Miracle Dog Cured Of Cancer With New Drug
In what can only be described as exciting news for dog owners, it sounds like there is a potential cancer cure drug on the way.
Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic used the drug nitrosylcobalamin (NO-Cbl) to successfully treat a fast-moving cancer in a 10-year-old Bichon Frise named Oscar
As reported in the examiner online.
Oscar the miracle dog had already been treated with radiation and chemotherapy without success. The aggressive cancer had already taken his ability to walk and was expected to claim Oscar’s life in a matter of only another few weeks.
Within two weeks of being treated with nitrosylcobalamin the cancer had improved and Oscar was able to walk again. The drug showed no signs of negative side effects.
A similar story occurred for two other dogs treated with nitrosylcobalamin. More dogs are currently being treated and the Center for Hematology & Oncology Molecular Therapeutics at the Cleveland Clinic are aiming to treat 10 dogs before going to the FDA for approval to treat humans.
Because dogs and humans have some genetic similarities the clinic hopes FDA approval will come swiftly. It is 60 years since people started working on a vitamin B12 cancer cure. The NO-Cblis made from nitric oxide has been known to contain a cancer killing substance attached to vitamin B12 for some time.
If the rest of the trials are successful then we could be witnesses to one of the greatest medical advances in many years for both man and dog.
