Description

: Canine splenic hemangiosarcoma (HSA) is a uniformly aggressive disease with a high metastatic rate and grave prognosis despite aggressive treatment with surgery and chemotherapy. Reported Median Survival Time (MST) for stage II disease treated with splenectomy alone is 2 months (range 1.6-3.4 months). With the addition of chemotherapy reported MST for stage II disease is 3.1-5.9 months. The overall 1-year survival rate for stage II disease is 6-13% with surgery alone and 12-20% with the addition of chemotherapy. Given the frequency with which splenic HSA occurs in canine patients, the almost uniformly fatal nature of the disease and the minimal overall survival benefit seen with the addition of chemotherapy, novel treatment options are needed for this aggressive disease. Many herbal medicines have demonstrated mechanisms of action relevant to tumor progression pathways known to be important in development, progression and metastasis of canine HSA.
