RNA interference (RNAi) is a potent and ubiquitous gene-silencing mechanism that is generating considerable excitement in the fields of molecular biology and gene therapy. It is now in widespread use for loss-of-function analysis in many diseases including cancer. Nevertheless, RNAi is still in its infancy, with new discoveries appearing on a monthly basis. This article presents a brief outline of the history and recent advances in RNAi with a specific focus on its potential in oncology.
