aht.org.uk logo Bearing the load: Understanding the genetic contribution to fracture risk in horses. 17/07/2019
19.00pm
Animal Health Trust Equine Referral Clinic Free CPD Evening for Vets! Refreshments from 7pm Seminar from 7.30pm Speaker: Debbie Guest Catastrophic fracture from bone overloading is the number one reason for horses to be euthanised during racing. Many environmental factors influencing fracture risk have been identified, but despite changes to race conditions, the number of fatal fractures occurring on UK racecourses remains at around 60 horses per year. Previous work at the Animal Health Trust identified that there is a genetic contribution to fracture risk in Thoroughbred horses. The development of a DNA test to identify horses that are at high risk of fracture would allow those animals to have their training and management regimes closely monitored and enable the targeted use of diagnostic imaging techniques to monitor horses for pre-fracture changes. We are using novel techniques to create a laboratory tool to understand the biological mechanisms that are affected in high risk horses. This will allow us to define the most appropriate management regimes for high risk horses and may, in the future, lead to the development of novel pharmacological interventions to reduce the risk of fracture in genetically susceptible horses.
