  • Evaluation of Multidrug Resistance Genes in Primary Canine Lymphoma Cells Exposed to Enrofloxacin and Predisolone – Auburn University.  Funded in cooperation with the AKC Canine Health Foundation and other Parent Clubs ($500). CHF Grant #1226 – Note: This research may result in changes in the management of patients with lymphoma or suspected lymphoma regarding steroid and antibiotic treatment. Based on our Health Survey done in 2004 – 2005, cancer was the number two cause of death in Cavaliers.  The Trustees believe that cancer research is very  important to our breed.
