Understanding the Role of Specific Cells in Spreading Lymphoma

One of the limitations in identifying therapeutic targets for canine lymphoma has been the lack of reliable systems to study lymphoma cells in the laboratory. This study uses a culture system, developed by the principal investigator, to maintain lymphoma cells in the laboratory and study a protein that helps lymphoma spread. The findings may highlight novel targets for developing therapies to treat B-cell lymphoma in dogs.
