Cancer is the second leading cause of death in humans worldwide and the most common cause of death for humans in developed countries. Cancer is also the leading cause of mortality in dogs. Animal models, primarily genetically engineered mice, have been used historically in research aimed at discovering causes and treatments for human cancer types, but the canine model has been underutilized in this research area. Though the field of canine cancer epidemiology is relatively new, it has great potential to produce answers to research questions pertaining to cancer prevention, development, and ...
