Treatment and Outcome of Avian Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Stanford University in partnership with the UC Davis Parrot Wellness and Welfare Program has created a research project that will help gather essential information regarding a significant cancer in birds, squamous cell carcinoma. This cancer is quite common in companion birds and often responds poorly to treatment. An online survey is helping us gather information from a large number of avian veterinarians regarding patient treatments and outcomes. This information may be used in the future to help veterinarians guide therapy as well as to guide researchers to develop clinical trials for new treatments. By gaining insight into the behavior of this tumor type in birds, we may also be able to learn more about ways to manage similar tumors in human patients.

Study Design:

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All avian species are included.
  • All cases submitted must have histologic confirmation of squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Cases with all types of treatment, including conservative management, are included.
