RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) are chemical compounds and can be made by the body. "Nucleic acid medicines" use "nucleic acid," which means substances such as DNA and RNA that control genetic information, as medicines. Therefore, DNA/RNA medicines are nucleic acid medicines. This kind of medicine as the next-generation drug discovery technology with a completely different mechanism of action is different from traditional pharmaceutical products. Moreover, it features the ability to be manufactured easily at moderate-sized molecules and the potential to exhibit efficacy and safety that surpasses those of antibody medicines. CD BioSciences is an excellent service provider and committed to providing a full range of custom DNA/RNA drug research services with high quality and low cost. Our end-to-end DNA/RNA drug discovery and development services will help you optimize the nucleic acid drug properties, promoting their applications in the precise treatment of genetic diseases.

Clinical Experiences with DNA/RNA Drugs (Nucleic Acids Drugs)
Based on structures, targets, and mechanisms of action of nucleic acid drugs, they can be divided into six categories listed Table 1
Table.1 Six categories of DNA/RNA.
(hair-pine type is single-strand)
|mRNA||Cleavage mRNA(RNA interference)|
(pre-miRNA is single-strand)
|mRNA||miRNA replacement(RNA interference)|
|Aptamer||Single-strand DNA/RNA||Protein(outside of cells)||Inhibits the physiological effect|
|Decoy||Double-strand DNA||Transcription factor||Inhibits transcription|
