A new clinical trial at 3 US veterinary schools will study whether a vaccine can help prevent a variety of cancers. With plans to enroll 800 dogs, this is the largest such trial in veterinary medicine. If successful, a similar approach could lead to a human cancer vaccine.
Read more about the first dogs enrolled in the cancer vaccine clinical trial at the University of Wisconsin news website.
More information on treatment of cancer in dogs is available in the Merck Veterinary Manual.
