Longitudinal Study Investigating the Progression and Pathogenesis of Atypical Hyperadrenocorticism in Scottish Terriers

Study Progress Update

Our study into the genetic basis of atypical Cushing’s disease in Scotties has now reached the goal for blood sample collection. Over the next several months, we will be moving on to the analysis phase. It has been a privilege to work with owners and veterinarians from all over the country, and indeed from several foreign countries, to make this collection a success. Thank you to all those who participated.
