Shar-Pei dogs’ genetics tell us about inflammation
Share with others:
An international collaboration has revealed that one common genetic risk factor predisposes the Shar-Pei dog breed not only to recurrent fever, but also to a spectrum of persistent inflammatory signs that affect the skin, joints, ears and body as a whole. The study is published today in the open access journal PLOS One.
