Testing the Effectiveness of a Melanoma Vaccine in Horses

The goal of this project is to demonstrate whether a vaccine currently used to treat melanomas in dogs is safe and effective for treating melanomas in horses. Melanomas are among the most common tumors in horses; they occur in all breeds and colors of horses and are especially common in grey horses. This therapy has the potential to not only treat but also to prevent the development of equine melanomas.
