Alabama Rot Research Fund (ARRF) are pleased to announce their joint funding with NFDOG, for an epidemiology project into cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV or Alabama Rot). This work will be carried out by Dr Kim Stevens. http://www.rvc.ac.uk/about/our-people/kim-stevens
Using data provided by Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists the research aims to:
1. Identify possible risk factors for CRGV including age, breed and sex whilst also assessing possible climatic risk factors
2. Investigate the spatial epidemiology of the disease to identify apparent clusters of cases in certain areas
3. Developing and launching a new questionnaire that will allow improved data collection
We would hope to be able to provide an update on the findings of this exciting research towards the end of this year.
