To fulfill the promise of precision medicine and to facilitate a deeper understanding of the biology of cancer and other complex diseases, Caris Life Sciences® has developed a patented and proprietary biotargeting system. ADAPT Biotargeting System™ measures millions of molecular interactions within complex biological systems for drug target identification, therapeutic discovery and development, companion diagnostics, blood-based cancer screening, and biomarker identification.
Caris Life Sciences also pioneered the first molecular testing offering to help physicians make more informed treatment decisions. As the industry leader, our comprehensive tumor profiling approach assesses DNA, RNA and Proteins to reveal the molecular drivers of cancer that serves as a blueprint to enable the delivery of personalized medicine.
FDA Breakthrough Device Designation
Caris has received U.S. FDA Breakthrough Device designation for MI Transcriptome companion diagnostic (CDx) test. Designed to detect gene fusions in solid tumors, the test is intended to assist clinicians in identifying patients who may benefit from treatment with specific targeted therapies.
Caris Life Sciences Acquires Pharmatech
Caris has acquired Pharmatech, Inc., and is changing the paradigm from the traditional physician outreach model to a real-time approach where patient identification is completed at the lab and the physician is informed so that the patient can be enrolled days earlier, and remain in the local physician's care, without having to travel to a large central trial site.
Tissue (Gold Standard) v. cfDNA
Although liquid biopsy (blood) profiling to detect and characterize cancer from fragments of circulating tumor DNA continues to emerge as a clinically useful tool (PLoS1, NILE2, etc.), solid tissue profiling remains the gold standard and produces the most reliable results.
When the next step in treatment is uncertain, Caris Life Sciences illuminates a clearer path to personalized treatment selection with our industry leading, patented and proprietary offering, Caris Molecular Intelligence. Also, learn how we are pioneering a new era in drug development and advanced diagnostics with our proprietary ADAPT Biotargeting System.Enable Precision Medicine
Although cancer treatments have significantly advanced over the years, current cancer care options are failing too many patients. It's time to treat cancer smarter. An analysis of your cancer with Caris Molecular Intelligence may identify biomarkers that could lead towards a better understanding of what is causing your cancer to grow and inform personalized treatments to specifically target your cancer.Visit Patients Page
