Prezentare

One Medicine War on Cancer describes the innovation of comparative cancer medicine that changed the course of how veterinarians deal with malignancies. Gordon H. Theilen, DVM, DACIVM-Oncology, and his colleagues were able to unlock the mystery of how neoplasia develops, through their research and discovery of RNA tumor viruses. Dr. Theilen documented the cause of acute developing tumors in turkeys, which he named reticuloendotheliosis (previously known as acute lymphomatosis). He was lead co-discoverer of feline sarcoma and simian sarcoma viruses. These three viruses contain oncogenes that are associated with various forms of human cancer. He studied leukemia in cats and cattle, which led to control and prevention of these retroviral infectious forms of cancer.

Working with researchers in human and veterinary medicine led to the concept of One Medicine War on Cancer. This book is a sequel to The Boy with the Wounded Thumb, an autobiography of the life of Dr. Theilen, from humble beginnings to fulfilling his desire to become a veterinarian. This second volume chronicles the scientific work, special education, and opportunities in which he was fortunate to participate at international centers, including the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, Royal Marsden Hospital in London, and Justus Liebig University, Giessen, Germany.

The legions of veterinary students whom Dr. Theilen taught during his four decades as a distinguished professor of surgical and radiological sciences at the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine, have helped enrich veterinary comparative cancer medicine as an essential discipline in veterinary education.
