General ItemUltrasound-guided histotripsy ablation of canine brain tumors through an acoustically transparent cranial window
Purpose: To investigate the safety and antitumor activities of a new ultrasonic technology, called histotripsy, that can noninvasively destroy (ablate) tumor tissue using acoustic energy, in dogs with brain tumors.
General ItemSerum Neurofilament Light Chain as a Biomarker in Dogs with Seizures
Purpose: To measure Neurofilament light chain (NfL), a neuronal structural protein, to help assess seizure control and differentiate seizures from similar appearing neurologic episodes.
General ItemThe Role of Infection and Immunity in Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM)
Purpose: To understand more about how EPM affects the immune system of horses, and discover how we might improve the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
General ItemIdentification of a genetic predisposition for Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM) susceptibility and associated gene dysregulation in clinically affected horses
Purpose: To determine if there is an underlying genetic predisposition for horses that develop EPM, including chronically affected horses who either fail to respond to treatment or suffer recurrent disease after ceasing treatment.
General ItemMRI-guided HFIRE Ablation of Canine Intracranial Tumors
Purpose: To further evaluate the safety and feasibility of MRI-guided High-Frequency Irreversible Electroporation (HFIRE) for the treatment of glioma brain tumors.
General ItemMolecular Combinatorial Therapy for Canine Malignant Gliomas
Purpose: To determine the safety and effectiveness of a new chemotherapy drug and drug delivery method in the treatment of brain tumors (gliomas) in dogs.
