Genetic and Environmental Risk for Lymphoma in Boxer Dogs

Breed(s): Boxer
Study Type: DNA Sample
Study Location: University of Wisconsin-Madison

Dr. Trepanier and her team are collecting cheek swab DNA and environmental questionnaires from Boxers with lymphoma (of any age or stage of treatment), and from control Boxers 10 years of age without systemic cancer (localized mast cell disease of the skin is allowed). Their goal is to see whether genes that neutralize toxic chemicals in the environment are defective in the Boxer breed, especially in Boxers with lymphoma.
