Controlling the Spread of Hemangiosarcoma Cells
Hemangiosarcoma is a common and fatal cancer that is particularly deadly to Golden Retrievers and Portuguese Water Dogs. This study examines how molecular signaling helps cancer stem cells undergo self-renewal. Investigators are evaluating the potential to control the activity of hemangiosarcoma stem cells by altering these molecular signals to slow tumor growth and to enhance sensitivity to conventional and targeted therapies.
