Default new cancer vaccine study

This is interesting. Sure wish it was around in time to try with Farley.


NEW VACCINE AVAILABLE FOR BONE CANCER

Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) is most commonly seen in large and giant breed dogs. It is an aggressive cancer that frequently affects the long bones and despite limb amputation and chemotherapy many dogs die from the cancer that spreads to their lungs.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine are now evaluating a new vaccine for dogs that have been diagnosed with osteosarcoma. If your dog has recently been diagnosed with bone cancer or is currently undergoing chemotherapy for bone cancer he/she may be eligible for vaccination.

Details of the study including the benefits of enrollment are available at:

Alternatively you can contact the Principal Investigator of the study Dr. Nicola Mason directly at: [email protected] or by telephone at: 215 898 3996
