Liquid Biopsy In Veterinary Medicine

Transforming Canine Cancer Detection with ZM-017

Advances in veterinary care have increased the life expectancy of our companion animals. Canines, in particular, have benefitted from the improvements in veterinary science. However, as dogs live longer, the potential for cancer increases. Current cancer diagnostic approaches have considerable limitations. These include the need for invasive procedures, the need for multiple tests to confirm diagnosis, and the cost-prohibitive nature of these tests. Zomedica has partnered with Celsee, Inc. to develop ZM-017, a liquid biopsy circulating tumor cell (CTC) detection assay for veterinary application as a canine cancer diagnostic test.

ZM-017 is less invasive, faster, and more affordable than the current standard of care. And, ZM-017 has the potential to not only transform the way veterinary medicine approaches canine cancer, but also positively influence clinical outcomes for canine companions and their owners.

Read how this leading-edge technology aims to help vets and their teams diagnose cancer with confidence, faster.
