 1/12/19 - Aptamer Group and AstraZeneca to develop new drug delivery vehicles [Sudan Tribune]

Aptamer Group today announced it has signed an agreement with AstraZeneca to explore the potential of using aptamer technology to target the kidney. The two-year agreement will give AstraZeneca use of Aptamer Groups proprietary technology to explore the feasibility of developing the next generation of drug delivery vehicles, called Aptamer Drug Conjugates (ApDCs).

Aptamers are oligonucleotide or peptide molecules that bind to a specific target molecule. They are emerging as promising therapeutic agents. Their ability to fold into distinct secondary or tertiary structures gives them high affinity and specific binding toward cell-specific targets. The binding aptamers can be attached to a variety of therapeutic compounds for targeted drug delivery.

This collaborative project, which brings together the platform technology developed at The Aptamer Group and AstraZenecas leadership in Cardiovascular, Renal, and Metabolism (CVRM) therapy development and expertise in drug discovery and development, aims to use ApDCs to enable targeted delivery specifically to the kidney.
