Shine On Phases 1, 2 and 3
Early Detection to Target Hemangiosarcoma Cells in Dogs (Shine On)” was conceived to reduce the mortality and the suffering caused by canine hemangiosarcoma. The goal of this project is to develop effective methods for early detection and for prevention of canine hemangiosarcoma. We will use a blood test to look for the cells responsible for establishing and maintaining the disease, and then use an experimental drug treatment that attacks those same cells in order to prevent development of the tumor.
