The AVMA launched the AVMA Animal Health Studies Database in June as a resource for researchers seeking animals to participate in clinical studies and for veterinarians and animal owners exploring options for treatment. It will encompass all fields of veterinary medicine, all species of animals, and will extend beyond the United States to Canada and the United Kingdom. Ahead of the launch, the Veterinary Cancer Society transferred all the studies from its Veterinary Cancer Trials website—about 100—into the AVMA database; and the AVMA has been soliciting studies from veterinary colleges. So far, 153 studies are represented.
