It is important to note that inhalation treatments are being done by owners at home. If your dog is enrolled in the study, the following will be done:
You will be responsible for tests to determine eligibility and keeping all scheduled appointments. Once your pet has been determined as eligible the study will cover the cost of the appointment including, physical exams, thoracic radiographs, bloodwork (CBC and Chemistry) the IL-15, and anything specifically related to the trial. In the event of an adverse event that is directly related to the trial, the study will cover up to $2000 for medical treatment. The owner will be responsible for filling out several reporting forms to let us know how your pet has been doing at home and returning the nebulizer and leftover supplies at the end of treatment.
We are looking for dogs diagnosed with osteosarcoma or melanoma that has spread to the lungs.
To determine eligibility, your dog will need a physical exam, blood tests (including a complete blood count and serum chemistry panel), urinalysis, and chest x-rays. If the type of cancer is unknown, additional tests may be required in order to confirm the type of cancer before being allowed to take part in the study.
