio related expenses.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $1.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $1.7 million for same period in the prior year. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower product development and advertising costs associated with our Inherent Health™ brand of genetic tests incurred in the rollout of these tests in 2009 and lower administrative consulting and compensation expenses.

The Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $1.4 million, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2010, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $2.6 million, or $(0.08) per basic and diluted shares for the same period in the prior year. On September 30, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $5.2 million.

"We are pleased to show continued revenue driven by our Weight Management genetic test and sales of our new Wellness Select combination product," said Lewis H. Bender, CEO, Interleukin Genetics, Inc. "We are encouraged by the data from clinical programs we have undertaken in the fields of obesity, osteoarthritis and periodontal disease, and look forward to generating results for increased distribution and insurance reimbursement for certain genetic tests."  

3rd Quarter Clinical Research HighlightsPeriodontal DiseaseThe Company announced in August 2010 it would begin a 4,000 patient landmark clinical study with the University of Michigan and Renaissance Health Service Corporation that will evaluate risk factors predictive of periodontal disease progression to tooth loss using a new version of Interleukin Genetics' PST genetic test.  The clinical study conduced with the University of Michigan and sponsored by Renaissance Health Services is using a large dental claims database and is designed to test whether risk factors, including genetic information, can guide more successful intervention and thus reduce the adverse outcomes of periodontal disease, such as tooth loss.  

OsteoarthritisThe Company announced in September 2010 findings with the Thurston Arthritis Research Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from a large clinical study to evaluate the role of genetic factors in osteoarthritis progression. The study showed patients with radiographic evidence of knee osteoarthritis who inherited a specific pattern of genetic variations in the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) gene were almost twice as likely to progress to severe disease as other patients and validated results from a previously announced clinical study. Results from the second study, which followed 1,154 patients for up to 11 years, were presented at the fall World Congress on Osteoarthritis in Brussels, Belgium.
