Brown DC, Agnello K (2013) Intrathecal substance p-saporin in the dog: efficacy in bone cancer pain. Anesthesiology 119(5):1178-1185. doi: 10.1097/ALN.0b013e3182a95188
Summary: This work demonstrates the use of naturally occurring bone cancer in dogs as a model for pain therapy. Companion dogs with bone cancer received 20-60 μg intrathecal injections of SP-SAP (currently in human clinical trials) depending on the size of the dog. Significantly more dogs in the control group required unblinding and adjustment of pain care than in the SP-SAP group, indicating the efficacy of SP-SAP in pain control. This study also demonstrates the validity of the dog model for testing analgesic protocols.
