WHO WE ARE

InSitu Foundation is a 501(c)3 dedicated to training dogs to detect cancer in humans.

WHY

Published studies have shown that dogs can detect early stage cancer with 88% specificity, and 99% sensitivity. Dogs could help provide an extremely accurate, low-cost, non-invasive, early detection screening for cancer. Early detection is our greatest cure, as of now.

GOALS

  • Currently seeking FDA approval for canine medical scent detection kit for cancer
  • Providing a screening method for the early detection of cancer
  • Publish research on canine medical scent detection
  • Open canine scent detection centers nationally, and eventually globally

WHAT WE DO

InSitu Foundation has participated in 2 federally funded studies, where we looked at the diagnostic accuracy of canine scent detection in early and late stage lung, breast, and ovarian cancer.

Currently, we are designing our next study, which looks at the diagnostic accuracy of canine scent detection on early stage stomach and pancreatic cancer. These cancers have no screening methods, and are almost always found too late.

We have successfully trained dogs to identify urine containing e.coli, the bacteria that causes a certain type of urinary tract infection, and to distinguish these samples from healthy urine samples. This will change the lives of disabled people, who often become hospitalized and even die from urinary tract infections.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to utilize canine scent detection to provide a diagnostic screening method for the early detection of cancer in humans.
