New Service Encourages Preemptive Stem Cell Collection



Published:

Veterinary stem cell service company Vet-Stem launched a new service aimed at collecting and storing stem cells when a dog is young, before it needs the regenerative cells for therapy.

The service, called StemInsure, requires veterinarians to collect about 4 grams of fat from a dog or puppy during an anesthetized procedure, such as a spay or a neuter. The fat is then processed and stem cells are cryopreserved in Vet-Stem’s facility. The cells can later be cultured to provide stems cells for the lifetime of the dog.

“The ability to store the cells in conjunction with another procedure is a great way to ensure that the dog will have access to a lifetime of cell therapy while reducing the number of anesthetic events,” said Bob Harman, DVM, M.P.V.M., CEO of Poway, Calif.-based Vet-Stem.

The cells can be used for Vet-Stem’s Regenerative Cell Therapy to treat osteoarthritis and tendon or ligament injuries.
