about this item

Researchers in the biomedical sciences discuss aptamers, a class of targeting compounds with a very high target specificity and affinity, as an alternative to antibodies for targeted drug delivery and therapy. Among their topics are the development and applications of thioredoxin-based peptide aptamers, selecting and applying catalytically active oligonucleotides, stem-cell-specific aptamers for targeted cancer therapy, aptamer-liposome conjugates: current art and future prospects, molecular imaging utilizing aptamer-targeted probes, and the first therapeutic aptamer: a macugen targeting vascular endothelial growth factor.
