Human as a drug factory mRNA
mRNA has made its way to the general lexicon given that some of the high efficacy COVID vaccines are mRNA based.
mRNA flips the drug development on its head... Instead of giving you a protein as a drug, it prompts protein to be made in your body in effect putting the drug factory inside you. Will this fundamentally change drug development? If so, what are the research focus areas?
Research trends based on medical publications reveal a variety of topics apart from vaccines. Cancer, mental health, and areas such as obesity and diabetes are also prominent research areas.
