The primary objective of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose, dose-limiting toxicities, safe starting dose, and pharmacodynamic effect of TANOVEA™ (rabacfosadine for injection) in cats with lymphoma, lymphoid leukemia or multiple myeloma/plasma cell tumor.

A secondary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy and determine progression-free survival in treated cats.

General health: Cats must be free of severe underlying disease (including underlying pulmonary pathology), be FeLV, and FIV negative, and have an expected survival of at least 6 weeks.

Exclusion criteria:

  • Cats that have received chemotherapy within 2 weeks of Day 0.
  • Cats that have received non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) within 72 hours of Day 0. While on study, treatment with prednisone (1 mg/kg every other day) is acceptable.
