Wave Life Sciences Ltd. (Nasdaq: WVE), a clinical-stage genetic medicines company committed to delivering life-changing treatments for people battling devastating diseases, today announced it will highlight its ADAR-mediated RNA editing (“ADAR editing”) capability and PRISMTM platform advancements at upcoming scientific conferences.

These include the TIDES USA: Oligonucleotides & Peptide Therapeutics meeting and the 17th Annual Meeting of the Oligonucleotide Therapeutics Society (OTS), taking place September 20-23, 2021 and September 26-29, 2021, respectively.

“The data we’ll present at this year’s TIDES USA and OTS meetings underscore the remarkable progress we continue to make with our pipeline and our platform. Through the resolution provided by stereochemical control, we have identified new ways to enhance the pharmacologic profiles of our candidates, including the application of PN backbone modifications,” said Paul Bolno, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wave Life Sciences. “At OTS, we will also highlight our discovery-stage alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency program, as well as our leading ADAR editing modality. These data continue to support our belief that Wave’s ADAR editing modality has best-in-class potential among RNA editing approaches due to its versatility and ability to produce precise and efficient editing in the liver and central nervous system.”

About PRISM™
PRISM is Wave Life Sciences’ proprietary discovery and drug development platform that enables genetically defined diseases to be targeted with stereopure oligonucleotides across multiple therapeutic modalities, including silencing, splicing and editing. PRISM combines the company’s unique ability to construct stereopure oligonucleotides with a deep understanding of how the interplay among oligonucleotide sequence, chemistry and backbone stereochemistry impacts key pharmacological properties. By exploring these interactions through iterative analysis of in vitro and in vivo outcomes and machine learning-driven predictive modeling, the company continues to define design principles that are deployed across programs to rapidly develop and manufacture clinical candidates that meet pre-defined product profiles.
