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.

Radioactive iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats after rh-TSHmembers
Radioactive iodine therapy is considered the treatment of choice for hyperthyroidism in cats, but the availability of this modality is limited by costs and hospitalization requirements. Administration of recombinant human thyroid stimulating hormone (rh‐TSH) to humans with thyroid neoplasia or nodular goiter can increase thyroidal iodine uptake, thereby allowing the use of lower radioactive iodine doses for treatment. Veterinary studies of this subject are limited, and results are conflicting. Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the effects of rh‐TSH administration on thyroidal iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats.
