Oncology clinicians are now enrolling dogs in a 5-year study that will evaluate a new cancer prevention vaccine. Researchers at Colorado State University, University of California-Davis, and the University of Wisconsin plan to include 800 dogs between the 3 study sites. The vaccine will target abnormal proteins commonly found on the surface of cancer cells, and if successful will help prevent a wide range of tumors.
