Project description

In general, we want to optimize the treatment of canine thyroid tumors.
We explore recent identified molecular targets in thyroid tumors in human and veterinary medicine by studying organoids of canine thyroid tumors, followed by a clinical study.
We search the best protocol of recombinant human thyroid stimulating hormone that increases the uptake of radioactive iodine in canine thyroid tumors.
