You show an application. Not a patent. I cannot waste time on this, but you can log into public PAIR and look up something called the "image file wrapper". There, you may find a rejection notice.
Either way, if ISIS has an older, more broad patent, its conceivable the parties you name could obtain a patent for a target, only to find the patent was wrongly issued. There is a long, difficult pathway for intellectual property developers and the patent office can issue a patent without knowing of another patent already issued, that covers the same thing or contemplated the same thing in the most broad read. Sorry, you cite essentially nothing but a date and a specification, which is worthless without an issued patent.
