Factors Influencing Development of New Veterinary Medicine Oncology Products
Presenation made by Karen Greenwood, BSc, Director, Companion Animal Internal Medicine Unit at Pfizer Animal Health at the 2011 National Parent Club Canine Health Conference hosted by the AKC Canine Health Foundation.
Presenation Abstract: The presentation will cover the process involved in identifying and registering new oncology treatments for canines and the factors that influence successful registration and launch. This will include observations on the challenge and complexity of development for agents specifically developed for pets versus off-label use of human health products, the MUMS (minor use, minor species) process as it relates to oncology, and the benefits of translational oncology for canine cancer patients.
