A central tissue archive will help advance research on cancer in dogs, according to a recent Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association article.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Colorado State University and Ohio State University will collect cancer specimens from dogs for a central tissue repository as part of the National Cancer Institute’s new Canine Comparative Oncology Genomics Consortium.

Veterinary centers will collect the tissue and blood samples from companion dogs as part of diagnostic or surgical work-ups. The consortium will make samples from the collection available to researchers, subject to approval.

Cancer samples will include osteosarcoma, lymphoma and melanoma.

A total of 10 sample providers are expected to be recruited. The consortium’s goal is to collect samples from 3,000 dogs with cancer over the next three years.
