Human Crohn’s Disease Trial Reports

Posted by Bob under dog arthritis, Stem Cell Industry

Human stem cell therapy succeeds!  As part of providing insights into the world of dog arthritis, I think it is useful for you to see what all is happening in the human stem cell world.  Crohn’s disease is a horrible auto-immune disease where the lower GI tract is being attacked by the person’s own immune system.  A group in Spain has been working for a number of years treating patients with this disease with adipose stem cell therapy.  There is a great report of clinical trial you should all see (link: Crohn’s Trial Results) where more than half of these patients had a great response to being treated with adipose stem cells.  There are so many new trials around the world using stem cell from fat tissue that it is hard to keep up with the literature.  Proudly, I believe that the success with using adipose stem cells to treat dog arthritis, like Tucker’s Story,  has helped generate interest and to show the safety of this type of therapy.

Back to School on Stem Cells

Posted by Bob under dog arthritis, Dog Stem Cells

Veterinarians are education junkies.  We have continuing education opportunities nearly every week of the month, all year long.  Vet-Stem has been a leader in providing education about regenerative medicine and we provide the ONLY nationally approved regenerative medicine training course for veterinarians.  Over 3,000 veterinarians have been trained in the US in the last four years!  If your veterinarian has not taken the course, recommend they go to the Vet-Stem webpage (www.vet-stem.com) and click on the button “Vet Login” in the upper right corner of the first page.  They can register and take the FREE 3 hour course online at their own pace to become credentialed.  More next time on what they can learn and how that benefits all the patients they might see, especially relating to arthritis in dogs, cats and horses.
