At the AACR 2023 annual meeting,  Dr. Lucas Rodrigues, Head of Veterinary Research at FidoCure®, presented the results of two innovative studies which demonstrated the power of real-world data from dogs with cancer to drive drug development strategies and inform human clinical trials.

The first study, titled “High frequency of TP53 mutations in canine skin tumors recapitulates solar induced human lesions representing an important research model of spontaneous diseases,” focused on the similarities between skin tumors in dogs and humans caused by sun exposure. The study found a high frequency of TP53 mutations in canine skin tumors, mirroring those seen in humans with solar-induced skin lesions. This validates the use of dogs as a valuable research model for spontaneous diseases.
