I don't know but I would assume adjuvant effects on mammalian physiology may be similar whether you are a dog, cat, human or hamster with regard to the underlying inflammation. The differences with rate of VAS of cat versus dog would indicate that while the mechanism of action is the same, the rate of tumor formation secondary to the inflammation is species specific. Luckily most of us humans do not get vaccinated as often. Makes you think though!
