Atrophie progressive de la rétine (crd1-APR)

Most of canine retinal diseases with known causal mutations are rod-cone degenerations also known as progressive retinal atrophies (PRAs), which are characterized by progressive rod-led photoreceptor degeneration that is followed by cone photoreceptor demise. In contrast, cone-rod dystrophies are characterized by the relatively early loss of cone photoreceptors. Crd1 usually affects very young dogs (less than 1-year old) and causes severe photopic and scotopic visual impairment, which can progress to complete blindness in early adulthood. Mutation causing crd1 has been observed in American Staffordshire Terrier dogs. Because American Staffordshire Terrier dogs and American Pit Bull Terrier dogs are closely related breeds and are sometimes crossbred it is possible that the same mutation also appears at American Pit Bull Terrier dogs.
