2nd International Conference on Translational & Personalized Medicine

Abstract
Translational medicine transitions breakthroughs in basic science research to practical clinical medicine in an effort to improve the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases such as cancer. Given both the high morbidity and mortality associated with cancer, it is imperative that we identify novel therapeutics that could lead to more effective treatment. This means we must overcome the challenges that separate basic science from its practical applications. New research emerging at the interface of veterinary and human cancer research offers tools that can help overcome the challenge of efficient translational pharmacotherapy. The predictive value of novel drug success is inherently based on the relevancy of animal models. While traditional murine models provide crucial opportunities to investigate specific molecular and genetic pathways, they fail to adequately characterize the biologic variations inherent in spontaneously-arising human cancer. Our studies in spontaneous feline tumor models, particularly of head and neck cancer, provide rationale for preclinical pharmacotherapy studies in cancer- bearing cats and demonstrate the translational relevance of capitalizing on companion animal tumor models for human cancer research.
