The ANTAGENE Laboratory, in collaboration with the CNRS Canine Genetics Team, has agreed to partner with the BMDCGS to offer a clinic for the Histiocytic Sarcoma Risk Test* at the BMDCGS OCTOBERNERFEST.  Normal price per dog is $130 but the clinic price is $104, 20% less AND the Club pays for shipping!

*For over eight years, the Canine Genetics team of the CNRS in Rennes (France) and their international collaborators have been conducting genetic studies on Histiocytic Sarcoma in the Bernese Mountain Dog. These studies allowed them to locate regions of the genome implicated in this disease. The analysis of a large number of samples (more than 2000 Bernese Mountain Dogs) from affected dogs as well as old healthy dogs has enabled researchers to identify genetic markers associated with risk of developing and transmitting this cancer. Studies continue to investigate these genomic regions.

Statistical analysis of these genetic markers has been used to produce a genetic index. This index can help breeders in the selection of breeding stock and matings. It is not, however, a prediction of the occurrence of the disease. This test is only a probability test, based on information from a population of 2,000 French Bernese Mountain Dogs and validated on European and American populations. 

The test for Histiocytic Sarcoma is not an endpoint but a continuation of the research on Histiocytic Sarcoma. The test will be optimized and refined with advanced research. For this your participation is essential. Learn more about the ongoing HistioSarcoma research at Berner-IWG. (http://berner-iwg.cloudaccess.net/health-links.html) NOTE: DNA extracted from your dog's sample may be used for research in canine genetics.

NOTE: If your dog has either been diagnosed with histiocytic sarcoma** or over 10 years of age, s/he may qualify for a free research sample; a limited number are available. It takes about a week to be confirmed by the researchers that your dog has been accepted.  Visit the below link to apply. **If your dog is affected, please provide diagnostic notes or pathology results from your vet.
