  • Publication number: 20220307024
    Abstract: One aspect of the present invention relates to a double stranded iRNA agent comprising an antisense strand which is complementary to a target gene; a sense strand which is complementary to said antisense strand; and one or more lipophilic moieties conjugated to one or more internal positions on at least one strand, optionally via a linker or carrier, which provides for targeting to, and uptake by, tissues and cells of the CNS, and in particular the striatum. Another aspect of the invention relates to a method of gene silencing in tissues and cells of the CNS, and in particular the striatum, that includes administering to a tissue/cell or a subject in need thereof a therapeutically effective amount of the lipophilic moieties-conjugated double-stranded iRNAs.
