Joining Anthony for this episode of VETchat by The Webinar Vet is Douglas Thamm, Barbara Cox Anthony Professor of Oncology at Colorado State University. In this episode, Anthony and Douglas discuss a whole range of new treatments in oncology that have been appearing over the last few years. Douglas shares his first opinions on the drug Stelfonta for the treatment of mast cell tumours in dogs. He discusses what it is, the potential limitations of the drug and where he can see it being useful. Doug explains the similarities and differences of Stelfonta vs tyrosine kinase inhibitors, they talk about new blood tests that are said to detect tumours early, and what circumstances he thinks they may be used. Anthony also asks Doug about his thoughts on treatments such as using monoclonal antibodies and new radiation treatments.
