Sirnaomics Receives SBIR Grant from NIH/NCI for Its Multi-Targeted Lung Cancer siRNA Therapeutics
Date:7/22/2009

GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirnaomics, Inc. (www.sirnaomics.com) announced today that the company has received an SBIR (small business innovation research) grant from National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institute of Health (NIH), for its novel siRNA therapeutics to treat lung cancer. Sirnaomics, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company founded in early 2007, is dedicated to advancing RNA interference (RNAi) Technology for novel targeted therapeutic development. The company's multi-targeted siRNA therapeutic programs utilizing its nanoparticle-enhanced delivery technologies represent a unique approach for truly realizing the advantages of small interfering RNA (siRNA)-based drugs to treat various critical human diseases. Sirnaomics has successfully attracted grants from NIH and the State of Maryland.

RNAi has emerged as a fundamentally important biological phenomenon and as a versatile, powerful tool for biomedical research. RNAi plays a multifaceted role in molecular biology by silencing genes through chromatin remodeling, interfering with protein synthesis, and in its best-studied mode of action quashing gene expression by cleaving messenger RNA. Experimental applications of RNAi have spurred the exploration of gene function in basic research, drug discovery and clinical settings. The 2006 Nobel Prize for medicine and physiology and a number of corporate acquisitions and investments by Novartis, Merck, AstraZeneca, Roche and Takeda have injected billions of dollars into this novel technology and further fueled the enthusiasm for the great promise of siRNA therapeutic development. There are more than a dozen clinical trials currently ongoing for various types of therapeutic applications.

Sirnaomics' mission is to advance RNAi technology by using its proprietary multi-targeted siRNA cocktail design together with the company's nanoparticle-mediated siRNA delivery vehicles in the rapid delivery
