Small Nucleic Acid Drugs Based on htDNA-chip®

Small Nucleic Acid Drugs Based on htDNA-chip®

What is the small nucleic acid drugs?

Nowadays, small nucleic acid drugs show great potential in healthcare, mainly including small interfering RNA (siRNA) drugs and microRNA (miRNA) drugs. Small nucleic acid drugs start treatment from the gene level. Its biggest advantage is that it only needs to develop sequences suitable for small nucleic acid drugs. This method avoids blindness in the drug development process. After determining the target sequence of small nucleic acid drugs, the drug development process is faster. Small nucleic acid drugs are specific to disease-causing genes because of specific targets and mechanisms of action. The main mechanism of small nucleic acid drugs is to inhibit the expression of target proteins by acting on mRNA through gene silencing. Rare diseases and tumors are the most widely used areas of small nucleic acid drugs. These areas happen to be the bottleneck of modern healthcare. The specific regulatory mechanisms of the two small nucleic acid drugs are as follows.
