Multiple-cancer early detection in human medicine is now available in Liquid biopsy kits that interrogate cancer-derived genomic alterations in cell-free DNA in blood, and are now available for veterinary use. The CANcer Detection in Dogs study is a multinational, multi-center scientific research designed to verify the results of a novel multi-cancer early detection liquid biopsy" test in dogs that is used for noninvasive detection and characterization of cancer in dogs based on next-generation sequencing of blood-derived DNA; the study findings are published here. In patients from 30 different cancer types and diseases, the test revealed cancer signals in patients and gave a Cancer Signal Origination prediction for a subset of patients with hematological malignancies. Moreover, the test correctly detected cancer signal in four apparently cancer-free participants before the onset of clinical signs, proving the use of liquid biopsy as an early detection method.
