I read this yesterday and was fascinated.  My first 18 years of animal science research centered on growth receptors and how muscles (in the animals we eat) grow and develop.  I spent many years researching insulin like growth factors one and two.  By the way, this is the reason babies of diabetic moms have a high birth weight.  Because insulin in high quantities will spill onto the the IGF-1 receptors. 
I have often wondered what it was about high levels of insulin or glucose that caused damage to to the laminae.  And this makes so much sense to me.

Interesting. I hope the researchers develop a good way to treat laminitis after it has happened.
