Repligen Initiates Phase 2b Clinical Trial of RG2417 in Bipolar Disorder
Date:11/6/2008

WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Repligen Corporation (Nasdaq: RGEN) announced today that the Company has initiated a Phase 2b clinical trial to evaluate the use of RG2417, an oral formulation of uridine, in patients with bipolar depression. This Phase 2b study is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in which approximately 150 patients with bipolar depression will receive either RG2417 or placebo twice daily for eight weeks. This study is designed to assess the safety and efficacy of RG2417 as measured by the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) and the Clinical Global Impression of Change in Bipolar Disorder Scale (CGI-BP-C). The study will be conducted at approximately 20 clinical sites within the United States. The Principal Investigator of this study is Gary S. Sachs, M.D., founder and director of the Bipolar Clinic and Research Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital and an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School.

Current therapies used to treat bipolar depression are often ineffective and may have significant side effects, resulting in bipolar depression as an area of high unmet medical need," said Walter C. Herlihy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Repligen. "We look forward to confirming our prior results with RG2417 in bipolar depression in this larger proof-of-concept clinical trial."

The trial is designed to confirm and extend the results obtained in a positive Phase 2a clinical trial of RG2417 in which 83 patients with bipolar disorder received either RG2417 or place
