General ItemPilot study of partial ablation using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) in feline sarcomas
Purpose: To determine if high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), a treatment that can destroy tissue using sound waves, will result in tumor cell death and immunologic activation in cats with sarcomas.
General ItemAIM: Ablative Immune Modification with Nanopulse Stimulation prior to treatment with doxorubicin in dogs with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
Purpose: To evaluate if treatment with NPS alters immune markers and impacts treatment outcome when combined with standard chemotherapy.
General ItemHigh-Frequency Irreversible Electroporation (H-FIRE) for the treatment of metastatic liver disease in dogs
Purpose: To determine if H-FIRE, which uses electrical pulses to destroy cancer cells, is a safe and effective ablative therapy for the treatment of multi-focal or metastatic liver cancer in dogs.
General ItemHigh Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) ablation as single modality treatment for canine subcutaneous tumors
Purpose: To establish the feasibility, safety, and tolerability of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) in the treatment of canine soft tissue sarcomas (STS), and to characterize the tumor response and time to progression after HIFU treatment
General ItemHistotripsy for treatment of canine appendicular osteosarcoma
Purpose: To determine if histotripsy, a novel treatment that can destroy tissue without radiation or heat, can effectively treat canine osteosarcoma.
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.
General ItemOptimizing radiation therapy planning using advanced imaging in dogs with soft tissue sarcomas
Purpose: To investigate differences between computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in tumor imaging of dogs with soft tissue sarcomas and to determine how these differences affect radiation therapy planning
General ItemEvaluation of incidence of incomplete margins after incisional scar revision
Purpose: To evaluate a comprehensive margin evaluation after surgical scar revision for dogs with previously-diagnosed soft tissue sarcomas, mast cell tumors, and other dermal/subcutaneous tumors.
General ItemTHOP chemotherapy protocol as front-line treatment of canine B-cell lymphoma
Purpose: To determine the efficacy and side effect profile of THOP, a new multi-drug chemotherapy protocol, as the first-line treatment in dogs with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
