Since its inception more than a decade ago, the field of short interfering RNA (siRNA) therapeutics has demonstrated potential in the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. The power behind RNA interference (RNAi) therapy lies in its ability to specifically silence target genes of interest. As more biological data have become available, it has become evident that, in addition to mediating RNAi, siRNA molecules have the potential to potently induce the innate immune system. One of the… CONTINUE READING
