The Irish Wolfhound Foundation

Blood Collection for Research - The Irish Wolfhound DNA Bank

Study End Date: Ongoing
Enrollment Status: OPEN to new enrollment
Lead Researcher(s): Margret Casal, Dr med vet, PhD

The Irish Wolfhound Foundation is building a bank of Irish Wolfhound DNA for current and future research purposes.

The IWF started banking blood from all Irish Wolfhounds enrolled in the Lifetime Cardiac Study and has continued to collect blood samples in conjunction with other studies.

In addition, Irish Wolfhounds diagnosed with osteosarcoma, or wolfhounds eight years of age and older with no history of any cancer, are also requested to donate blood for osteosarcoma research.  Blood samples will be collected at many of the upcoming specialties where IWF-sponsored cardiac testing is offered, or can be donated at any time using the forms provided at left (under Related Documents).
