Cartilage and joint repair for your Horse
The beneficial effect of MSCs on cartilage morphology and histology has been demonstrated in various models. These beneficial effects are due to the fact that MSCs secrete soluble factors, which cause multiple immune effects and influence the matrix turnover in synovium and cartilage. MSCs treat symptoms and support the formation of normal hyaline cartilage, keeping animals healthier for longer.
As horses are predisposed to traumatic wounds that can be labor intensive and expensive to heal, equine MSCs start to play an important role in wound repair and healing of joint defects.
MSCs produce a mix of anti-inflammatory proteins, including IL-1RA, with growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration.
