Dog's Cancer Fight Could Help Humans With Brain Tumors

Posted: Updated:

A pit bull terrier named "Petey" may have something to teach us about brain cancer.

He's the first dog in the country to undergo an experimental treatment for brain tumors.

Five dogs had this treatment. Two, including Petey, are doing well.

If the researchers can duplicate Petey's results, they will ask the FDA for permission to begin clinical trials to test it in people with brain cancer.

FOX's Beth Galvin reports in the video above on why his breakthrough has doctors so excited.
