Verseon to Present New Preclinical Results for Novel Class of Oral Anticoagulants at the 3rd International Conference on Heart & Brain

FREMONT, Calif. – Verseon Corporation (AIM: VSN) will present a poster featuring new data for several promising oral anticoagulant drug candidates on February 25th at the 3rd International Conference on Heart & Brain (ICHB) in Paris. Verseon's candidates represent a novel class of highly selective direct thrombin inhibitors (DTIs) with superior preclinical bleeding risk profiles when compared to those of the existing oral NOACs.

Verseon, a technology-based pharmaceutical company, uses its proprietary computational drug discovery platform to devise novel therapeutics for unmet medical needs. The Company's new class of potent, highly selective DTIs has demonstrated excellent results in preclinical efficacy studies and has pharmacokinetic properties suitable for oral dosing.

"The new results we are presenting at ICHB include data from an additional comprehensive preclinical thrombosis model that further confirms the efficacy of Verseon's drug candidates," said Anirban Datta, Director of Discovery Biology at Verseon, "Our anticoagulants continue to show positive results as the program progresses."
