Rosetta Genomics' Cancer Origin Test Highlighted at Landmark CUP Foundation Seminar 2014

International Medical Seminar Highlights the Management, Treatment, Diagnosis and Future Perspectives of Cancer of Unknown Primary

PRINCETON, NJ and REHOVOT, ISRAEL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/21/14 -- Rosetta Genomics Ltd. (NASDAQ: ROSG), a leading developer and provider of microRNA-based molecular diagnostics, reports that the Company is sponsoring and participating in the CUP Foundation seminar 2014 taking place from March 21-22 in London, England. This international medical seminar highlights the management, treatment, diagnosis and future perspectives of Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP) by some of the world's leading clinicians for CUP and is supported by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and the European School of Oncology.

E. Robert Wassman, MD, FAAP, FACMG, Rosetta Genomics' Chief Medical Officer, delivered a presentation on the role of molecular profiling and new diagnostic technologies in discussion Module Two entitled, "Diagnostic challenges, subsets, and prognosis," taking place on Friday, March 21st from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. local time.

"We are delighted to participate in and support this important seminar in which we demonstrated how molecular profiling and other new diagnostic technologies can help to resolve the diagnostic conundrum of CUP. By accurately identifying the primary tumor origin, physicians will be able to make more informed decisions to select the best treatment choices to optimize patient outcomes. We applaud the efforts of the CUP Foundation in hosting this meeting, which provided valuable information and resources to patients, physicians and care givers," commented Dr. Wassman.

Rosetta's Cancer Origin Test™ is the company's second-generation microRNA-based diagnostic for the identification of the primary site of metastatic cancer, specifically metastatic cancer of CUP. The Cancer Origin Test utilizes custom-designed microarray technology to identify 49 possible cancer origins with very high accuracy using 64 microRNAs. These 49 origins include carcinomas, soft tissue tumors, lymphoma and other malignancies.
