RNA Aptamers: A New Paradigm in Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment, New Life Science Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Date:10/30/2013

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) October 30, 2013

RNA aptamers are an emerging class of molecules demonstrating significant potential in the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. RNA aptamers are small, single-stranded RNA molecules that are functionally analogous to antibodies. However, RNA aptamers can be produced by chemical synthesis and their small size, low immunogenicity, and other attributes give them important advantages over antibodies. In addition, stable, ribonuclease-resistant RNA aptamers can be readily produced which further extends their use for both in vitro and in vivo applications.

This presentation will focus on the use of RNA aptamers for developing cancer diagnostics and treatments.

Join the panel including speakers from University of Miami, University of Arlington, TX, and University of Iowa, as they discuss techniques and methods involved in:

  •     Selecting and using RNA aptamers as therapeutic agents
  •     Targeted delivery of therapeutics such as siRNA
  •     Development of biosensors/diagnostics for early cancer detection

A Q&A with the audience will follow the main presentation.
