BEVA primary care clinical guidelines: Diagnosis and management of equine pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (2023)
Journal Article
Menzies-Gow, N., Knowles, E., & Hart, N. (in press). BEVA primary care clinical guidelines: Diagnosis and management of equine pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction. Equine Veterinary Journal, https://doi.org/10.1111/evj.14009

Background: Pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID) is a prevalent, age-related chronic disorder in equids. Diagnosis of PPID can be challenging because of its broad spectrum of clinical presentations and disparate published diagnostic criteria,...

Factors associated with insulin responses to oral sugars in a mixed-breed cohort of ponies (2023)
Journal Article
Knowles, E., Harris, P., Elliott, J., Chang, Y., & Menzies-Gow, N. (2023). Factors associated with insulin responses to oral sugars in a mixed-breed cohort of ponies. Equine Veterinary Journal, https://doi.org/10.1111/evj.13983

Background: Serum insulin concentration at 60 min (InsulinT60) during an oral sugar test (OST) indicates future laminitis risk and insulin dysregulation (ID). Associations between InsulinT60 and physical and owner-reported variables may help clinicia...

Short Communication: Identification of equine corticotropin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP) binding to an adrenocortipcotrophic hormone (ACTH) assay capture antibody (2023)
Journal Article
Knowles, E., Hyde, C., Harris, P., Elliott, J., & Menzies-Gow, N. (2023). Short Communication: Identification of equine corticotropin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP) binding to an adrenocortipcotrophic hormone (ACTH) assay capture antibody. Domestic Animal Endocrinology, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.domaniend.2023.106785

A chemiluminescent immunoassay is commonly employed to measure adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) concentrations to assist pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction diagnosis. In a previous study, seasonally dependent assay cross-reactivity to endogenou...

Predictors of laminitis development in a cohort of non-laminitic ponies (2021)
Journal Article
Knowles, E., Elliott, J., Harris, P., Chang, R., & Menzies-Gow, N. (2021). Predictors of laminitis development in a cohort of non-laminitic ponies. Equine Veterinary Journal, https://doi.org/10.1111/evj.31_13492

Background: Quantifying the risk of laminitis development requires improvement. Objectives: To identify the most useful physical examination, metabolic and management factors to predict future laminitis development in client-owned, non-laminitic pon...
