Reasons Stem Cell Therapy is the future of pet health
What are Stem Cells?
Pluripotent Stem Cells
Mesenchymal (MSC) Multipotent Stem Cells
Standard vs. PREP Therapy
Adipose – In 2001 it was discovered that fat (adipose) has a significant abundance of Multipotent Stem Cells. This technology has been used in growing numbers since 2004 with very good success in orthopedic conditions.
Bone Marrow – Extraction of Stem Cells from Bone Marrow for treatment has been around for over 30 years. While generally bone marrow is harvested for the Hematopoietic cells to produce blood cells to treat leukemia and other blood diseases, bone marrow also has mesenchymal (called Multipotent Stem Cells). They have been successfully shown to differentiate into bone, cartilage, and connective tissue. In Veterinarian treatment, this is usually found in the treatment of horses.
In Bone Marrow and Adipose extraction general anesthesia is the preferred method. Both can cause pain and stress for the animal.
A simple minimally invasive blood draw is necessary to harvest the Pluripotent Stem Cells and the Platelets (PRP). Pluripotent Stem Cells derived from blood have the potential to differentiate into all types of tissues giving a much broader range of treatments. PRP has hundreds of growth factors essential in the healing process.
Our PREP THERAPY is considerably less traumatic as it involves a simple collection of your pets’ blood to isolate Pluripotent Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
Peripheral Blood Pluripotent Stem Cells have been used in the treatment of humans since July 2014, followed by animals in January 2016.
