Interleukin Genetics And Renaissance Health Service Corporation Enter Into A Preferred Participation Agreement For PST® Genetic Test

Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (OTCQB: ILIU), which is pioneering the use of genetic information for the prevention and improved management of certain chronic conditions of aging, today announced that it has entered into a three year Preferred Participation Agreement with Renaissance Health Service Corporation, and certain of its affiliates and subsidiaries, (collectively “RHSC”). Pursuant to the Agreement, RHSC has agreed to reimburse Interleukin a fixed price for each PST ® genetic test that it processes for a customer of RHSC.

Interleukin’s proprietary PST ® genetic risk panel for periodontal disease severity and tooth loss susceptibility addresses the need to identify individuals who are at greater risk of severe periodontitis, a primary cause of tooth loss.

“We are encouraged by RHSC’s efforts to advance personalized health in dentistry through the use of our unique periodontal susceptibility risk test, PST ®,” said Kenneth S. Kornman, CEO, Interleukin Genetics.
