Blood-Based Circulating Microvesicles (cMV) Data to be Presented at the 2013 International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV)

IRVING, Texas, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Caris Life Sciences™, a leading biosciences company focused on fulfilling the promise of personalized medicine, today announced that five data presentations related to blood-based circulating microvesicles (cMVs) will be presented this week at the 2013 International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV) meeting in Boston, Mass.

This research is part of the company's development efforts for its Carisome® platform, which uses a novel, proprietary method to rapidly and accurately identify and characterize potential disease-associated circulating microvesicles found in the blood. This unique and promising technology platform has the potential for direct clinical utility in early diagnostic testing and disease and treatment monitoring in cancer patients.

"Caris Life Sciences is pioneering major advances in understanding and characterizing circulating microvesicles, as well as determining the ways in which their application to patient care could increase the accuracy of diagnosis and better guide therapeutic planning," said Joachim Schorr , Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Caris Life Sciences. "We believe our research efforts in this area hold tremendous potential across a broader array of diseases, including cancer, and represent a groundbreaking opportunity to fundamentally change the way medicine is practiced."

ISEV will feature the following Caris Life Sciences poster presentations, along with one oral presentation:
