Promising novel drug for canine lymphoma
Lymphomas belong to the most common malignant multicentric neoplasias. A variety of chemotherapeutic protocols is currently recommended. In this study, 9-aminocamptothecin was used as a 72-h infusion with promising results.

A colloidal dispersion formulation of 9-aminocamptothecin (9-AC) was administered intravenously to 10 dogs with previously untreated, spontaneously occurring, multicentric lymphoma. The dogs received a 72-h infusion of 9-AC at a rate of 46.5-51.25 µg m2 h1 (total dose range 3.35-3.69 mg m2). This dose range was associated with myelosuppression, consisting principally of neutropenia with a nadir at 7 days following the start of infusion.

Neutropenia and thrombocytopenia were the most common toxicoses and are most likely to be dose-limiting toxicities; low-grade gastrointestinal signs were rarely seen. Concentrations of 9-AC lactone, as well as clinical toxicities, compare favourably with those found in humans.

Tumour responses were seen in all treated dogs. Response to other chemotherapy, following cessation of 9-AC treatment, was not obviously compromised even in dogs clinically resistant to 9-AC. 9-AC is a novel treatment drug for canine lymphoma, which appears to show great promise.

Oral extended release hydrocodone as analgesia after TPLOmembers
Tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) is a very popular technique to treat ruptured cranial cruciate ligaments in dogs, and it requires a balanced analgesia regimen after surgery. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of oral extended‐release hydrocodone compared with oral firocoxib for analgesia following tibial plateau leveling osteotomy surgery in dogs in a hospital setting.
