BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- miRagen Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGEN), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of RNA-targeted therapies, today announced second quarter 2017 financial results and provided a corporate update.
“The second quarter of 2017 has been marked by a number of important development milestones as we position the company for additional clinical opportunities,” said miRagen President and Chief Executive Officer, William S. Marshall, Ph.D. “In addition to reporting positive new interim Phase 1 clinical trial data underscoring our belief in the potential of the MRG-106 program, we completed our MRG-201 Phase 1 clinical trial and established a potential path forward for expanding both development programs into additional indications. The results generated in both clinical trials represent significant strides forward in execution of our foothold clinical development strategy. We believe that the continued application of the foothold clinical approach may allow us to expand opportunities for our microRNA targeted therapeutic candidates in the future.”
