Lay Abstract

Canine acute leukemia shares clinical features with human acute leukemia. Survival with the most commonly used chemotherapies is dismal and measured in days and there is a clear need for better treatments. Currently there is no accepted consensus for the diagnosis of the disease in dogs partly because the different disease types are unknown. In order to enroll dogs in drug trials, a consensus on diagnosis and classification must be developed, which is what this work is proposing to do.
