Title
(EN) Coronavirus iRNA compositions and methods of use thereof
Abstract
(EN)

The present invention relates to RNAi agents, e.g., dsRNA agents, targeting the coronavirus genome. The invention also relates to methods of using such RNAi agents to inhibit expression of a coronavirus genome and to methods of treating or preventing a coronavirus-associated disease in a subject.
