+Lymphosarcoma - Half Body Irradiation 

This is a very serious and common cancer from which dogs can suffer.  It is very similar to non-Hodgkin lymphoma in humans.  The response to chemotherapy in dogs can be dramatic and while the long term survival from this disease in humans is quite good nowadays, dogs nearly always relapse within 12 months.  With our clinical trial we have found that by adding Half Body Irradiation dogs can also have long-term survival.
