Real World Evidence What is it? From Human Cancer Care to Veterinary Cancer Care
In human oncology, there has been a growing focus on analyzing data gathered from routine care, leading to a new field called real world evidence (RWE), which has taken off in recent years. The RWE approaches being used in human oncology can also be applied in the veterinary space.

Mining Similarities in Osteosarcoma Between Children and Dogs
Biologically, the osteosarcoma that dogs develop is remarkably similar to that in children. In new research, dogs are aiding the fight against bone cancer.
Study of Cancer in Dogs May Accelerate Treatment for Humans
Comparative oncology — the study of naturally developing cancers in animals as models for human disease — has been practiced for decades. However, conducting clinical trials on the spontaneous cancers of people’s pet dogs is a relatively new concept. The effort has gained traction with a concerted effort on the part of academic centers and...
Learning From Dogs With Cancer
Research in dogs will help with the design of later human trials, including the best way to administer drugs, and may lead to improved treatments for both pets and people.
Far-Reaching Benefits from Canine Cancer Research
A study mapping genes associated with two cancers common in golden retrievers could lead to better prevention and treatment of the disease in dogs as well as similar cancers in people.
