Canine Hemangiosarcoma Cell Line (EFS)

EFS is a canine hemangiosarcoma cell line derived from a tumor in the spleen of a 9-year old spayed female Golden Retriever.

Hemangiosarcoma is a rapidly growing, highly invasive variety of cancer, occurring commonly in dogs. It is a sarcoma arising from the lining of blood vessels. A frequent cause of death is the rupturing of this tumor, causing the patient to rapidly bleed to death.
