Canine Stem Cells

Canine photoCanine adult stem cell rapidly improving and adapting to the times.  Adult stem cells theraoies are used to treat disease today.  The probably most well known stem cell therapy use is the umbilical cord blood stem cell transplants and the peripheral blood stem cells and bone marrow stem cell transplants.

Cell therapy make it possible to clone organs which can be transplanted into humans whose livers, kidneys, heart is failing.  The most important potential application of human stem cells is the generation of cells and issues that could be used for cell-based therapies.

When your canine friend gets sick brought about by old age, like tear a ligament or tissue and skeleton fails to heal, adult stem cells are the body’s natural system of renewal.  Fewer stem cells are released into circulation as the dog reaches a mature and older age.  When there is a high number of circulating stem cells in the canine or human, the faster and more complete is the repair and renewal.  More stem cells in circulation, better overall health.  Who would want our canine friends to be dire health situations?

What are the common sicknesses that adult stem cell can cure?

Surprisingly, adult stem cell can cure stroke and traumatic bran injury.  In healthy adult animals, progenitor cells migrate within the brain and function primarily to maintain neuron populations for olfaction (the sense of smell).  In case of a brain injury, substantial recovery is rarely observed in adults, suggesting a lack of robustness.

Aside from brain injury, adult stem cells in the brains of the dogs has shown to be very successful in treating cancerous tumors.  With traditional techniques, brain cancer is almost impossible to treat because it spreads rapidly.  Stem cells neither differentiated nor turned tumorigenic cells.  The current cancer treatments are designed to kill all cancer cells, but through this method, researches would be able to develop drugs to specifically target these stem cells.Canine photo

Lymphomas and hematopoietic cancers to HIC, the disruption of cell homeostasis within the immune system commonly leads to disease. The specificity of one’s immune cell repertoire, which allows it to recognize foreign antigen, causes further challenges in the treatment of immune disease. Identical matches between donor and recipient must be made for successful transplantation treatments, while matches are uncommon, even between first-degree relatives. Research using both hematopoietic adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells has contributed great insight into possible mechanisms and methods of treatment for many of these ailments.

Baldness and missing teeth can also be addressed by adult stem cell treatment.  Hair follicles also contain stem cells, and some researches predict research on these follicle stem cells.  Baldness can be treated by hair multiplication which is also known as hair cloning.  Researches are also confident that adult stem cell research can also be used to grow live teeth.  Deafness, blindness and vision impairment can also be restored by adult stem cell treatment.

Stem cells are harvested from the dog’s fat.  The stem cells harvested are injected into the dog’s painful body part.  Stem cells have ability to differentiate tissues.  Since the stem cells came from the pet they are injected to, it is almost impossible for rejection.

If ever the stem cell get rejected, an ovum will be harvested from an animal and its DNA will be sucked out.  Then new DNA would be extracted from a cell in the patient and inserted into the evacuated ovum, creating the patient’s embryonic clone.

Is your dog a candidate for canine adult stem cell treatment?  Dogs that have not responded or cannot tolerate non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and dogs that are not good candidates for orthopedic surgery are some of the candidates for stem cell treatment.  While dogs with early arthritis or have multiple joints afflicted with arthritis are also candidates for stem cell treatment.
