The Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium (COTC) is a network of over 20 academic veterinary oncology centers organized by the Comparative Oncology Program in the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health.
Oncologists in the COTC work together to design and conduct clinical trials in dogs with cancer in order to evaluate new cancer treatments. Understanding the mechanisms by which the new therapies are effective is a crucial component of each study. This is crucial in order to further improve the therapy in future work.
Participate in one of our many ongoing clinical trials to help us better understand how to diagnose and treat cancer in both canines and humans.
