TGen-led canine melanoma study identifies genetic basis of disease; potential drug targets
(The Translational Genomics Research Institute) TGen and its collaborators from across the nation used multiple genomic analysis techniques to identify several gene mutations that could be the keys to what drives melanoma in dogs. Following the path from human melanoma, the findings of recurring molecular changes in canine melanoma can help veterinary physicians pinpoint potential new treatments for dogs. Likewise, human physicians will view these changes in light of the type of melanoma that occurs in non-sun exposed areas in the mouth, or other mucosal surfaces. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

New research could reduce primate electrocutions and help conservation strategies
New research has mapped and analysed the incidence of primate electrocutions in Diani, Kenya to identify hotspot areas that should be prioritised to reduce the risk of electric shock. The study could also inform conservation strategies in other parts of the world where primate electrocutions are common. Electrocution threatens a wide range of primate species across the world and the hazard could become more widespread as species are increasingly restricted to human-dominated landscapes.

New Brain Cancer Treatment For Dogs Could Someday Help Humans
BLACKSBURG, Va. (CBS Local/CBS News) – Sen. John McCain died Saturday after a year-long battle with glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer. It is rare, with only about 20,000 cases in the U.S. each year. It’s the same type of aggressive cancer that claimed the life of his Senate colleague and friend Ted Kennedy in 2009. Glioblastoma can be very difficult to treat and a cure it is often not possible. Researchers are working on developing new treatment options and one regimen is currently being tested on dogs with a canine version of the cancer. Researchers at the Virginia-Maryl...
