Sangamo BioSciences Announces Presentation of Top-Line Statistically Significant Phase 2 Data in Diabetic Neuropathy at Society for Neuroscience Meeting
Date:10/20/2009

RICHMOND, Calif., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGMO) announced today the presentation of top-line, statistically significant Phase 2 clinical data from its ZFP Therapeutic(TM) program to develop SB-509 as a treatment for diabetic neuropathy (DN) at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting held in Chicago.

Top-line data from Sangamo's SB-509-601 Phase 2 clinical trial demonstrated a direct neuroregenerative effect of SB-509 treatment that resulted in a statistically significant (p value=0.02) increase in small unmyelinated nerve fibers in the skin, or intraepidermal nerve fiber density (IENFD), in subjects with DN.

Data were also presented that provided additional evidence of the positive effect of SB-509 on large fiber sensory nerve health as measured by improvements in nerve conduction velocity (NCV), in subjects with elevated markers of vascular damage (ICAM-1), and improvements in the muscle components of the neurologic exam (NIS-LL) 30-days after each of the three administrations of SB-509. Together these data confirm the neuroregenerative activity of SB-509 in patients with DN and define a drug-responsive population for future trials.

"The IENFD data presented today provide direct histologic evidence of nerve regrowth with SB-509 treatment and a mechanistic proof of concept for the neuroregenerative effects of this ZFP Therapeutic," stated Dale Ando, M.D., Sangamo's Vice President of Therapeutic Development and Chief Medical Officer. "The relationship between reduced IENFD and severity of DN has been well established and correlates with decreased levels of VEGF-A and an increase in inflammatory growth factors such as ICAM-1, a marker of vascular disease. In addition, in subjects with more severe DN, with elevated levels of ICAM-1 in their blood, there is
