New Product Names for MicroRNA-based Diagnostics

Prometheus also unveiled new product names at ASCO for three recently introduced microRNA-based diagnostics:

  • ProOnc TumorSource Dx (sold as miRview(TM) mets outside the U.S.), a test designed to accurately identify the primary tumor site in patients with metastatic cancer;
  • ProOnc Squamous Dx (sold as miRview(TM) squamous outside the U.S.), a test to differentiate squamous from non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer; and
  • ProOnc Mesothelioma Dx (sold as miRview(TM) meso outside the U.S.), a test to differentiate mesothelioma, a cancer connected to asbestos exposure, from other carcinomas in the lung and pleura.

The Company acquired exclusive U.S. rights to the three tests from Rosetta Genomics in April 2009.
