BACKGROUND miR-122 is an important host factor for hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication. The aim of this study was to assess the safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and antiviral effect of a single dose of RG-101, a hepatocyte targeted N-acetylgalactosamine conjugated oligonucleotide that antagonises miR-122, in patients with chronic HCV infection(More)
Miravirsen is a β-D-oxy-locked nucleic acid-modified phosphorothioate antisense oligonucleotide targeting the liver-specific microRNA-122 (miR-122). Miravirsen demonstrated antiviral activity against hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1b replicons with a mean 50% effective concentration (EC50) of 0.67 μM. No cytotoxicity was observed up to the highest(More)
BACKGROUND A higher risk of developing osteopenia/ osteoporosis has been seen in HIV-infected patients. We compared HIV-infected patients, all treated with combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), with a low bone mineral density (BMD) (T-score < -1) to those with a normal BMD (T-score > -1), examining the relation with T-cell activation and bone turnover(More)
