STEM CELL TREATMENTS FOR LIGAMENT AND TENDON LESIONS IN HORSES
Equcell treatment benefits
— Tendon and ligaments are completely regenerated by cells of the same horse
— It avoids scarring with fibrous tissue, obtaining the same elasticity and resistance as the original tissue
— Recovery time is optimized
— The probability of the injury’s recurrence is significantly reduced
— Global statistics show a 75% reduction in recurrence
— A fraction of cells is cryo-preserved for future needs
We have experience with over 30 high-performance horses of several disciplines: jumping, polo and racing with successful results.
A SIMPLE PROCEDURE
Phase I: Stem cells (Mesenquimatic Progenitor Cells, MPC) are obtained from bone marrow or fat
Phase II: The sample is sent to BioAplicada, where the MPCs are purified and cultured during 15 to 20 days under strict biosafety conditions. A fraction of these cells can also be cryo-preserved for future regeneration needs.
Phase III: The cultured cells (10 to 20 million) are delivered to the veterinary professional for its intra-lesion injection.
