Patients are at the center of everything we do.

Caris was founded with a very simple but powerful purpose – to help improve the lives of as many people as possible. Our advanced tumor profiling approach analyzes your DNA, RNA and proteins to better understand your cancer at the molecular level. This information can help your oncologist figure out where the error in the cells may be occurring and what treatments may be the most effective.

What is Molecular Profiling?

No two tumors are alike. Therefore, it is imperative to have as much information about your cancer as possible in order to make personalized treatment choices. Molecular profiling can identify biomarkers in your tumor that provide important insights on whether your tumor may or may not respond to specific drugs or clinical trials.

Biomarkers are many different compounds in the body that indicate something about your health. Cancer biomarkers are typically proteins, genes and other molecules that affect how cancer cells grow, multiply, die and respond to treatment. Some cancer biomarkers can be used to predict how aggressively your cancer will grow and are useful for determining your prognosis. These biomarkers can also be used to identify the therapies most likely to target the cancer cells in your tumor.

When a sample from your tumor undergoes molecular profiling, your oncologist receives a report that lists the molecular biomarkers that make up your tumor. This unique information can help your oncologist personalize your treatment plan by predicting which treatments your cancer is likely to respond to.

How Caris Molecular Profiling works.

  1. Your tumor or blood sample is sent to our laboratory, where it’s analyzed through a series of advanced molecular profiling tests to identify the unique biomarkers of your cancer – your molecular profile.
  2. Advanced bioinformatics, combining molecular data and AI, is used to identify which treatments your cancer is likely or not likely to respond to.
  3. Within a few days, your oncologist will receive a molecular profiling report.
  4. You and your oncologist can use this report to develop a personalized treatment plan, based on your cancer’s unique characteristics.
