SAN DIEGO, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Celladon Corporation, a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing novel therapies by applying its leadership position in the field of SERCA enzymes, today announced the full three year long-term follow up results from Phase 2a of the CUPID 1 trial in the online publication of Circulation Research. Phase 2a of the CUPID 1 trial investigated Celladon's product candidate MYDICAR in three dose groups for the treatment of advanced heart failure.

"The duration of clinical response in the high dose group, coupled with the favorable trend in mortality and lack of safety concerns, leaves us optimistic for future development of MYDICAR."
In the additional two year follow up period of the CUPID 1 trial, the durability of reduced cardiovascular and terminal events previously observed in the MYDICAR high dose cohort at 12 months was maintained. The following recurrent cardiovascular and terminal events were tracked over the three years in all MYDICAR dose groups: myocardial infarction, worsening heart failure, heart failure-related hospitalization, left ventricular assist device (LVAD) placement, heart transplantation, and all-cause death. The risk of pre-specified recurrent cardiovascular events through full three years of follow up was reduced by 82% in the high dose group compared to the placebo group (p=0.048, where p-value is the statistical probability of a result due to chance alone).
In addition, the survival probability over time was higher for patients in all MYDICAR dose groups compared to the placebo group, especially in the high dose group. At three years post-administration, there we
