Dr. Garden's laboratory is currently developing a novel therapeutic for the treatment of Myasthenia Gravis in companion animals. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of a new treatment, the first step is to develop a reliable way to evaluate the severity of disease in each patient so that response to therapy can be measured.
Penn Vet is seeking dogs with myasthenia gravis for a blood collection study. The goal is to identify a bio-marker in patients with this disease that can be measured over time.
Eligible dogs will receive a neurological examination at the first visit, an acetylcholine receptor antibody titer, and a $50 gift card for participation. Participation in this study will contribute to research that has the potential to improve methods of diagnosis and prognosis of Myasthenia Gravis in veterinary patients.
