Antisense oligonucleotides in therapy for neurodegenerative disorders.
Antisense oligonucleotides are synthetic single stranded strings of nucleic acids that bind to RNA and thereby alter or reduce expression of the target RNA. They can not only reduce expression of mutant proteins by breakdown of the targeted transcrip

Antisense gene silencing: therapy for neurodegenerative disorders?
Since the first reports that double-stranded RNAs can efficiently silence gene expression in C. elegans, the technology of RNA interference (RNAi) has been intensively exploited as an experimental tool to study gene function. With the subsequent disc

Viral Vector-Mediated Antisense Therapy for Genetic Diseases.
RNA plays complex roles in normal health and disease and is becoming an important target for therapeutic intervention; accordingly, therapeutic strategies that modulate RNA function have gained great interest over the past decade. Antisense oligonucl

Neurology in Asia.
Asia is important as it accounts for more than half of the world population. The majority of Asian countries fall into the middle income category. As for cultural traditions, Asia is highly varied, with many languages spoken. The pattern of neurologi

Next generation antithrombotic therapy: focus on antisense therapy against coagulation factor XI.
Although the current therapeutic armamentarium of venous thrombosis encompasses the use of vitamin K antagonists, heparins, and direct oral anticoagulants, these drugs have several important drawbacks. Antisense oligonucleotides are relatively short
