From April 2009 to April 2012 we offered owners of cases of FCGS the option of being included in a research project being run by the Comparative Molecular Medicine & Therapeutics Group at Glasgow University Veterinary School under the direction of Professor David Bennett.
We needed 25 cases over two years. These cases will be run clinically by us in the normal manner including elective extractions and interferon therapy where indicated. The advantage to the owners is that all lab work will be performed free of charge. This includes virus isolation and serology, virus and bacterial DNA determination, bacterial culture (including anaerobes), blood biochemistry and hematology and histopathology of tissue. This large research project will also include 180 questionnaires from owners across the UK. Hopefully this detailed project will advance our knowledge on what causes this frustrating condition and help with prevention and treatment.
