Evaluating Genetic Suppression of Oral Cancer Cells

Feline oral squamous cell carcinoma is a common cancer that responds poorly to treatment. A key mechanism in cats contributes to the invasive and malignant nature of this disease. This study identifies the gene that controls this mechanism and evaluates whether suppressing the gene in cancer cells could help treat the disease in cats.
