A field of study known as “comparative oncology” is emerging as a promising means to help cure cancer. Comparative oncology researchers study the similarities between naturally occurring cancers in pets and cancers in people in order to provide clues to treat cancer more effectively, and is particularly hopeful in cancers children and dogs both develop.
Our four-legged furry friends may have even more benefits than being a faithful and loving companion, as CnK's Dr. Cheryl London & team from the Tufts University and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), an affiliate of City of Hope, have just uncovered that a rare bone cancer in children—known as osteosarcoma (OS)— is genetically similar in dogs. The researchers are optimistic that the findings could help break the logjam in the treatment of this deadly disease, which hasn’t seen a significant medical breakthrough in nearly three decades.
