5 MARK W. ALLAM LECTURE 8:00-9:30am, Thursday, Grand Ballroom, Gold Level, East Tower A light continental breakfast is provided at 7:30am. Oncologic and Reconstructive Success in Osteogenic Sarcoma: Lessons from the Veterinary and Human Experience John H. Healey, MD, FACS Chief, Orthopaedic Oncology Service, Vice-Chair, Department of Surgery Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Weill Medical College of Cornell University With more than 25 years experience diagnosing and treating sarcomas and benign tumors of the bone and soft tissue, Dr. Healey is an expert at removing tumors while preserving limbs in surgery. He rebuilds functional bones and joints with joint replacements and bone transplants. He also has a special interest in treating children who have bone cancers (osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma). Dr. Healey s research involves understanding sarcoma biology, developing new ways to deliver chemotherapy to tumors and improving the durability and function of joint replacements. He has invented and developed four different joint replacement systems and has patented several methods to deliver drugs to tumors and to study cancers in the laboratory. In addition to his role as Chief of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center s Orthopaedic Service, he is a Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. This lecture reviews the progress in chemotherapy, highlights basic science advances that may change treatment and introduces new prosthetic measures that will make joint reconstruction more durable. Progress in these realms promises to transform osteogenic sarcoma care and be relevant to veterinary as well as human disease. Mark W. Allam Lecture The most recent US national study INT-133 was a factorial double randomized trial of ifosfamide preoperatively and liposomal Muramyl tripeptide phosphoethanolamine (MTP- PE) in addition to conventional three drug chemotherapy. This was an exciting trial because MTP-PE was the most effective single agent in naturally occurring dog osteogenic sarcoma constituting the first application of a biologic agent as a first line adjuvant therapy for cancer. Patients who received ifosfamide at those doses and schedule had the worst prognosis, whereas patients who received both ifosfamide and MTP-PE had the best prognosis. Using the primary outcome measure, overall survival, there was a dramatic reduction of recurrence by 30% and death by 25%. It is particularly appealing since there was no overlapping toxicity with conventional chemotherapy agents. The agent is the focus of new protocols under development in the Children s Oncology Group. The Mark W. Allam Lecture is named for the late Dean Emeritus of the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Allam was a co-founder of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. He was an avid proponent of the concept of one medicine the idea that the similarities between human and animal medicine are great and that these two fields can benefit considerably from the discoveries made in each field. The Lecture was instituted to foster this concept and has been given annually since Sponsored by ACVS Industry Partner Mark W.

The motivation for changing the certification examination is to strengthen surgical training in all ACVS residency programs by encouraging the earlier learning of fundamental surgical principles that would immediately benefit residents in clinical training. This would be accomplished by administering a preliminary written examination at regional testing centers in the spring of each year, with the intent that residents would have the opportunity to take this examination in year two of their residency ACVS Veterinary Symposium Chicago, Illinois 33

Sponsored by This year the group will enjoy guided tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and the historic neighborhood of Oak Park, IL. Experimenting with forms and materials, Frank Lloyd Wright developed a distinctly American form of architecture. The forward-thinking Wright began his career in Oak Park, Illinois, and came to be recognized as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. Every structure he created was informed by his belief that beautifully designed buildings make a difference in our lives. The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio (1889/1898) served as Wright's private residence and workplace from 1889 to 1909 the first 20 years of his career. Wright used his home as an architectural laboratory, experimenting with design concepts that contain the seeds of his architectural philosophy. In 1898 Wright added a studio, described by a fellowarchitect as a workplace with "inspiration everywhere." In the Studio, Wright and his associates developed a new American architecture, the Prairie style, and designed 125 structures from this location. The bus tour of Oak Park will be led by trained interpreters who will guide the group through the Historic District surrounding the Wright Home and Studio. Oak Park is home to the world's largest collection of Wright-designed buildings. Discover the development of Wright's style between 1889 and 1909, and trace the evolution of American residential architecture. Photographer: Don Kalec. Collection of Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust. Photographer: Tim Long. Collection of Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust. Please gather in the West Lobby, Green Level at 12:15pm for this special tour. The Wright Home and Studio tour does require an hour of walking and standing so don t forget to wear comfortable shoes.

