Clinical potential of respirable antisense oligonucleotides (RASONs) in asthma.

The human genome project, as well as advances in our understanding of asthma susceptibility, are yielding novel candidate targets for disease intervention. The normalization of up-regulated gene expression may treat or improve the disease outcome. However, only some of these gene product targets may be 'tractable', i.e. amenable to blockade by small, orally… CONTINUE READING
