Company: Stoke Therapeutics
Posted on: November 22, 2021
About Stoke:Stoke Therapeutics (Nasdaq: STOK), is a
biotechnology company dedicated to addressing the underlying cause
of severe diseases by up-regulating protein expression with
RNA-based medicines. Using the company's proprietary TANGO
(Targeted Augmentation of Nuclear Gene Output) approach Stoke is
developing antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) to selectively restore
protein levels. The company's first compound, STK-001 is in
clinical testing for the treatment of Dravet syndrome, a severe and
progressive genetic epilepsy. Dravet syndrome is one of many
diseases caused by a haploinsufficiency, in which a loss of -50% of
normal protein levels leads to disease. The company is pursuing
treatment for a second haploinsufficient disease, autosomal
dominant optic atrophy (ADOA), the most common inherited optic
nerve disorder. Stoke's initial focus is haploinsufficiencies and
diseases of the central nervous system and the eye, although proof
of concept has been demonstrated in other organs, tissues, and
systems, supporting the company's belief in the broad potential for
its proprietary approach. Stoke is headquartered in Bedford,
Massachusetts with offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts. For more
