Rosetta Forges Collaboration with UC Davis to Validate miRNA Profile for Bladder Cancer


Rosetta Genomics this week announced that it is collaborating with the University of California, Davis, to develop and validate a microRNA profile for muscle-invasive bladder cancer that will help predict how patients will respond to neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

“A secondary goal of the study is to understand the mechanism by which differentially expressed microRNAs mediate chemosensitivity,” Rosetta said.

“Predicting responses to chemotherapy is becoming increasingly important with advances in oncology and
the introduction of molecularly targeted cancer drugs,” Rosetta President and CEO Kenneth Berlin said in a statement.
