Autologous Activated T cell Therapy for Osteosarcoma of Companion Dogs

Canine osteosarcoma (OSA) is an aggressively metastatic primary bone malignancy with frequent chemotherapy failure. We hypothesized that dogs with OSA would be safely treated with autologous vaccination, adoptive T cell transfer (ACT) of ex vivo-activated T cells and low dose human interleukin-2 (IL-2) resulting in improved survival compared to carboplatin.
