This is super exciting stuff here. A new k9 cancer screening test developed by Texas A&M (gig 'em! ) can catch hemangiosarcoma and lymphomas!
Texas A&M Offering New Canine Cancer Screening Test
The easy-to-use, cost-effective tool, which will be offered through the Texas A&M Gastrointestinal Lab, represents a significant development in veterinary medicine.
The Nu.Q Vet Cancer Screening Test measures and identifies circulating nucleosomes, which are early markers of cancer, from a simple blood sample. At 100% specificity, the test has been shown to detect 74% of lymphomas and 89% of hemangiosarcomas, two of the most common cancers in dogs that comprise approximately one-third of canine cancers.
The benefit for the veterinarian, the pet owner and the dog is a streamlined diagnostic process. It delivers a simpler, faster and less-invasive diagnosis with the goal of providing quality of life to the pet and valuable information to inform the clinical decision-making process.
