About the course

Oncology is a fast-moving field. It is also a field that doesn’t want for academic controversy. This does nothing to help you understand how best to proceed with your cases in practice. This course will help you get to grips with new oncological diagnostic tests and methods and new oncological therapeutics. There will be an emphasis on the cancers that you’ll see in first-opinion practice. Every effort will be made to resolve your frustrations and confusions relating to the applications and uses of new oncological methods and technologies. Specific references will be made to the following:

  • New diagnostic tests in canine lymphoma: PARR, flow cytometry, WHO classification
  • Proliferation markers in canine mast cell tumours
  • Role of c-kit in mast cell tumour pathophysiology
  • Use of tyrosine kinase inhibitors in veterinary cancer
  • Management of mast cell tumours and soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities
  • Cancer immunotherapy – what can you do in practice?
