WALTHAM, MA, Nov 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (OTCQB:ILIU) today announced financial and operational results for its fiscal third quarter of 2015, ended September 30, 2015.

“Since joining Interleukin Genetics in April, I have been focused on developing a strategic and operational plan that will lay the groundwork for driving market adoption of PerioPredict┬«, our genetic test that identifies individuals with a life-long predisposition to over-produce inflammation. Elevated inflammation is implicated in numerous chronic diseases.” said Mark Carbeau, CEO of Interleukin Genetics.

“We are encouraged by the reception of our enhanced positioning that outlines medical value for managing inflammation through practical dental interventions”, Mr. Carbeau continued. “Medical studies now document the role of systemic inflammation in driving serious chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and periodontitis. Studies also document that preventive dental care and treatment of periodontitis lower systemic inflammatory burden, and that these dental treatments provide substantial medical cost savings for patients with certain chronic diseases. PerioPredict helps identify and engage high risk patients who will benefit from these interventions. Our demand generation efforts are being focused initially on large employers and insurance carriers; we continue to make progress on both fronts.” Continue reading Interleukin Genetics Reports Q3 2015 Results

“The tragedy of her death is compounded by the fact that her short life ended not by illness or accident, but we believe by an act of violence in the very place where she should have felt safest, in her home.

This child, whose very name means beauty, was murdered.” – Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said. He declined to comment on the motive or manner of death.
