Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Thanks Erica. It's a good rundown of the current state of osteosarcoma research. There are promising treatments on the horizon. Anything with "nano" in it has to be powerful right?!

Nowadays, combining surgery with single agent chemotherapy and radiotherapy seems to be the most effective method of OSA treatment. However, reducing the high metastasis ability and enhancing antitumor activity of cytostatic drugs having minimal negative side effects is still a challenge for veterinary practitioners. New approaches of OSA treatment including the use of nanoparticles are currently under investigation.
