  1. 1. Oncology Research at the VMTH  Basic Science Research  Graduate students and faculty are researching the following areas  Cancer Epidemiology as it relates to lymphoma, skin tumors, pediatric cancer, mesothelioma, and gastrointestinal cancer  VMDB refined for MUMS classification  Diagnostic Biomarkers for bladder cancer and lymphoma  Nuclear medicine and imaging of solid tumors including lymphoma  Developmental therapeutics – in vitro and in vivo preclinical assessment of novel therapies  Photoacoustic identification of tumor cells in lymph nodes  NEWS mutation assessment in Standard Poodles
  2. 2. Oncology Research at the VMTH  Current Clinical trials (client-owned pets):  Satraplatin – new oral platinum chemotherapy agent  Elsamitrucin – novel injectable chemotherapy agent with lesser toxicity than similar drugs  Intralesional yttrium and holmium - new radiopharmaceutical technique to treat bone cancer  SPI-1620- novel drug to increase blood flow (and drug delivery) to tumors  mTOR inhibitor to treat bone cancer that has metastasized to lung  Inhalant chemotherapy for primary and metastatic lung cancer  rhIL-2/IL-12 targeted therapy of melanoma  Proteomic cancer screening – studies to identify biomarkers for earlier cancer detection  Comparative endoscopy- collaboration with Med School to refine minimally-invasive tumor excision methods
  3. 3. Translational and Comparative Oncology  National Consortium Membership and Participation  Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium – translational research/clinical trial consortium under the NCI umbrella  Canine Comparative Oncology and Genomics Consortium – MU is one of seven institutions selected to participate in this biospecimen repository development
