Quark Pharmaceuticals Announces Poster Presentations at RNAi Europe 2008
Date:9/17/2008

es raises the necessity to target more than one gene at a time. At the same time, simultaneous delivery of different siRNAs targeting one and the same gene can increase the treatment specificity and reduce off-target effects.

Dr. Daniel Zurr, Quark's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "These poster presentations highlight our ongoing work to establish Quark's leadership in the field of RNAi by developing novel IP and expertise covering technology platforms that facilitate development of siRNA therapeutics. With the industry's most robust portfolio of siRNA therapeutics currently under evaluation in human clinical trials, Quark has proven its ability to advance siRNA products from discovery to the clinic."

About Quark Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Quark Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a development-stage pharmaceutical company engaged in discovering and developing novel therapeutic RNAi drug candidates. Quark has a fully integrated drug development platform that spans therapeutic target identification to drug development. Quark's RNAi technology includes novel siRNA structures and chemistry that the Company believes provide Quark with freedom to operate in the siRNA intellectual property arena, as well as the ability to deliver siRNA non invasively to organs including the eye, ear, kidney, lung, spinal cord and brain.

PF-4523655 (RTP801i-14), currently in Phase II clinical trials, is a synthetic, chemically modified, siRNA molecule to inhibit the expression of the gene RTP801, licensed to Pfizer. In addition, Quark's current clinical pipeline includes AKIi-5, developed by Quark for the prevention of acute kidney injury (AKI) following major cardiac surgery, currently in Phase I/IIa clinical trials via systemic delivery and DGFi with open IND for prevention of delayed graft function in kidney transplantation. Based on publicly available information, Quark believes AKIi-5 was the first siRNA delivered systemically in a human clinical trial.
