REHOVOT, Israel; JERSEY CITY, New Jersey, October 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Rosetta Genomics Ltd. (Nasdaq:ROSG), a leader in the development of microRNA-based diagnostics, announced today its management will present at Oppenheimer 19th Annual Healthcare Conference taking place November 3-4, 2008 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are recently discovered, naturally occurring, small RNAs that act as master regulators and have the potential to form the basis for a new class of diagnostics and therapeutics. Since many diseases are caused by the abnormal activity of proteins, the ability to selectively regulate protein activity through microRNAs could provide the means to treat a wide range of human diseases. In addition, microRNAs have been shown to have different expression in various pathological conditions. As a result, these differences may provide for a novel diagnostic strategy for many diseases.
