Clinical trials provide an opportunity for pet owners to seek advanced veterinary care when standard therapies are either ineffective or inaccessible. The cost of care is often subsidized and both pets and their owners are well supported. Owners will enroll their pets in clinical trials for several reasons including the desire to offer treatment when other options are not affordable or possible, the desire to contribute to the greater good, and the desire to provide a novel and promising therapy to their pet. Connecting the appropriate trial patient with a trial suited to that cancer and presentation can be challenging. This talk will review clinical trial design, important aspects of trials, responsibilities of the owner and veterinary care team, a sampling of current trials across the country, and ways to find these trials through a central, searchable, online database.


Learning Objectives:
• Understand the different phases of clinical trials for anticancer therapy development
• Understand how trial design can affect interpretation of results
• Be familiar with web-based resources to find clinical trials for animals with cancer, and how to participate in trials and their promotion.
