Hemangiosarcoma was recently identified as the most important cancer diagnosis noted in the American golden retriever population. Hemangiosarcoma also is the most common cancer diagnosed in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study cohort. Interestingly, the disease is less common in European golden retrievers, suggesting a hereditary component to the disease. Researchers will study the genomes of golden retrievers to identify mutations associated with development of hemangiosarcoma in the breed. Findings could lead to better treatments and diagnostic testing for this serious cancer.
