“This clinical development milestone is an important step in our long-standing collaboration with Servier. The aspiration of our collaboration is to address cardiovascular and other diseases that have been difficult to treat with traditional therapeutic approaches,” said miRagen President and CEO William S. Marshall, Ph.D. “Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and over a third of the adult U.S. population suffers from at least one form of the disease. We look forward to the next step of development of MRG-110 which should guide how this product candidate may potentially be used as an innovative therapy for patients in need.”
