Important study at UPenn for splenic hemangiosarcoma.

FYI - on Facebook


Important study at UPenn for splenic hemangiosarcoma.


The VCIC is now enrolling patients into a new clinical trial for dogs with splenic hemangiosarcoma. This trial will be evaluating the effects of a traditional chinese medicine supplement with anti-cancer properties. A previous trial using the supplement significantly increased survival time in dogs with this type of cancer. Contact us for more information: vcic@vet.upenn.edu or 215-573-0302

Thank you for posting this very important study. I wonder if the Mods would consider making this a sticky in the cancer forum so that when new members join after a hemangio diagnosis we can easily find this information and refer them to it.

Thanks for posting that, Sharon. I hope to never participate in the study, but it's good to know just in case.

I believe this link talks about the past and current study you mentioned. I could not find any details from your FB link?

Yes, it was a bit light on details. They might prefer people call the number listed?
