Aptamedicine: a new treatment modality in personalized cancer therapy


Aptamers (Aps) are short single-strand nucleic acids exhibiting unique 3D structure which facilitate their targeting potential against various cancer molecular markers (CMMs). Such features of Aps not only make them as suitable targeting agents in targeted drug delivery systems (DDSs) but also candidate them as macromolecules that inhibit the interaction of the target protein with other proteins. On the other hand, the conjugation of Aps with another therapeutic molecule such as antisense oligonucleotide (AS-ODN), siRNA/miRNA, Ap, toxins, chemotherapeutic agents, DNAzyme/Ribozymes provide hopeful strategy to eradicate the malignancies and overcome the off-target unwanted side effects. Such prominent features of Aps make them a promising treatment modality to overcome the tumor complexity and heterogeneity and consequently hired toward personalized therapy of cancer by using bispecific Ap-based therapeutics.
