Pemphigus Foliaceus: Finding a New Treatment in Dogs

Title: A Pilot Study of the Efficacy of a Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (BTKi) in the Treatment of Dogs with Pemphigus Foliaceus (PF)

Purpose of Study: Although it is a rare skin disease, pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is the most common form of pemphigus and probably the most common cutaneous autoimmune disease in the dog. The goal of this study is to assess the efficacy of a Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase inhibitor (BTKi) as a therapy for canine pemphigus foliaceus (as pills which can also be crushed into powder in food if necessary).
