"Our innovation in RNA-based drug discovery has enabled us to create a broad and extensive patent position that covers many key discoveries for the RNA therapeutic space. The breadth and depth of our patent estate has allowed us to create a number of relationships, such as the one we have with Alnylam, that enhance our leadership in the field. Our technology supports RNA-based drug discovery efforts for us and our partners and allows our partners access to our technology. To date we have generated well over $400 million from the sales and licensing of our intellectual property, including more than $50 million from Alnylam's collaborations," said B. Lynne Parshall, chief operating officer at Isis.
