Benitec – Leader in Gene Silencing Technology
Benitec Ltd. is dedicated to developing therapeutics to treat serious diseases and advancing medical research using DNA-directed RNA interference (ddRNAi). ddRNAi is a proprietary technology developed to trigger the natural gene silencing process called RNA interference (RNAi), a precise and proven process for silencing any gene in any cell of any multicellular organism.
Benitec, a pioneer and the ddRNAi leader, was the first company to trigger RNAi in human cells and whole mammals, and holds a dominant patent estate in the rapidly expanding RNAi field. The Company has continued to expand its proprietary platform by developing a comprehensive suite of technologies to deliver the full potential of ddRNAi. Benitec’s customers and partners are international biopharmaceutical companies and research institutes. The Company is growing through strategic alliances and licensing for high value therapeutic and biomedical applications.
Benitec’s ddRNAi technology provides unique capability and significant competitive advantages for:
• Developing treatments for major diseases such as cancers, autoimmune diseases, HIV/AIDS and other chronic viral infections
• Disease modeling in vitro and in vivo
• Target validation in vitro and in vivo
• High throughput functional genomics.
