RNA Interference Gene Therapy: A story of mice and men

RNA interference (RNAi) has emerged as one of the hottest topics in molecular and organismal biology. A flurry of recent papers suggest that RNAi may be useful as a human therapeutic. Significantly, in a paper in September’s Nature Genetics, David Lewis and his colleagues have shown that RNAi is functional in numerous tissues of therapeutic interest.1 RNAi… CONTINUE READING
