Serum markers of lamellar basement membrane degradation and lamellar histopathological changes in horses affected with laminitis.

Abstract

In order better to evaluate the extent to which degradation of the lamellar basement membrane (LBM) by matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) occurs in equine laminitis, we determined the concentration of type IV collagen and laminin in normal and laminitic horses, using specific immunoassays. Blood samples were obtained from both the jugular and the cephalic… (More)
