Combining Epigenetic and Immunotherapy to Combat Cancer
The most exciting recent advance for achieving durable management of advanced human cancers is immunotherapy, especially the concept of immune checkpoint blockade. However, with the exception of melanoma, most patients do not respond to immunotherapy alone. A growing body of work has shown that epigenetic drugs, specifically DNA methyltransferase inhibitors, can upregulate immune signaling in epithelial cancer cells through demethylation of endogenous retroviruses and cancer testis antigens. These demethylating agents may induce T-cell attraction and enhance immune checkpoint inhibitor efficacy in mouse models.

Heal: The Vital Role of Dogs in the Search for Cancer Cures
Heal: The Vital Role of Dogs in the Search for Cancer Cures
Arlene Weintraub's book explores a topic in cancer not often discussed: the drug development process and its effects on both people and dogs.
What do dogs have to do with cancer research? “Heal,” which chronicles one woman’s research journey across the United States, explains that dogs get some of the same cancers as people, and, in veterinary clinical trials, have been among the first to try new types of medications that were eventually approved for both dogs and humans.

More Reflections on the SeaWorld Agreement
Today, SeaWorld CEO Joel Manby and I sent a letter to President Obama urging him to use a wide range of diplomatic tools to pressure Japan to end its commercial whaling activities and to stop contravening international law by slaughtering hundreds of innocent whales. Manby has assured me that this is just a first indicator of SeaWorld's new commitment to advocacy on marine animal protection efforts, and that the company will join with anti-whaling advocates to finish off the era of commercial whaling on our planet.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Rabies is an easily preventable disease but Tennessee has seen at least 4 confirmed cases in dogs since January of this year. In the United States one to two people die annually from rabies but it kills more than 55,000 people worldwide each year. In 2012, there were 6,000 reported cases of animal rabies in the United States alone.

Processed Pet Food — Biologically Inappropriate for Your Pet
Not long ago I ran across a headline in a pet food industry journal that gave me a chuckle. It read, "More Americans consider raw pet diets amid safety issues: Sales of raw pet food have increased sharply".1 I'm smiling because it seems the best efforts of the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA), the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), many board-certified veterinary nutritionists, and a variety of other pet food industry organizations and individual special interest groups to scare people away from raw pet diets aren't having the intended effect.
