The Take C.H.A.R.G.E. scientific advisory board of veterinary oncologists and experts support adoption of new comparative oncology diagnostic codes to strengthen the initiative’s impact
Jaguar Health today announced the launch of Canine Cancer: Take C.H.A.R.G.E. (Canine Health And ReGistry Exchange), a first-of-its-kind national canine cancer registry and the Canine Cancer Care Index to provide the veterinary community and dog owners with important incidence and prevalence data to help guide canine cancer diagnosis and treatment decisions. Launched on the first National Canine Cancer Awareness Day and cosponsored by Jaguar Animal Health; TogoRun, a global health communications agency; and Ivee, an animal health data-focused software company, the program will initially access information about canine cancer from 2 key sources: a nationally representative multi-year Gallup survey of dog owners in the United States, and a retrospective review of more than 35,000 anonymous canine patient records uploaded into a secure customized database with more than 830 confirmed cancer diagnoses.
