NCSU Soft Tissue Sarcoma Trial Seeks Canine Participants

April 8, 2019 — Attention pet parents and animal lovers: the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine is looking for dogs diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma for a new clinical trial evaluating “ultrasound-mediated tumor oxygenation.”
 
This is a minimally invasive technology that will deliver oxygen to tumor tissue during radiation treatment. The procedure is designed to enhance tumor radiation sensitivity and may increase tumor response to treatment.
 
Participation includes a complete staging work-up of physical evaluation and testing. Patients will be treated with radiation therapy on five consecutive days and be required to complete four follow-up visits. Study participation will last a total of about six months. For more information, email NCSU’s Jocelyn Burkit at jlburkit@ncsu.edu.
