Now Enrolling Canine Patients with Liver Tumors
Does your dog have a liver tumor? We are now enrolling canine patients that have a liver tumor into a clinical trial that is using a new therapy called INSPIRE, which uses electrical pulses to safely destroy the cells within a tumor.
This study has two treatment groups.
One group of study applicants that have 1-2 liver tumor measuring between 1-5cm will be screened through the Medical Oncology service at NC State Veterinary hospital for eligibility. If eligible, patients in this group will return one week later for a one time INSPIRE therapy. This will be followed by a surgery a week later to remove the tumor and part of the liver.
The second group of study applicants should have one liver tumor measuring between 2-3cm. Potential candidates will come in through the Medical Oncology service at NC State Veterinary Hospital for a screening appointment to check eligibility for enrollment. If eligible, patients will return one week later for a one time INSPIRE therapy. Patients will then be monitored over a 9 month period which include four recheck appointments. During which patients will receive a CT scan and bloodwork to monitor the destruction of the tumor.
Patients should have a cytological diagnosis of the liver tumor prior to their screening appointment.
Patients that have 1-2 liver tumor measuring between 1-5cm
Patients must weigh at least 30lbs
