Studying Ways to Suppress Oral Cancer in Cats

Oral squamous cell carcinoma, the most common oral cancer in cats, carries a poor prognosis because it aggressively destroys the jaw bone. Researchers will determine whether suppressing a tumor-produced molecule will limit the breakdown of bone tissue. If this treatment is successful, suppressing this molecule could help prevent bone loss and improve the prognosis.
