Example text

Patients with good prognosis can be spared unnecessary treatment, and, conversely, those patients whose cytogenetic abnormalities indicate poor prognosis can receive more aggressive treatments to improve the probability of positive outcomes. The World Health Organization recognizes that genetic abnormalities are one of the most reliable criteria for the classification of tumors and has stressed the importance of further research into this area. Recent progress in molecular cytogenetics of domestic animals, and especially the dog, has allowed us to develop a “toolbox” that will accelerate progress in our understanding of cancer genetics.

We can use molecular tools to predict risk, prognosis, and response to therapy in some cancers of companion animals, and we believe the availability and usefulness of such tools in clinical practice will expand rapidly. Therefore, as we improve our understanding of basic mechanisms that account for malignant transformation and tumor progression, we will be able to design better strategies for cancer prevention and therapy. Selected References* The following reviews and original manuscript are considered to suitably illustrate our current understanding of cancer genetics.

It was recently proposed that stem cells evolved partly as a cancer protective mechanism because even the requirement for a single cell to accumulate several mutations before it becomes cancerous would not be sufficient to prevent long-lived organisms from dying of cancer at a relatively young (pre-reproductive) age. That is, if each of the trillions of cells formed in a complex mammal (such as a dog or a cat) over its lifetime retained the capacity to divide, the probability of a single cell acquiring a complement of mutations leading to cancer would be overwhelming.
