In collaboration with leading cancer centers, research results to be presented from seven studies across a breadth of tumor types and genomic alterations demonstrating Caris’ impact on precision medicine
IRVING, Texas, October 17, 2023 – Caris Life Sciences® (Caris), the leading next-generation AI TechBio company and precision medicine pioneer that is actively developing and delivering innovative solutions to revolutionize healthcare and improve the human condition using molecular science and AI, today announced that the company and collaborators within the Caris Precision Oncology Alliance™ (POA) will collectively present seven studies across a breadth of tumor types at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2023 in Madrid, Spain from October 20-24, 2023 (Booth #513). The findings demonstrate the power of Caris’ comprehensive clinico-genomic database that enable novel insights into cancer that could have profound effects on a patient’s diagnosis, prognosis, care plan and response to treatment.
“The research being presented at this year’s ESMO Congress is a testament to Caris’ continued commitment to data-driven molecular innovation and large-scale collaboration to answer some of the pressing questions in precision oncology today,” said Chadi Nabhan, M.D., MBA, FACP, Chairman of the Caris POA. “The findings of these studies illustrate the power of comprehensive molecular profiling to identify underlying tumor biology setting the stage for therapeutics that improve patient outcomes. Alongside our POA partners, we are pioneering new approaches to help deliver the right treatments to the right patients at the right time.”
“More than ever before, our comprehensive molecular profiling coupled with rich clinical data is enabling Caris to help clinicians make the best treatment choices, researchers to discover novel cancer biology, and the biopharmaceutical industry to develop the next breakthrough medicines,” said George W. Sledge, Jr., M.D., Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Caris. “Data presented at this year’s ESMO Congress highlight not only our efforts to achieve these goals but also the value of Caris’ comprehensive approach to molecular profiling, built on our extensive data, to better understand the biological hallmarks of cancers and ultimately improve outcomes for all cancer patients.”
Data to be presented by Caris and the POA include the results of a molecular analysis of more than 278,000 tumors that indicate potential new therapeutic opportunities in gastrointestinal cancers. Other notable topics explored in these abstracts include a real-world data analysis of gene expression and outcomes in breast cancer, exploration of the tumor-immune microenvironment in lung cancer, and genomic and immune profiling of patients with a rare and aggressive form of eye cancer:
Abstract summaries of this research will be available onsite at Caris’ booth #513. The full abstracts are available through the official ESMO website.
The POA includes 89 cancer centers, academic institutions, research consortia and healthcare systems. These institutions have early access to the extensive database and artificial intelligence platform within Caris to establish evidence-based standards for cancer profiling and molecular testing in oncology. By leveraging the comprehensive genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic profiling available through Caris molecular profiling, Caris seeks to provide this network with the ability to prioritize therapeutic options and determine which clinical trial opportunities may benefit their patients. POA members are also able to integrate with a growing portfolio of biomarker-directed trials sponsored by biopharma. Additionally, POA member institutions have access to the most comprehensive clinico-genomic database in the industry, which includes matched molecular and clinical outcomes data from hundreds of thousands of cancer patients, covering over 1 million data points per patient.
