Abstract: Efficient intracellular delivery of small-interfering ribonucleic acid (siRNA) to the target organ or tissues in the body is assumed as the main hurdle for a widespread use of siRNAs in the clinics. Solid lipid-based nanoparticles (SLNs) and derivatives can potentially fit this purpose by enabling to overcome the extracellular and intracellular physiological barriers affecting the delivery. For that, rational formulations and rational process designs are needed. This chapter addresses a comprehensive description and critical appraisal of the main production methods of this particular type of lipid nanoparticles and the leading strategies to prompt a targeted delivery of siRNA.
