The Advantages of AniCell

Regenerative medicine is not new to animals. Until now, veterinarians have used different regenerative therapies, such as IRAP, Platelet-rich Plasma (“PRP”), bone marrow-derived stem cells and adipose tissue-derived stem cells. These have gained in popularity in the last ten years, however, these therapies are very invasive to the horse requiring a painful sample extraction from either blood, bone marrow or fat and typically performed in less than ideal conditions. Once these samples are procured, they are then processed in the lab to extract the stem cells and then the growth stage takes weeks to culture the cells. After a month, it can be reintroduced back into the horse or dog to treat the injury.

SAFER

A non-invasive procedure that does not require painful harvesting of bone marrow or fat. No sedation or anesthetics required.

BETTER

Amniotic material is regenerative fetal components safely collected during parturition versus culturing aged adult cells. It includes the basic building blocks of the ECM such as collagens, carbohydrates, lipids, hyaluronic acid, laminin, fibronectin and other complex growth factors. These materials aid in wound management of injured and damaged tissue.

FASTER

Amnion is immune privileged — it lacks the MHC Type II expressions (blood antigens) that would normally elicit an inflammatory immune response which means the body will not recognize it as a foreign tissue and we can use it to treat the same day.

LOWER COST

No collection kit shipping required for fat or bone marrow samples. No culturing or lab work needed.

CONVENIENT

We are able to administer immediately in the field during the acute inflammatory signaling phase. MSC’s are most effective at this time and help avoid the growth of granulation and fibrotic tissue by supplying all the necessary scaffolding material for fibroblasts to repair the ECM properly.
