Intestinal dysbiosis has been associated with tumor progression of colorectal, lung, and breast cancer in human patients. To date, no studies have been published investigating the intestinal microbiome in dogs or humans with osteosarcoma (OSA). The objective of this study is to determine whether or not canine patients diagnosed with OSA have intestinal dysbiosis and if the presence of intestinal dysbiosis is associated with metastasis in these patients.Study Details
The goal of this study is to evaluate changes in procalcitonin levels over time in canine patients surgically treated for sepsis secondary to an abdominal cause (i.e. ruptured intestine). Additional blood sample collection will also be performed to investigate for possible novel markers for sepsis using next generation sequencing for the future development of diagnostic test.Study Details
