New Data Shows Breakthrough microRNA-Targeted Therapy Developed Using Santaris Pharma A/S Proprietary LNA Technology Holds Promise as New Treatment for Hepatitis C
Date:12/3/2009

y Santaris Pharma A/S creates synthetically modified chemical versions of the normal nucleic acid building blocks of ribonucleic acids (RNA). These modified chemical versions called LNAs improve the drug-like qualities of resulting therapeutics (oligonucleotides) by improving affinity to their target RNA, boosting resistance to metabolism and improving tissue uptake. Upon systemic administration of these "naked" molecules, LNA-based therapeutics are delivered to many different tissues where they show potencies many-fold better than other oligonucleotide therapeutics.
