Silence Therapeutics Signs Collaboration With Mirna Therapeutics to Evaluate Delivery of Novel microRNA Therapeutics
Date:10/23/2011

iRNAs, as Silence has clearly been shown to be at the forefront of efficient and safe delivery of siRNAs and miRNAs, a process critical to the ultimate success of what promises to be a new and exciting class of targeted cancer therapeutics. Mirna has developed a strong intellectual property position in the therapeutic use of miRNAs in cancer, and has established a broad pipeline of key tumor suppressor miRNAs as potential new targeted therapeutic candidates against both solid and haematological cancers. An efficient delivery technology that provides for systemic delivery of therapeutically effective dose-levels of these miRNAs to their intended targets is a key element in their potential success in the clinic."

Silence's proprietary lipid delivery technology AtuPLEX™ has demonstrated the broad systemic delivery to the vascular endothelium. Formulations generated with the AtuPLEX™ technology can be lyophilized (freeze dried) significantly improving stability, shipping and handling.

Silence is currently conducting a Phase I trial with Atu027 which is based on AtuPLEX™ in patients with advanced solid cancer. Interim data analysis from this trial were presented at the 2011 American Society of Clinical Oncology conference and showed that Atu027 is safe and well tolerated and provided broad support for AtuPLEX™ as an effective siRNA delivery technology with the potential to overcome the recognized delivery challenges currently associated with RNAi therapeutics.

DBTC is the latest delivery system developed by scientists at Silence and allows functional targeted delivery to the liver. Unlike Silence's established delivery technologies, DBTC is a novel lipid-based formulation that functionally delivers to liver endothelial cells, hepatocytes and to other cell types of the liver. As with AtuPLEX™, DBTC can be lyophilized.
