Acceleron Pharma, Inc. Analyst Notes 

On March 24, 2014, Acceleron Pharma, Inc. (Acceleron) and Celgene Corp. (Celgene) announced the successful publication of two papers online and in the April issue of the Nature Medicine journal. The Company stated that the papers explain how sotatercept and ACE-536 promote red blood cell formation through an erythropoietin (EPO) independent mechanism in mice. According to Acceleron, the studies suggest that sotatercept and ACE-536 may promote and regulate the maturation of late-stage red blood cell precursors and this distinct activity supports the rationale for sotatercept and ACE-536 as potential novel therapies to correct anemia, including the EPO-resistant anemia, in diseases such as beta-thalassemia and myelodysplastic syndromes. The Company added that the two papers will be available on the Publications page of its website. The full analyst notes on Acceleron Pharma, Inc. are available to download free of charge at:
