Richland, WA, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vivos Inc (OTC PINK: RDGL) first therapy to canine treat soft tissue sarcoma is successful
Vivos Inc, a pharmaceutical company in the process of researching and developing minimally invasive treatments to combat cancer in humans and animals, is pleased to report several significant
outcomes after its signature product, IsoPet®, was used to treat a hind-leg soft-tissue sarcoma in a Sheltie at the University of Missouri Veterinary Health Center in Columbia,
Veterinary oncologist, Dr. Charles Maitz, reported that the treatment of the sarcoma resulted in a “complete response,” meaning tumor destruction and disappearance, together with a healthy
recovery. Results will be presented in at the Veterinary Cancer Society’s annual conference in Louisville, Kentucky, October 17 – 20, 2018.
After therapy the pet owner commented that the dog had more energy than she can remember for a long time. “The owner is delighted!” said Dr. Maitz.
Study investigators were also pleased that IsoPet® met all RadioGel™ design performance criteria. Post-treatment imaging and dosimetry provided confirmatory data
addressing the principal questions previously raised by an FDA review panel, including:
Near-uniform placement by injection and interstitial perfusion within the tumor without vascular clearance to normal organs and tissues
Very high therapeutic ratios (radiation dose to the tumor relative to normal organs)
Effective, highly localized, high-dose radiotherapy, and complete absence of adverse side-effects in critical normal tissues
The University of Missouri is now advertising availability of IsoPet® treatment for dogs and other species, including treatment of equine (horse) sarcoids.
Dr. Mike Korenko, Vivos Inc CEO stated “The successful treatment of the cat and dog subjects thus far increases the likelihood of IsoPet® becoming a practical solution in the
treatment of animal cancer. Additionally, the data obtained at the University of Missouri will support the pre-clinical investigations required by the FDA to provide evidence that
RadioGel™ can be safe and effective for treating various human cancers.”
