Basically, what are the current practical impacts of RNAi on the world? What are names of some drugs that use RNAi?

etc.

Most of it is research to reduce the expression of a protein. It appears to be more specific than antisense DNA although I am not sure that is still really always the case. A practical application, which I recently saw is to transform bacteria with a plasmid expressing siRNA. The bacteria (Salmonella) attack preferentially tumor cells and the plasmid is released within the tumor cells.
