DM1: an oligonucleotide administered in the brain of model mice

IONIS 486178, an antisense oligonucleotide optimised to target muscle cells (through coupling to an antibody) injected systemically, improves muscle damage in mice with DM1. Intracerebroventricular injection reduces behavioural impairment in treated mice. These results open up the possibility of intrathecal treatment in DM1.   Antisense oligonucleotides as a potential treatment for brain deficits observed in … [Read more]

The Institute is recruiting a Senior Project Manager (M/F) for the European Reference Network (ERN) EURO-NMD

ERN EURO-NMD European Reference Networks (ERNs) are networks involving centers of expertise and health care providers across Europe. They aim to tackle complex or rare diseases and conditions that require highly specialized treatment, as well as a concentration of knowledge and resources. Established in 2017 and co-funded by the European Commission, EURO-NMD is a European … [Read more]
