【O-20】 Recent progress in development of nucleic acid therapeutics

The development research of nucleic acid medicine that began in the 1980's
has repeatedly rise and retreat many times so far, but now it is time to revitalize again. In 2013, the first systemically administered antisense drug was
approved, and last year, two nucleic acid drugs were approved, and following
these is awaited. Recently, development of nucleic acid medicine by many
pharmaceutical companies has been actively conducted, and over 100 nucleic
acid derivatives are progressing to preclinical and clinical trials.
In this session, we will introduce the latest and up-to- date molecular
technologies related to the design and development of nucleic acid medicine
and the latest trends on its DDS technology.
