AFAIK, there are no approved therapies that use RNAi against any disease, including cancer.

People are certainly trying to develop such therapies and they can, in principle, be used against cancer, but to date no one has shown such therapies to be safe and effective in clinical trials. There are some promising therapies in clinical trials that may turn out to be safe and effective, but no such therapies have been approved by the FDA yet.
