Do you have your own idea? 

If you need elements of answer, we suggest reading the very exhaustive review by Musga Qureischi , Julia Mohr , Estibaliz Arellano , Sarah Elspeth Knudsen , Farrukh Vohidovn and Andoni Garitano published in the international review of cell and molecularbiology*.

in-vitro transcribed (IVT) mRNA is translated in the cytoplasm after transfection into cells, can encode virtually any target protein and has several advantages:

– Compared to DNA: it does not enter the nucleus, which avoids its integration into the genome and the risk for insertional mutagenesis
– Compared to recombinant proteins: its large-scale production is less complex 

The review discusses the chemical modifications of IVT mRNA and highlights numerous preclinical and clinical applications including:

  • Vaccines for cancer and infectiousdiseases
  • Cancer immunotherapy
  •  Protein replacement 
  • Geneediting
  • cellCreprogramming

We at Lifency congratulate the authors on their very interesting contribution and support the scientific and medical communities in their continuous and sustained efforts to identify novel therapeutic solutions
