TRILOGY: A NON-SURGICAL OPTION FOR CANINE SOFT TISSUE SARCOMA (STS)

Principle Investigator

Michael W. Nolan

Description

NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine is looking for dogs diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma for a new clinical trial evaluating ultrasound-mediated tumor oxygenation. This minimally invasive technology will deliver oxygen to tumor tissue during radiation treatment. This will enhance tumor radiation sensitivity and may increase tumor response.

Testing Requirements

A complete staging work-up will be performed, and patients will be treated with standard of care radiation therapy on 5 consecutive days. 4 follow-up visits will be required. Total participation will last about 6 months.

Enrollment Start

10/01/2018

Enrollment Finish

10/01/2023

Eligibility

All dogs participating in this study must be diagnosed with a soft tissue sarcoma. Dogs must be at least 1 year old, weigh a minimum of 3.5kg, healthy and have not received any prior radiation.
