Horse stem cell conference to draw veterinarians and human-health professionals
Date:2/24/2010

nt years, equine veterinarians have used regenerative therapies to repair wounds and to treat horses suffering from diseases including neuromuscular degeneration and laminitis, an inflammation of the tissue that joins the foot and hoof.

Horses have been one of the first species to benefit from veterinary stem cell therapy.

UC Davis' veterinary stem cell team

The Center for Equine Health at UC Davis is coordinating a collaborative regenerative medicine research study, now in its fourth year. The study is being carried out by a team of 20 UC Davis researchers, including veterinary scientists and members of the UC Davis Department of Biomedical Engineering, led by Distinguished Professor Kyriacos Athanasiou. The scientists are working to develop methods for collecting, processing, storing and administering stem cells to repair bone, tendon and ligament injuries in horses.

These types of injuries are common problems especially for racehorses and other performance horses. The team's early findings indicate that stem cell treatments may reduce the recurrence of certain tendon and ligament injuries and lessen the progression of arthritis associated with traumatic joint diseases in horses.

This veterinary team, under the direction of UC Davis professor and equine surgeon Larry Galuppo, also has established a working partnership with the UC Davis Health System's Stem Cell Program in human medicine, directed by Jan Nolta, a medical school professor and one of the nation's leading stem cell researchers.
