Scottie Samples Needed

Scottie Samples Needed for Atypical Cushings Study

Dr. Kurt Zimmerman is almost at the finish line in his epic, 9-year study of atypical Cushings in our breed!  He has identified 3 genes that are expressed in a uniquely different manner in our Scotties.

What he now needs to complete the last phase of the DNA analysis are blood samples from at least 100 Scotties with normal ALP and 100 with increased values.

Follow this link to the details.
