Hair turning reddish

Missy's hair is turning reddish brown in the areas where her hair comes into contact with bodily fluids -- around her mouth and urethra. It's the same color all her hair turned when she was going through chemotherapy. Our vet believes the pH of her bodily fluids is changing due to the cancer.

New drug may improve HSA survival rates

"A breakthrough trial at the University of Minnesota testing a new UMN-developed drug resulted in improved survival rates for dogs diagnosed with a cancer called hemangiosarcoma (HSA)...This is likely the most significant advance in the treatment of canine HSA in the last three decades," said study co-author Jaime Modiano, V.M.D., Ph.D. professor in the University …

Potential molecular therapeutic target for canine HSA

Research link: The expression of RTKs, c-kit, VEGFR-2 and PDGFR-2, as well as PI3K/Akt/m-TOR and MEK was higher in canine splenic HSAs compared to normal spleens. These proteins may therefore be potential therapeutic targets in canine splenic HSA. Immunohistochemical detection of a potential molecular therapeutic target for canine hemangiosarcoma
