  • Publication number: 20080306881
    Abstract: A method and system are provided for creating an investment vehicle associated with a geographic region, the investment vehicle including a plurality of securities issued by companies. That method comprises forming a set of securities based on inclusion criteria, and categorizing the securities according to geographic region, where the geographic region of a security may be determined based at least in part on the presence of a headquarters location of the issuing company in the geographic region. A predetermined number of securities associated with the geographic region of the investment vehicle are selected from the set of securities for inclusion in the investment vehicle, and the resulting investment vehicle is made available for trading.

  • Publication number: 20030154032
    Abstract: The invention provides methods and compositions for diagnostic assays for detecting R.A. and therapeutic methods and compositions for treating R.A. The invention also provides methods for designing, identifying, and optimizing therapeutics for R.A. Diagnostic compositions of the invention include compositions comprising detection agents for detecting one or more genes that have been shown to be up- or down-regulated in cells of R.A. relative to normal counterpart cells. Exemplary detection agents include nucleic acid probes, which can be in solution or attached to a solid surface, e.g., in the form of a microarray. The invention also provides computer-readable media comprising values of levels of expression of one or more genes that are up- or down-regulated in R.A.
