SCID DNA Disease Statistics for Arabian Horses

Disease Statistics

VetGen has been collecting statistics on the Arabian Horse SCID test, and as a result of numerous requests, we are pleased to furnish this data to interested individuals.

Disease Frequency

As of December 11, 2006, having tested over 7,397 Arabian Horses, the percentages from our DNA tests are as follows:

Clear: 82.4%
Carrier: 17.2%
Affected: 0.3%


The SCID Affected Percentage only refers to the horses that have been tested by VetGen before they died (and they ALL died). Other affected foals died before they were tested
