Kentucky Racing Commission Funding Two-Year Research Project On Inflammatory Biomarkers

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission recently voted unanimously to fund a project at the University of Kentucky Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center examining inflammatory and anti-inflammatory markers as early indicators for potential catastrophic (life-ending) injury in racehorses. The occurrence of injuries in horses and jockeys during training and racing is a significant economic and welfare concern […]

Study Of Inflammatory Markers Leaves Researchers With More Questions About Predicting Racehorse Injury

For years now, researchers have been searching for some kind of agent detectable in horses’ blood to warn them of an impending injury. Research presented by Dr. David Horohov of the Gluck Equine Research Center at the University of Kentucky at a recent Kentucky Equine Drug Research Council meeting shows the quest has continued to […]

Inflammatory Biomarkers: A Horse’s Early Warning System?

Veterinarians have long been searching for some sort of advance warning that a horse may be on the brink of suffering a serious bone or soft tissue injury. Recent research into biomarkers may provide practitioners with more tools to anticipate problems or a better understanding of a horse’s discomfort after it has begun. According to […]

New Information About Biomarker Could Aid Lameness Diagnosis

A study released last week in the open-access journal Plos One uncovers new information about how biomarkers in blood can signal different types of injuries in racehorses. Researchers at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences investigated serum amyloid A (SAA), which is a biomarker known to be released in the equine bloodstream as a result of inflammation in […]
