Mammary Cancer Clinical Trial at Auburn University


Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine
Clinical Trial for Canine Mammary Cancer

The College of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University in Alabama  is opening a clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of a new cellular therapeutic vaccine directed against mammary cancer in dogs.

Dogs can be spayed or intact with diagnosed or suspected multifocal mammary cancer and should be without radiographic evidence of disseminated metastatic disease (micro-metastases only). 

They are looking for owners of such dogs to be identified for potential recruitment into the clinical trial prior to treatment.  The treatment protocol lasts approximately 10-12 weeks followed by rechecks for the remainder of  one year, and will be provided without charge for qualified enrollees.  Referral from the owner’s personal Veterinarian or Veterinary Clinic is preferred.
