Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium
The Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium (COTC) is an active network of twenty academic comparative oncology centers, centrally managed by the NIH-NCI-Center for Cancer Research's Comparative Oncology Program, that functions to design and execute clinical trials in dogs with cancer to assess novel therapies. The goal of this effort is to answer biological questions geared to inform the development path of these agents for future use in human cancer patients. Trials conducted by the COTC are pharmacokinetically and pharmacodynamically rich with the product of this work directly integrated into the design of current human Phase I and II clinical trials. Our trials are carried at COTC member institutions, which currently include 22 sites.
All veterinary universities that met the established criteria have been invited to join the Comparative Oncology Trial Consortium.
