Pp. 170-233 (64)
Cell-based therapy is a growing field in veterinary medicine and has created
a lot of hope and excitements for developing new therapies for degenerative diseases
that otherwise cannot be treated by traditional medical approaches. Clinical studies in
dogs, cats and horses show promising results indicating that stem cells and other cellbased
products may facilitate tissue repair and improve quality of life in companion
animals. In this review, different cell based therapies, their risks and benefits and their
possible therapeutic use for veterinary medical application will be discussed.
