New test method to standardize immunological evaluation of nucleic acid nanoparticles

Schematic summary of the experimental flow. Credit: Melina Richardson (Afonin Lab, UNC Charlotte) Therapeutic nucleic acids—lab-created segments of DNA or RNA, designed be used to block or modify genes, control gene expression or regulate other cellular processes—are a promising but still emerging area of biomedical treatment, with several drugs already in use and many more […]
