% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

According to the report “Global Aptamers Market,” published by Market Data Forecast, the global market is projected to reach USD 293 million by 2021, at a CAGR 18.00% from 2016 to 2021.

Aptamers are oligonucleotides that bind to target protein, lipid, or nucleic acid molecules with a high specificity. Aptamers are generated quickly and applied in the inhibition, characterization of proteins and for specific detection. Aptamers can be used as pharmaceutical leads, functional proteomic levels with antibodies, detection reagents, and small molecules. Aptamers can be engineered to have higher specificity and affinity for number of targets.

 Aptamers can be selected from pools of random-sequence oligonucleotides to bind a wide range of bio medically relevant proteins with affinities and specificities that are comparable to antibodies. Aptamers are versatile and cost effective which offer complementary or alternative solutions to the antibodies. Aptamers exhibit significant advantages relative to protein therapeutics in terms of size, synthetic accessibility and modification by medicinal chemistry. The effectiveness of aptamers and low manufacturing costs can bring treatment for diseases like HIV or AIDS to the poorest countries. Aptamers can be developed faster than antibodies; therefore diseases can be cured even faster.
