AKC Canine Health Foundation Media Alert
American Kennel Club and AKC Canine Health Foundation Release Podcast on
Canine Comparative Oncology and Genomics Consortium [Thursday, August 14,
The American Kennel Club and the AKC Canine Health Foundation are pleased to
debut the next podcast in the Genome Barks series.
This week's podcast is a follow up to our recent interview with Dr. Matthew
Breen. Dr. Breen, while a world renowned cancer researcher, is also the
Treasurer of the Canine Comparative Oncology & Genomics Consortium (CCOGC).
Jointly sponsored by the AKC Canine Health Foundation and Morris Animal
Foundation, the CCOGC is a collaboration of veterinary and medical
oncologists, pathologists, surgeons, geneticists, and molecular and cellular
biologists. This group determined that a well-described repository of
tissues (tumor and normal) from tumor bearing dogs was an essential resource
needed for advancing our understanding of canine cancer. The biospecimen
repository, sponsored by Pfizer, houses tumor tissue, normal tissues, serum,
plasma, peripheral blood mononuclear cell preparations, genomic DNA, RNA and
urine samples. The goal is to obtain 3,000 samples of lymphoma,
osteosarcoma, melanoma, hemangiosarcoma, soft tissue sarcoma/histiocytic
sarcoma, mast cell tumors and lung cancer.
New podcasts are released every two weeks and can be accessed from either
the American Kennel Club website at www.akc.org or the AKC Canine Health
Foundation website at www.akcchf.org - click on "Podcasts." They are also
available on Apple's iTunes® or directly at www.akc-akcchf.libsyn.com.

Acting Director of Development
AKC Canine Health Foundation
The AKC Canine Health Foundation, founded in 1995 by the American Kennel
Club, is the largest nonprofit worldwide to fund health research exclusively
for canines. Our goal is to help dogs live longer, healthier lives. The AKC
Canine Health Foundation is the leader in non-invasive genetic health
research, stem cell research, and biotherapeutics benefiting both canines
and humans. Through the generous financial support of the American Kennel
Club and the Nestlé Purina PetCare Co., we're proud to announce we have
allocated more than $20 million in canine health research through more than
75 schools and research institutions worldwide.
The American Kennel Club, founded in 1884, is a not-for-profit organization
which maintains the largest registry of purebred dogs in the world and
oversees the sport of purebred dogs in the United States. The AKC is
dedicated to upholding the integrity of its registry, promoting the sport of
purebred dogs and breeding for type and function. Along with its nearly
5,000 licensed and member clubs and its affiliated organizations, the AKC
advocates for the purebred dog as a family companion, advances canine health
and well-being, works to protect the rights of all dog owners and promotes
responsible dog ownership. More than 20,000 competitions for AKC-registered
purebred dogs are held under AKC rules and regulations each year including
conformation, agility, obedience, rally, tracking, herding, lure coursing,
coonhound events, hunt tests, field and earthdog tests. Affiliate AKC
organizations include the AKC Humane Fund, AKC Canine Health Foundation, AKC
Companion Animal Recovery and the AKC Museum of the Dog.
