RegeneRx is a publicly traded, clinical-stage, biopharmaceutical company engaged in the design, research and development of novel peptides targeted at diseases with unmet medical needs. RegeneRx’s mission is to research and develop novel pharmaceuticals that protect and repair tissue and organ damage caused by disease, trauma or other pathology. RegeneRx acquired the rights to a novel peptide from the NIH in 1999. This intellectual property for Thymosin Beta 4 (Tβ4) allowed the company to direct its focus on tissue protection and repair in multiple disease indications. RegeneRx’s management team is focused on moving three distinct Tβ4-based drug candidates through the clinic: RGN-137, RGN-259 and RGN-352. RegeneRx also holds over 60 issued patents or filed patent applications worldwide in order to enable and protect multiple indications and applications for its product candidates. In addition to Tβ4, RegeneRx is developing Tβ4 peptide fragments for cosmeceutical applications, separate and distinct from the pharmaceutical peptide and formulations. RegeneRx intends to pursue strategic business relationships to develop these smaller peptides for the cosmeceutical market.
