In collaboration with leading cancer centers, research results to be presented from four studies across a breadth of breast tumor types and genomic alterations demonstrating Caris’ impact on precision medicine
IRVING, Texas, December 4, 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 findings at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) that illustrate the potential impact of molecular profiling on the treatment of breast cancer. The findings demonstrate the power of Caris’ comprehensive clinico-genomic database that enables novel insights into cancer that could have profound effects on a patient’s diagnosis, prognosis, care plan, and response to treatment. SABCS is being held December 5-9, 2023 (Booth #1433) in San Antonio, Texas.
“The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium continues to be the premiere conference for breast cancer research,” said George W. Sledge, Jr., MD, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Caris. “As part of our continuing commitment to the breast cancer community, Caris is proud to share important clinical/translational research created with our academic partners on important breast cancer questions.”
Presentations and posters from Caris include:
“Precision oncology in breast cancer is rapidly evolving with the recent approval of several targeted therapies that rely on the detection of molecular biomarkers to inform selection. On the horizon are novel genomic and AI based approaches that will further shape the future treatment of this disease,” said Dr. Radovich. “This education session at SABCS will highlight advances in new drug modalities and targetable pathways; liquid biopsies and clonal hematopoiesis; emerging evidence on treatment resistance; and the forefront of AI-enabled digital pathology for biomarker detection.”
In the featured study, the molecular and immunological landscapes of male and female breast cancer were investigated across 10,728 breast cancer samples (male, n=137; female, n=10,591) using Caris’ Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology. The results of this analysis indicate that male breast cancer has differential molecular and immune features compared to female breast cancer. A better understanding of these sex-based differences may help inform disease outcomes, provide a rationale for tailored therapeutic approaches, and guide the design of future treatments.
“The Caris Precision Oncology Alliance™ continues its contribution to advancing breast cancer research by presenting novel findings on the molecular and immunological features of male breast cancer at this year’s SABCS,” said Chadi Nabhan, MD, MBA, FACP, Chairman of the POA. “By leveraging Caris’ expansive real-world clinico-genomic database, our partner academic institutions are able to uncover new insights into the underpinnings of breast cancer biology leading to better therapeutic interventions.”
The POA includes 90 cancer centers, academic institutions, research consortia and healthcare systems, including 42 NCI-designated cancer centers, collaborating to advance precision oncology and biomarker-driven research. POA members work together to establish and optimize standards of care for molecular testing through innovative research focused on predictive and prognostic markers that improve the clinical outcomes for cancer patients.
Additional Presentations Reveal Potential Impact of Comprehensive Molecular Profiling
Caris will present additional data from studies demonstrating the critical role of precision medicine and molecular profiling in the treatment of breast cancer. All presentations will be made available online through Caris’ website beginning December 7.
