One Health

One Health is an initiative to improve animal and human health globally through collaboration between veterinarians, physicians, osteopaths, dentists, nurses, and other scientific-health professionals. It recognizes that the health of people is closely connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. The study of emerging infectious diseases, the effects of pollution and antibiotic resistance, the value of the human-animal bond, and more are critical to ensuring optimal health and well-being for all species. To promote One Health, the AKC Canine Health Foundation recognizes and supports research that improves the health of dogs while simultaneously advancing knowledge for human medicine.

Granulomatous Colitis in Boxers and French Bulldogs February 2, 2021

CHF-funded researchers at Cornell University have been studying this disease to identify the underlying genetic mutations and explore the molecular processes involved.

Exploring Risk Factors for Canine Lymphoma September 8, 2020

CHF-funded investigators at the University of Wisconsin, Madison set out to learn more about the combinations of genetic mutations and toxin exposures that contribute to canine lymphoma.

A One Health Approach to Beating Cancer August 27, 2020

Recent discoveries by AKC Canine Health Foundation funded researchers demonstrate the power of a One Health approach in fighting cancer, a devastating disease found in humans and dogs.

The Role of Aging and the Immune System in Canine Degenerative Myelopathy February 18, 2020

CHF-funded researchers concluded that priming of central nervous system immune cells, advancing age, and a mutation in the gene that codes for superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) are all risk factors for development of clinical signs of canine DM.

A One Health Approach to Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinoses July 15, 2019

CHF-funded researchers are studying a class of rare, fatal disorders of the nervous system called neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL). The knowledge gained may help dogs and people affected by this devastating disease.
