The present invention relates to compositions and methods for inhibiting loss of a retinal ganglion cell in a subject, comprising non-invasively applying to the surface of the eye of the subject an ophthalmic composition comprising a therapeutically effective amount of at least one siRNA which down regulates expression of a target gene associated with loss of the retinal ganglion cell, thereby inhibiting loss of the retinal ganglion cell in the subject. The methods of the invention also relate to the use of chemically modified siRNA compounds possessing structural motifs which down-regulate the expression of human genes expressed in retinal tissue in the mammalian eye.

The invention relates to a double-stranded compound, preferably an oligoribonucleotide, which down-regulates the expression of a human p53 gene. The invention also relates to a pharmaceutical composition comprising the compound, or a vector capable of expressing the oligoribonucleotide compound, and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. The present invention also contemplates a method of treating a patient suffering from alopecia or acute renal failure or other diseases comprising administering to the patient the pharmaceutical composition in a therapeutically effective dose so as to thereby treat the patient. The alopecia may be induced by chemotherapy or radiotherapy, and the patient may be suffering from cancer, in particular breast cancer.
