    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.
