  • Patent number: 9938527
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an LNA oligonucleotide consisting of a sequence selected from the group consisting of 5?-(Tx)GxGxcsasasgscsastscscsTxGxT-3? and 5?-(Gx)TxTxascstsgscscststscsTxTxA-3?, wherein capital letters designate a beta-D-oxy-LNA nucleotide analog, small letters designate a 2-deoxynucleotide, underline designates either a beta-D-oxy-LNA nucleotide analog or a 2-deoxynucleotide, subscript “s” designates a phosphorothioate link between neighboring nucleotides/LNA nucleotide analogs, and subscript “x” designates either a phosphorothioate link or a phosphorodiester link between neighboring nucleotides/LNA nucleotide analogs, and wherein the sequence is optionally extended by up to five 2-deoxynucleotide units. The LNA oligonucleotides are useful for modulating the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor-1a (HIF-1a), e.g. in the treatment of cancer diseases, inhibiting angiogenesis, inducing apoptosis, preventing cellular proliferation, or treating an angiogenic disease, e.g.
