Olfactory detection of prostate cancer by dogs
Contributor(s):: Girardet, C., Cornu, J. N., Cussenot, O.
Abstract from the 2011 International Working Dog Conference, Johannesburg, South Africa, October 2011: Volatiles organic compounds (VOCs) in urine have been proposed as cancer biomarkers. Our aim is to evaluate the efficacy of prostate cancer detection by trained dogs sniffing human urines samples.
Use of spontaneous behaviour measures to assess pain in laboratory rats and mice: how are we progressing?
Contributor(s):: Whittaker, A. L., Howarth, G. S.
The understanding and recognition of pain in laboratory rats and mice has advanced considerably in recent times. However, there is evidence that despite these advances, analgesics are still relatively underutilised in these species. One possible contributing influence to this is the difficulty in...
