Caris Life Sciences and Syapse Collaborate to Aggregate Oncology Data

Caris Life Sciences and Syapse announced a collaboration to collect and combine molecular and genomic information with clinical treatment and outcomes data across the Caris Centers of Excellence for Precision Medicine Network (COE Network). The COE Network consists of cancer centers that have demonstrated a commitment to precision medicine and are working collaboratively to establish improved standards of care for molecular tumor profiling in oncology. Integration of Caris Molecular Intelligence, Caris' panomic, comprehensive tumor profiling service, with the Syapse Precision Medicine Platform, will provide a powerful real-time, point-of-care, clinical decision support system to enable more informed treatment decisions for each individual patient. Participating COE Network sites can use the integrated decision support system, and may use Syapse to further support their complete precision medicine workflows. The collaboration enables patient outcomes data to be combined with the most comprehensive and clinically actionable molecular profile available. Caris Molecular Intelligence uses multiple technology platforms, including a proprietary 592-gene Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) panel with full gene coverage to assess point mutations, indels, and copy number variations, alongside RNAseq, for select gene fusions, in addition to Immunohistochemistry (IHC), in situ Hybridization (ISH), and other platforms. This comprehensive interrogation of DNA, RNA, and protein expression enables Caris to include critical companion diagnostics for biomarkers such as ALK, ROS, HER2 and PDL1, and to provide associations for three key therapeutic classes: targeted therapies, immunotherapies and chemotherapeutics. Under the agreement, Syapse software will be used to enable the COE Network to develop a better understanding of cancer and the most effective means of treatment and to provide patients with better access to new therapies and clinical trials. Select COE Network members will use Syapse to capture key oncology-specific clinical data from electronic medical records, integrate clinical data with Caris Molecular Intelligence tumor profiling results, and aggregate de-identified data into Caris' centralized instance of the Syapse Precision Medicine Platform for sharing across the COE Network. In addition, Syapse will enable COE Network members to participate in virtual tumor boards, where they can review cases, capture guidance, and disseminate knowledge throughout the Network.
