Last generation 4,6,4′- trimethylangelicin (TMA) – derivatives with anti-inflammatory properties  Correction of the defective CFTR protein is the priority goal in the treatment of the lung pathology of patients affected by cystic fibrosis. The possibility that mutated CFTR correctors and potentiators currently in clinics are sufficient to intervene on the chronic inflammatory status of CF […]

Peptide-nucleic acids for CFTR correction MicroRNAs as key post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a family of small (19 to 25 nucleotides in length) noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression by sequence-selective targeting of mRNAs, leading to a translational repression or mRNA degradation, depending on the degree of complementarity between miRNAs and the […]
