About Sangamo

Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. is focused on research and development of novel
DNA-binding proteins for therapeutic gene regulation and genome editing. The
Company has ongoing Phase 2 clinical trials to evaluate the safety and
efficacy of a novel ZFP Therapeutic^® for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. Sangamo's
other therapeutic programs are focused on monogenic diseases, including
hemophilia, Huntington's disease andhemoglobinopathies such as
beta-thalassemia and sickle cell anemia. Sangamo's core competencies enable
the engineering of a class of DNA-binding proteins known as zinc finger
DNA-binding proteins (ZFPs). Engineering of ZFPs that recognize a specific
DNA sequence enables the creation of sequence-specific ZFP Nucleases (ZFNs)
for gene modification and ZFP transcription factors (ZFP TFs) that can control
gene expression and, consequently, cell function. Sangamo has entered into a
strategic collaboration with Shire AG to develop therapeutics for hemophilia,
Huntington's disease and other monogenic diseases and has established
strategic partnerships with companies in non-therapeutic applications of its
technology including Dow AgroSciences and Sigma-Aldrich Corporation. For more
