Abstract:


Aptamers have several positive advantages that made them eminent as a potential factor in diagnosing and treating diseases such as their application in prevention and treatment of diabetes. In this opinion-based mini-review article, we aimed to investigate the DNA and RNA-based hybrid molecules specifically aptamers and had a logical conclusion as a promising future perspective in early diagnosis and treatment of diabetes.

Keywords:

Aptamers, diabetes mellitus, early diagnosis, treatment, hybrid molecules, gene therapy.
