Lung mets are evil! Which is why we are so grateful for studies like the ones our friends at Colorado State University are working on:
CANCER VACCINE AND PHARMACOLOGICAL TUMOR MICROENVIRONMENT MODIFICATION TRIAL FOR CANINE METASTATIC OSTEOSARCOMA
Purpose of the study:
To evaluate an osteosarcoma tumor lysate vaccine in combination with losartan and propranolol in dogs with metastatic osteosarcoma
Primary Eligibility Criteria:
- Dogs that have had surgery to remove their primary tumor and a confirmed diagnosis of osteosarcoma with measureable metastatic disease in the lungs on chest X-rays
- Adequate blood work
- Two-week washout from chemotherapy or radiation therapy; no concurrent treatment with any immunosuppressive drugs
- No pre-existing allergic airway disease or a significantly low heart rate
