Regado Achieves 1,000-Patient Milestone in Phase 3 Trial of REG1

REGULATE-PCI Opened to "All Comers" PCI Population

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Regado Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: RGDO), a biopharmaceutical company leading the development of actively controllable therapeutics for acute care cardiovascular indications, today announced that after achieving the 1,000-patient enrollment milestone, enrollment in the REGULATE-PCI trial has been extended to non ST-elevated myocardial infarction (N-STEMI) patients to include the planned "all comers" percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) patient population described in the trial protocol. REGULATE-PCI is Regado's Phase 3 trial comparing REG1 to bivalirudin for superiority in reducing ischemic events in patients undergoing PCI, excluding those with ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI). This development program was recently granted Fast Track designation by the FDA.

"I am pleased with the enthusiasm that the investigator community is showing for REG1 as evidenced by the rapid enrollment rate of the trial," said Roxana Mehran, MD, Co-Principal Investigator on the REGULATE-PCI trial and Professor of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Using Regado's unique aptamer technology, REG1 offers controlled anticoagulation and rapid reversal for the practitioner. REG1 has the potential to become the new standard of care in PCI and possibly other acute care cardiovascular indications. It promises to be the first and only anticoagulant that reduces ischemic complications without an increase in bleeding while also reducing healthcare costs associated with the procedure."

REGULATE-PCI, as originally planned, began with enrollment of unstable angina (UA) and elective patients undergoing PCI and, with the addition of N-STEMI patients undergoing PCI, is now enrolling the "all comers" PCI population as defined in the trial protocol and according to the previously projected timelines. REGULATE-PCI, if successful, will serve as the basis for product registration applications throughout the world.


Regado Biosciences, Inc., is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of novel, oligonucleotide-based actively controllable therapeutics. Our initial focus is on applications in the acute and sub-acute cardiovascular therapeutic area. 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 trial 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. Regado's actively controllable product candidates have the potential to improve patient outcomes and enhance the patient experience, provide direct therapeutic control to physicians and reduce overall treatment costs.
