Regado Biosciences to Present at the 2010 Wells Fargo Healthcare Conference on June 24, 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Regado Biosciences, 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 2010 Wells Fargo Healthcare Conference at the InterContinental Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Mazzo's presentation will be given at 8:00 am (EDT) on Thursday, June 24 in the Robinson Room and will include an overview of the Company's pipeline with emphasis on the lead development program, the innovative anticoagulant system, REG1.


Regado Biosciences is pioneering a new therapeutic technology with the creation and development of two-component drug systems. Each system comprises a nuclease-stabilized RNA aptamer that can be controlled directly 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 setting, a multi-billion dollar market in need of therapeutics with improved safety profiles and a greater degree of therapeutic control. Regado's technology is designed to give physicians the ability to actively and directly control each system's therapeutic effect providing a safe and unique approach to personalized medicine.


Regado's lead program, the anticoagulant system REG1, consists of two parenteral agents both administered by IV bolus, the first being a potent highly selective Factor IXa inhibitor (RB006) and the second being its complementary active control agent (RB007). RB007 can be used to selectively completely or partially reverse the anticoagulant effect of RB006. REG1, presently in a phase 2b clinical trial (the RADAR trial), is intended for application in arterial thrombosis applications, initially in Acute Coronary Syndrome patients intended for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. REG2, Regado's second product candidate, consists of a subcutaneously administered depot formulation of RB006 paired with the IV bolus formulation of RB007. REG2 recently 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 in late 2010 or early 2011. 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 in 2011 and will be indicated for antiplatelet therapy. Information pertaining to Regado's clinical programs may be obtained at


RB006 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 it biologic effects.
