This news item is about: Baker Institute immunologist Dr. Elia Tait Wojno wants to unlock the mystery of the canine immune system. She seeks to find better ways to treat a common affliction, and possibly the most burdensome one, in the West Highland White Terrier breed – atopic dermatitis (AD). New funding from the Westie Foundation of America (WFA) will provide the support she needs to launch a new study. According to the AKC Canine Health Foundation, 10% of dogs are affected by AD which is the second most common allergy in dogs behind flea bite allergy.
