Journey Posted December 29, 2020 Report Share Posted December 29, 2020 Evidently there is new research beginning to locate the mutation for PRA. Odd though as I only know of a few dogs with actual PRA. With this being done through Wisdom I do have my doubts though, many of them... The former president of OptiGen (now owned by Wisdom) is leading this. Wasn't it Greg Acklund who wrote the paper saying there was no PRA in the breed? I can't locate anything else regarding this research though.. "If you have a Border Collie that has been diagnosed with PRA by a board-certified ophthalmologist and you would like to assist in the PRA research by submitting a sample, please send an email to: Susan.Pearce-Kelling@effem.com . Sue PK, formerly the president of OptiGen, one of the first DNA testing laboratories for inherited diseases in dogs, will follow up with you and provide the research form and instructions on submitting the sample."
