Application note: Synthesis confirmation for nucleic acid medicines – rapid sequence confirmation using a MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer
Medicines that utilise nucleic acids, such as DNA and RNA which control genetic information, are called "nucleic acid medicines".
In this article Pramod Kumar, a Senior Research Analyst (Healthcare) at P&S Intelligence, explores how single-cell analysis techniques are used for both pharmaceutical R&D and clinical, diagnostic applications.
This expert view from Charles River explores the different methods of fungal identification, allowing you to proactively address issues before they occur and provide information for successful remediation.
Scientists have designed and synthesised chains of molecules for the purpose of drug delivery with a precise sequence and length to protect DNA nanostructures from degradation under biomedically relevant conditions.
Stabilising DNA nanostructures using glutaraldehyde to tether an electrostatic PEGylated oligolysine net to the DNA enabled them to survive degradation in animal models.
The first gene therapy products are appearing commercially and the field is growing rapidly with over 350 clinical trials taking place in H1 of 2019 alone. So why is this area attracting so much attention? Dr Philip Probert and Dr Stuart Jamieson discuss the potential of gene therapy and the…
