  • antisense drugs JAMA
    An antisense, nucleic acid-related compound is the mirror image of the genetic sequence that it is supposed to inactivate. It is a synthetic segment of DNA (see) or RNA (see) that locks onto a strand of natural DNA or RNA with a complementary sequence of nucleotide (see ribonucleic acid) bases. Antisense drugs are designed to block viral genetic instructions, marking them for destruction by cellular enzymes, in order to prevent the building of new virus or the infection of new cells.
