$1million pledged to fight cancer

THE WORLD'S largest pharmaceutical organisation has pledged $1.1m (approximately £800,000) towards battling cancer in dogs.

Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) and Pfizer Animal Health have jointly announced a $1.1 million donation from Pfizer to establish a national canine tumour biospecimen bank. This tumour tissue bank is expected to be an especially valuable asset in the quest to treat and cure cancer in dogs and may provide insights into human cancer as well.

This new resource to fight cancer has been named the Pfizer – CCOGC Biospecimen Repository. The bank will be located in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
