Potential Proteomic-Based Strategies for Understanding Laminitis: Predictions and Pathogenesis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With today's understanding of the genome, advanced molecular techniques, and our growing ability to analyze complex biologic data, proteomics, the broad-based study of the repertoire of proteins expressed by cells or organisms, offers great promise for understanding the causes of complex diseases. Identifying and measuring novel protein biomarkers present in blood that predict the onset and resolution of laminitis would both aid clinical management of at-risk equine patients and shed light on underlying mechanisms with the intent of developing novel preventive strategies and therapeutic approaches. Identifying alterations in the profiles of proteins present in tissues of horses that develop laminitis or within in vitro model systems also can advance our understanding of this puzzling disease.
