Canine Hemangiosarcoma: How Much Do We Really Know and When Will We Find a Cure?

The Modiano Lab at the University of Minnesota is implementing a comprehensive approach to beat canine hemangiosarcoma. This includes development of new therapies to help dogs that develop the disease today, as well as new methods for prevention and control that will reduce the number of dogs that will develop hemangiosarcoma in the future. A better understanding of the disease has allowed us to make significant gains on both fronts of the battle against this aggressive tumor. Their progress has not gone unnoticed, allowing us to establish new collaborations that will similarly help human patients with angiosarcoma.

This presentation was recorded at the 2013 National Parent Club Canine Health Conference hosted by the AKC Canine Health Foundation and generously sponsored by Nestlé Purina PetCare.

Welcome to another podcast brought to you by the AKC Canine Health Foundation. In this podcast we are speaking with Dr. Matt Kaeberlein, Associate Professor of Pathology at the University of Washington. Dr. Kaeberlein discusses his groundbreaking work in aging and his interest in using pet dogs to evaluate a novel anti-aging compound. Dr. Kaeberlein completed his BS at Western Washington University in Seattle, followed by his PhD at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge Massachusetts. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington that led to a faculty position within the Department of Pathology.

Learn more about Dr. Kaeberline’s study.
