Novel Efficacy Trial in Canine Lymphoma with Autologous Cancer Vaccines

Lymphoma is a very common and often an aggressive cancer in dogs. Immunotherapy is a new form of cancer treatment, aiming to target the cancer with the body’s own immune system. We have developed a treatment vaccine for lymphoma using an animal’s own cancer protein. Results of our safety clinical trial showed that the vaccines are safe, and anti-cancer effects are seen in some dogs with lymphoma. Who is eligible? • Dogs diagnosed with multi-centric lymphoma without [...]

Efficacy trial in autologous cancer vaccine for dogs diagnosed with lymphoma treated with chemotherapy or palliative care

Introduction: Lymphoma is a very common and often an aggressive cancer in dogs. Chemotherapy improves quality of life and extends lifespan of diagnosed dogs, but most dogs eventually die from their diseases. Immunotherapy is a new form of cancer treatment, aiming to target the cancer with the body’s own immune system. We have developed a treatment vaccine for lymphoma (NOT for cancer prevention), using an animal’s own cancer protein. Results of a safety clinical trial showed that the vaccines [...]

Leptospirosis update 25/08/2020

Attention dog owners! There has been another confirmed case of Leptospirosis earlier this month  in a dog that lived in Crows Nest.  The dog was not vaccinated against Leptospirosis and sadly had to be euthanised due to kidney failure. We were unable to identify the causative strain (serovar) in this dog as the dog died so quickly that it did not have time to  develop an antibody response. The previously reported strain (serovar) known as Copenhageni was identified as [...]

The dog has been treated at UVTHS this week and fortunately appears to be recovering.  Preliminary results show that the previously reported strain (serovar) known as Copenhageni has been the cause in both this dog and another reported dog from Newtown last week, however further [...]

Leptospirosis update 06/08/2020

Sadly, there has been another confirmed case of Leptospirosis this week in a dog living in Newtown.  The dog was not vaccinated against Leptospirosis and sadly had to be euthanised due to severe kidney failure. We are currently still investigating which strain (serovar) has been the cause. This is the first case of Leptospirosis this year and the first case reported in Newtown. Last year we saw 8 cases from May to November and these were from Surry Hills, [...]

The total case number is now 11 with 8 cases diagnosed since May 2019.  All dogs were from Surry Hills, Darlinghurst , Redfern and Glebe and all died or were euthanised. It is important to note that the recent weather (warm with heavy rainfall) may result in conditions conducive to another increase in case numbers. Therefore, please remain vigilant! We again want to emphasize the importance of considering [...]

Case Study – Ruggles, Newfoundland

Ruggles is a long time patient of Sydney Uni Vet and was visiting the practice due to a heart condition he had. He had an irregular heartbeat (so-called atrial fibrillation) which caused him to feel unwell (poor appetite, weight loss, poor exercise tolerance). This condition was treatable however the practice did not have the defibrillator required to treat Ruggles. Ruggles ‘Dad’, a longtime client and supporter of the practice kindly offered to make a donation to cover part of [...]
