SAN MATEO, Calif., June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nile Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: NLTX), a biopharmaceutical company that develops novel therapeutics for heart failure patients, today announced that it appointed Darlene Horton, M.D. as its Chief Medical Officer.

Dr. Horton was previously Chief Medical Officer of Itero Biopharmaceuticals, a venture-backed company that developed and out-licensed a biosimilar protein therapeutic. Previous to Itero, Dr. Horton served as Senior Vice President, Clinical Research at Scios, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson (J&J) company. During her 12 year tenure at Scios, she was the clinical lead for Natrecor®, a commercial product indicated for the treatment of acute heart failure. Dr. Horton led the program from late-stage development through approval and commercialization. She presented the program to the FDA's Cardiovascular and Renal Advisory Committee prior to successful approval. Following the acquisition of Scios by J&J, Dr. Horton also served as the Head of the Cardiovascular Therapeutic Area Center of Excellence for all of J&J pharmaceutical companies.

"We are excited for Dr. Horton to join the Nile team," said Joshua Kazam, Chief Executive Officer of Nile. "We believe Dr. Horton's proven track record in the development of cardiovascular therapies will be invaluable to Nile as we push forward the cenderitide post-acute heart failure program."
