My vet linked up to a cancer clinical trial at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMED) recently and I clicked through the article. The trial is for a methodology that doesn't use chemo or radiation, instead injecting an abx directly into the tumor. It'll be intended for humans but they're doing preliminary studies on dogs...at no charge. I'm trying to get Max enrolled but of course they want biopsy pathology which I never did because I assumed we'd do the palliative route. So tomorrow he's going back to the dental specialist for a biopsy with a hopeful quick pathology report so I can get Max enrolled. The dogs they've treated to date have had remarkable recoveries, even when there's metastisis so I have a glimmer of hope.
Several trials have been sent over from the vet but most were travel or cost prohibitive, this one is local so, since we have nothing to lose we're going for it. Send good biopsy vibes for tomorrow and cross your crossables for this study, it would be amazing if it worked. I'd probably cry and kiss someone.
