Dog Genes May Cure Human Cancer 

This discovery was made by researchers from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the University of Georgia, and the One Health Company. 

They found that the genetic similarities between tumors in dogs and cancers in humans are substantially more than was previously believed.  

The genomic data of 671 pet dogs with 23 different types of tumors were analyzed in the study that was published in the journal Scientific Reports.

The purpose of the study was to uncover genetic abnormalities that are responsible for canine cancer. 

A comparison was made between these samples and human tumor samples in order to detect mutations that overlapped. 

The outcomes were just fantastic! A great number of parallels in major genetic 

mutations that were previously unknown were uncovered by researchers.
