RNA: Understanding

RNA: Overview

RNA interference (RNAi) is one of the pathways, collectively named RNA silencing pathways that employ small RNAs as guides for sequence-specific silencing. RNAi was discovered in C. elegans and defined as sequence-specific mRNA degradation induced by long double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). The RNA interference (RNAi) pathway regulates mRNA stability and translation in nearly all human cells.

RNA interference (RNAi) or Post-Transcriptional Gene Silencing (PTGS) is a conserved biological response to double-stranded RNA that mediates resistance to both endogenous parasitic and exogenous pathogenic nucleic acids, and regulates the expression of protein-coding genes. This natural mechanism for sequence-specific gene silencing promises to revolutionize experimental biology and may have important practical applications in functional genomics, therapeutic intervention, agriculture and other areas.

1. Company Overview: Alnylam Pharmaceuticals

Alnylam (Nasdaq: ALNY) has led the translation of RNA interference (RNAi) into a whole new class of innovative medicines with the potential to transform the lives of people afflicted with rare and prevalent diseases with unmet need. Based on Nobel Prize-winning science, RNAi therapeutics represent a powerful, clinically validated approach yielding transformative medicines. Since its founding 20 years ago, Alnylam has led the RNAi Revolution and continues to deliver on a bold vision to turn scientific possibility into reality. Alnylam is executing on its "Alnylam P5x25" strategy to deliver transformative medicines in both rare and common diseases benefiting patients around the world through sustainable innovation and exceptional financial performance, resulting in a leading biotech profile. Alnylam is headquartered in Cambridge, MA.

Product Description: Vutrisiran

Vutrisiran is an investigational, subcutaneously administered RNAi therapeutic in development for the treatment of ATTR amyloidosis, which encompasses both hATTR and wild-type ATTR (wtATTR) amyloidosis. It is designed to target and silence specific messenger RNA, potentially blocking the production of wild-type and variant transthyretin (TTR) protein before it is made. Quarterly, and potentially biannual, administration of vutrisiran may help to reduce deposition and facilitate the clearance of TTR amyloid deposits in tissues and potentially restore function to these tissues. Vutrisiran utilizes Alnylam's Enhanced Stabilization Chemistry (ESC)-GalNAc-conjugate delivery platform, designed for increased potency and high metabolic stability that may allow for infrequent subcutaneous injections.

2. Company Overview: Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals

Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Using a broad portfolio of RNA chemistries and efficient modes of delivery, Arrowhead therapies trigger the RNA interference mechanism to induce rapid, deep, and durable knockdown of target genes. Arrowhead is focused on developing innovative drugs for diseases with a genetic basis, characterized by the overproduction of one or more proteins.

Product Description: ARO-APOC3

ARO-APOC3 is a subcutaneously administered RNAi therapeutic designed to reduce the production of Apolipoprotein C-III (Apoc-III), a component of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRLs) including VLDL and chylomicrons, and is a key regulator of triglyceride metabolism. The company believes that knocking down the hepatic production of Apoc-III may result in reduced VLDL synthesis and assembly, enhanced breakdown of TRLs, and better clearance of VLDL and chylomicron remnants. It is currently being developed as a potential treatment for patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia (SHTG), familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS), and mixed dyslipidemia. Arrowhead's investigational RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutic is currently under phase III trial for FCS and phase II for mixed dyslipidemia and SHTG. Furthermore, Arrowhead has successfully completed the phase I trial for hypertriglyceridemia and FCS.

3. Company Overview: Eli Lily and Company
