Immunotherapy has tremendous potential for treatment of cancer in dogs. Clinical trials of antibody therapeutics in human oncology have demonstrated remarkable results in inducing tumor regressions and cures against a variety of cancer types.

This presentation will focus on the current status and research in the area of cancer immunotherapy for dogs. Discussion will include:

  • Major immune targets for new cancer immunotherapies

  • Strategies for generating effective cancer immunity

  • How we can repurpose existing drugs as cancer immunotherapies

  • Updates on recent cancer immunotherapy trials
