Description

Canine Osteosarcoma: A New Way of Looking at Old Data?: Canine osteosarcoma is a well-known entity for veterinary oncologist, both intriguing and frustrating at the same time. Many studies have been performed during the last 50 years and although our knowledge of the disease has significantly improved, the improvement of success of therapy has been limited after the initial chemotherapy breakthrough near the middle of the 20th century. The question that we should ask ourselves is: are we looking at the data correctly and are we using the right therapy for the right oncology candidates. In this quest, veterinary oncologists are not alone, as our colleagues that treat human patients deal with the same issues, albeit their success rate is significantly better.
