      Nucleotide and in particular RNA-therapeutics are of increasing importance. With Inclisiran (PMID: 27959715), we have a first small interfering RNA (siRNA) therapeutic for the blocking of PCSK9 translation in clinical practice for lowing of LDL-cholesterol. More recently, CRISPR Cas9 encoding RNA with concomitant single guide RNA targeting misfolded transthyretin (TTR) has demonstrated clinical efficacy in patients with TTR amyloidosis (PMID: 34215024). Numerous RNA therapeutics will follow (PMID: 36329321; PMID: 33816449), riding also on the clinical experienced gained from modRNA development for COVID vaccination, because they are easy to develop and can be precisely targeted as highly specific therapies.
