Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON, England - Nov 30, 2016 - Due to significant investment and promising results in early phase clinical trials for chronic and rare diseases, reports have predicted the DNA and RNA therapeutics market to reach $1.2 billion by 2020. Of the 700 DNA and RNA therapeutics that are in the drug development pipeline, nearly 35% are targeting oncology.
Hear more on cancer therapeutics next February when SMi’s 8TH annual 2017 conference on RNA Therapeutics returns to London.
Featured presentations include:
