Enhancing Canine Adipose Mesenchymal Stromal Cells for Treatment of Osteoarthritis
Tuesday, September 10, 9:30 AM – 10:00 AM
My talk will focus on the results from our human clinical trials using bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells, and the results from this trial. I will also briefly discuss our proprietary technology to enhance the anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties of MSCs and how we have been adapting this to canine MSCs with the hopes of testing them in domestic dogs with dysplasia with Dr. Koch.
