Horses with insect bite hypersensitivity
Our dermatology team is looking for horses with insect bite hypersensitivity (IBH) to participate in a clinical trial. Horses of any breed that have seasonal symptoms of IBH (pruritus, papules, crusts) for two consecutive insect seasons may be enrolled. The purpose of the study is to determine the molecular profile of involved cytokine and chemokine pathways for equine IBH, in an effort to identify new ways to help treat this condition. Costs pertaining to the visit/recheck, the collection of the skin biopsies and subsequent analysis are paid for by the study. Please call 706-296-7818 for further details or email Dr Banovic at email@example.com. (Learn more)
