Sirnaomics to Present the Latest Developments of Dual-Targeted RNAi Therapeutics based on its Proprietary GalAhead(TM) Program at the 4th Annual RNA Therapeutic: From Concept to Clinic Symposium

Gaithersburg, MD, USA and Suzhou BioBay, China, June 21, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Sirnaomics Ltd. (the "Company" or "Sirnaomics", stock code: 2257.HK), a leading biopharmaceutical company in discovery and development of RNAi therapeutics, announced that the Company's Chief Technology Officer, Dmitry Samarsky, PhD, will present the latest developments and expanded applications of its Dual-Targeted RNAi therapeutics based on its proprietary GalAhead(TM) technology and product pipeline, at the 4th Annual RNA Therapeutic: From Concept to Clinic Symposium. The Symposium will take place virtually on June 22-24, 2022.

Sirnaomics' proprietary GalNAc-RNAi therapeutic platform, GalAhead(TM), relies on unique RNA structures that allow the knockdown of single or multiple distinct mRNA targets, specifically two key technological components: mxRNA(TM) (miniaturized RNAi triggers) and muRNA(TM) (multi-unit RNAi triggers). mxRNAs(TM) are comprised of single ~30 nt long oligonucleotides to downregulate individual genes, while muRNA(TM) molecules are comprised of multiple oligonucleotides to silence two or more targets simultaneously. Sirnaomics will present data at the Symposium evaluating these two technologies, especially the muRNA molecule that has been validated in an animal model for its dual-targeted gene silencing activity, and a progress report on the quickly expanding GalAhead(TM) therapeutic pipeline.

Presentation Details
-- Presentation Title: GalAhead(TM): a novel therapeutic GalNAc-RNAi platform to downregulate single and multiple genes
-- Presenter: Dmitry Samarsky, PhD, Chief Technology Officer of Sirnaomics
-- Date: June 22-24, 2022 (The presentation will be pre-recorded and available on demand)
-- Location: Online via the Symposium website

"Sirnaomics is striving to develop RNAi delivery technology for effective therapeutic application. Our novel GalAhead(TM) technology has been repeatedly validated with both single-targeted and dual-targeted RNAi therapeutics using rodents and non-human primate animal models," said Dr. Patrick Lu, founder, chairman of the Board, Executive Director, President and CEO of Sirnaomics. "We are expecting expanded clinical testing for our GalAhead(TM) platform and RNAi drug candidates for several liver metabolic diseases in 2023."

"Since we introduced GalAhead(TM) in 2019, the technology has continuously proved to be both robust and reproducible," said Dmitry Samarsky, PhD, Chief Technology Officer of Sirnaomics. "Based on this progress, we will have our first therapeutic candidate filed for IND approval by the end of 2022. This year, we have already nominated four more GalAhead(TM) based developmental candidates, including the first double-targeting molecule, and are planning to add more by the end of the year."
