Dr. Maria Grant returns to deliver an update on her exciting stem cell therapy research. The discussion will provide an overview of commonly used stem cell approaches for treatment of equine injuries. A novel, non-invasive approach to harvest mesenchymal stem cells will be discussed. This approach uses electroacupuncture to mobilize stem cells that are then captured from the blood and expanded ex vivo before re-infusion. The mechanism for this approach will be detailed. New techniques using stem cells as "tracers" to identify undiagnosed lameness will also be discussed.
