Ensysce Publishes Data on Carbon Nanotube Tech for siRNA Delivery

Premium

Ensysce Biosciences announced this week the publication of data showing that its carbon nanotube technology can be used to deliver siRNAs.

According to the company, the findings show that single-walled carbon nanotubes can protect siRNAs in circulation and deliver them into tumors in vivo. The paper was published in the journal Materials.

With funding of up to $1.5 million from the State of Texas Emerging Technology Fund, Ensysce said it aims to move the RNAi delivery technology into phase I testing in the next 12 to 18 months.
