Global Antisense and RNAi Therapeutics Market 2015-2019: Key Vendors are Alnylam, Isis, Sanofi and Tekmira

Dublin, Dec. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vnzsbl/global_antisense) has announced the addition of the "Global Antisense and RNAi Therapeutics Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

Antisense and RNAi therapeutics are new innovative therapeutics options that are used in the treatment of serious chronic and rare diseases. RNAi is a RNA-based gene silencing process in which RNA molecules inhibit gene expression by destructing definite mRNA molecules. Antisense technology involves the synthesis of a strand of nucleic acid that would bind to an mRNA or to a splicing site on pre-mRNA and inactivates it effectively.

RNAi and antisense are two predominant technologies used by pharmaceutical companies, research institutes, and others for various applications such as research, diagnostics, and therapeutics. RNAi therapeutics have a large scope in the treatment of diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. There are two types of RNA molecules used in the RNAi technology: miRNA and siRNA.

The analysts forecast the Global Antisense and RNAi Therapeutics market to grow at a CAGR of 26.79 percent over the period 2014-2019.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Antisense and RNAi Therapeutics market for the period 2015-2019. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of antisense and RNAi therapeutics used for the treatment of various serious chronic diseases including:

  • Infectious diseases
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Kidney diseases
  • Cancer
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Others

One of the main trends upcoming in this market is the increased strategic collaborations and licensing activities. Many big pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are collaborating with other companies to develop and commercialize antisense and RNAi drugs in the market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the advances in technology. Demand for gene silencing by antisense and RNAi is gaining popularity because of its high efficiency. Advances in technology in antisense and RNAi technology help to design and develop antisense and RNAi therapeutics that can suppress the expression of the targeted genes with high specificity.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the toxicity of antisense and RNAi-based drugs. Therapeutic antisense oligonucleotides and RNAi drugs have adverse side effects on the body especially on the liver.
