Study title: Individualized dosing of carboplatin in cats with injection site sarcomas

  • Inclusion criteria: Cats with histological confirmation of tumor type and a measurable primary tumor or metastatic lesion.

  • Purpose: Determine the response rate and toxicity of carboplatin treatment (dosage based on GFR) in cats with injection site sarcomas. It is hypothesized that individualized dosing of carboplatin based on kidney function will be effective and well tolerated.

  • Benefit: Study pays for cost of GFR, two carboplatin treatments, and CBC monitoring after treatment.
