A recent study out of the Masonic Cancer Centre and University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine looks at whether humans and dogs, both susceptible to cancer, are outliving the capacity of their natural cancer protective mechanisms, creating an elevated risk of cancer and an excess of deaths by cancer. The collaborative research effort, led by Masonic Cancer members Jaime Modiano, VMD, PhD, Perlman Professor of Oncology and Comparative Medicine, Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, and Aaron Sarver, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Institute of Health Informatics, was recently published in “Aging and Cancer.”
