Just came across this osteosarcoma study for dogs at Auburn University that’s being funded by the AKC. Breeds they are studying are: Rottweiler, Greyhound, Saint Bernard, Great Dane, Doberman Pinscher, Irish Setter, Golden Retriever

AKC Canine Health Foundation-Funded Research on the Cutting Edge: Canine Osteosarcoma Patients Find Hope in Viral Therapy Treatment
05/27/2014

Engineering viruses to attack tumors is not strictly for human use, it is also being used in dogs. In research funded by the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF), Dr. Bruce Smith, VMD, PhD of Auburn University uses biotechnology to convert adenovirus, a common human and canine virus, into a treatment for canine osteosarcoma. Dr. Smith’s research reprograms a canine adenovirus to attack tumor cells and was funded by CHF in 2012, nearly two years prior to the recent clinical trial at the Mayo Clinic for human myeloma patients using the measles virus.

If you have one of those breeds GET IN THE STUDY!!!

The care your hound will get is first rate.  The experience I have had with Shilo at UPenn is nothing but spectacular.  Its not like your regular vet that might have seen a few dogs with cancer over the last few years… these Oncologists deal with it day in and day out and its amazing what they know/can do.  Not knocking your local vet… but these Oncologists see more cancer in a week then most vets see in their careers.

Ask lots of questions, make sure you are still doing whats best for your hound… but volunteer… the least that can happen is that your dog could go into remission or even be cured!

That’s worth a few hours driving.

One thing that really hurts these trials is that they don’t have ‘evening’ hours.. so unless you can spare the time off or have a spouse I know that the time involved can be a strain with work.

But if you can… participate!

This is Chances hospital. Unfortunately, he didn’t qualify for the trial but I hear they have had some promising results. I was upset at first that he didn’t get in it but he’s basically in remission now after 6 rounds of chemo and no further treatment. Auburn is a great vet school!

Chance is a 10ish Shetland Sheepdog Mix who was rescued from the shelter in January of 2013 and diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in September of 2013. He had a front left amputation and 6 rounds of carboplatin. He had a great 11 months and was diagnosed with lung mets on 8/23/14. He was released to the bridge on 8/28/14.
