"The grant will enable us to leverage the power of genomics technologies and comparative oncology to develop predictive models of how a canine malignancy will respond to chemotherapeutic treatment, based on the tumor's molecular profile."
Nationwide Children's Hospital with Helene Le Pommellet, DMV, Resident, The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine
“Kids and animals often develop very similar types of cancer. When pediatricians, scientists, and veterinarians work together, research can improve treatments not only for children, but for their ‘best friends’ too.”
DVM, MS, DACVIM (Oncology), Director of Clinical Trials, Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center
"The grant allows our team to investigate the effects of AF in tumor-bearing dogs to establish a biologically effective dose, which has near-term benefit in the treatment of dogs with lymphoma and is a translational model for human cancer."
DVM, PhD, Assistant Professor of Comparative and Radiation Oncology, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University
“By bridging human & veterinary medicine at Tufts, we have created a unique opportunity to promote cancer research to benefit both pets and people. With ACF's help, we can advance our studies & demonstrate the value in this approach.”
DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVIM (Oncology Specialty) Dolores L. McCall Professor of Comparative Oncology, Purdue University
"Bladder cancer has not been a focus of human studies, but the ACF-supported work in dogs is now providing strong justification to consider this approach for human bladder cancer as well as other human cancers."
