Investigating a New Treatment for Oral Cancers in Cats

Oral squamous cell carcinoma is a common and usually fatal feline cancer. A better understanding of how these tumors progress and  the identification of new therapy targets for intervention are required to improve outcomes. Researchers will determine whether small molecular inhibitors block some of the mechanisms that drive oral tumor growth and drug resistance. What they learn may provide a new approach that will improve the long-term prognosis and quality of life for cats with oral cancer.
