Qeva Velvet Products Corp, announced the commencement of a double blind placebo clinical trial to study the effects of velvet antler on degenerative joint disease (arthritis) in dogs.
The clinical trial is being conducted by Dr. Jacques Dupuis through the University of Montreal. Dr. Dupuis is a world-renowed researcher and has 22 papers published in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Dupuis is also an expert on joint disease in small animals. He lectures at many global veterinarian conferences on the subject.
There are over 60 million dogs in the USA alone. If this study confirms the benefits of EVA in treating arthritis in dogs, it could result in a significant increased demand for velvet and be a major boost for the industry. The study will be completed by November 2001.
