Novel Chemotherapy for Canine Multiple Myeloma

Although canine multiple myeloma initially responds to chemotherapy, virtually all patients will eventually relapse, and novel treatments are needed. This study is evaluating a novel chemotherapy drug for the treatment of multiple myeloma in dogs. Previously untreated dogs, or dogs having failed other forms of therapy are eligible. The study is funded by a biopharmaceutical company that wishes to remain anonymous for proprietary reasons.

Study Design:
Prospective trial

Sample Size:
6 (3 have been enrolled to date)

Inclusion criteria:
Dogs must have confirmed multiple myeloma, and must be treated either at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO or at University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI.

Exclusion Criteria:
Dogs must be free of severe intercurrent disease, and must have adequate renal, hepatic and hematologic function. A 3-week washout is necessary following any previous chemotherapy.

Study Controls:
Not applicable

Costs/Reimbursements:
All costs associated with the study (initial staging, treatment, monitoring, management of adverse events) are paid by the Sponsor. In addition, owners will receive $1,000 in hospital credit that can be put toward additional therapy at the time of treatment failure.
