IRVING, Texas, March 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Caris Life Sciences®, a leading innovator in molecular science focused on fulfilling the promise of precision medicine, today announced the acceptance of four abstracts, including two featured poster presentations, for presentation at the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) Annual Meeting on Women's Cancer, being held March 24–27, 2018, in New Orleans, LA. The studies were conducted in collaboration with industry-leading academic and clinical institutions employing the company's proprietary Caris Molecular Intelligence® Comprehensive Genomic Profiling Plus (CGP+) tumor profiling platform that assesses DNA, RNA and proteins to aid clinicians in delivering the most optimal and personalized treatment plan for each patient.

"The success of immunotherapies is opening a new era in the treatment of gynecologic tumors. Caris is leading the way in identifying patients more likely to respond to these drugs with our PD-L1, MSI and TMB testing," said W. Michael Korn, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Caris Life Sciences. "We are excited to be a part of the annual SGO meeting where we can share our experience with these important biomarkers across several gynecologic cancer types."