39 Award Recipient ACVS FOUNDATION LEGENDS AWARD Presented at the Mark W. Allam Lecture & Awards Ceremony 8:00-9:30am, Thursday, Grand Ballroom, Gold Level, East Tower The ACVS Foundation is pleased to announce that Robert L. Leighton, VMD, Diplomate ACVS, is the recipient of the 2011 ACVS Foundation Legends Award for his dedication and contributions to the field of veterinary surgery. Dr. Leighton, an ACVS charter member in 1966, completed his veterinary education at the University of Pennsylvania in 1941 with an internship at the Angell Memorial Animal Hospital. Throughout his distinguished career, with the assistance of his father, a master machinist, he invented numerous surgical instruments including an equine mouth speculum, a protected perforating knife, an external fixator (described in Dr. William G. Whittick s book Canine Fracture Treatment), the Leighton Pin Guide and the Leighton Shuttle Pin, which was a a precursor to the toggle and dowel pin techniques. Dr. Leighton developed the use of full thickness skin for treatment of the ruptured anterior cruciate ligiament in dogs. Additionally, he performed the first infraspinatus surgery in the United States. Dr. Leighton has been involved throughout his career with providing continuing education. His speaking and teaching engagements, which began in 1947 in Chicago, have resulted in world-wide exposure. He was responsible for extending continuing education to Chile and Argentina and, as a result, received an honorary degree from the University of Buenos Aires. Although now retired, he continues to provide continuing education in Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand. Dr. Leighton served in the Veterinary Corps during World War II and later went on to become the first chief of surgery at the Animal Medical Center in New York. Robert L. Leighton The ACVS Foundation Legends Award recognizes ACVS Diplomates who have developed a surgical or diagnostic procedure of significant value, proven by becoming the treatment or test of choice for a given condition. The procedure or test has withstood the test of time and, while perhaps modified over time, remains the treatment or diagnostic method of choice or the scientific basis for the current treatment of choice. The procedure or test is unique and involves advancements in veterinary surgical science and not reapplication of general medical science. Past recipients of the ACVS Foundation Legends Award: 2005 George Wilson, VMD, MSc 2006 Martin P. DeAngelis, DVM 2007 Charles W. Raker, VMD 2008 Marvin L. Olmstead, DVM, MS 2009 George E. Eyster, VMD, MS 2010 Larry R. Bramlage, DVM, MS Throughout Dr. Leighton s career he has written a number of books and is the co-author of Small Animal Orthopedics and Radiology of Small Animal Fracture Management. He also authored 140 refereed articles and received 15 awards.

Brinker Endowed Professor of Surgery at Michigan State University, a position he still holds. He has contributed immensely, in both research and teaching, to the knowledge of veterinary orthopedic surgery as well as human orthopedic surgery by teaching and supervising undergraduate students, residents, Steven P. Arnoczky graduate students and postdoctoral fellows (including MD PhD, DVM PhD, and DVM MS fellows). He has been the Director of the Comparative Orthopaedic Research Laboratory since gaining his endowed position at Michigan State University.

41 Award Recipient AL & CAROLYN SCHILLER DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD Presented at the Mark W. Allam Lecture & Awards Ceremony 8:00-9:30am, Thursday, Grand Ballroom, Gold Level, East Tower The ACVS Board of Regents has selected Robert A. Taylor, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVS, as the recipient of the Al & Carolyn Schiller Distinguished Service Award for his exceptional contributions to the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. Since becoming an ACVS Diplomate in 1985, Dr. Taylor has demonstrated a remarkable ongoing commitment to the ACVS. Shortly after attaining Diplomate status, he served on both the Constitution and Bylaws Committee and the Annual Meeting Committee and, in 1994, was appointed ACVS Treasurer. Dr. Taylor was a steady, forward thinking steward of the College s finances for over fifteen years. During his tenure, ACVS saw tremendous growth in the number of members, requests for services and requirements for maximizing large expenses balanced with appropriate money fund management. Dr. Taylor initiated significant changes in how the monetary aspects of the College were handled. One of his most notable decisions, with Board approval, was to secure a professional investment organization to assist with the College s investments, which resulted in a significant increase in the net worth of the ACVS, thereby enabling the College to solidify and strengthen its programs. With the thought of securing a better financial future for the ACVS, Dr. Taylor was one of the first members of the Board of Regents to suggest the College purchase, rather than lease, its office space. He spent many hours working with the Executive Director evaluating potential properties, including numerous trips at his own expense to the Washington, DC area to inspect, select and negotiate for the office space. As a founding member, Treasurer and strong supporter of the ACVS Foundation, Dr. Taylor believed that the ACVS Foundation needed to stand independently from the College s business operations. His public declaration on this issue Robert A. Taylor was instrumental to the Foundation s continued commitment to this