The Veterinary Medical Forum is designed to enhance informal communications between practitioners and NC State CVM faculty on issues pertinent to medicine and surgery. During these informal discussions, we will share current management ideas, procedures and techniques which we hope will be applicable to your practice. We invite you to bring your questions and/or cases (including radiographs) relative to the topics below.
Principles Behind and Clinical Use of Biologic Therapies in Veterinary Medicine
While significant advances have been made in the field of Regenerative Medicine over the past decade, there are still many unanswered questions surrounding the therapeutic use of stem cells and other biologics. The purpose of this talk is to review the types of stem cells and point-of-care biologic products available for veterinary use including platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone marrow concentrate (BMC), autologous conditioned serum (ACS) or IRAP, and autologous protein solution (APS). The differences between each product and the current evidence for their use will be discussed. The seminar will focus on product use in horses but all principles are applicable across species.
