OblimersenNot Annotated
EteplirsenAn antisense oligonucleotide used to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) only in patients who are confirmed to have a specific type of mutation.
NusinersenA medication used to treat spinal muscular atrophy.
InotersenAn antisense oligonucleotide used to treat polyneuropathy of hereditary transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis.
GivosiranA 5-aminolevulinic acid synthase-directed small interfering RNA (siRNA) used in the prophylaxis of acute hepatic porphyria.
