Life Science Insights Worldwide Therapeutic RNAi 2004-2014 Forecast and Analysis, Acuity Pharmaceuticals Cand5, and Mirus Online Store


Life Science Insights said it has published “Worldwide Therapeutic RNAi 2004-2014 Forecast and Analysis,” an analysis of the RNAi-based drugs market.

According to the company, the report includes an overview of RNAi technologies and a 10-year market forecast.

“The RNAi therapeutic market will grow to over $10 billion by 2014 if the first few RNAi therapies are successful in human clinical trials, which will start later this year,” Life Science Insights senior research editor Zachary Zimmerman said in a statement released this week.

Acuity Pharmaceuticals said earlier this month that it has already begun a phase I trial of its siRNA-based age-related macular degeneration drug Cand5.

Mirus has recently launched an online store.

All of the Mirus’ reagent products, including its TransIt nucleic acid delivery and Label It nucleic acid labeling technologies, can now be purchased on the company’s website.
