About this book


This first-ever book on oligodeoxynucleotides describes in detail the new antisense approach to chemotherapy. It is written by world experts, covers all areas of current knowledge and includes new results. The principle of the antisense approach is that an antisense mRNA base sequence will bind to its target mRNA base sequence and thus bring about the selective inhibition of gene expression. The antisense approach is important in general in understanding gene function, and more specifically as a potential basis for new drugs, notably against cancer and viral genes.
