RNA Therapeutics Overview

RNA therapeutics are known to target specific genetic sequences of individual patients, in order to provide more effective treatment options for a wide range of disorders, with fewer side effects. These therapies are currently being developed using different types of RNA-based molecules, including coding RNAs (such as mRNA) and non-coding RNAs (such as interfering RNAs (RNAi), antisense oligonucleotides (ASO) and RNA aptamers). The development of RNA-based therapeutics initially gained momentum in 2004, with the approval of the first RNA based therapeutic modality, Macugen (developed by Eyetech Pharmaceutics and Pfizer), which was intended for the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration. However, despite the potential benefits offered by this therapeutic modality, the unique challenges associated with drug delivery, manufacturing, logistics and storage led to a decline in the popularity of RNA therapies post the initial rise in early 2000s. Consequently, some activity in this domain was reported in 2018, when ONPATTRO (developed by Alnylam Pharmaceuticals) received approval from USFDA and EMA; this RNAi therapy was intended for the treatment of hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (hATTR), a rare and life-threatening disorder. Subsequently, it was the phenomenal success of mRNA therapies against the COVID-19 pandemic which fully reignited the interest of general public, patients, healthcare providers and investors in this market. For instance, in 2021 and 2022, two mRNA vaccines intended for COVID-19 received emergency use approvals from the USFDA; these were BNT162b2 (developed by BioNTech and Pfizer) and mRNA-1273 (developed by Moderna). In addition, RNA therapeutics have shown promising results in the treatment of rare diseases, particularly neurological and hepatic diseases. In fact, 80% of such therapies being evaluated in late stages of clinical development have received the orphan drug designation. This further showcases the potential of RNA therapeutics to actualize the concept of personalized medicine in the foreseen future.

RNA therapies have emerged as a promising treatment modality, with the potential to target and alter genes, modulate protein function and broaden the range of druggable targets, thereby, paving way for new avenues in disease diagnosis and treatment. Foreseeing these opportunities, numerous start-ups have been established in the last few years, indicating the growing interest in this sector. Owing to the rising demand for better therapeutic options and increasing adoption rate of such therapies, the investment focus for RNA therapeutics has increased significantly. In fact, since 2011, a total of over USD 16 billion was raised by RNA-based drug developers to advance their pipeline candidates. It is worth highlighting that, amongst the RNA therapeutics investors, majority of the investments have been led by mRNA vaccines investors and mRNA therapeutics investors. This is followed by RNAi therapeutics investors and RNA aptamers investors. Driven by the rise in government initiatives for early commercialization of pipeline therapeutics and active involvement of RNA therapeutics investors, we anticipate a variety of novel RNA based therapeutics to be developed, presenting lucrative investment opportunities for both short- and long-term investors.
