RNAi Therapeutics: The Next-Gen Arsenal against Virus

Press Release   •   Feb 25, 2013 15:11 IST

As per the new research report by RNCOS, “Global RNAi Market Analysis”, RNAi drugs are finding increasing research focus for the treatment of viral infections. Few RNAi drugs in pipeline hold immense potential. For instance, in February 2012, Tekmira Pharmaceuticals initiated the TKM-Ebola Phase 1 clinical trial, which is a placebo-controlled, single-blind, single-ascending dose study with additional multiple-ascending dose cohorts of its RNAi drug “TKM-Ebola” in healthy human volunteers.

TKM-Ebola is being developed under specific FDA regulatory guidelines called the Animal Rule. The Animal Rule provides that under certain circumstances, where it is unethical or not feasible to conduct human efficacy studies, the FDA may grant marketing approval based on adequate and well controlled animal studies when the results of those studies establish that the drug is reasonably likely to produce clinical benefit in humans. This has been done keeping in view the immense potential of the TKM-Ebola that has for the cure of widely prevalent Ebola virus infections.

The global RNAi market is showing robust research activities and promising growth. It presents an extensive potential in multiple areas, such as drug discovery, drug development, and therapeutic applications for various indications, and aids in the basic research. Our latest research found that various components, such as siRNA & miRNA possess immense opportunities and provide a wide range in different drug classes. These molecules also find wide applications in sectors, such as functional genomics, disease diagnostics, and agriculture, among others. It is anticipated that the global RNAi market will grow stupendously at a CAGR of around 17% during 2011-2015.

Overall, the report provides a clear understanding of the RNAi market and its current status, globally. Recent industry activities in key geographies, such as US, Europe, and Asia-Pacific regions have been covered in this report. Products and services of key market players along with brief information about their businesses have also been provided.
