Sometimes something that seems logical is wrong, or at least not the whole story, especially when applied to much different breeds. A BC is not the same as a Dane!
There are several peer-reviewed studies at the bottom of the patent description. I can send you the PDFs if you would like.

Also, if one is genuinely interested, I'd recommend consulting Linda Arndt - she knows a great deal about the subject and can tell you in more scientific terms than I can...

Here's a little info by her - http://www.greatdanelady.com/article...l_research.htm

Her contact info is on the site. She's generally very quick to get back to folks on questions. She's been very helpful to me in the past.
