Regado Biosciences, Inc. to Present at the UBS Global Life Sciences Conference 2012 in New York, NY
Date:9/12/2012

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Regado Biosciences, Inc., a privately held company leading the development of antithrombotic aptamers with active control agents, announced that David J. Mazzo, PhD, President and CEO, will be presenting at the UBS Global Life Sciences Conference at 2:00 p.m. ET on September 19, 2012 at the Grand Hyatt in New York City.

The presentation will include an overview of the Company's pipeline with emphasis on the lead development program, the innovative anticoagulant system REG1, including a summary of the groundbreaking results of the REG1 phase 2b trial (RADAR).  Additionally, a summary of the positive results of the FDA end-of-phase 2 meeting and a description of the resulting phase 3 development program and timeline, minimized for cost and maximized for probability of success, will be provided.

ABOUT REGADO BIOSCIENCES
Regado Biosciences, Inc. is a private biopharmaceutical company pioneering a new therapeutic technology with the creation and development of proprietary controllable aptamer drug systems.  Each system comprises a nuclease-stabilized RNA aptamer, the therapeutic effect of which can be reversed partially or completely in real time by its specific and complementary oligonucleotide active control agent. This technology is being applied to injectable antithrombotics (including anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents) in the acute and sub-acute care cardiovascular setting, a multi-billion dollar world-wide market in need of drugs with improved safety profiles and a greater degree of therapeutic control.  The products in Regado's pipeline are designed to act as optimized antithrombotics, uniquely and concomitantly minimizing the risk of ischemia and bleeding, and, by allowing patient specific tuning of the desired therapeutic effect, provide a safe and unique approach to personalized medicine.

ABOUT REG1, REG2 and REG3 
Regado's lead program, the anticoagulant system REG1, consists of two agents both administered by IV bolus, the first being a potent highly selective Factor IXa inhibitor (pegnivacogin) with the second being its complementary active control agent (anivamersen).  Anivamersen can be used to selectively reverse (completely or partially) the anticoagulant effect of pegnivacogin.  REG1, recently completing phase 2b (the RADAR trial), is intended for application in arterial thrombosis indications, such as Acute Coronary Syndrome patients undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.  A clinical program in Open Heart Surgery [including coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and valve repair/replacement] is also under development.  REG2, Regado's second product candidate, consists of a subcutaneously administered depot formulation of pegnivacogin paired with the IV bolus formulation of anivamersen.  REG2 has completed single escalating dose phase 1 clinical testing (the first successful subcutaneous application of an aptamer in humans) and is planned to be studied in a multiple escalating dose clinical trial.  It is intended for use in venous thrombosis indications such as venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in patients undergoing abdominal surgery.  REG3, Regado's third program, consists of a specific GPVI inhibitor and its active control agent (RB571 and RB515, respectively).  REG3 is planned to enter phase 1 human clinical testing shortly and will be indicated for antiplatelet therapy such as in treating diabetic vasculopathies.

ABOUT APTAMERS
Pegnivacogin is a member of a class of compounds called aptamers.  Aptamers are single stranded oligonucleotides that adopt a specific conformation enabling direct, specific inhibition of the targeted protein.   A key unique feature of aptamers derives from the fact that they are formed from nucleic acids.  As such, their pharmacologic activity can be controlled by a matched, complementary oligonucleotide active control agent (the Watson-Crick base pair complement of a fraction of the agent to be controlled), which can bind to the aptamer, removing it from its target and reversing its biologic effects.  Anivamersen is the complementary specific active control agent of pegnivacogin.
