Equine chronic lung diseases:  IAD and Heaves.

Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) and heaves are the most common equine chronic respiratory diseases.   While it has been known for thousand of years that horses develop inflammation of their airways, our understanding of the process leading to these diseases remains incomplete.  In this presentation, new findings pertinent to the diagnosis, control and treatment of airway inflammation will be presented.  Dr Couëtil will discuss criteria to be used for the diagnosis of IAD.  Dr Lavoie will describe new findings pertinent to the treatment of heaves.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) was initially described for the treatment of human
decompression sickness (“the bends”) following underwater diving accidents. More recently it
has found use in the treatment of bone and joint infections, particularly in those cases when
oxygenation of the tissue is impaired. Today HBOT is considered to be a supportive or
adjunctive treatment for a variety of conditions in the horse. This seminar will discuss some of
those approaches and future directions for equine HBOT.

Laminitis.

Dr. Jim Belknap, a laminitis researcher and surgeon at Ohio State University, will first cover the latest discoveries of the pathophysiology of laminitis; there have been several reports in the last few years which have greatly impacted our understanding and treatment of this devastating disease process. Dr. Belknap will relate these recent findings to the current medical treatment options for both the horse at risk of laminitis, and the horse in the acute stages of the disease process. Finally, Dr. Belknap will cover the diagnostic workup of the laminitis case. Dr. Jorge Gomez, a surgeon and lameness expert at Hagyard Equine Medical institute in Lexington, KY, will then cover the shoeing options for the acute and chronic cases of laminitis. Both Drs. Belknap and Gomez will answer questions at the end of the session.

Equine Influenza Update.

Equine influenza remains one of the leading causes of acute respiratory disease affecting the
horse’s ability to work or perform. The combination of improved vaccines, rapid diagnostics,
appropriate treatment, and effective quarantine measures should nearly always limit the severity
and spread of disease; but deficiencies in one or more of these factors are common. Dr. Thomas
Chambers will review the current status of the international surveillance system for equine
influenza. Dr. David Horohov will describe vaccines currently available. Dr. Tracy Sturgill will
discuss in detail a recent outbreak in order to illustrate how the four factors of vaccines,
diagnostics, treatment, and quarantine come into play..

Repair of Articular Cartilage Lesions.

Articular cartilage injuries, both acquired and developmental, are a major cause of unsoundness.  Joint surface defects and resulting osteoarthritis limit the athletic careers of many horses.  A continuing clinical and research challenge is the limited intrinsic ability of articular cartilage lesions to heal.  An overview of surgical treatment strategies will be presented including debridement and microfracture, chondrocyte implantation, and osteochondral grafts.  Current research efforts will be discussed that are designed to better understand the molecular and cellular events that occur during repair of articular cartilage lesions, along with studies to improve the safety of intra-articular medications.

Chromosome abnormalities as a cause of infertility.

In humans, about 0.7% of live births, 10% of stillbirths and neonatal deaths have a chromosome abnormality.  In horses, the prevalence of chromosome abnormalities in the overall population is unknown.  However, it is well known that chromosome abnormalities can be a cause of infertility in mares with very small ovaries, abnormal reproductive tracts, and irregular or absent estrous cycles.  Equine Turner Syndrome and the Sex Reversal Syndromes are the most common causes of infertility in these mares. 

In contrast, mares with normal reproductive tracts and regular estrous cycles that experience early embryonic loss may be overlooked for potential chromosome abnormalities.  While only a few chromosome translocations associated with early embryonic loss in mares have been described in the literature, three new chromosome translocations have been identified recently.  Thus, translocations may be more common in these mares than previously thought. 

Clinical phenotypes, sample collection, chromosome analyses techniques, and chromosome abnormalities affecting reproduction in mares will be reviewed.  Clinical cases of equine Turner Syndrome, the Sex Reversal Syndromes, and chromosome translocations will be presented.

Fescue Toxicosis.

Tall fescue covers more acres than any other cool season grass in the Southeastern USA. In Kentucky alone it is found on more than 5 million acres and the majority is infected with a fungal endophyte.   Fescue toxicosis is a serious clinical disorder in late gestation horses and is characterized in the most severe cases by poor pregnancy outcome (prolonged gestation, agalactia, thickened placentas, dysmature foals), and, in extreme cases, foal and mare mortality.  This seminar will discuss the clinical signs associated with infected fescue when it is fed to different classes of horses.  The prevalence of infected tall fescue on horse pastures in the Central Bluegrass region will also be described.  More specifically, the seasonality of ergot alkaloid production and how to manage existing pastures that contain fescue will be explained.  Options for the removal of tall fescue and current development of "safe" fescue for horse pastures will also be presented.  Lastly, some of the mechanism involved in fescue toxicosis and new data on the effects of exposure to endophyte infected tall fescue on fertility and changes in inflammatory cytokines during early pregnancy will be discussed.

Equine Viral Arteritis:  Historical and Contemporary Significance.

The occurrence of equine viral arteritis (EVA) in Thoroughbreds in Kentucky in 1984 radically changed the perceived importance of the disease among many in the horse industry.  That event and more recent outbreaks of EVA will be reviewed in the context of the distribution and circulation of the causal virus in breeding and performance horse populations.  Special attention will be paid to those factors majorly instrumental in dissemination of equine arteritis virus, especially with respect to the 2006 multi-state occurrence of the disease.

Aspects of the molecular epidemiology, diagnosis and current prevention and control strategies for EVA will be reviewed in detail.  Special emphasis will be placed on recent advances in our understanding of the extent and significance of genetic and phenotypic diversity among strains of equine arteritis virus, the development of improved diagnostic methods and, finally, consideration of how best to effectively prevent and control this disease.

Leptospirosis: Diagnostic and Vaccination Challenges.

Recent increases in equine leptospirosis, possibly related to higher than normal rainfall in the Bluegrass have recently been reported by the LDDC. The infection can result in recurrent uveitis (sometimes referred to as "moon blindness"), late abortion, azotemia, and hepatobiliary disease. Leptospira are adept at evading the immune response, thus complicating both diagnostic and prevention efforts. This week’s presentations will focus on various aspects of the diagnosis and pathology of Leptospira in the horse.
