Incredible new results for stem cell therapy were presented at the 3rd North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Meeting in Savannah, Georgia last week. I was privelidged to attend and to present our data. One presenter showed how stem cells can function to grow new tendons and ligaments. Another (Dr. Ross Rich, Cave Creek, AZ) presented data on how over 85% of horses with ligament injury return to full performance level after being treated with adipose stem cells. I was selected to present data on how stem cells can potentially help cats with failing kidneys. Dr. John Peroni of the University of Georgia presided as the association president and introduced the keynote speaker from Georgia Tech who spoke on stem cells in bone healing. One spectacular presentation showed how adipose stem cells can heal dogs with serious tendon and ligament injuries sustained in athletic events like agility and flyball. Wow. In the coming weeks, I will post on the data presented on dogs with arthritis and horses with arthritis and also laminitis to give you a flavor of the rapid progress in discovering new ways to use these cells! They even showed how they can use advanced stem cell tracking to see how cells move around the body to do their miraculous healing jobs. A dawn of the age of Regeneration has reached the veterinary world before human medicine.
