PREMIER Biosoft International Releases
Version 2 of TMA Foresight, a Statistical Tool for Tissue
Microarray Data Analysis.
Palo Alto, California -- May 16, 2007,
PREMIER Biosoft International today announced the release
of version 2 of its new product, TMA Foresight. TMA
Foresight is a statistical tool for tissue microarray
data analysis designed especially for pathologists,
clinicians and researchers.
TMA Foresight can be used for a wide variety of analysis
ranging from simple descriptive statistics that include
mean, sum, frequency count and variance to more advanced
data correlation such as correlation analysis, hierarchical
clustering and Kaplan Meier plots. You can explore the
relatedness of prognostic marker expression and clinico-pathological
variates with the outcome. Cox's proportional hazard
analysis can be used for prognostic marker identification.
Hierarchical clustering can be used to group patients
on the basis of a clinico-pathological parameter or
a biomarker. Kaplan-Meier plots and log-rank tests can
then be used to identify prognostically significant
clusters. Principal Component Analysis can be used to
analyze complex data sets with ease and correlation
analysis can be used to measure the association of variables.
TMA Foresight enables easy data pre-processing. It
helps map the character data to numeric values with
a click of a button. Moreover, the measurement level
of each variable can be conveniently defined for use
in different statistical analysis.
Says Kay Brown, V.P. Business Development and Marketing,
"The tissue microarray market, is predicted to
grow at 42% per year. We have designed TMA Foresight
seeing the need for an easy-to-use specialized data
analysis software tool. Version 2 is equipped with a
host of advanced statistical tools, designed for pathologists,
clinicians and researchers."
