Detect 30 different types of canine cancer with a simple blood draw: Introducing liquid biopsy testing
At its most fundamental level, cancer is caused by abnormalities in DNA. Advanced genomic sequencing technologies now allow for the identification of these abnormalities using a simple blood draw, opening the door to non-invasive cancer detection in dogs. This session will provide a basic overview of cancer biology and introduce the fundamentals of “liquid biopsy” for canine cancer detection using next-generation sequencing of cell-free DNA. A review of the peer-reviewed clinical validation study of this testing in over 1,000 dogs will be presented, along with recent clinical laboratory experience and case examples from real-world veterinary practices.
This program has been approved for 1 hour of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval.
