PhD studentship – The role of the microbiome and circulating endothelial cells in CRGV

The Alabama Rot Research Fund (ARRF) is sponsoring in 2020 a three year PhD studentship – ‘The role of the microbiome and circulating endothelial cells in the pathobiology of cutaneous renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV)’.

‘Initial findings have shown that the gut microflora (bacterial/bug population) of dogs affected by CRGV differs significantly from healthy dogs’.

Alabama Rot confirmed in Radcliffe (Greater Manchester), West Chiltington (West Sussex), North Chailey (East Sussex) and Cullompton (Devon).

Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialist yesterday advised that:

“Unfortunately, we have to confirm another four cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (often termed CRGV or Alabama Rot). The cases* are from Radcliffe (Greater Manchester), West Chiltington (West Sussex), North Chailey (East Sussex) and Cullompton (Devon).

This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 102 since 2012 with 19 in 2017. Most confirmed cases have been seen between October and April so the hope would be that confirmed case numbers will now reduce. We would, however, continue to advise owners to be vigilant and to seek advice from their local vet if their dog develops unexplained skin lesions/sores.”

* AlabamaRot.co.uk list these cases and all others on our Alabama Rot Confirmed and All cases maps. As we get further information about the walks taken by these dogs and other information, we will update the maps.
