clinical trials

With help from pet participants, clinical trials help doctors in the medical and veterinary fields discover disease prevention methods and find new ways to improve detection, diagnosis, ​and treatment of animal illnesses, all while enhancing the quality of care each patient receives.

Select a clinical trial to learn more about specific research goals and to understand what is in store for you and your pet if you choose to participate. All animal participants receive compassionate care throughout their treatment period.

Business Wire: Calviri Completes Enrollment of 800 Dogs in a Preventative Cancer Vaccine Trial

The double-blinded trial is testing Calviri’s vaccine aimed at broadly preventing cancers in dogs. It is being conducted at three leading canine oncology centers – the Flint Animal Cancer Center at CSU, the School of Veterinary Medicine at University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

University of Colorado Cancer Center: Growing Evidence Shows Increasing Overlaps Between Human and Companion Animal Cancer Research

This trial is one of many examples of not just the collaboration and partnership between CU Cancer Center members around the state, but the overlaps between humans and companion animals, or non-working animals, and the growing body of research showing how one can inform the other.

Your healthy dog can help vets understand how dogs breathe in emergencies

The Arterial Blood Gas at Altitude Study at the Colorado State University James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital is looking for healthy dogs, especially brachycephalic (short-muzzled, flat-faced) breeds⁠ — English bulldogs, French bulldogs, and pugs ⁠— to participate in this research that will show veterinarians if dogs breathe differently in high altitude environments.

Clinical trials benefit animals and humans

May 20 is international Clinical Trials Day. At Colorado State University, researchers conduct hundreds of clinical trials that yield important insights for human and animal health.
