Interleukin Genetics and Geisinger to Collaborate on Genetic Tests to Predict Weight Loss Success
Date:9/18/2008

WALTHAM, Mass. and DANVILLE, Pa., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (Amex: ILI), and Geisinger Health System, today announced a research collaboration to explore the role of genetics in obesity. The goal of the collaboration is to develop a series of genetic tests that will help physicians better understand an individual's inherited resistance to weight loss and, more specifically, gauge a patient's likelihood of success with diet and other weight loss techniques.

Geisinger and Interleukin Genetics will engage in a case-control retrospective study involving the analysis of DNA to better understand genetic links to obesity. The study will focus exclusively on variations of perilipin, interleukin 1 and a select number of other genes.

"We are pleased to be working with Geisinger to develop an accurate and affordable genetic test as a predictor of weight loss success," commented Lewis H. Bender, Chief Executive Officer of Interleukin Genetics. "This relationship allows our scientists to build on Geisinger's extensive clinical expertise and biobank."

"We are excited to be working with Interleukin Genetics and view our collaboration with them as a way to capitalize on our integrated health system and electronic infrastructure to conduct research in new ways," said David Carey, Ph.D., Associate Chief Research Officer of Geisinger.
