BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Regado Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: RGDO), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the late-stage clinical development of its first-in-class, actively controllable antithrombotic drug system, REG1, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued an important patent that expands protection of Regado's core technology platform while broadening the range of aptamer-based therapies upon which Regado may base future products.
Regado's current drug development programs, including its lead REG1 Anticoagulation System, consist of an aptamer-based pharmacologic drug paired with a specific control agent. U.S. patent #8,586,524, the newest issuance in the "Modulators of Pharmacologic Agents" patent family, describes the classes of molecules that can be developed as control agents to modulate aptamer activity in the body. Specifically, '524 extends coverage beyond nucleic acid-based modulators to now include peptide-, polypeptide- and protein-based control agents for the modulation of aptamer-based anticoagulants.
Christopher Rusconi, Ph.D., Regado's chief scientific officer, stated, "Regado is committed to continuously broadening our patent position and leveraging intellectual property to strengthen our novel technology platform. As we continue to advance REG1 through our pivotal Phase 3 REGULATE-PCI trial and closer to potential commercialization, the '524 patent protects Regado from potential competing aptamer-based anticoagulants designed to employ peptide or protein-based modulators. The patent also expands the future development possibilities for anticoagulant products, allowing us to maintain our leadership position in this space, which is critical for attracting potential development partners."
U.S. patent #8,586,524 builds upon U.S. patents #8,283,330 and #7,300,992, which cover a spectrum of oligonucleotide and oligonucleotide-related modulators designed to target anticoagulants specifically ('330), as well as aptamers directed against any other type of molecular target ('992).

Regado Biosciences, Inc., is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel, first-in-class, actively controllable antithrombotic drug systems for acute and sub-acute cardiovascular indications. Regado is pioneering the development of two-component drug systems consisting of a therapeutic aptamer and its specific active control agent. The company's lead product candidate, REG1, is a two-component system consisting of pegnivacogin, an anticoagulant aptamer specifically targeting coagulation Factor IXa, and its complementary oligonucleotide active control agent, anivamersen. REG1 is currently being evaluated in the REGULATE-PCI trial, a worldwide Phase 3 study enrolling 13,200 patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a hospital-based procedure used to mechanically open or widen obstructed coronary arteries.

There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
