Burnt Hills Veterinary Hospital Seeks Candidates for an Investigational Study of Stem Cells for Dogs with Arthritis
Date:8/29/2014

Burnt Hills, NY (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

Local veterinarian, Dr. Keith Clement, and his team at Burnt Hills Veterinary Hospital are seeking candidates to participate in an investigational study of donor stem cells for dogs with osteoarthritis. The ultimate goal of this study is to determine if a single injection of donor stem cells into one or two arthritically affected joints can help reduce pain and inflammation in the treated joints.

Candidates for the current investigational study must be older than nine months, weigh more than five and a half pounds, have osteoarthritis of only one or two leg joints, have had pain or lameness for at least three months, and must not have cancer. Joints that will be included in the study and injected under anesthesia include hips, stifles, shoulders, and elbows. Dogs that may be considered must be in good health and undergo a diagnostic work up before qualifying for the study. Dogs that qualify for the study may not have had previous stem cell therapy of any kind.

In 2008, Dr. Clement was credentialed with Vet-Stem, Inc. in Regenerative Veterinary Medicine for arthritis, ligament and tendon injuries, and joint issues with stem cell therapy. To date he has treated over 80 patients. In May 2011 Dr. Clement presented a paper at the 2nd Annual North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Association Conference and November 2011 he spoke on stem cell therapy at the Illinois Veterinary Medical Association Conference.

For information about the study, Dr. Clement can be reached at 518-399-5213.
