    Despite their relatively lower efficiency, nonviral approaches are emerging as safer alternatives in gene therapy to viral vectors. Delivery of nucleic acids to the target site is an important factor for effective gene expression (plasmid DNA) or knockdown (siRNA) with minimal side effects....

  • Targeted Delivery of siRNA. Oliveira, Sabrina; Storm, Gert; Schiffelers, Raymond M. // Journal of Biomedicine & Biotechnology;2006 Special Issue 3, p1 

    Therapeutic application of siRNA requires delivery to the correct intracellular location, to interact with the RNAi machinery within the target cell, within the target tissue responsible for the pathology. Each of these levels of targeting poses a significant barrier. To overcome these barriers...
