BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital/Hope Veterinary Specialists is participating in new clinical study for dogs with untreated lymphoma.
Lymphoma, the most common hematopoietic tumor of dogs, is an aggressive disease. While the majority of dogs will respond to cytotoxic chemotherapy utilizing a standard multi-agent (e.g. CHOP-based) approach, greater than 95% of dogs will relapse.
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of TANOVEA®-CA1 when combined with vincristine, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and prednisone (T-CHOP) in dogs with untreated lymphoma. TANOVEA-CA1 received conditional approval for the treatment of canine lymphoma, which means that when used according to the label, the drug is safe and has a “reasonable expectation of effectiveness” for treating lymphoma in dogs. This study may provide information on a multi-drug treatment protocol that may result in improved outcomes for dogs with multicentric lymphoma.
TANOVEA-CA1 is provided at no cost. The other costs associated with treatment, including staging and treatment with other drugs (vincristine, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and prednisone), are the owner’s responsibility.
