Rosetta Genomics currently has approximately $16M in cash, and it expects to perform approximately 2,000 tests during 2009 in its laboratory in Philadelphia, PA.
The company is now offering the following ground-breaking tests through its clinical lab in Philadelphia:
- miRview(TM) mets - This test can accurately identify the primary tumor site in patients presenting with metastatic cancer, as well in patients with Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP). In the U.S., hundreds of thousands of patients are diagnosed each year with metastatic cancer, and approximately 70,000 patients are labeled CUP patients. miRview(TM) mets is available for $3650. - miRview(TM) squamous - This test differentiates between two subtypes of non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This diagnosis is important as some NSCLC patients have demonstrated varying response patterns ranging from a high incidence of severe or fatal internal bleeding in the lungs to overall poor response to treatment. In the US alone, approximately 170,000 patients are diagnosed each year with NSCLC. miRview(TM) squamous is available for $3170. - miRview(TM) meso - This test differentiates mesothelioma, a cancer connected to asbestos exposure, from other carcinomas in the lung. Currently, there is no single diagnostic test that is entirely conclusive for this differentiation. Each year, approximately 130,000 patients in the United States are diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the lung. miRview(TM) meso is available for $3170.
