Ohio State Research of Animal Tumors May Benefit Humans
Researchers at Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center are collecting canine tumors for a national tissue bank that will shed new information on the prevention, detection and treatment of cancers in humans as well as animals. The university's College of Veterinary Medicine is one of three schools nationwide chosen to work with the National Cancer Institute’s Comparative Oncology Program to establish the tissue bank. Tumors from dogs are collected for the Pfizer-Canine Comparative Oncology Genomics Consortium, says Laura Rush, co-leader of the tissue bank and a member of Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics at the Comprehensive Cancer Center.
