Starting this spring, we will be participating in a study to evaluate the Canine Osteosarcoma Vaccine, Live Listeria Vector (COV-LLV), a conditionally licensed product for dogs with osteosarcoma who have undergone amputation and chemotherapy. For participation, your dog must meet the eligibility requirements listed in the study protocol. Your veterinarian will confirm eligibility by reviewing your dog’s medical history, performing a physical exam, taking thoracic radiographs, and submitting routine blood and urine testing. All dogs enrolled in the study will be treated with the immunotherapy. Please contact our oncology department at 702-871-1152 for more information.
