Project b has been operating with the goal of developing a unique classification system for canine GD based on light, electron, and immunofluorescent microscopic imaging of the glomerular pathology. The outcome of this study has the potential to advance our understanding of GD in dogs to a new level, potentially opening many new options for improving our ability to diagnose and manage GD in dogs. The apparent association between GD and infectious diseases, such as borreliosis in selected areas… 

Tables from this paper

Epithelial mesenchymal transition in the progression of renal disease in dogs.
TLDR
Processes occurring in canine CKD share many similarities with its human counterpart, making the dog a good model in which to examine the mechanisms of TID progression.
Association of Veterinary Hematology and Transfusion Medicine (AVHTM) Transfusion Reaction Small Animal Consensus Statement (TRACS) Part 2: Prevention and monitoring.
TLDR
This systematic evidence evaluation process yielded recommended prevention and monitoring guidelines and a proposed transfusion administration form, but significant knowledge gaps were identified, demonstrating the need for additional research in veterinary transfusion medicine.
Use of clinical vignette questionnaires to investigate the variation in management of keratoconjunctivitis sicca and acute glaucoma in dogs
TLDR
Treatment of acute glaucoma diverged between groups: PGs were much more likely to recommend topical prostaglandin analogues and a wider array of both topical and systemic treatments were recommended by both groups, suggesting that treatments may vary substantially in ocular conditions.
(2018) Use of clinical vignette questionnaires to investigate the variation in management of keratoconjunctivitis sicca and acute glaucoma in dogs.
TLDR
Treatment of acute glaucoma diverged between groups: PGs were much more likely to recommend topical prostaglandin analogues (PGAs) and a wider array of both topical and systemic treatments were recommended by both groups, suggesting that treatments may vary substantially in ocular conditions.
Clinical Practice Guidelines: An Opinion of the Legal Implication to Veterinary Medicine
TLDR
The legal implications of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) in veterinary medicine for dogs and cats are discussed and how the law may treat them in the future are explored.

TLDR
Progression of glomerular disease was unpredictable, with no apparent correlation between survival time and biochemical parameters at presentation, and cases with amyloidosis were more likely to be azotemic at presentation.

TLDR
This commentary, developed by a panel of clinical experts convened by the National Kidney Foundation, attempts to put the KDIGO guideline for glomerulonephritis into the context of the US health care system and supports the vast majority of the recommendations.
Canine chronic renal disease: prevalence and types of glomerulonephritis in the dog.
TLDR
GN, with morphological types as found in humans, as a common cause of canine chronic renal disease, is identified in East Anglia and the West Midlands.

TLDR
There is no experimental model of LN to study predisposing factors, pathogenesis, onset, progression, treatment, or prevention, and there are no predictive tests to identify the few individuals at highest risk, therefore all seropositive dogs should be screened and monitored for proteinuria.
Comparison of signalment, clinicopathologic findings, histologic diagnosis, and prognosis in dogs with glomerular disease with or without nephrotic syndrome.
TLDR
Presence of Nephrotic syndrome is associated with poorer prognosis in dogs with nonazotemic glomerular disease and Preventing development of NS is warranted; however, specific interventions were not evaluated.
Management of chronic kidney disease
TLDR
Primary and secondary care need to set up a model of combined care for a large number of patients with varying degrees of chronic kidney disease, as increasing numbers of studies have shown that the presence of renal disease is common.

TLDR
The formal consensus methodology used by ASCO enabled development of guideline recommendations on a challenging clinical issue based on limited evidence using a rigorous, transparent, and explicit method.
Formal consensus: the development of a national clinical guideline.
TLDR
A method for guideline development which incorporates a consensus process devised to tackle the challenges of a variable research evidence base for the development of a national clinical guideline on risk assessment and prevention of pressure ulcers is outlined.
