One Health collaborative cancer research: Texas A & M College of Veterinary Medicine and University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

..."Treating dogs with cancer provides us with a great comparative oncology model for humans," said Colleen O'Connor, Ph.D., post-doctoral fellow at MD Anderson and one of the primary investigators on the study. "We learned important details about the interaction between chemotherapy and tumor cells that can be harnessed to improve the body's immune response. This is something we hadn't appreciated thus far from our clinical research in humans."...,-ut-md-anderson-team-up-to-treat-canine-lymphoma
