Commercial Cell-based Therapies for Musculoskeletal Injuries in Horses

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Several cell-based therapeutic options to treat musculoskeletal injuries in horses are commercially available. The current literature supports the use of cell-based therapies to treat equine musculoskeletal injuries. Researchers continue to search for more effective cell-based therapies to provide practitioners with optimal treatment tools for musculoskeletal injuries in horses. Cell-based therapies require specialized facilities and technical competencies that might not be available or economically justifiable in many private practices. This review provides a summary of current commercially available cell-based therapeutic products for equine applications, their similarities and differences, and current objective data relating to their clinical efficacy.
