I just wanted to let everyone know that there is a new study
sponsored by Canine Health Foundation going on at University of Utah.

According to their website, "Wayne Potts Laboratory has been funded
by the Canine Health Foundation to study the relationship between
major histocompatability alleles and the following auto-immune
diseases in canines: immune mediated hemolytic anemia, diabetes and
immune mediated thyroiditisis. We are currently seeking candidate animals for participation in this study. If your dog is purebred and has any of the aforementioned diseases it may qualify for this study."

Their study is designed to study DNA to allow "(1) development of diagnostic tests for identifying individuals at risk for prophylactic therapy and research and (2) reducing the incidence of the disease by reducing the breeding of individuals carrying the predisposing histocompatibility alleles"

They are looking for participants!!!

Here is the link to their website: http://stormy.biology.utah.edu/lab/canine.html
