The speakers will present data on 3 clinical programs using liver-directed RNA therapeutic modalities. The programs will cover late phase development of a GalNAc-amended SiRNA (Inclisiran), a mid-phase GalNAc-amended ASO (Pelacarsen) and on early phase development of an LNP-formulated Crispr molecule. In addition to providing an update on the progress of each program, the session will allow the audience to compare and contrast the various programs, approaches, and challenges, and how each sponsor has found solutions that can be applied more broadly across the field of oligo therapeutics. Finally, the session is planned to allow time for fruitful exchanges between attendees and speakers.

Learning Objective :
  • Understand why oligo-based therapeutics and CRISPR-based gene editing may be uniquely suited to address certain genetic diseases
  • Understand the specific challenges of developing RNA-based therapeutics
  • Understand the challenges inherent in each of 2 different oligo-based and 1 CRISPR-based gene editing therapeutic modalities
  • Gain insight into the impact of tissue- and cell-specific targeting of these therapeutics on safety and efficacy outcomes
