Breast Cancer: Sandy’s story

• Sandy’s cancer, first diagnosed in 1992, recurred in 2002 in her liver, bone and lungs.
• Standard therapies were no longer working, so she tried tumour profiling, to identify personalised medicine.
• Anti-cancer drugs identified through molecular profiling, have managed her cancer and given her the time to experience her children’s graduations, marriages and birth of grandchildren.


Colon Cancer: Melanie’s story

• Melanie experienced cancer, recurring at different sites for seven years.
• Caris tumour profiling of her colorectal cancer revealed it had markers common to breast and kidney cancer.
• She’s doing well, after receiving targeted therapies, usually used to treat completely different types of cancer.


Kidney Cancer: Doug’s story

• Doug was given one year to live when first diagnosed with cancer
• He had molecular profiling of his cancer’s DNA, RNA and proteins performed with Caris
• Years later, he’s “doing well”, watching his grandchildren grow up.


Why is tumour profiling different?

• Tumour profiling provides unique information to enable personalised cancer treatment.
• Caris Life Sciences uses a multi-technology platform to generate the most comprehensive tumour profile available.
• Fast reliable results identify new treatment options for patients who have not responded to the standard of care therapy.
