Applying regenerative cells from your pet’s own healthy tissue directly to the site of an injury helps the body heal itself by secreting growth factors, reducing inflammation, modulating the immune system and regenerating injured tissue in a potent but natural way. This holistic process can be used in addition to or as an alternative to chronic drug therapy or surgery saving 1000’s of dollars over your pet’s life.
How Does The Process Work?
Fat tissue is obtained from your pet in an in-clinic procedure, and regenerative cells (including stem cells) are prepared for re-injection in about 90 minutes. Initial results may be evident as early as the 1st week.
Why Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative cells promote healing and regeneration of injured or damaged tissue. Stem cells are regenerative cells that can differentiate into multiple cell types to form new functional tissue. These cells, located in your pet’s fat stores can be harvested, separated from the fat and stimulated to revert to an active reparative state. Regenerative cells may also secrete factors that reduce autoimmune responses and inflammation, promote cell survival, and stimulate tissue regeneration.
Our system providers, InGeneron and Medivet Biologics, have been conducting research for years on the use of autologous adult stem cells in regenerative medicine. InGeneron’s team of scientists and clinicians have published more than 40 peer-reviewed studies in collaboration with renowned academic facilities such as M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Tulane University. Medivet is currently conducting research on stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis at Kansas State University, and Cartilage Regeneration and osteoarthritis at the University of Georgia.
Unlike other cell therapy procedures, both the InGeneron and MediVet systems enable isolation and treatment within the same day processed at the Safari Stem Cell Laboratory assuring high quality and quantity of cells.
