The Science Behind Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell rejuvenation procedures are a revolutionary new approach to treating animal injuries and diseases. At its core we find the use of autologous adipose tissue-derived stem cell (ADSC) therapy for the treatment of arthritis, joint damage, cartilage damage, tendon damage, laminitis and hip dysplasia. Adipose (fat) tissue contains a stromal population containing microvascular endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and stem cells. This population of stem cells has extensive proliferative potential and the ability to differentiate into cartilage, bone, cardiac tissue, skeletal muscle among other tissues.

Several mechanisms have been associated with the therapeutic effects of ADSC’s including their ability to reduce inflammation. Mesenchymal stem cells (which are part of the population of cells isolated from fat tissue) also have well documented immunomodulatory effects and have been known to improve graft-versus host disease in people. Some studies have demonstrated that ADSC’s can induce mature cartilage development. Other potential mechanisms include that stem cells also promote tissue healing through local secretion of cytokines and growth factors which can serve to recruit stem cells from other tissues to the affected tissue to facilitate repair and healing.
