The Summit brings together stakeholders in the field of RNA Therapeutics from academia, biotechnology, pharma, manufacturing, government, and regulatory bodies to join forces in this rapidly advancing field. Christoph Schäfer, CEO, is looking forward to learn more from industry leaders about the latest trends in RNA therapeutics and to discuss CIS Pharma’s linker technology for targeted delivery of oligonucleotides.
About CIS Pharma linker and carrier technology for targeted delivery of RNAi
RNA interference (RNAi) is a mechanism used to defend against external invasion. Oligo- and poly-nucleotide based RNAi therapeutics comprise a high clinical potential for unmet medical diseases and are seen as promising approach to combat a number of different indications including oncology, genetic disorders, auto-immune disorders, orphan diseases and viral infections.
Without a targeting technology, the therapeutics are predominantly metabolized by the liver. To prevent metabolization, the oligo-nucleotides are applied locally, limiting the clinical window for oligonucleotide therapies. Alternatively, targeted delivery to specific cells has to be developed to create novel therapies.
