Sangamo BioSciences Announces Presentation of Phase 2 Data in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) at Society for Neuroscience Meeting
Date:11/17/2010

RICHMOND, Calif., Nov. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGMO) announced today the presentation of Phase 2 clinical data from its ZFP Therapeutic program to develop SB-509, a zinc finger protein transcriptional activator (ZFP-TF) of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A gene as a treatment for ALS. The data from study SB-509-801 demonstrated that the drug was well-tolerated in subjects with ALS and that 40% of SB-509 treated subjects had delayed deterioration of toe and ankle muscle strength as measured by manual muscle testing (MMT) compared to 23% of baseline-matched historic controls.  In addition, positive improvements in electrophysiological measures of motor nerves were observed in a subset of treated subjects.  The data were presented at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting which is being held in San Diego.  

"These data are consistent with the delay in muscle deterioration that we have observed in both preclinical models of ALS as well as in clinical studies of this drug in subjects with diabetic neuropathy, a condition that is also characterized by degeneration and deterioration of nerve function," stated Dale Ando, M.D., Sangamo's vice president of therapeutic development and chief medical officer. "Our primary aim in this trial was to assess safety and tolerability of treatment with SB-509 in this vulnerable patient population and to conduct a signal-seeking study in which we assessed the effect of treatment on several clinical measures of function in ALS.  As this was an early-stage trial, for safety reasons we treated subjects twice over a 90 day period, although our positive preclinical animal data were achieved with a more frequent dosing schedule.  With that said, the delayed deterioration in muscle strength in the ankle and toe are very encouraging and may reflect the importa
