Samples Needed from German Shepherds affected by Hemangiosarcoma

01/01/2008
Breed(s): German Shepherd Dog
Study Type: DNA Sample
Study Location: Animal Health Trust

Researchers in the Oncology Research Group at the Animal Health Trust (in collaboration with researchers at other institutes, as part of the LUPA project, http://www.eurolupa.org/) are collecting DNA samples from German Shepherd Dogs. They would like to collect samples (cheek swab, or whole blood sample in EDTA) from dogs that are either currently affected with a hemangiosarcoma, or have previously had a hemangiosarcoma. Anyone who is interested in taking part in these research studies and would be willing to submit a cheek swab, or have their veterinary surgeon retain for research a sample of blood (from their dog) that is surplus that collected for a clinical reason, is invited to contact them for shipping information.
