Osteopontin in healing wounds in horses and in human keloidsmembers
Convincing evidence shows that persistent or excessive expression of osteopontin (OPN) is linked to fibroproliferation of various organs in laboratory animals and in man, such that its downregulation is a logical therapeutic objective.
The objective of this recently online publised study was to investigate OPN expression in an equine model of wound healing and in clinical specimens of equine exuberant granulation tissue and human keloids in an effort to better understand the contribution of this protein to inflammation-associated skin fibrosis.

Histopathology of the intrinsic laryngeal musculature in horses with dynamic laryngeal collapsemembers
The pathogenesis of bilateral dynamic laryngeal collapse associated with poll flexion (DLC) of horses is unknown but might be associated with intrinsic laryngeal muscle weakness. The objectives of this case-control study were to investigate histopathological characteristics of the cricoarytenoideus dorsalis, the cricothyroid (CT) and the cricoarytenoideus lateralis muscles in DLC-affected horses and compare these with unaffected controls.

Laryngeal ultrasonography versus endoscopy in Warmblood horsesmembers
Recurrent laryngeal neuropathies are occasionally seen in horses and can be hard to diagnose. One of the diagnostic options besides intensive clincal examinations at rest and during exercise is endoscopy. Does the less invasive laryngeal sonography also lead to acceptable results?

Hydroxyethyl starch: A review members
Hydroxyethyl starch (HES) is used for different indications in intensive care units. This brandnew article aimed to review and summarize the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of hydroxyethyl starch (HES), as well as reported risks and benefits of HES infusion, and to provide administration and monitoring recommendations for HES use in dogs and cats.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid and Growth Performance and Losses of Pigletsmembers
Does supplementing the feed ration for lactating sows with the conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) have an influence on the growth performance and losses of piglets from birth to weaning? A very important question since this Supplementation is easy to perform. The monitoring comprised 20 litters in control and 20 litters in experimental group of Czech Large White × Czech Landrace hybrid combination sows.


Subclinical Endometritis and Consequences on Fertility in Cowsmembers
Subclinical endometritis (SEM) is poorly investigated in beef cows, as stated in the literature. This project aims to evaluate the rate and the consequences of SEM in Piedmontese cows, with a focus on bacteriological findings and fertility parameters. The results should be useful at least also in other beef cow breeds.

Pyothorax in dogs and cats - a reviewmembers
Pyothorax, also known as thoracic empyema, is characterized by the accumulation of septic purulent fluid within the pleural space. While the actual route of pleural infection often remains unknown, the oral cavity and upper respiratory tract appear to be the most common source of microorganisms causing pyothorax in dogs and cats. In human medicine, pyothorax is a common clinical entity associated with bacterial pneumonia and progressive parapneumonic effusion. This excellent update reviews the current literature in reference to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of pyothorax in dogs and cats.

Clinical characteristics of Scottie Crampmembers
Scottie cramp is a rare but impressive disease with spasticity of various degree and often triggered by stress, exercise etc. which might be underdiagnosed. This new study reports the clinical features, with response to therapy and long-term outcome of Scottie Cramp as described by owners. Very informative data!

Novel technique to repair rupture of the lateral glenohumeral ligament members
Ruptures of the lateral glenohumeral ligament are occasionally seen in dogs, and various surgical techniques are described for their correction. This retrospective study reports short and medium term outcomes, and complications, in dogs treated for rupture of the lateral glenohumeral ligament (LGHL) with a novel, arthroscopically assisted technique.
