...According to Dr. Kadener, "This research is significant from several perspectives. By mapping how circRNAs are produced, it helps advance our understanding of general molecular biology. In addition, it might be strongly relevant for understanding and eventually treating degenerative diseases both in muscle and the brain."
...patent coverage for its nucleic acid delivery technologies in key commercial markets," stated J Michael French, president & CEO of Marina Biotech. "Looking broadly at our nucleic acid delivery capability, we believe we are the only company that has a delivery technology, SMARTICLES, in clinical development that is: (1) delivering both a single-stranded and double-stranded nucleic acid; (2) delivering to both the cell nucleus (ProNAi Therapeutics' single-stranded DNA decoy) and cell cytoplasm (Mirna Therapeutics' double-stranded microRNA mimic); and (3) delivering a lipid nanoparticle outside the liver, (i e. tumors). Further, we believe we are the only company that has two separate and distinct delivery technologies, SMARTICLES (lipid nanoparticle) and tkRNAi (engineered bacteria), in clinical development. Finally, we are the only company with an orally administered RNAi-based therapeutic in clinical development - the Company's CEQ508 for the treatment of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis. Taken in its entirety, we believe our delivery platform is unparalleled within the sector and unequalled in clinical versatility. We expect these technologies to be instrumental in the rapid advancement of nucleic acid therapeutics treating rare diseases."
We were shocked and I asked them what the ramifications were and was told: "It's only a nuisance disease and he will have to use a pad and pencil to communicate"
Dr. Giles Campion , Prosensa's Chief Medical Officer and co-author of several presentations, said "The wide range and high quality data reported across twelve presentations at WMS, including biomarkers to measure disease progression, clinical results, and our pre-clinical work on multi-exon skipping, which could address the rarer mutations in the dystrophin gene, highlights the scientific rigor and pioneering spirit of our outstanding scientists and collaborators. We will continue to work together to deliver much needed therapies as quickly and efficiently for boys with DMD."
