Researchers at the University of California, Davis’ (UC Davis) recently openedResearchers at the University of California, Davis’ (UC Davis) recently opened horse stem-cell center expect to collaborate with human stem-cell researchers, as because presently veterinary medicine has stealthily taken the front state using stem cells harvested from marrow and fat.
Presently it is almost a proven fact that stem cell therapy can cure arthritis and bone injuries of dogs and horses.
Stem cell technique which is highly popular in the animal world, mainly for repairing horse injury is now in lime light.
Vet-Stem, California is famous for providing regenerative solutions in the field of veterinary science.
Although stem cell therapy has not been legalized in the West, Eastern nations, specifically in Thailand the therapy is used on a large scale. Thailand plays a home to medical tourism. Millions of people across the world visit the country to seek medical care that are lacking in other countries. In a recent update, it was found that Bangkok was offering a facial wrinkle removal treatment for £2,000 to £20,000.
In their second phase of the multi-center clinical trial, Diego-based Vet-Stem, finds fat-derived stem cell therapy effective in pets. The therapy is successful in lameness, pain and range of motion for elbow injuries.
In a major step in stem cell research in India, the Tamilnadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (TANUVAS) researchers have signed a memorandum of understanding with Nichi-in Centre for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM).
Austin-based Viagen Inc. and Monash Institute of Melbourne, Australia decide to form a joint stem cell bank for horses. The performance-horse industry could be among the first to benefit from the harnessing of embryonic stem cells to repair tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone damage, the partners say, though they expect the work to have far wider applications.
Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and the Japan Racing Association (JRA) study has supports the use of bone marrow stem cell to treat major tendon injuries in horse. Findings from the RVC indicate that stem cell therapy for superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) injury can significantly reduce the rate of re-injury over a three year period compared to conventionally treated horses.
