Hip dysplasia is a common problem in people and dogs. Precision medicine research at the University of Missouri could help prevent the condition from turning into painful hip arthritis.
MU researchers have developed a test to screen for hip dysplasia — a joint disorder in which the hip socket doesn’t fully cover the ball of the upper thigh bone — by measuring protein biomarkers in blood and urine. The researchers have shown these biomarkers can provide an early diagnosis of hip dysplasia in puppies. Now they are studying whether biomarkers can screen for hip dysplasia in young people, too.
