Intra-articular Administration of Allogeneic Adipose-Derived MSCs Reduces Pain and Lameness in Dogs With Hip Osteoarthritis: A Double-Blinded, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Pilot Study (2020)
By Chad B. Maki1, Anthony Beck, Chan-Benami Cheuk Chi Wallis, Justin Choo, Thomas Ramos1, Raymond Tong, Dori L. Borjesson5 and Fariborz Izadyar
This study was conducted to investigate the therapeutic effect of allogeneic adipose-derived MSCs on dogs with hip osteoarthritis (OA). Twenty dogs with bilateral osteoarthritis of the coxofemoral (hip) joint, diagnosed by a veterinarian through physical examination and radiographs were randomly allocated into four groups.
STEM CELL THERAPY FOR TENDON REGENERATION: CURRENT STATUS AND FUTURE DIRECTIONS (2018)
By Sabine Conrad, Kathrin Weber, Ulrich Walliser, Florian Geburek, and Thomas Skutella
About chapter: In adults, the healing tendon generates fibrovascular scar tissue and recovers never histologically, mechanically, and functionally which leads to chronic and to degenerative diseases. In this review, the processes and mechanisms of tendon development and fetal regeneration in comparison to adult defect repair and degeneration are discussed in relation to regenerative therapeutic options.
We focused on the application of stem cells, growth factors, transcription factors, and gene therapy in tendon injury therapies in order to intervene the scarring process and to induce functional regeneration of the lesioned tissue.
Outlines for future therapeutic approaches for tendon injuries will be provided.

Book chapter: Stem Cell Therapy for Musculoskeletal Diseases (2019)
Book chapter by Benjamin B. Rothrauff, Alessandro Pirosa, Hang Lin, Jihee Sohn, Mark T. Langhans, Rocky S. Tuan
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA, United States
About chapter: This review focuses on stem cell therapies for musculoskeletal diseases. In particular, we highlight stem cell applications for individual tissues of the musculoskeletal system (bone, articular cartilage, tendon and ligament, meniscus, intervertebral disc, and skeletal muscle) as well as transitions between tissues (osteochondral interfaces and tendon-bone interfaces). For each, the relevant structure and function are described. Because embryological development of these tissues and the phenotypic characteristics of their resident cells are described in detail in other chapters, only a succinct discussion of tissue-specific endogenous cells is included. There is an emphasis on findings of preclinical and clinical studies when possible.
