Summary for Patent: 8,697,860
Title:Diagnosis and treatment of disease
Abstract: Provided herein are methods, compounds, and compositions for reducing expression of transthyretin mRNA and protein in an animal. Such methods, compounds, and compositions are useful to treat, prevent, delay, or ameliorate transthyretin amyloidosis, or a symptom thereof.
Inventor(s): Monia; Brett P. (Encinitas, CA), Freier; Susan M. (San Diego, CA), Siwkowski; Andrew M. (Carlsbad, CA), Guo; Shuling (Carlsbad, CA)
Assignee: Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Carlsbad, CA)
Application Number:13/944,786
Patent Claims: 1. A composition comprising an aqueous solution having a viscosity level less than 40 centipoise (cP), wherein the aqueous solution comprises a compound comprising a single-stranded modified oligonucleotide consisting of 20 linked nucleosides having a nucleobase sequence consisting of SEQ ID NO: 80, wherein the modified oligonucleotide comprises: a gap segment consisting of ten linked deoxynucleosides; a 5' wing segment consisting of five linked nucleosides; and a 3' wing segment consisting of five linked nucleosides; wherein the gap segment is positioned between the 5' wing segment and the 3' wing segment, wherein each nucleoside of each wing segment comprises a 2'-O-methoxyethyl sugar, wherein each internucleoside linkage is a phosphorothioate linkage, and wherein each cytosine of the modified oligonucleotide is a 5-methylcytosine.

2. The composition of claim 1, wherein the aqueous solution has a temperature of about 25.degree. C.

3. The composition of claim 2, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.

4. The composition of claim 1, wherein the aqueous solution has a viscosity level less than 15 centipoise (cP).

5. The composition of claim 4, wherein the aqueous solution has a temperature of about 25.degree. C.

6. The composition of claim 5, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.

7. The composition of claim 4, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.

8. The composition of claim 1, wherein the aqueous solution has a viscosity level less than 12 centipoise (cP).

9. The composition of claim 8, wherein the aqueous solution has a temperature of about 25.degree. C.

10. The composition of claim 9, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.

11. The composition of claim 8, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.

12. The composition of claim 1, wherein the aqueous solution has a viscosity level less than 10 centipoise (cP).

13. The composition of claim 12, wherein the aqueous solution has a temperature of about 25.degree. C.

14. The composition of claim 13, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.

15. The composition of claim 12, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.

16. The composition of claim 1, wherein the aqueous solution consists of water and the compound.
