PRINCETON, NJ and REHOVOT, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - Rosetta Genomics Ltd. (NASDAQ: ROSG), a leading developer and provider of microRNA-based molecular diagnostics and therapeutics, announced that the New York State Department of Health ("NYSDOH") has given the Company final approval for its Rosetta Kidney Cancer Test
A blinded independent validation set of 200 samples was studied to measure the performance of the Rosetta Kidney Cancer Test. Of the 184 samples that produced a result, 174 were classified correctly demonstrating 95% accuracy or sensitivity, with 98% specificity.
"There are approximately 65,000 new cases of primary kidney tumors and 13,000 deaths per year in the United States, and the incidence is rising. Unfortunately, nearly 25% of patients who have a kidney removed for presumptive RCC, turn out to have benign oncocytomas, which are safely monitored without nephrectomy. This failure of pre-operative diagnosis is in part the result of the small number of pre-operative biopsies, as only about 9-10% of patients have a pre-operative biopsy. We believe there is an opportunity to improve the standard-of-care in this setting through the use of our assay," said Kenneth A. Berlin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rosetta Genomics.
"Differential diagnosis between various types of kidney tumors remains challenging and can lead not only to unnecessary surgeries, but also the introduction of new, molecularly-targeted therapeutics makes the correct identification of these subtypes critically important for treatment choice and for patient selection for clinical trials of new therapeutics in development. With a sensitivity of 95% and a specificity of 98%, we are confident this assay can be a useful tool for pathologists and oncologists and we are very pleased to have final approval to market this important cancer diagnostic for the benefit of physicians and patients in New York," concluded Mr. Berlin.

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
