Description

Meet Petey, a pit bull mix whose life was extended thanks to a partnership between Emory University Hospital Midtown neurosurgeon Costas Hadjipanayis and the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine. Together, Emory and UGA are testing a cancer fighting agent on terminally ill dogs with naturally occurring brain tumors. Researchers hope that the research will help bring new brain cancer therapies to humans by assessing results in dogs with similar diseases.
