Immunotherapy has already had promising results in prevention of metastatic disease and prolonging overall survival of dogs that have undergone amputation and chemotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether vaccination with a tumor-targeting cancer vaccine, combined with radiation therapy, can decrease bone cancer pain and prolong overall survival.
The treatment of the dog first enrolled in this trial has shown promising results.
