A Cancer Drug Trial For Dogs Presented At The RSNA Annual Meeting
December 4, 2019

The Y90 treatment approach is based on an already successful human liver cancer treatment, which includes injecting a precise amount of radiation into or close to the tumor using small radioactive glass beads. So far,  Dr. Clifford Weiss and his team have tested the treatment on five pets alongside the veterinarians at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Of five treated, four showed initial improvement, with one now presenting no radiological or behavioral signs of glioma six months post-treatment.

Though more studies on safety and efficacy are needed, the researchers foresee being able to use this approach to treat human brain tumors within the next few years.
