SAE Media Group caught up with Macarena Hernandez- Jimenez, Chief Scientific Officer, aptaTargets S.L., speaking on day two of the conference, to discuss about her challenges, upcoming projects and breakthroughs within the oligonucleotide therapeutics industry.
The oligonucleotide therapeutics market has grown rapidly over the past few years, what key difference have you noticed in the last year regarding significant developments?
Well, of course, I think that the main difference is the development of RNA-based vaccines that has put oligonucleotides in the middle of the therapeutic arena. I think this is a very positive advance in the oligonucleotide therapeutics.
What do you see as the greatest challenge for you to overcome personally in the oligonucleotide field at the moment?
For me, the main challenge has been to convince regulatory agencies. Few years ago, some of them were not familiar with oligonucleotides and it was quite difficult all the regulatory management.
What current hot topic will you be addressing in your presentation and what would you say makes it relevant to 2022?
The most important point in my presentation is that we have finished the recruitment of patients from APRIL trial, a Phase Ib/IIa clinical trial in stroke patients. I hope I will show some preliminary results.
