1. Evaluation of the remodelling of myocardium in dogs with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD).

Team: Izabela Janus, DVM, Marcin Nowak DVM, PhD, Rafał Ciaputa DVM, PhD, Małgorzata Kandefer-Gola, DVM, PhD, prof. Janusz A. Madej, DVM, PhD (in collaboration with the Department of Internal Diseases: Agnieszka Noszczyk-Nowak, DVM, PhD, prof. Urszula Pasławska, DVM, PhD)

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and myxomytous mitral valve disease (MMVD) are the most common heart diseases in dogs. The first one occurs most often in large- and giant breed dogs and involves progressing loss of contractility and dilation of left ventricle with a secondary mitral regurgitation and left atrial enlargement. Structural changes can be accompanied by rhythm disturbances (mainly atrial fibrillation). MMVD is a disease in which mitral valve undergoes a progressive degeneration with thickening and stiffness of valve leaflets. Those changes cause mitral regurgitation and left atrial enlargement. Both diseases lead to escalation of heart insufficiency and often do animal’s death.
Both differences (breed predisposition, age of disease onset, various pathomechanism) and similarities (heart chamber enlargement) can be noted between those diseases.
Our research aims to a comparison of histopathological changes present in the myocardium of dogs with DCM and MMVD.
The majority of histopathological studies on these diseases concern on specimens obtained from left ventricle, therefore we begun our research from a comparison of specimens from ventricles and from atria in dogs with DCM and MMVD. We noted that myocardial changes seen in ventricles are expressed on the same or higher level in cardiac atria (Janus et al. 2015).
In the second stage of the research, we compared the histopathological changes (fibrosis, fatty infiltration, vascular changes, cardiomyocyte degeneration) in left atrial specimens from dogs with DCM and MMVD. We have noted that, although both diseases are accompanied by left atrial enlargement, the changes in heart tissue have various character (Janus et al. 2016).
In the next part of our research, we performed an immunohistochemical evaluation of left atrial specimens from dogs with either DCM or MMVD, using various cell markers (desmin, vimentin, periostin, caspase-3, sarcomeric actin, smooth muscle actin, SERCA proteins, dystrophin). In that examination we also found significant differences between these diseases (Janus et al. 2016; Janus et al – paper not yet published).
Our research shows that despite similarities, changes occurring in heart muscle in DCM and MMVD have various character. The differences noted in our work can contribute to better understanding of mechanism underlying these two diseases, that result in clinical signs (e.g. rhythm disturbances).

2. An immunohistochemical evaluation of neoplastic lesions in bitch mammary glands using novel cell markers.
Team: Borecka Paulina, DVM, Marcin Nowak, DVM PhD

Mammary gland tumours are one of the most common neoplasms in bitches. Despite wide range of publications in that topic, usefulness of various cell markers used in human medicine, has not been yet examined in dogs. In our research we will evaluate the reaction of novel neoplastic markers of tumour stroma and lymphatic and blood vessels.
The research will be conducted on specimens of mammary gland neoplasms that were collected during surgery or after death from bitches of various age and breed. Both benign and malignant tumours will be subject of our study. Also the age of an animal and tumour diameter will be analysed. Control group will consist of normal mammary glands form bitches of various breed and age that underwent euthanasia or sudden death and in the necropsy did not show neoplastic lesions, especially in mammary gland.
Specimens from mammary gland will be fixed in 7% buffered formalin, dehydratated and placed in paraffin blocks. A preliminary histopathological examination will be performed after standard haematoxylin-eosin staining basing on Goldschmidt classification. Next, an immunohistochemical analysis, using various markers (Ki67, HER2, podoplanin, vimentin) will be performed. Both monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies will be used in the study. The immunohistochemical reaction will be evaluated using IRS (immune-reactive score) scale, that take into consideration both the percentage of antibody-positive cells and the intensity of reaction. Photomicrographs will be taken from the examined specimens, and statistical analysis (using Statistica 12 for Windows, StatSoft, Poland) will be performed on the results.
The aim of the study is to try to better understand the essence of cancerogenesis and to try to find new markers that can be used in evaluating the prognosis of the disease.

3. Immunohistochemical diagnostics of gonads in dog and cats with disorders of sex development.
Team: Stanisław Dzimira, DVM, PhD, prof. Janusz Madej, DVM, PhD
Sex differentiation disorders (disorders of sex development - DSD) are associated with its unusual differentiation at the chromosomal, gonadal or somatic level. The current division into three main groups DSD in humans, i.e., DSD sex chromosomes, XY DSD and DSD XX was adopted also for dogs and cats.
The aim of the research is immunohistochemical analysis of the gonads of healthy dogs and cats, and animals affected by the disorders of sex development, using antibody markers cytokeratin, desmin, vimentyn, smooth muscle actin, non-specific enolase, inhibin ?, MCM3. The material for the study are the gonads of ten dogs, phenotypic females surgically removed and sent for histopathological examination. And the testes of four cats with disorders of sex development. The control group are the ovaries and testes of ten healthy dogs and testes from five healthy cats obtained after routine surgery gonadectomy. Material fixed in formalin, embedded in paraffin and cut to 4 microns thick sections, stained by routine hematoxylin and eosin. Immunohistochemistry was performed using mono- or polyclonal antibodies from DAKO, ie. Vimentin, desmin, smooth muscle actin, S100, NSE, inhibin alfa and MCM3 proteins.
