Barbaro Injury Highlights Need for Laminitis Research Funding

Ten million dollars in equine research funding is needed to unlock the

mysteries of the devastating equine disease known as laminitis, the American

Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation, Inc., said today.

The life-threatening injury to Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro and the

subsequent development of laminitis in the horse's left hind foot has

highlighted the prevalence and severity of the disease, which affects horses

around the globe.

Members of the AAEP have identified laminitis as a disease with a high

priority for future equine research. To advance this effort, the AAEP

Foundation has developed an informative paper on the challenges of solving

the laminitis puzzle and the need for increased research funding. Rustin M.

Moore, DVM, a member of the AAEP and the director of the Louisiana State

University Equine Health Studies Program, is the author.

The paper "Barbaro Injury Highlights Need for Laminitis Research Funding"

can be viewed at http://www.aaep.org/laminitisresearchfunding and is available for

reprint. To learn more about laminitis, funding opportunities or current

research, contact Keith Kleine, AAEP director of industry relations, at

kkleine@aaep.org or (859) 233-0147.

The AAEP Foundation, Inc., a 501(c) 3 organization, was created in 1994 as

the charitable arm of the American Association of Equine Practitioners

(AAEP), the world's largest professional association of equine

veterinarians. The AAEP Foundation's mission is to improve the health and

welfare of the horse through support of research, education, benevolence and

the equine community.
