Traded in other countries:HQ1N.Germany,
ARCA biopharma Inc is a biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in developing genetically-targeted therapies for cardiovascular diseases. Its product candidate is Gencaro.

ARCA biopharma, Inc., was originally incorporated as Hyseq, Inc. in Illinois in 1992 and reincorporated in Nevada in 1993. On January 31, 2003, Nuvelo merged with Variagenics, Inc., a publicly traded Delaware corporation based in Massachusetts, and, in connection with the merger, changed its name to Nuvelo, Inc. On March 25, 2004, it was reincorporated from Nevada to Delaware. On January 27, 2009, in connection with the Merger with ARCA Colorado described above, Nuvelo changed its name to ARCA biopharma, Inc. Its main offices are located in Broomfield, Colorado. It is a biopharmaceutical company whose focus is developing genetically-targeted therapies for cardiovascular diseases. Its product candidate, Gencaro TM (bucindolol hydrochloride), a pharmacologically unique beta-blocker and mild vasodilator, is being developed for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with heart failure (HF). The company has been granted patents in the U.S., Europe, and other jurisdictions for methods of treating AF and HF patients with Gencaro based on genetic testing. The company outsources all manufacturing and analytical testing of the Gencaro API and drug product. The company is contracted with Groupe Novasep to complete the drug substance registration batches required for the Gencaro NDA. These batches were successful, and the resulting drug substance was used to supply the drug product registration campaign. For drug product production, the company has contracted with Patheon, Inc. to manufacture the Gencaro tablets. Gencaro is produced in a tablet form, utilizing standard solid oral dosage processing techniques. The Company faces competition from pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology companies that are researching and selling products designed to treat cardiovascular conditions. Governmental authorities in the U.S. at the federal, state, and local levels and foreign countries regulate, among other things, the research, development, testing, manufacture, labeling, promotion, advertising, marketing, distribution, sampling, and import and export of pharmaceutical and medical device products.
