UgimeresTM are short oligonucleotide sequences capable of interacting with single-stranded DNA or RNA by forming a double strand. Thanks to said double-strand formation, disease-relevant proteins will be specifically prevented from forming altogether or will be reduced to only a modified stage. This makes it possible to therapeutically influence the development of diseases at a very early stage of intervention. Structurally, UgimeresTM are derived from peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) to which important pharmacological functions have been added by way of chemical modifications.
