Clinical Trials?

We have a 12-year-old Italian Greyhound with a medium-sized lipoma on her chest and a very large one on her left side on her ribs; the large one seems to be impeding rotation movement of her shoulder when she walks. I'm interested in information on any clinical trials that may take place in the New York City area.

Xiaflex has been tried and tested now for quite some time. I have found it impossible to obtain for my 11 year old chow mix except UK pharma online stores @ 650 pounds per dose. I have tried turmeric, colloidal silver, steroid injections and everything under the sun for 2 years without success. My Buddy dog is 60lbs and has a lipoma on his left front leg, the rear part at his shoulder blade, bigger than a softball. 6 months ago, I gave up on anymore remedies and he is just fine, lipoma is as big as it has always been but no bigger. The dog walks me silly, 1/2 mile before he thinks of a restroom stop and at least 2 miles a day. It seems that he has gotten used to it and is living with it, no pain or limping but no more running either. I'm tired...he's tired and lumpy and were no longer worried about it, so save your time and energy, I have hit all the brick walls. Until Xiaflex becomes obtainable, we all have to sit and wait...thanks to the mfg. :(

Is this not the drug manufacturer's site? Could someone please provide information on clinical trial enrollment and/or availability of the drug? Are there any compassionate use supplies available?

Any updates on clinical trials for Xiaflex? I live in NYC and have a dog with a large lipoma.

Does anyone have updates on the availability of participation in clinical trials? I live in the NYC area. My dog has a large and rapidly growing lipoma just below her neck and it seems to be causing her difficulty in certain positions. Our vet has been reluctant to treat it surgically,
