TODAY Show Discusses Palladia for Dogs

Posted by Erich Trapp on December 22, 2010

Thanks to Chase Away Cancer on Facebook for the link to this video article on the use of Palladia for the treatment of Mast Cell tumors in dogs. Please follow this link to the video on The Today Show.

Like all treatments for cancer, Palladia is not without risks. If you are administering Palladia to your dog, please follow these precautions:

Precautions Necessary When Handling Palladia

Palladia is an anti-cancer medication and, as such, it needs to be handled very carefully. Palladia may be dangerous to unborn fetuses when handled by pregnant women. Women who are pregnant, nursing or planning to become pregnant need to be especially careful in handling the medication.

Children should not be allowed to handle Palladia and Palladia should be stored in a secure location, as should all prescription medications.

When handling Palladia, dog owners:

* should wash their hands thoroughly after handling the tablets.
* should not try to split or break tablets.
* should wear gloves when it is necessary to handle broken tablets.
* should administer Palladia tablets to their dog immediately after removing from the bottle.
* should not handle tablets spit out by the dog without gloves.
* should check to make certain the dog has ingested the Palladia tablet completely if hiding the tablet in food.

Dog owners should wear gloves when cleaning up urine, stool or vomit from Palladia-treated dogs. Urine, stool or vomit produced by the dog should be tightly sealed in plastic trash bags, along with any paper towels used to clean up messes. The plastic trash bag may be disposed of with regular household trash once tightly closed.

Any towels, blankets or other items soiled with urine, stool or vomit from the Palladia-treated dog should not be washed with regular laundry.

Current Clinical Trials at the The University of Missouri

Posted by Erich Trapp on December 21, 2010

Cancer Patients Sought for Funded Clinical Trials

The University of Missouri is currently seeking patients for enrollment in funded oncology clinical trials. Study goals and suitability for each patient are discussed in detail with the clients prior to enrollment. Although clinical trial enrollment may not be the best option for all patients, in many cases, clinical trial participation provides the opportunity to receive novel, cutting-edge therapies free of charge or at a reduced cost and may facilitate treatment of pets where it would not otherwise be possible due to financial constraints or lack of other therapy options. Criteria for enrollment are outlined for each tumor type. Please direct referrals or questions to Debbie Tate, RVT (clinical trials coordinator) or the Oncology Clinical Trials Service at 573-882-7821.

For the full article, please follow this link.

There is quite an extensive list of studies on their website. Scroll down their page for more information on:

• Palladia™ for Canine Splenic Hemangiosarcoma
• Inhalant chemotherapy for canine lung cancer (NOT OPEN YET)
• Radioactive Gold Nanoparticles or Palladium Brachytherapy for imaging and treatment of canine prostate cancer
• Tavocept use to mitigate nephrotoxicity associated with cisplatin and piroxicam treatment of canine bladder cancer
• Bcl-2 Canine Lymphoma Study
