What is n-Lorem?

May 25, 2022


A non-profit model is the only model for nano-rare patients

n-Lorem provides an opportunity for a better life, renewed hope and brighter dreams, one patient, one family at a time. Our mission is to provide personalized experimental antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) medicines to treat nano-rare patients – for free, for life. Nano-rare patients describe a very small group of patients (1-30 worldwide) who, because of their small numbers, have few if any treatment options. We take advantage of the efficacy and versatility of ASO technology. ASO technology is the only technology with regulatory guidance to treat nano-rare patients. Rare diseases often cause people to do things that they’re completely untrained to do. With this series, we’re building a community for nano-rare and bringing the basic science behind drug discovery and development directly to patients and their families.

On This Episode We Discuss:

  • Defining a nano-rare patient
  • What is a typical pathway for diagnosis?
  • Why a non-profit model is the only model for nano-rare patients
  • How n-Lorem is uniquely positioned to provide hope and help to these patients

The host of the show is Dr. Stanley Crooke, a scientist, a physician, an entrepreneur and the father of antisense technology. Dr. Crooke is responsible for driving the development of antisense or ASO technology, an RNA-targeted technology responsible for the commercialization of three best- and first-in class medicines and more than 40 drugs in development. In 2020, Stan formed n-Lorem to use this powerful technology to develop experimental personalized ASO medicines for nano-rare patients (1 to 30 patients worldwide) for free, for life.
