1. A pharmaceutical composition comprising a synthetic, modified oligonucleotide of 10 to 30 nucleotides in length comprising at least one modification wherein the at least one modification is selected from: at least one modified sugar moiety; at least one modified internucleotide linkage; at least one modified nucleotide, and combinations thereof; wherein said oligonucleotide is a single-stranded antisense compound which specifically hybridizes to a target region of a natural antisense polynucleotide of a NANOG gene having SEQ ID NO: 2 and is at least 90% complementary to said natural antisense polynucleotide and upregulates the function and/or expression of an NANOG gene in vivo or in vitro as compared to a normal control and a pharmaceutically acceptable excipient.
