 What is FidoCure? | Ben Lewis Deep Dive | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4878

For many years, DNA sequencing has been a first line option for diagnosing and treating many human cancers, in a treatment that is often referred to as, targeted therapy. Targeted therapy works by directly inhibiting the growth and replication of the cancer cells in certain types of tumors, and because of its targeted action it has shown high rates of tumor responsiveness in people. So, what happens when you take this science and apply it to dogs? Well, essentially the same thing, which is exciting and is exactly what we are talking about this week with Ben Lewis, the co-founder of FidoCure. Ben Lewis, the co-founder of FidoCure gives our listeners a deep lesson about genomic sequencing, as it relates to cancer causing DNA mutations. He shares the science behind FidoCure, the types of dog tumors that they’ve had the most success with, as well as how all this biotechnology and science could really help improve the standard of care and the prognosis of many types of cancers in humans and their dogs.

 Rare Plasmacytomas in Dogs │ Dr. Nancy Reese Q&A | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 871

In this week’s episode of Dog Cancer Answers, Dr. Nancy Reese discusses plasmacytoma tumors. She explains that most vets who find plasmacytoma tumors in their patients, will locate them as solitary, non-aggressive, pink growths on the surface of the skin that can be resolved using surgical removal. These kinds of tumors are called cutaneous plasmacytomas and make up approximately 86% of all plasmacytoma cases. The remaining 14% of these types of growths are classified as non-cutaneous extramedullary plasmacytomas and are found in the cells of the oral cavity (9% of the time), the GI tract (4% of the time), and in the bone marrow (less than 1% - in multiple myeloma). They are also much more aggressive, harder to diagnose, and difficult to treat, which is exactly what Dr. Nancy covers in this week’s episode.
