Results and Additional Analyses From Study Show That Corthera's Relaxin for Acute Heart Failure is the Strongest Predictor of Improved Longer-Term Outcomes Following Hospital Discharge When Compared to Other Variables
Date:6/1/2009

180 days.

"These new analyses, when added to the main results of Pre-RELAX-AHF, provide further indications that relaxin may be an important new therapy for patients admitted to hospital with acute heart failure," said Dr. Metra.

Five peer-reviewed posters with data and analyses from Pre-RELAX-AHF were also presented today. The insights from these analyses provided further evidence on the types of patients who might benefit from therapy with relaxin, as well as the mechanisms by which relaxin causes these clinical benefits.

"There is a clear and urgent need for improved therapies for patients with acute heart failure," said Piotr Ponikowski, M.D., Ph.D, head of the department of cardiology at the Clinical Military Hospital in Wroclaw, Poland, a principal investigator of the Pre-RELAX-AHF study and president-elect of the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology. "We are encouraged by the preliminary results of the Pre-RELAX-AHF study, and we look forward to confirming them in the larger Phase III study, RELAX-AHF-1."

Stan Abel, CEO of Corthera, added, "Acute heart failure is a global medical problem. The recognition of this problem by the international cardiology community underscores the important need for new therapies and the promise that relaxin holds for patients."

Dr. Metra also presented the main results from Pre-RELAX-AHF for the first time in Europe on May 31 at the Judges' Choice oral abstracts session at HFA-ESC 2009. These results were previously presented at the American College of Cardiology's (ACC) 58th Annual Scientific Session and published in the Lancet. The data from 234 patients in eight countries showed that when relaxin was administered with standard-of-care therapy for acute heart failure, relaxin caused rapid, substantial and sustained relief from dyspnea (breathlessness). Relaxin also demonstrated consistent trends in improvement of the hospital course of patients, p
