The next-generation FidoCure® DNA Sequencing Test is offered to veterinary customers serviced by IDEXX reference laboratories
PALO ALTO, California, January 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — One Health Company, an organic company bridging the gap between precision medicine for canine and human cancer, today announced a collaboration with IDEXX Laboratories, Inc., a global leader in pet health. IDEXX Reference Laboratories will offer the FidoCure Next Generation DNA Sequencing Test to its veterinary customers in The United States and Canada Later this month.
The collaboration, which expands IDEXX’s cancer care management portfolio, enables veterinarians to provide personalized care to their cancer patients by expanding access to FidoCure’s precision medicine platform.
Cancer treatment in dogs is a huge unmet need. About six million new canine cancer diagnoses are made each year, and approximately one in three dogs will develop cancer in their lifetime. Humans and dogs are both susceptible to genetic mutations that can cause cancer to grow and spread, and identifying these mutations through genetic sequencing allows for personalized treatment and care. Like the Human Cancer Centers of Excellence, One Health Company addresses unmet cancer needs for dogs by providing streamlined access to genetic sequencing and targeted therapy.
Over 2,000 dogs diagnosed with cancer have used the FidoCure Next Generation DNA Sequencing Test. Based on the results, eligible dogs were offered individualized treatment options using targeted therapies approved by the FDA for treating humans. This collaboration will allow FidoCure, which already has the world’s largest proprietary canine cancer dataset, to significantly expand that dataset and uncover new discoveries for the benefit of dogs and humans with cancer.
“We are excited to be collaborating with a global leader in veterinary diagnostics to help bring our novel FidoCure Next Generation DNA sequencing test to even more veterinary clinics across the United States Canada,” said Christina Lopes, Co-Founder and CEO of One Health Company. “IDEXX’s customer and innovation-centric approach to veterinary diagnostics is an ideal complement to FidoCure’s precision medicine platform.”
