Name your price for a Tripawds Bandanna, and help keep this community online!

I am just curious if anyone has ever enrolled their tripawd in a clinical trial for lung mets due to osteosarcoma? HoneyBear has already had great success and we are doing metronomic therapy to keep mets "at bay," but of course I would love to do more. Just curious if anyone has any advice on this good or bad. Thanks in advance!

Soooo glad to hear sseet Honey Bear is doing well!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 Made my day!!!
There was a recent post about surgery as an option should mets be discovered (it was under Manni's thread), but o ekf the techies will have to find any clinical trials posted here. I'm pretty sure things have been posted in the blogs, but I couldn't find them (not very good at all using "search"!).
Did you see the most recent blog Jerry did on Metronomics? It was just last week........go to "search recent blogs" and you'll see It.
Lots of hugs and well wishes to you and Honey Bear!!

Hi Sheena, it's good to hear from you! I'm so thrilled Honey Bear is doing well.
Which clinical trials are you considering? Just curious.
We didn't do a clinical trial specifically for lung mets, we did one for K9 Immunity after Jerry had mets. But others have done trials and been happy with how they went. Here are some blog posts that may help you decide:

Thank you both for replying! HoneyBear has been on metronomic therapy for awhile now. I looked into SRS Radiation but they didn't think that was a wise choice since it wouldn't stop new ones from forming. Right now Colorado State has a couple specifically for lung metastasis. One is using Palladia with another drug and another is a stem cell vaccine in addition to a drug that ramps up the immune system. We are all for trying as long as there aren't horrible side effects for HoneyBear and who knows maybe she could possibly help others too! I have a new blog coming soon, probably tomorrow :-). Thanks Jerry for those blog topics I will definitely check them out!

Awesome choice, we love the CSU folks, you can't go wrong with them. If you decide to do it let us know, we are in the area and would love to meet your amazing cancer survivor!
