Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia Study (PDF)
Dr. Boudreaux has kindly granted reprint permission on this article. Please note: this is for educational purposes only. The Great Pyrenees of America did not fund the studies. The GPCA Health Committee would like to say that though we have yet to receive any reporting of this disease through our health surveys, we feel it is important to provide the information on this site. We would also ask that if you do have a Pyr that was diagnosed with GT,please submit a health survey indicating such. It is only through the results of our health survey that the GPCA Health Committee can make a recommendation to support a study.
