VolitionRx Limited, a multinational epigenetics company, and Veterinary Pathology Group (VPG), a leading diagnostic laboratory, will introduce the groundbreaking Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test to veterinary practices in the UK and Ireland.

VPG takes the lead as the first diagnostic laboratory in the UK and Ireland to offer this groundbreaking test. It is a significant advancement in the early detection and monitoring of cancer in dogs. This innovative test is set to revolutionize the approach to canine cancer diagnosis.

Accessible and Affordable Cancer Test

This user-friendly and cost-effective screening tool is ideal for dogs at an elevated risk of developing cancer. This includes older dogs, certain breeds with a higher prevalence of cancer, and dogs with a familial history of the disease.

Dr. Tom Butera, CEO of Volition Veterinary Diagnostics Development LLP, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership with VPG and the introduction of the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test in the UK and Ireland. He further described the test as a straightforward, non-invasive blood test that can seamlessly integrate into preventive care plans. Additionally, veterinarians will have the flexibility to incorporate this test alongside routine blood work and imaging, enabling earlier cancer detection. This early diagnosis can significantly enhance a dog’s quality of life and the chances of effective treatment.

Empowering Veterinary Professionals

Fiona Gosling, CEO at VPG, further emphasised the commitment of both Volition and VPG to enhancing the well-being of pets, supporting veterinary professionals in their mission to deliver the highest standard of care. The integration of this revolutionary test into VPG’s diagnostic portfolio equips veterinarians with an accessible, cutting-edge tool for the early detection of cancer, leading to better outcomes and, moreover, improved patient care.
