Form for Breen Lab in North Carolina

Breen Labs will be the coordinator of the groups that will be studying hemangiosarcoma in Dachshunds
The Van Andel Institute and Dr. Jaime Modiano of the Oncology and Comparative Medicine with the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Masonic Cancer Center.

THE VAN ANDEL INSTITUTE is studying only naturally occurring tumors, so we need the assistance of owners with dogs who develop Hemangiosarcoma, Osteosarcoma, Lymphoma, Malignant histiocytosis, Melanoma (oral and digital). We are requesting fresh (NOT in formalin) tumor samples when the dog has surgery, a biopsy or is euthanized. We also need 3 mls of blood in an EDTA (purple top) tube. If a tumor sample is not immediately available, (a dog who has had surgery, for example), a blood sample is still useful. If your dog is scheduled for surgery, please contact VARI ahead of time so we can FedEx a tumor collection kit to your veterinarian. You can contact the CHCC at (616) 234 – 5569.
