Lymphoma: Creating a Tissue Bank
Progress has been slow to improve therapies and outcomes for dogs diagnosed with a very common tumor - lymphoma. To accelerate our understanding of this cancer in dogs and identify novel treatments to improve survival, we are collecting a sample of lymph node tissue from dogs diagnosed with multicentric lymphoma that have not yet begun therapy for their cancer. The tissue collected will be used to identify ways to improve disease detection, prognosis, and treatment options for dogs with lymphoma. The project is part of the Cornell Lymphoma Program and involves researchers across the Cornell Ithaca campus and at Weill Cornell in New York City. This study is also being performed at the Cornell University Veterinary Specialists in Stamford, CT.
ELIGIBILITY: Dogs who are enrolled in the study "Evaluating a New Drug Combination to Treat Lymphoma".
COMPENSATION: The study provides $1000 to cover the cost of lymph node removal and to go towards staging.
OWNER RESPONSIBILITIES: Your commitment required is outlined at the other study page.
