Request for Research Samples from Miniature* or Toy* Poodles diagnosed with Inherited Cataracts
or Optic Nerve Hypoplasia or Micropapilla - December 19, 2013

The Poodle Club of America Foundation, Inc. is supporting research aimed at identifying the molecular causes of Optic Nerve Hypoplasia & Micropapilla and Inherited Cataracts in miniature and toy poodles.  OptiGen in collaboration with the research laboratory of Dr. Gustavo Aguirre at the University of Pennsylvania is collecting samples and clinical data on these diseases with the goal of developing diagnostic DNA tests for the conditions.  Research samples from affected dogs are needed for this study.  More complete information on the studies as well as research sample submission forms may be found at Optic Nerve Hypoplasia & Micropapilla and Inherited Cataracts.

* Please note we have focused this study in Miniature and Toy Poodles because it is in these varieties that Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, Micropapilla or Inherited Cataracts are more frequently found. However, if there are Standard Poodles diagnosed with Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, Micropapilla or Inherited Cataracts, we would be delighted to include samples from them as well for the research work.
