A cancer vaccine appears to greatly increase dogs' chances of surviving cancer, according to a study by Amsterdam UMC, Cancer Center Amsterdam, and an oncology center for animals, published in the scientific journal Nature Communications on Monday. The researchers treated 35 dogs with spontaneous bladder cancer with the vaccine, and half are still alive 400 days later. Two even wholly recovered.
This vaccine was also used to treat a Malinois, who was diagnosed with bone cancer and had a very short life expectancy. The dog was completely back to normal three months after his tumor was removed and the vaccine administered, said the doctors from the Medical Center for Animals in Amsterdam who treated the 10-year-old Rax.
