Date:9/15/2008

Genetic Variations Identify Predisposition to More Severe Knee

Osteoarthritis

WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (Amex: ILI), announced today that Kenneth Kornman, Ph.D., the company's Chief Scientific Officer, will present important new research findings on the genetics of osteoarthritis (OA) at the 2008 World Congress on Osteoarthritis, sponsored by the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI). The 2008 World Congress on Osteoarthritis takes place Sept. 18-21, 2008, at the Rome Marriott Park Hotel in Rome, Italy.

Dr. Kornman will give an oral presentation, titled, "IL-1 RN Polymorphisms are Associated with Radiographic Severity in Osteoarthritis," on Sunday, Sept. 21, 2008 in the Tiziano B room at 9:50 a.m. CEST. In addition, new findings by Interleukin Genetics and collaborators, titled "Genetic Markers Associated with Generalized Osteoarthritis," will be presented during the poster session all day on Friday, Sept. 19, 2008, in the Foyer Tiziano room.

Dr. Kornman, Interleukin Genetics' Chief Scientific Officer and one of the authors of the two presentations, commented, "The new findings are based on a genetic test in development by Interleukin Genetics. The genetic test appears to identify knee OA patients who are likely to develop more severe joint destruction as they age. This information should be valuable in guiding the medical management of high risk patients and could be especially helpful in directing use of potential future disease modifying drugs for OA to achieve optimal benefit."

The new genetic findings are the result of research collaborations with Dr. Steven Abramson and Dr. Mukundan Attur of the New York
