Regulus Therapeutics and Collaborators Publish New Pre-Clinical Data on microRNA-33 Demonstrating Key Role in Cholesterol Homeostasis and Fatty Acid Metabolism
Date:10/20/2011

LA JOLLA, Calif., Oct. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Regulus Therapeutics Inc., a biopharmaceutical company leading the discovery and development of innovative medicines targeting microRNAs, and collaborators at NYU Langone Medical Center and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center today announced the publication of new pre-clinical research findings in the journal Nature (Rayner et al., Nature, October 20, 2011). The new data show the first demonstration of marked increases in high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), the 'good' cholesterol, and suppression of plasma triglyceride levels in non-human primates through inhibition of both microRNA-33a and microRNA-33b (miR-33a/b) with proprietary chemically modified anti-miR oligonucleotides. A webinar to discuss the new data will be hosted by Regulus and features Kathryn Moore, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center and Regulus scientists (11:00am EDT, October 26, 2011).

"In addition to atherosclerotic plaque regression and enhanced reverse cholesterol transport that we previously observed in rodents with our collaborators at NYU Langone Medical Center, anti-miR-33 treatment is now shown to increase HDL cholesterol and lower triglycerides in non-human primates," said Hubert C. Chen, M.D., Vice President of Translational Medicine at Regulus. "These combined data sets provide strong evidence that an anti-miR-33 therapeutic approach can offer multiple mechanisms to benefit patients with atherosclerosis. Anti-miR-33a/b is one of several microRNA therapeutic programs we are advancing toward clinical development."

Dr. Moore said, "The current study is the first to demonstrate in non-human primates that inhibition of miR-33a/b can both increase circulating levels of HDL-C and suppress plasma triglyceride levels. This study highligh
