Nerve Growth Factor as a biomarker for pain and inflammation

Horse face

To get the best possible treatment results in sport horses with joint inflammation (osteoarthritis), there is a need to be able to detect, diagnose and treat affected horses at an early stage. However, the symptoms can be difficult to detect as the pain at first is often low-grade and progresses for several weeks to several months.

The project is a collaboration between SLU och Sahlgrenska University Hospital. For more information, please contact Anna Kendall,
