  • Patent number: 10316316
    Abstract: The present invention is directed compositions for targeted delivery of RNA interference (RNAi) polynucleotides to hepatocytes in vivo. Targeted RNAi polynucleotides are administered together with co-targeted delivery polymers. Delivery polymers provide membrane penetration function for movement of the RNAi polynucleotides from outside the cell to inside the cell. Reversible modification provides physiological responsiveness to the delivery polymers.

  • Publication number: 20190085331
    Abstract: Defined multi-conjugate oligonucleotides can have predetermined sizes and compositions. For example, in various embodiment, defined multi-conjugate oligonucleotides can have advantageous properties, for example in the form of defined multi-conjugate siRNA (i.e., including two, three or more siRNA) having enhanced intracellular delivery and/or multi-gene silencing effects. In various embodiment, the defined multi-conjugate oligonucleotides can be synthesized via new synthetic intermediates and methods. The defined multi-conjugate oligonucleotides can be used, for example, in reducing gene expression, biological research, treating or preventing medical conditions, or to produce new or altered phenotypes in cells or organisms.

  • Patent number: 9587240
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a double-stranded ribonucleic acid (dsRNA) having a nucleotide sequence which is substantially identical to at least a part of a target gene and which is no more than 49, preferably less than 25, nucleotides in length, and which comprises a complementary (antisense) RNA strand having a 1 to 4 nucleotide overhang at the 3?-end and a blunt 5?-end. The invention further relates to a pharmaceutical composition comprising the dsRNA and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. The pharmaceutical compositions are useful for inhibiting the expression of a target gene, as well as for treating diseases caused by expression of the target gene, at low dosages (i.e., less than 5 milligrams, preferably less than 25 micrograms, per kg body weight per day). The invention also relates to methods for inhibiting the expression of a target gene, as well as methods for treating diseases caused by the expression of the gene.
