Hear from ProQR Therapeutics: RNA Therapeutics for Patients with Cystic Fibrosis

London, United Kingdom, October 18, 2017 --(PR.com)-- SMi are thrilled to welcome Dr. Noreen Roth Henig, Chief Medical Officer, ProQR Therapeutics onto the speaker panel RNA Therapeutics 2018.

ProQR is dedicated to discovering and developing RNA therapeutics for severe genetic rare diseases. Their QR-010 molecule is designed to address the most common mutation which causes cystic fibrosis. It has now demonstrated safety and clinical activity in two early clinical trials. This program integrated a creative approach to preclinical data, delivery, and clinical trial design to quickly advance this potential RNA therapeutic for a significant orphan disease population. Using a similar creative approach, ProQR have developed their second molecule, QR-110 for individuals with Leber’s congential amaurosis Type 10 into a now on-going clinical trial. Beyond that, have a pipeline of RNA therapeutics.

In the last several years, the RNA-based therapeutic development field has made good on the promise of decades of preclinical research. There are some outstanding and creative clinical trials using RNA-based therapeutics and strong momentum to bring these RNA-based therapeutics to patients.

"I will share the challenges and choices made in bringing these molecules to development using QR-010 as the key example as it is farthest along."
