New Treatment for Dogs with Carcinomas, Sarcomas, or Lymphoma Apr 2, 2013
This clinical study sponsored by Johns Hopkins investigates the safety and efficacy of an investigational drug when given in conjunction with a standard chemotherapy agent, liposome-encapsulated doxorubicin. This investigational drug, recombinant canine Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (rc-TNFa), is believed to allow the chemotherapy to target tumor cells more specifically and increase tumor response to chemotherapy.
Dogs with a confirmed diagnosis of any type of cancer (except for mast cell tumors) without any other significant health problems are eligible. Both drugs will be given once intravenously (into a vein), and dogs will be followed for 3 weeks after treatment. Your dog will stay overnight at Penn Vet for 48 hours after treatment, and you will be required to bring your pet back to Penn Vet 1, 2, and 3 weeks after treatment. There is no placebo (sham treatment) group for this study.
