IRVING, Texas, Nov. 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Caris Life Sciences™, Inc., a leading biosciences company focused on enabling precise and personalized healthcare through the highest quality anatomic pathology, molecular profiling, and blood-based diagnostic services, this week presented a clinical poster, "Differences in gene expression between primary chemotherapy-naive prostate carcinomas and hormone-refractory prostate carcinomas," that provides positive results showing molecular profiling's clinical value in helping to inform therapy selection for hormone refractory, or late stage, prostate cancer (HRPCa). The data was derived from a database of more than 25,000 tumors profiled since 2005 across the spectrum of cancers. Transcriptome analysis was done on 14 prostate cancer samples and was presented at the AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics: Discovery, Biology and Clinical Applications.
