CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISIS) announced today that the United States Adopted Names Council has approved the nonproprietary name mipomersen sodium for ISIS 301012, a cholesterol-lowering drug targeting apolipoprotein B-100. In addition, Isis is reducing its recently revised pro forma net operating loss (NOL) guidance downward from mid to high $40 million range to mid to high $20 million range, excluding non-cash compensation expense. Isis' initial guidance for its 2007 NOL was in the mid to high $60 million range. These announcements, along with ISIS 301012 Phase 2 results presented at the Drugs Affecting Lipid Metabolism (DALM) XVI International Symposium, will be discussed in a conference call hosted by Isis this morning at 8:00 a.m. E.T.

"We recently announced our acquisition of Symphony GenIsis as well as closure of our collaboration with Ortho-McNeil, Inc. and the immediate achievement of the first milestone in that collaboration. We are revising our net operating loss guidance to reflect the favorable financial impact of these transactions; we now expect that our 2007 NOL will be in the mid to high $20 million range," said B. Lynne Parshall, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Isis Pharmaceuticals. "When we revised our cash guidance in our second quarter conference call, we had already taken into account the anticipated cash impact of both the Ortho-McNeil collaboration and the Symphony GenIsis purchase, so we continue to estimate that, based on reasonable assumptions for new sources of revenue and cash, we have sufficient resources to meet our anticipated funding requirements through at least the end of 2010."