goal. Dr. Taylor is proud of his Diplomate status and the reasons behind the College s existence. He demonstrated this by sharing his surgical knowledge with the many veterinarians from around the world that would come to his hospital to scrub in with him; lecturing nationally and internationally on leading edge topics of the time; and his community service not only to his local and state veterinary association in leadership positions, but a wide variety of organizations where his training was a service to his community. Through Dr. Taylor s sustained enthusiastic involvement, and his way of thinking outside the box, the College has benefitted greatly. A colleague writes, You will find no better ambassador for the American College of Veterinary Surgeons than Bob Taylor. Past recipients of the Al & Carolyn Schiller Distinguished Service Award: 1992 William J. Donawick, DVM 1994 Ghery D. Pettit, DVM 1997 John Jack F. Fessler, DVM, MS 2009 Alan J. Lipowitz, DVM, MS Dr. Taylor s contributions to the ACVS have been innumerable during a period when the College experienced significant changes the budget grew to the millions, residency programs and the pipeline for examinees and membership were expanding and changing, the Symposia made strides in becoming bigger and better, the ACVS administration moved from a management company to its own staff, the office changed location with the purchase of property and an investment portfolio was established for both ACVS and the ACVS Foundation for fiscal soundness ACVS Veterinary Symposium Chicago, Illinois 39

87 Only NSAID approved for cats It s worth my weight in pain relief. For an postoperative pain and inflammation, METACAM Solution for Injection really measures up. Convenient dosing based on 1-lb weight intervals For use in orthopedic surgery, ovariohysterectomy, and castration Administer a single, one-time Sub-Q injection at a dose of 0.14 mg/lb (0.3 mg/kg) body weight prior to surgery Quickly and easily drawn up into a syringe using a 25-gauge needle less viscous than other injectable NSAIDs No refrigeration necessary Think easy. Think cats. Think METACAM. As a class, cyclo-oxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney, or liver side effects. Pets should be evaluated for pre-existing conditions and currently prescribed medications prior to treatment with METACAM. Anesthetic drugs may affect renal perfusion; approach concomitant use of anesthetics and NSAIDs cautiously. Use of parenteral fluids during surgery is recommended. Concurrent use of nephrotoxic medications should be carefully approached. Multiple injections or concurrent or follow up use with an NSAID (including METACAM) or corticosteroid should be avoided. If side effects occur, pet owners should contact their veterinarian.

88 Package Insert for Cats NADA , Approved by FDA 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug for use in dogs and cats only Caution: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. Warning: Repeated use of meloxicam in cats has been associated with acute renal failure and death. Do not administer additional injectable or oral meloxicam to cats. See Contraindications, Warnings, and Precautions for detailed information. Description: Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the oxicam class. Each ml of this sterile product for injection contains meloxicam 5.0 mg, alcohol 15%, glycofurol 10%, poloxamer 188 5%, sodium chloride 0.6%, glycine 0.5% and meglumine 0.3%, in water for injection, ph adjusted with sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid. Indications: Cats: For the control of postoperative pain and inflammation associated with orthopedic surgery, ovariohysterectomy and castration when administered prior to surgery. Dosage and Administration: Carefully consider the potential benefits and risk of Metacam and other treatment options before deciding to use Metacam. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response. Cats: Administer a single, one-time subcutaneous dose of Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection to cats at a dose of 0.14 mg/lb (0.3 mg/kg) body weight. Use of additional meloxicam or other NSAIDs is contraindicated. (See Contraindications). To ensure accuracy of dosing, the use of a 1 ml graduated syringe is recommended. Contraindications: Cats with known hypersensitivity to meloxicam should not receive Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection. Additional doses of meloxicam or other NSAIDs in cats are contraindicated, as no safe dosage for repeated NSAID administration has been established (See Animal Safety). Do not use meloxicam in cats with pre-existing renal dysfunction. Warnings: Not for use in humans. Keep this and all medications out of reach of children. Consult a physician in case of accidental ingestion by humans. For subcutaneous (SQ) injectable use in cats. Do not use IV in cats. Do not administer a second dose of meloxicam. Do not follow the single, one-time dose of meloxicam with any other NSAID. Do not administer Metacam Oral Suspension following the single, one-time injectable dose of meloxicam. When administering any NSAID, appropriate laboratory testing to establish hematological and serum biochemical baseline data is recommended prior to use in dogs and cats. All cats should undergo a thorough history and physical examination before administering meloxicam. Do not repeat the single, one-time dose of meloxicam in cats. Owner should be advised to observe their cats for signs of potential drug toxicity. Precautions: The safe use of Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection in cats younger than 4 months of age, cats used for breeding, or in pregnant or lactating queens has not been evaluated. Meloxicam is not recommended for use in cats with bleeding disorders, as safety has not been established in cats with these disorders. Safety has not been established for intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) use in cats. When administering Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection, use a syringe of appropriate size to ensure precise dosing. As a class, cyclo-oxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, renal, and hepatic toxicity. Sensitivity to drug-associated adverse events varies with the individual patient. Cats that have experienced adverse reactions from one NSAID may experience adverse reactions from another NSAID. NSAIDs may inhibit the prostaglandins that maintain normal homeostatic function. Such antiprostaglandin effects may result in clinically significant disease in patients with underlying or preexisting disease that has not been previously diagnosed. Patients at greatest risk for adverse events are those that are dehydrated, on concomitant diuretic therapy, or those with existing renal, cardiovascular, and/or hepatic dysfunction. Concurrent administration of potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be carefully approached and monitored. Anesthetic drugs may affect renal perfusion; approach concomitant use of anesthetics and NSAIDs cautiously. Appropriate monitoring procedures should be employed during all surgical procedures. The use of perioperative parenteral fluids is recommended to decrease potential renal complications when using NSAIDs. If additional pain medication is needed after the single one-time dose of meloxicam, a non-nsaid class of analgesic may be necessary. In one study 1, one cat in each NSAID treatment group had increased intraoperative hemorrhage. Since NSAIDs possess the potential to induce gastrointestinal ulcerations and/or gastrointestinal perforation, concomitant use of meloxicam with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as NSAIDs or corticosteroids, should be avoided. Consider appropriate washout times when switching from corticosteroid use to meloxicam in cats. As a single use product in cats, meloxicam should not be followed by additional NSAIDs or corticosteroids. The use of concomitantly protein-bound drugs with Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection has not been studied in cats. Commonly used protein-bound drugs include cardiac, anticonvulsant, and behavioral medications. The influence of concomitant drugs that may inhibit metabolism of Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection has not been evaluated. Drug compatibility should be monitored in patients requiring adjunctive therapy. The effect of cyclo-oxygenase inhibition and the potential for thromboembolic occurrence or a hypercoagulable state has not been studied. Adverse Reactions: Cats: A field study involving 138 cats was conducted. Of the 72 cats receiving Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection, six cats (8.3%) experienced post-treatment elevated serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels. The pretreatment values were in the normal range. Of the 66 cats in the butorphanol treatment group, no cats experienced post-treatment elevated serum blood urea nitrogen levels. Nine cats (12.5%) receiving Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection had post-treatment anemia. Pretreatment, these cats all had hematocrit and hemoglobin values in the normal range. Four cats (6.1%) in the butorphanol treatment group had post-treatment anemia. All but one cat, who had a mild anemia pre-treatment (hematocrit=21% and hemoglobin=7.0 g/dl) had normal pre-treatment values. Twentyfour hours after the injection with Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection, one cat experienced pain upon palpation of the injection site. Foreign Experience: Repeated use in cats has been associated with acute renal failure and death. In studies used for the foreign approval of Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection in cats, lethargy, vomiting, inappetance, and transient pain immediately after injection were noted. Diarrhea and fecal occult blood have also been reported. Post-Approval Experience (Rev. 2009): The following adverse reactions are based on post-approval adverse drug event reporting. The categories are listed in decreasing order of frequency by body system: Urinary: azotemia, elevated creatinine, elevated phosphorus, renal failure Gastrointestinal: anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea Neurologic/Behavioral: lethargy, depression Hematologic: anemia Death has been reported as an outcome of the adverse events listed above. Acute renal failure and death have been associated with the use of meloxicam in cats. To report suspected adverse reactions, to obtain a Material Safety Data Sheet, or for technical assistance, call METACAM ( ). For a complete listing of adverse reactions for meloxicam reported to the CVM see: Information For Cat Owners: Meloxicam, like other NSAIDs, is not free from adverse reactions. Owners should be advised of the potential for adverse reactions and be informed of the clinical signs associated with NSAID intolerance. Adverse reactions may include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, decreased appetite and behavioral changes. Cat owners should be advised when their pet has received a meloxicam injection. Cat owners should contact their veterinarian immediately if possible adverse