DENVER, CO - A non-profit organization engaged in animal rescue in Denver called the Morris Animal Foundation collaborates with the University of Florida to further research gene-editing tools in dogs to treat heart disease. This activity is still in celebration of National Dog Day in August.

For the record, the Morris Animal Foundation has funded some research collaborating with health practitioners at several universities in America and several health institutions. To improve the quality of life for dogs at home or on the streets or on the beach, the Morris Animal Foundation organizes this activity. Therefore, research on the gene-editing tool is the fourth fundamental research to the Morris Animal Foundation.

As we know, dogs who have heart disease will feel uncomfortable in their bodies and cause death. At the same time, hundreds of dogs had heart disease, the cause of which remains a mystery to this day. There are even some dog breeds with a high percentage of heart disease.

To illustrate this, dogs with Doberman Pinscher breeds have a weak heart condition, commonly known as Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM), with a high presentation. To restore it, you can use drugs, but not infrequently; many dogs die in the end.

The researchers then experimented with reprogramming dysfunctional heart cells with the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing tool. It works by using blood cells in the Doberman pinscher and turning them into heart cells. After a while, we can see how the genetic code of heart cells can work.
