Double-stranded RNA has become a ubiquitous tool for inhibition of gene expression in the laboratory. If similar success could be achieved in vivo, duplex RNA might provide a new class of therapeutics capable of treating a broad spectrum of disease. Chemists and biologists developing duplex RNA as a drug have made progress but continue to face challenges. This review presents the current status of duplex RNA in the clinic and comments on future prospects for the approach.
