From the Kansas City Business Journal, "Olathe company reports good results for dog cancer treatment"
A KC-area animal health company reported that a new treatment for bone cancer in dogs tripled the survival time.
Elias Animal Health said that in a trial involving 15 dogs diagnosed with osteosarcoma, its Elias Cancer Immunotherapy treatment resulted in a median survival time of 415 days, compared with 134 days for dogs only undergoing surgery for treatment. Osteosarcoma is an aggressive cancer for which chemotherapy failures are common.
The Elias Animal Health website has detailed information about how the vaccine works. We've requested an interview with company reps, stay tuned!
