Their own research and development activities focus on microRNAs In addition,diseases and metabolic diseases. In addition, Santaris Pharma is use its highly effective and efficient Drug Discovery Engine, generate lead LNA drug candidates against a broad range of disease targets selected by strategic partners. The company and its corporate partners currently have four compounds in clinical development and a full pipeline in late preclinical development.. Santaris Pharma is a privately held biopharmaceutical company developing new classes of RNA medicines targeting disease-related mRNAs and miRNAs on its proprietary LNA Drug Platform.

.’We are on progress in the development of this LNA-based HIF-1 alpha inhibitor promoted the fact that LNA RNA – based inhibitors are of clinical benefit of clinical benefit is very rewarding and is very rewarding and is further proof. Create the potential of our LNA Drug Platform to ensure effective and safe drugs major important diseases across a broad range of therapeutic areas, ‘said S0ren Tulstrup, President and CEO of Santaris Pharma A / S.

In seeking active compounds which identify potentially against these strains.

We show that combination combination of clavulanate and meropenem growth, and against fast-growing fast-growing and non-replicating populations bactericidal. Furthermore, the combination is effective against 13/13 clinical strains of XDR-TB. Recent reports indicate that this combination is effective in people infected with XDR-TB.. AbstractThe emergence of strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis resistant to almost all the latest almost all the latest drugs are a haunting specter of global proportions.

‘Some forms or strains are resistant to many drugs , esistant to almost all known antibiotics . A doctor I know in India just reported a strain of TB that is resistant totally. There is nothing that currently available, use it treat treat these patients. ‘.. John Blanchard , pointed out that TB is the promotion of a global public health crisis. Up to one third of the world population with Mycobacterium tuberculosis , the bacterium that causes tuberculosis infection. Mtb can be particularly serious in the elderly, people infected with the AIDS virus, and others with weakened immune systems. Continue reading

There is an urgent need for organs and tissues for transplantation.

There is an urgent need for organs and tissues for transplantation. Doctors than 24,000 organ transplants in the United States in 2002 conducted; anyone to the donor waiting list die every 12 minutes and 16 waiting for a waiting for a transplant received. A significant obstacle to wider use of transplantation, regardless of the source, their own problems. Maintenance of the graft tissue. Preservation techniques would allow transplant materials to be shipped anywhere in the world, or even better, collected and into such a thing as blood banks until needed.

Than 24,000rocess preserves transplant tissues and organsbody tissues such as blood vessels, cartilage and skin – even whole organs such as kidneys, liver and heart if necessary. Increasingly become available for transplant because of a patent granted recently Organ Recovery Systems of Chicago for a method of body tissues and organs well below freezing without forming ice crystals chilling. For tissue for tissue ‘vitrification ‘ – chilling tissue and organs to a disordered, glassy solid with no icing – was supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology Advanced Technology Program and the National Institutes of Health developed.
