Antisense Technology

An Innovative Platform for Discovering First-in-Class Drugs for Treating Disease

Antisense technology represents an important breakthrough in the way we treat disease. The explosion in genomic information led to the discovery of many new disease-causing proteins and created new opportunities accessible only to antisense technology.

We have led the industry in the development of RNA-targeted technologies and successfully developed a drug discovery platform based on our antisense technology. We discover and develop drugs that bind to RNA instead of proteins, which have been the focus of the pharmaceutical industry for more than 100 years.
