Strategy

Antisense oligonucleotide (ASO)-based therapeutics are becoming more and more popular as evidenced by the recent increase in market approvals and high value partnering transactions. ASOs fill the innovative gap left by more traditional approaches. Recognizing this is what motivated us to develop our 3rd generation antisense platform LNAplus™. Focusing on proof-of-concept, we concentrate on targets that are considered as undruggable by conventional approaches or where we believe that Secarna’s LNAplus™-based ASOs have the potential to demonstrate superior safety and efficacy over other modalities.

For further proof-of-concept, we have established a successful partnership model complementing our molecule design and selection process. In the past, we have engaged in collaborations with internationally renowned centers of excellence across both academia and industry.

Our leadership team consists of biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry experts who are recognized for their contributions in the development of novel antisense therapies and bringing new, safe and efficacious treatments to patients.
