On June 27, 2016, Regulus announced that it had received verbal notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") that the agency had placed the Company's investigational new drug RG-101 for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus infection on clinical hold after a second serious adverse event of jaundice was reported.

On January 27, 2017, post-market, Regulus announced that the FDA would not reconsider the clinical hold on RG-101 until the agency had received the final safety and efficacy data from ongoing clinical and pre-clinical studies. Regulus advised investors that the Company expects the requested data to be available in the fourth quarter of 2017. On this news, the Company's stock has fallen as much as $1.06, or over 47%, to a low of $1.19 during intra-day trading on January 30, 2017.
