The National Cancer Institute Comparative Brain Tumor Consortium, Patient Outcomes Working Group, proposed a consensus document in support of standardized magnetic resonance imaging protocols for canine brain tumor clinical trials. This consensus document was published in 2018.
Earlier this year, the Comparative Brain Tumor Consortium (CBTC) sent out a survey to capture the landscape of canine brain tumors in North America. This project was conceived in order to better define the current standards amongst veterinarians in diagnosis, treatment and management of canine brain tumor patients to support future opportunities for translational and clinical studies. The survey was sent to all American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) Board-certified neurologists. Results from the survey will be published later this year.
