    Abstract: Oligonucleotides directed against the FABP4 gene are developed for modulating the expression of FABP4 protein. The compositions comprise oligonucleotides, particularly antisense oligonucleotides, targeted to nucleic acids encoding FABP4. Methods of using these compounds for modulation of FABP4 expression and for the treatment of diseases associated with over expression of FABP4 are provided. Examples of such diseases are the metabolic syndrome, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and inflammatory states such as arthritis. The oligomer may be composed of deoxyribonucleosides or a nucleic acid analogue such as for example locked nucleic acid (LNA) or a combination thereof.
