About Spiegelmers® Spiegelmers® (L-stereoisomer RNA oligonucleotides) are chemical entities based on synthetic mirror-image oligonucleotides which are highly selective for their pharmacological target and potent inhibitors of target function. They combine the benefits of small molecule drugs and biopharmaceuticals. Due to their unique mirror-image configuration Spiegelmers® are not metabolized and do not hybridize with native nucleic acids. Spiegelmers® also do not activate the innate immune response via toll-like receptors and showed an exceptionally favorable immunogenicity profile in pre-clinical testing.
