Joint injuries are a major cause of economic loss in the horse industry. Even a small cartilage injury in a critical spot can end a successful career of a race horse.
This RIRDC report focuses on the new stem cell technology for producing equine stem cells to treat horse cartilage injury and many other diseases. The protocols for isolation of equine embryonic stem cells, ovine and equine amnion epithelium stem cells are described in the report.
