The Vaccination Against Canine Cancer clinical trial is underway at Colorado State University, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of California at Davis, where veterinarians will monitor the health of 150 enrolled dogs for five years. A $6.4 million grant from the Open Philanthropy Project is supporting development of the vaccine for multiple types of cancer, and the result could translate to humans, says veterinarian Douglas Thamm, director of clinical research at CSU's Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
