Antisense Therapeutics by M. Ian Phillips (auth.), M. Ian Phillips PhD, DSc (eds.)

By M. Ian Phillips (auth.), M. Ian Phillips PhD, DSc (eds.)

Announcement of the whole sequencing of the human genome in April 2003 tested the presence of hundreds of thousands of goals for antisense oligonucleotides and opened tips to 1000s of preclinical animal reports and a few 20 ongoing medical trials. during this moment variation of Antisense Therapeutics, a group of major researchers and medical scientists exhibit the hot truth of antisense and RNA inhibition for treating a huge variety of illnesses. The authors convey how antisense oligonucleotides are being designed and studied relating to high blood pressure, a number of cancers, inflammatory bowel affliction, mind problems, the blood-brain barrier, and drug supply. Highlights comprise RNA-based treatments for plenty of illnesses, updated tools and functions, and perception into the big capability to supply a brand new new release of gear.
hugely useful and disorder orientated, Antisense Therapeutics, moment variation deals not just a primer for a brand new new release of drug discovery researchers, but additionally an illuminating exploration of the capability in exploiting RNA inhibition for novel human therapeutics.
