Caris Life Sciences to Present In-Depth Research with Leading Cancer Centers Reflecting Its Commitment to Improving Patient Outcomes at ASCO 2022


Research findings from 45 studies involving more than 20 different types of solid tumors demonstrate the impact of Caris’ approach to molecular profiling across the continuum of cancer care

IRVING, TX, May 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Caris life sciences®(Caris), the leading molecular science and technology company actively developing and delivering innovative solutions to revolutionize healthcare today, announced that the company and its partners within its Precision Oncology Alliance™ (POA) will collectively present 45 studies on more than 20 different types of solid tumors at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting of June 3-7, 2022 (Booth #22081).

“The breadth of research presented at ASCO illustrates the power of comprehensive molecular profiling and large-scale collaboration across more than 60 sites to address some of today’s greatest challenges in cancer care and oncology. precision,” said Chadi Nabhan, MD, MBA, FACP, President of the Caris Precision Oncology Alliance. “The results of these studies could help improve outcomes for patients with difficult-to-treat cancers and initiate new approaches to care for diverse tumor types and patient populations.”

“At Caris, our goal is to enable clinicians to make the best treatment choices, researchers to discover new targets, and the biopharmaceutical industry to develop the next breakthrough drugs,” said David Spetzler, MS, Ph.D., MBA, President and Scientific Director of Caris. “These presentations show how our scientists and POA partners are using Caris’ unique AI-based platform – which combines DNA (Whole Exome), RNA (Whole Transcriptome), and protein profiling data. with real-life clinical evidence from over 378,000 lifelong cases – to unravel the complexities of cancer.Ultimately, these discoveries could advance personalized cancer care and improve outcomes for many patients.

The Caris Precision Oncology Alliance includes 65 cancer centers and academic institutions across United States and beyond. These institutions have early access to Caris’ extensive database and artificial intelligence platform to establish evidence-based standards for cancer profiling and molecular testing in oncology. By leveraging the comprehensive genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data available through Caris Molecular Profiling, Caris seeks to provide this network with the ability to prioritize treatment options and determine clinical trial opportunities that may benefit their patients. POA members can also become part of a growing portfolio of biopharma-sponsored biomarker-directed trials. Additionally, as a member of the POA, institutions have access to Caris CODEai™, the industry’s most comprehensive data solution with cancer treatment information and evidence of actual clinical outcomes for over 275,000 patients spanning over one million data points per patient.
