November 2016 -The ATCA has approved a proposal to work with the AUSTTRUST to raise funds to join with the AKC Canine Health Foundation, in funding research to prevent Canine Hemangiosarcoma. This project aims to “A Novel Mechanism to Regulate the Growth of Canine Hemangiosarcoma” This study will verify that tumor cells rely on lipid metabolism for growth, and determine if tumor cells alter the metabolism of fat cells to obtain cellular nutrients and accelerate tumor cell lipid metabolism. Identifying and exploiting a novel mechanism that may disrupt this process by inhibiting the interactions between tumor cells and cells in the tumor environment will speed clinical investigations, and ultimately lead to improved outcomes for dogs with this devastating disease.

To date, November 2016 Aussie lovers have contributed $1135 and the AUSTTRUST has matched that amount.The AUSTTRUST will match any funds raised (up to $2500) by ATCA members and Australian Terrier owners to contribute to this research.

A $25 contibution becomes $50 ; a $100 donation becomes $200; a $500 donation becomes $1000 - A donation of any amount is tax-deductible
