'2 dogs 2,000 miles' trek promotes dog DNA for cancer research
Date:6/7/2010

're about to cross into Massachusetts, our 16th and final state. We're about 50 miles from our goal, and we'll be in Boston in a couple of weeks," said Robinson, reached by cell phone this week just outside of Providence, R.I. "It's been one heck of a journey. It's a tremendous honor to be a part of this historic (CHCC) study."

Robinson's progress can be tracked at: www.2dogs2000miles.org/Home_Page.html.

Nearly half of all dogs 10 years and older die from cancer. Dogs in the study will be treated as patients. The research is endorsed by the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation and by the Morris Animal Foundation. Samples will be gathered with the consent of owners and veterinarians.

How your dog can join the study

The goal of the CHCC is to collect 2,000 DNA samples by the time Robinson and his dogs arrive June 19 at the "Puppy Up!" Festival at Boston Common. To find out more about the CHCC, go to: www.tgen.org/research/index.cfm?pageid=1382. To participate in the study, especially those dogs already clinically diagnosed with cancer, go to: www.tgen.org/research/canine-hcc-frm.cfm.

In addition to cancer, TGen and VARI eventually will study neurological and behavioral disorders as well as hearing loss and other debilitative conditions in dogs that could relate to people.

Samples from thousands of dogs from all breeds, and mixed breeds, eventually will be needed, said Dr. Neff. "Every sample matters. Every sample informs about the process of cancer. Every sample informs about how we might diagnose and treat cancer. The more the better."

The $5.3 million cancer research project is supported by a recently approved 2-year, $4.3 million federal stimulus grant to TGen and its partners, and by $1 million in pri
