Piroxicam and carboplatin in canine oral non-tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma
Squamous cell carcinomas of the oral mucosa are known to be very aggressive and often very frustrating in their therapy. Does this combination of carboplatin and piroxicam coming from human medicine offer better therapeutic results than the current therapies? At least the preliminary results seems to be promising!

Results of the treatment with a combination of carboplatin and piroxicam in seven dogs with advanced non-tonsillar oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) were retrospectively analysed.

This multi-agent protocol was well tolerated by all dogs and resulted in a complete regression of the tumour without additional surgery in four of seven patients.
Additional surgery was necessary to remove a metastatic lymph node in one dog and residual tumour in a second dog, which achieved a partial response following medical therapy.

Median follow-up for all the dogs was 534 days, while the time-to-recurrence, time-to-progression and overall survival for this group of patients have not yet been reached.

Our study, although limited in number of animals, suggests that this multiagent approach is a useful treatment option for oral non-tonsillar SCC in dogs and warrants wider application.

Concentrations of a marker of type I collagen metabolism in ragdolls with HCMmembers
HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) is a common and life-threatening disease in many cat breeds, and the diagnosis especially in an early stage is extremely difficult. Human carriers of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy associated sarcomeric mutations have abnormal collagen metabolism before overt left ventricular hypertrophy is detectable. This fascinating new study investigated whether differences in collagen biomarkers were present in blood samples of ragdoll cats positive for the MYBPC3:R820W mutation compared with negative controls.
