Interleukin Genetics and Metagenics Initiate Research Collaboration
Date:5/10/2011

WALTHAM, Mass. and GIG HARBOR, Wash., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (OTCQB: ILIU) and Metagenics, Inc. today announced that they have entered into a research collaboration to identify predictive biomarkers combinations for use with Metagenics Compound Meta-060, which is a proprietary and patented formulation of tetrahydro iso-alpha acids derived from hops, in development for weight management. A key aim of the collaboration is to investigate if genetic variations identified by Interleukin Genetics are beneficial to improving weight loss and maintenance of weight loss in adults using Meta-060. Metagenics will be funding the clinical and genetic research.

"We're pleased to enter this collaboration with Metagenics, which further reinforces Interleukin Genetics' commitment to personalized medicine in the field of weight management," said Lewis H. Bender, chief executive officer, Interleukin Genetics. "We believe this research could create useful prognostic tests that can be used with treatments such as the Metagenics compound to better manage an individual's weight. We also expect that the data generated from this study will provide a new tool in the development of improved treatments for obesity, a clear unmet medical need in personalizing disease management."

"We are excited to be working with Interleukin Genetics on this important program. The results Metagenics and Interleukin Genetics have reported in our respective areas of expertise made joint collaboration between our two companies a natural fit," said Jeffrey Bland, Ph.D., chief scientific officer, Metagenics. "Today's partnership underscores our corporate goal to continue to develop novel compounds and diagnostic tools that will significantly help to advance important research in the area of weight management."
