Interleukin Genetics, Inc., a health company, develops genetic tests to provide information to manage health and specific health risks. The company’s business focuses on personalized health, by providing genetic tests that are actionable and provides clinical value. Its tests are made available through healthcare providers, through marketing partners or, for some of its tests, directly to end users. The company has patents covering the use of certain gene variations and specific combinations of gene variations for a number of common chronic diseases and conditions. The company’s genetic tests that are being commercialized are: PerioPredict: This genetic test analyzes genetic variations associated with inflammation and identifies individuals who are at increased risk for more severe periodontal disease. In 2013, the company announced the introduction of PerioPredict, its next-generation version of the PST genetic test. The genetic test utilizes an expansion of previous genetic markers that cover all major ethnic groups. Weight Management Genetic Test: This test determines whether a low fat, low carbohydrate or balanced diet may be best and whether normal or vigorous exercise is needed to most lose existing body fat. This test is marketed under the company’s Inherent Health brand. The company’s Weight Management Genetic Test helps take the guesswork out of finding an effective diet and exercise solution by revealing actionable steps to achieve weight goals based on genetics. Bone Health Genetic Test: This test is designed to identify whether an individual is more likely to be susceptible to spine fractures and low bone mineral density associated with osteoporosis. This test is marketed under the company’s Inherent Health brand. The test identifies a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in each of three genes involved in processes that affect bone; estrogen receptor alpha (ER1 Xba1), vitamin D receptor, and interleukin-1 (IL-1). Heart Health Genetic Test: This test is designed to identify genetic predisposition to excess inflammation, which is a risk factor for heart attack. This test is marketed under the company’s Inherent Health brand. The test identifies three SNPs in two genes involved in inflammation, IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta. Certain IL-1 variations are associated with increased inflammation. Nutritional Needs Genetic Test: This test is designed to identify DNA variations in genes crucial to B-vitamin metabolism and the ability to manage oxidative stress. This test is marketed under the company’s Inherent Health brand. The test identifies the presence or absence of human genotypic markers methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase and transcobalamin II involved in vitamin B metabolism and markers superoxide dismutase 2, glutathione S-transferase 1 deletions, paraoxonase 1, X-ray repair cross complementing group 1 in response to oxidative stress. Wellness Select Genetic Test: This allows buyers to purchase any combination of Inherent Health genetic tests. This is marketed under the company’s Inherent Health brand. The company has an amended and restated preferred participation agreement with Renaissance Health Services Corporation, the exclusive distributor of the Delta Dental brand in eight states, with respect to reimbursement for its PerioPredict test. The company markets its Inherent Health brand of genetic assessment tests primarily through its commercial relationships with Alticor affiliated companies, such as Amway. Genetic Tests The company focuses its research, development and commercialization efforts on identifying combinations of SNP variations for which there is biological understanding for certain uses associated with inflammation or metabolic disease. The company worked with various universities, including the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom to identify various SNPs and other factors that influence the body’s inflammatory response. Its scientific advisory board includes Sir Gordon Duff, one of the pioneers in the understanding of the role that genetics plays in inflammatory disease pathways. In addition, the company has conducted clinical studies for various indicatio
