Treating Your Cancer Smarter
Give yourself the best chance of finding the right treatment using the most advanced molecular profiling tools
Caris Molecular Intelligence performs thorough molecular testing on DNA, RNA and proteins, utilising the most technically advanced systems, including the world’s first AI predictors, to identify the biomarkers relevant for optimised treatment decisions in a patient’s tumour, and to compare the biomarkers with data from clinical studies around the world. This is a powerful asset to aid clinical decisions regarding individual cancer therapies. Caris Molecular Intelligence enables clinicians to:
What are biomarkers?
A biomarker is any physical characteristic of the human body that can be measured. Your blood pressure is a biomarker. A haemoglobin level is a biomarker. Some biomarkers can be linked to a particular diagnosis, to disease outcomes, or to response to medication or other therapy. In oncology, important biomarkers that can be measured include the DNA, RNA, and protein within a tumour. These biomarkers can be used to make a diagnosis, to predict cancer aggressiveness, or to predict that a particular therapy will be effective.
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is a molecule inside the cell that carries genetic information and passes it on from one generation to the next. DNA biomarkers can be evaluated for aberrations such as gene mutations or copy number alterations (e.g. gene amplification) that can cause a cancer cell to proliferate.
RNA (ribonucleic acid) contains information that has been copied from DNA. RNA biomarkers can be interrogated for gene fusions or a clinically relevant variant transcript which are commonly matched with FDA-approved medications.
Proteins are comprised of amino acids. In normal cells, they support proper body functioning and are the basis of body structures such as skin and hair. In cancer, evaluating protein expression provides information on cancer type, optimal treatment, and can assess treatment efficacy.
