Ardent, a global leader in advanced treatments for pets, and FidoCure, a company transforming canine cancer treatment with precision medicine, are thrilled to announce a transformative partnership that will expand access to oncology innovation in the animal health market. This partnership leverages the unique strengths of each company to accelerate scientific advancements, increase veterinary access to modern precision medicine, and foster innovation in the global pet oncology market.

LEXINGTON, Ky., July 21, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Ardent, a global leader in advanced treatments for pets, and FidoCure, a company transforming canine cancer treatment with precision medicine, are thrilled to announce a transformative partnership that will expand access to oncology innovation in the animal health market. This collaboration combines efforts to increase access to Ardent's innovative cancer treatment pipeline with FidoCure's genomic testing and precision medicine platform. This partnership leverages the unique strengths of each company to accelerate scientific advancements, increase veterinary access to modern precision medicine, and foster innovation in the global pet oncology market. "Our shared vision is to raise the standard of care for pets stricken with cancer," said Thomas Masterson, President of Ardent. "FidoCure's expertise in genomic testing and robust data coupled with Ardent's cancer product pipeline will create more choices for more pet families. We now know there is no single solution to completely eradicate cancer, it's not a one size fits all approach. Our vision is that through partnerships, we are more likely to accelerate innovation and improve the lives of pets and people."

"We are delighted to partner with Ardent and their large network of veterinarians in North America to facilitate access to precision treatments for canine cancer," said Christina K. Lopes, CEO, FidoCure. "This collaboration means that more pet families will be able to access our state-of-the-art genetic testing platform and make informed choices about the best course of treatment for their canine companions."

As part of this collaboration, Ardent will add the FidoCure genomic testing platform to its Ardent Path program. This program offers veterinarians and pet families a 72-hour cancer pathology diagnosis with the option to treat the pet's cancer with targeted cancer vaccines such as K9-ACV, a customized immunotherapy for solid canine cancers. Once a patient sample is submitted to Ardent's laboratory, the cancer type is diagnosed and a customized vaccine is prepared for the patients. Now veterinarians can also choose to offer targeted therapies based on the genetic mutation of the pet's cancer via FidoCure's platform. This multimodal cancer treatment approach is designed to enhance treatment outcomes just like human oncology care at affordable costs for veterinarians and pet families. Ardent's network of thousands of veterinarians across North America will have preferred access to the FidoCure platform to offer genomic testing and genetically targeted cancer therapies. Both organizations intend to expand advanced cancer care to a larger network of specialty and general practice veterinarian clinics to provide pet families with more treatment options following a cancer diagnosis.
