Stem cell trial on horses

Veterinarians in Wichita conducted the first phase of a stem cell trial today in Wichita. Their goal is to treat laminitis, a disease in horses hoofs. They will do this using stem cells taken from the horses using liposuction. Laminitis is painful and even crippling for horses.

“Those horses usually digress over time to the point where they finally lose their life,” Dr. Preston Hickman said.

The trial is 90 days. The ten horses participating will have 3 stem cell injections over the three months.

The discovery was made by Ji Wu of the University of Shanghai Jiao Tong and contradicts previous research on the female reproductive system, possibly paving the way for new prospects to treat sterility and revolutionize female reproduction, which after menopause could make use of germline stem cells that were previously isolated
