10:45 AM – 11:00 AM: Title: A Novel, Proprietary Intravenous Delivery Solution Sustains Feline Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell Viability and Function for 7 Days at Cold Temperature. During this presentation, Dr. Maki will unveil a new stem cell shipping solution designed to keep cells fresh during shipping for up to a week.
11:30 AM – 11:45 AM: Title: Intra-articular Administration of Allogeneic Adipose Derived MSCs Reduces Pain and Lameness in Dogs with Hip Osteoarthritis: A Multicentered, Double Blinded, Randomized, Placebo Controlled Pilot Study. During this presentation, Dr. Maki will reveal the results from its clinical trial focused on treating canine osteoarthritis with allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). This trial was coordinated in Hong Kong by VetCell Therapeutics Asia under the leadership and supervision of the company's CEO Dr. Raymond Tong.
In addition, VetCell Therapeutics USA will present a poster titled, Manufacturing of Allogeneic Feline Adipose Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Clinical Applications. This poster summarizes VetCell Therapeutics USA's development of a comprehensive procedure for the production of large batches of allogeneic feline Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in a consistent and controlled setting. This controlled process results in a high-quality cell product suited for clinical research or testing in a variety of disease models. It also serves as the foundation for its global business activities with VetCell Therapeutics Asia.
"The field of regenerative medicine relies heavily on the characteristics and quality measures of the cell product being utilized. The production of a predictable, consistent high-quality cell therapy product in accordance with GMP guidelines is crucial, as is the shipping methods used for ensuring that cell products arrive at veterinary offices with consistent and reliable maximum quality. This year at NAVRMA, we're excited to showcase our latest breakthroughs in allogeneic MSC therapy production, cell therapy shipping innovations and exciting results from our own clinical studies," said Dr. Maki.
