NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A team led by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this week published a study describing a new type of nanoparticle capable of delivering siRNAs to endothelial cells, while dodging hepatocytes and immune cells, at doses far lower than previously required.

The siRNA-loaded nanoparticles were also able to mediate highly durable non-liver gene silencing, further opening the door for RNAi as a therapeutic modality in diseases such as cancer and emphysema.
