Researchers Find Flaws with mRNA Therapeutics

An article from the University of Cambridge contains this statement, “Researchers have discovered that misreading of therapeutic mRNAs by the cell’s decoding machinery can cause an unintended immune response in the body. They have identified the sequence within the mRNA that causes this to occur and found a way to prevent ‘off-target’ immune responses to enable the safer design of future mRNA therapeutics.” Let’s review.
