Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological condition characterized by unpredictable seizures, and it affects both humans and animals. Management of epilepsy is often challenging, especially with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, which both manifest as early-onset, treatment-resistant epilepsy in young children.

Equine Ocular Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Ocular squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a form of neoplasia (e.g. cancer) affecting the eye of both animals and humans. Ocular SCC is relatively rare in humans, affecting 1 in 1,000,000 people in regions outside of Africa.

Feline Diabetes

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is not a single disease, but a syndrome characterized by hyperglycemia that result from defects in insulin secretion or insulin sensitivity (in target tissues), or both. Several pathogenic processes may lead to development of DM, from autoimmune destruction of beta cells of the pancreas with consequent absolute insulin deficiency to abnormalities that result in resistance to insulin action such as hypersomatotropism (HST).

Urothelial Carcinoma

Urothelial carcinoma (“UC”, also called transitional cell carcinoma) is the most common type of urinary bladder cancer in dogs and humans.
