The use of stem cell therapies in the treatment of joint and soft tissue injuries in horses has exploded over the past decade and continues to rise. Although stem cell therapies are popular, there is limited scientific evidence documenting the efficacy of these treatments. Studies show that effective stem cell therapies are highly dependent on how the stem cells are processed and prepared. Researchers will use new technologies to compare the characteristics of equine stem cells derived from blood, fat and bone marrow. This new information may help clinicians select and administer specific populations of stem cells that are more effective for treatment of specific disorders or injuries in horses.
