COHA’s clinical trials in pets benefit both animals and humans alike

Funded by a CTSA award, the Clinical and Translational Science Award One Health Alliance (COHA) is comprised of veterinary schools partnered with medical institutions. COHA’s mission is to advance our understanding of diseases shared by humans and animals.

One issue targeted by COHA is chronic pain. Pets and humans frequently suffer from similar pain-causing conditions such as bone cancer, diabetes, interstitial cystitis, and osteoarthritis. Experts, including those from Duke and N.C. State, demonstrate in this video how transdisciplinary collaboration could lead to improved pain control in humans through optimized translational approaches.
