AbstractFull Text

The present study was done to evaluate the role of serum muscular enzymes in the determination of the workload in healthy horses, and diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis (ER) cases. Twenty-one draft horses were assessed under the field conditions during rice seedling seasons. Animals were under complete...

Abstract

Background: Exertional rhabdomyolysis syndrome is recognised in many athletic horse breeds and in recent years specific forms of the syndrome have been identified. However, although Standardbred horses are used worldwide for racing, there is a paucity of information about the epidemiological and...

Abstract

Equine exertional rhabdomyolysis (ER) is a well-recognized clinical syndrome affecting racehorses. Prevalence analysis of ER showed that female sex was a significant risk factor. The aim of this research was to evaluate the differences and correlations in the serum activity of muscle enzymes and...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: A glycogen synthase (GYS1) mutation has been described in horses with histopathological evidence of polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM) in the USA. It is unknown whether the same mutation is present in horses from the UK. Objectives: To determine whether the GYS1...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Although exertional rhabdomyolysis (ER) is common in Arabian horses, there are no dedicated studies describing histopathological characteristics of muscle from Arabian horses with ER. Objectives: To prospectively identify distinctive histopathological features of...

Abstract

Data on the feeding and management of racehorses and the prevalence of trainer-identified recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER) were collected via a cross-sectional face-to-face survey of 100 registered Thoroughbred and Standardbred trainers (n=1,771 horses). Data were collected on the number...

Abstract

Background: Exertional myopathies with rhabdomyolysis (ER) is a syndrome that damages the muscle tissue in horses and can be a devastating problem among working equidae. Beyond a highly probable hereditary factor, there does not seem to be a single cause that triggers ER in horses. Among these...

Abstract

Background: Sarcolipin (SLN), myoregulin (MRLN), and dwarf open reading frame (DWORF) are transmembrane regulators of the sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium transporting ATPase (SERCA) that we hypothesized played a role in recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER). Objectives: Compare coding sequences...

Abstract

Some unfortunate horses develop stiffness, painful muscle contractures, profuse sweating, and elevated respiratory rates during or following exercise. The term "tying-up" is used to describe horses with these clinical signs. In severe cases, horses may be unable to move their hindquarters after...
