IVT mRNA (in vivo and in vitro Applications)

In vitro transcribed (IVT) mRNA is gaining momentum as a potential new drug class for induction of antigen-specific immunity especially in the field of immuno-oncology, but also as a starting material in cell therapy approaches for gene editing or immune therapy purposes.

Cutting-edge technologies took time to mature but meanwhile direct injection of RNA for immunization has been shown to be sufficiently improved. Improvements in methods for mRNA synthesis and stabilization have yielded promising results in preclinical studies over the past years. Consequently, mRNA-based cancer immunotherapies (in vivo and ex vivo applications) and infectious disease vaccines have entered clinical development.

Emerging novel approaches include in vivo delivery of IVT mRNA for protein replacement, the generation of pluripotent stem cells and genome engineering using IVT mRNA-encoded designer nucleases.

Our Services:
