    AZN - Moderna

    Yesterday's deal was pretty interesting. 240 million for a new type of messenger RNA tech. This is kind of the opposite of RNAi. Create new proteins to change/treat a disease instead of shutting it down. Interestingly enough it may help tekmira to get more focus on RNA type technologies. And as far as I can tell now they also will need the same kind of delivery to get the mRNA into the cells. Look up patent 20120251618 by Moderna. Lipids/LNP are specifically mentioned
