Small interference RNA (si RNA) is a promising therapeutic module which is making a big news due to its safe & efficus mode of action. SiRNA is offering better therapeutic interventions in the areas like AIDS, hepatitis, cancer, Hypertension etc. Its mode of action involves the blockade of protein synthesis which does not harm the treated organ but prevents key proteins mediating pathogenesis of the disease. There are products available for the treatment of age related macular degenerative disease for prevention of loss of vision. Here it is going to halt the production of a key pathogenic protein vegus (vascular endothelial growth factor). Many of the products are under various stages of clinical trial. There is a break through in medicine &therapeutics which is truly a biotechnological intervention.
