Research Uses for Other Animals

Numerous other animals have been utilized in cancer research studies in order to learn more about the underlying biology, physiology, or responses to therapy.  In some cases studies are performed with an eye towards the parallel cancer situation in humans, and in some cases it is with an eye towards the veterinary interventions for companion animals or those of agricultural interest.  Longer-term studies can be performed with some of the larger animals that are not possible in the smaller animal systems.

To learn more about the uses of these animals in these pursuits, explore the navigation links at the left. These examples do not endorse any specific approaches, compounds, or conclusions from the research.  They are provided as samples of the types of research that have been undertaken using a given model system.
