horse with DSLD

Equine Degenerative Disorder Research Project

Equine degenerative suspensory ligament desmitis (DSLD) is a debilitating ligament and tendon disorder of horses. It is a source of chronic lameness and pain without a cure, and of great distress to horse owners and horse lovers. Available diagnostic tools are inadequate and our knowledge about the cause(s) is incomplete. This project aims to refine the accuracy of a new diagnostic method for DSLD – through the identification and measurement of specific proteins.
