As the fields of genetics, medicine and therapeutics continue to converge, the management of illness at its genetic source by silencing genes via RNA interference (RNAi) holds the very real potential to revolutionize treatment on a scale not seen in decades. Tekmira is one of a handful of biotech companies around the world working to exploit the potential of RNAi to treat disease. And it is from among these unique companies that the next wave of therapeutic breakthroughs will emerge.

 Tekmira is uniquely equipped to become a leading force in the field. Guided by a cohesive vision, the company possesses leading technology capabilities and a solid intellectual property portfolio in the area of lipid-based nucleic acid delivery, known as SNALP (Stable Nucleic Acid Lipid Particles) to deliver siRNAs (small interfering RNAs) as well as other oligonucleotides in the treatment of disease.

With one RNAi drug candidate in clinical development and another in late preclinical development,  plus a pipeline of up to five additional targets made possible through an agreement with RNAi leader Alnylam, Tekmira is well positioned to aggressively advance its product development strategy. In addition to Alnylam, Roche, Merck and Regulus all have access to Tekmira's technology in the delivery of siRNAs and microRNAs.

Finally, broad manufacturing capabilities and a strong capital position permit the company to move forward decisively and build a solid base for both near and longer term growth.




Important Company Highlights: 

Tekmira's siRNA delivery technology platform is termed SNALP for "stable nucleic acid-lipid particles". SNALP are specialized lipid nanoparticles that fully encapsulate and systemically deliver a variety of nucleic acid molecules such as siRNA. Pre-clinical studies have shown them to be effective in delivering the drug to target organs and into cells where the nucleic acid-based drug can carry out its desired effect while minimizing systemic toxicity.

SNALP technology relies on something called the "enhanced permeability and retention effect", which occurs because these nucleic acid-containing particles have a long circulation time in the blood, resulting in increased accumulation at sites of vascular leak such as those found at sites of tumor cell growth, infection or inflammation. Once at the target site, cells take up the SNALP through endocytosis and the nucleic acid payload is delivered inside the cell resulting in unparalleled potency.
