The approval of mRNA vaccine technique against COVID-19 opens a door to research and the creation of new drugs against different infectious pathologies or even cancer, since for several diseases the therapeutic options are limited, and different viral diseases are treated only symptomatically. For these reasons, this study proposed a hypothesis supported by biological studies, that it provides a theoretical basis for the possible development of a drug that used the mRNA technique and the ribonucleolytic action of a ribonuclease for a possible antiviral therapy, and analyzed a future perspective of this technique in order to provide a bibliographic basis on this hypothesis and motivate researchers to carry out biological studies on this topic.
