LONDON, January 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

- Third collaboration to investigate the potential application of Silence's proprietary RNAi delivery technologies in the development of novel microRNA-based therapeutics

Silence Therapeutics plc (AIM: SLN) ("Silence"), a leading RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutics company, announces that it has signed an agreement with miRagen Therapeutics, Inc. ("miRagen"), to assess the delivery potential of Silence's proprietary DBTC delivery system with miRagen's novel microRNA- (miRNA-) based therapeutics. MiRagen is a pre-clinical stage biopharmaceutical company founded to develop innovative miRNA-based therapeutics for the treatment of cardiovascular and muscle disease.

Under the terms of the agreement, miRagen will provide Silence with specific miRNA sequences, which Silence will formulate with its proprietary DBTC delivery system in order to develop multiple candidate drugs.
