Rosetta Genomics receives patent for ovarian cancer treatment Rosetta Genomics announces receipt of a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for U.S. Patent Application No. 13/977,797, entitled "Compositions and Methods for Treatment of Ovarian Cancer." The patent relates to inhibition of miR-210 for the treatment of ovarian cancer. Treatment for advanced ovarian carcinoma is typically based on the combination of surgery and chemotherapy. The objective of surgical intervention in patients suffering from advanced disease is to perform cyto-reduction to minimal residual disease in the abdominal cavity. Surgery is followed by adjuvant platinum based chemotherapy. Although 80%-90% of patients initially respond to first line treatment, most will either progress during therapy or recur after complete remission. Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other gynecologic cancer.
