Osteosarcoma Treatment Clinical Trials at Va Tech

[January 2021]   The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech Animal Cancer Care and Research Center, located in Roanoke, Virginia, recently opened a cutting-edge study to treat osteosarcoma in dogs. The study provides considerable financial support towards the cost of surgery for enrolled dogs.  Large breed dogs like Greyhounds are, sadly, more likely to develop this painful, often-aggressive form of bone cancer. We hope this study, and others like it, will provide new hope for treating cancer in both pets and humans.

The current study is funded by the AKC, and we have funding to continue this work from both the Focused Ultrasound Foundation and the NIH.
