Doctors and veterinarians work together to cure cancer

Cancer Newsline - 04/29/2013

Dogs share similar characteristics and lifestyles to human beings since both have been cohabitating for thousands of years. Because of this, canines have also developed cancers much like those of humans. Laurence Cooper, M.D., Ph.D., professor in Pediatrics at MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Texas A&M’s veterinary school, have teamed up to study oncology across species with hopes of finding positive results that can be applied to humans and animals alike. Current research focuses on dogs, but plans are to expand it to include other animals. In this podcast, Cooper explains this comparative oncology and discusses his research with canine/human T cells for lymphoma patients.

Guest: Laurence Cooper, M.D., Ph.D.
