    Collapse overview

    Over three decades, three drug-discovery platforms have been introduced in my laboratory based on synthetic oligonucleotides. These include: Antisense technology, Toll-Like Receptor Agonism, and Toll-Like Receptor Antagonism. Drug candidates from these technologies have been created and have advanced to clinical proof of concept trials in patients. These technologies have also been licensed to biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Several drugs have been approved based on ASO chemistry licensed from Idera.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
