The current project has a basic science and a clinical relevance part. The main project aim is to describe the blood supply to the growth cartilage of the small tarsal bones in young Icelandic Horses. Similar studies of the blood supply to long bones that ossify from three separate centers have yielded entirely new information confirming that osteochondrosis, which can lead to fragments in joints (osteochondrosis dissecans) is the result of focal failure of this blood supply. It is not known whether the blood supply to the small tarsal bones, which ossify from a single center, is organized in the same way. The relationship between blood supply and wedge-shaped bones that cause sickle hocks will be investigated. The relationship between blood supply and developmental, heritably predisposed joint inflammation/osteoarthritis or spavin, which is common in Icelandic horses, will be examined. This will yield valuable information that potentially is relevant to osteoarthritis in general.

Prosjektet det søkes om har en grunnforskningsdel og en klinisk relevansdel. Hovedmål for prosjektet er å beskrive blodtilførselen til vekstbrusken i de små haseknoklene hos unge Islandshester. Lignende studier av blodtilførselen til de lange knoklene som forbeines fra tre sentre har gitt et fullstendig nytt svar på at osteochondrose, som kan gi løse biter i ledd (osteochondrosis dissecans) oppstår når en liten del av denne blodtilførselen svikter. Det er ikke kjent om
blodtilførselen til de små haseknoklene, som forbeines fra ett enkelt senter, er organisert på samme måte. I relevansdelen vil man undersøke forholdet mellom blodtilførselen og feilvokste, kileformede knokler som gir sigdhaser. Man vil også se på forholdet mellom blodtilførsel og utviklingsmessig, arvelig predisponert leddbetennelse/osteoarthritt eller spatt, som er svært vanlig hos Islandshest. Dette kan gi verdifull informasjon som potensielt også er relevant for leddbetennelse generelt.

Resistance to anthelmintic drugs is a threat to equine welfare. Like antibiotics, is restrictive use of anthelmintics necessary to retain their effectivity. Thus, targeted selective treatment, based on individual deworming, was introduced a decade ago. However, we have shown that the prevalence of, …

Jordartsanpassad strukturkalkning för effektivare fosforretention

Projektnummer: O-18-23-160 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2018


The purpose of this project is to define the amount of slaked lime needed for a given clay soil. We hypothesise that the amount of slaked lime needed for minimal phophorus loss is dependent on the clay content of the soil. The study will be conducted in a field with a drainage system and measuring …