reactions are observed. Clinical Pharmacology: Meloxicam has nearly 100% bioavailability after subcutaneous injection in cats. The terminal elimination half life after a single dose is estimated to be approximately 15 hrs (+/- 10%) in cats. Peak drug concentrations of 1.1 mcg/ml can be expected to occur within 1.5 hours following a 0.3 mg/kg subcutaneous injection in cats. The volume of distribution (Vd) in cats is approximately 0.27 L/kg, with an estimated total systemic clearance of L/hr/kg. The drug is 97% bound to feline plasma proteins. Effectiveness: Cats: The effectiveness of Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection was demonstrated in a masked field study involving a total of 138 cats representing various breeds. This study used butorphanol as an active control. Cats received either a single subcutaneous injection of 0.3 mg/kg Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection or 0.4 mg/ kg butorphanol prior to onychectomy, either alone or in conjunction with surgical neutering. All cats were premedicated with acepromazine, induced with propofol and maintained on isoflurane. Pain assessment variables evaluated by veterinarians included additional pain intervention therapy, gait/lameness score, analgesia score, sedation score, general impression score, recovery score, and visual analog scale score. Additionally, a cumulative pain score, which was the summation of the analgesia, sedation, heart rate and respiratory rate scores was evaluated. A palpometer was used to quantify the pain threshold. A substantial number of cats required additional intervention in the 0-24 hour postsurgical period, with the majority of these interventions taking place within the first hour. Therefore, the percentage of cats in each group that received one or more interventions was designated as the primary assessment variable. Approximately half of the cats in each group received a pain intervention as a result of the first (time 0) post-surgical evaluation, i.e., extubation. At this point, the need to provide a pain intervention was not statistically significant between the two groups (p=0.7215). However, the median number of interventions was one per cat in the meloxicam group and two per cat in the butorphanol group and this difference was statistically significant (p=0.0021). The statistical evaluation supports the conclusion that the meloxicam test article is non-inferior to the butorphanol active control. Fortyeight of the 72 cats in the meloxicam group received one or more interventions (66.7%), and 47 of 66 cats in the butorphanol group received one or more interventions (71.2%). The number of interventions administered to the meloxicam group was less than the butorphanol group at 1, 3, 5, 8, 12, and 24 hours postsurgery. Cats receiving Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection showed improvement in the pain assessment variables. Animal Safety: Cats: 3 Day Target Animal Safety Study-In a three day safety study, subcutaneous Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection administration to healthy cats at up to 1.5 mg/kg (5X the recommended dose) resulted in vomiting in three cats (1 of 6 control cats and 2 of 6 cats in 5X) and loose stools in four cats (2 of 6 control cats and 2 of 6 cats in 5X). Fecal occult blood was detected in ten of the twenty four cats, including two cats in the control group. This was not a dose-related event. Clinically significant hematologic changes seen included increased PT and APTT in two cats (1 of 6 control cats and 1 of 6 cats in 5X), and elevated white blood cell counts in cats having renal or GI tract lesions. Serum chemistry changes observed included decreased total protein in four of 24 cats (1 of 6 cats in 1X, 2 of 6 cats in 3X and 1 of 6 cats in 5X), concomitant increases in blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine values in 2 of 6 cats in 5X. Histological examination revealed gastrointestinal lesions ranging from inflammatory cell infiltration of the mucosa of the GI tract to erosions. Mesenteric lymphadenopathy was identified in 1 of 6 cats in 1X. Renal changes ranged from dilated medullary (2 of 6 cats in 1X, 1 of 6 cats in 3X, and 1 of 6 cats in 5X) and cortical (3 of 6 cats in 1X, 1 of 6 cats in 3X, and 3 of 6 cats in 5X) tubules and inflammation (2 of 6 cats in 1X, 2 of 6 cats in 3X, and 2 of 6 cats in 5X) or fibrosis (2 of 6 cats in 3X and 2 of 6 cats in 5X) of the interstitium to necrosis of the tip of the papilla (5 of 6 cats in 5X). Subsequent oral dosing-in a nine day study with three treatment groups, Metacam 5 mg/ml Solution for Injection was given as a single subcutaneous injection using doses of 0 mg/kg (saline injection), 0.3 mg/kg and 0.6 mg/kg on Day 0. Metacam Oral Suspension, 1.5 mg/ml or saline was then administered orally once-daily at the same respective dose (0.3 or 0.6 mg/kg) for eight consecutive days. Clinical adverse reactions included vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, and decreased food consumption in the treated groups, and one day of diarrhea in one control cat. The gross necropsy report includes observation of reddened GI mucosa in 3 of 4 cats in the 0.3 mg/ kg group and 1 of 4 cats in the 0.6 mg/kg group. All saline-treated cats were normal. By Day 9, one cat in both the 0.3 mg/kg group and the 0.6 mg/kg group died and another cat in the 0.3 mg/kg group was moribund. The cause of death for these cats could not be determined, although the pathologist reported pyloric/duodenal ulceration in the cats in 0.6 mg/kg group. The safety studies demonstrate a narrow margin of safety.
