Regado Biosciences To Present at the 2009 Japan Biopharma Partnering Conference on October 6, 2009

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Regado Biosciences, a privately held company leading the development of antithrombotic aptamers with active control agents, announced today that David J. Mazzo, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, will be presenting at the Japan Biopharma Conference 2009 at the Conrad Hotel in Tokyo, Japan. Dr. Mazzo's presentation is scheduled for 2:40pm (GMT +9:00) on October 6, 2009. The Conference brings together premier biotechnology companies from North America and Europe with influential Japanese licensing and business development executives. Dr. Mazzo's presentation will include an overview of the Company's pipeline with emphasis on the lead development program, the anticoagulant system, REG1.


Regado Biosciences is pioneering a new therapeutic technology with the creation and development of two-component drug systems. Each system comprises a nuclease-stabilized RNA aptamer that can be controlled directly by its specific and complementary oligonucleotide active control agent. This technology is being applied to injectable antithrombotics, including anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents, a multi-billion dollar market in need of therapeutics with improved safety profiles and a greater degree of therapeutic control. Regado's technology is designed to give physicians the ability to actively and directly control each system's therapeutic effect providing a safe and unique approach to personalized medicine.


Regado's lead program, the anticoagulant system REG1, consists of two parenteral agents both administered by IV bolus, the first being a potent highly selective Factor IXa inhibitor (RB006) and the second being its complementary active control agent (RB007). RB007 can be used to selectively completely or partially reverse the anticoagulant effect of RB006. REG1 is intended for application in arterial thrombosis applications, initially in Acute Coronary Syndrome patients undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. REG2, Regado's second product candidate, consists of a subcutaneously administered formulation of RB006 paired with the IV bolus formulation of RB007. REG2 is intended for use in venous thrombosis indications


RB006 is a member of a class of compounds called aptamers. Aptamers are single stranded oligonucleotides that adopt a specific conformation enabling direct, specific inhibition of the targeted protein. A key unique feature of aptamers derives from the fact that they are formed from nucleic acids. As such, their pharmacologic activity can be controlled by a matched, complementary oligonucleotide active control agent (the Watson-Crick base pair complement of a fraction of the agent to be controlled), which can bind to the aptamer, removing it from its target and reversing it biologic effects.
