I heard from Dr Cole yesterday, and Bentley will be going to OSU to participate in the PSOM study on July 19th. If he meets the study criteria on that day he'll stay over and take part in the study tests and procedures.

If he does stay for the 20th I am planning on staying over that night in a hotel close to the university so he can rest up from the anesthesia.

That;s great that you have the date now -- I sure hope he gets on the study. I would LOVE to get Jaspar and Leo both on that study, if only... both have PSOM and it would be wonderful to learn more, get their ears flushed, and help researchers learn more too.

:confused: Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but what is PSOM?

I hope he gets on the program :xfngr:

Tanya PSOM stands for Primary Secretory Otitis Media and it is a canine version of glue ear. Karlin has an excellent blurb on it here (http://board.cavaliertalk.com/showthread.php?t=9213).

I'm fortunate in that I live only about three hours from Ohio State University! :)

Bentley will have to pass some initial testing on the first day to be able to actually participate in the tests for the study. He will have neuro and cardiac exams, a general physical, and some blood testing. I think this is to evaluate his condition because he will have to be under general anesthesia for the study tests.
