What About Pet Cancer Clinical Trials Placebos?
We are honored that our question about placebos in pet cancer clinical trials was selected for the viewer Q&A segment. Here’s what we wanted to know:
Some people believe that entering a dog or a cat in a clinical trial and putting them at risk of receiving a placebo is unethical. Can you tell us how scientists deal with this dilemma when designing a clinical trial?
In this excerpt, watch Drs. Burton and Weishaar explain why placebos don’t happen too often in clinical trials. You’ll also learn how vets look out for the health of trial patients who do get placebos during the study.
Viewers also submitted other pet cancer clinical trials questions such as:
- What’s new with hemangiosarcoma treatment?
- Does clinical trial data get between institutions?
- Are there clinical trials for all types of pet cancers?
Clinical trials do so much to move pet cancer therapy forward. If your pet has the ability to be included in a pet cancer clinical trial study, we encourage you to participate. You both can be part of groundbreaking therapies that just might help all of us reach the ultimate goal: eradicating cancer in pets and people.
