VetStem Biopharma and PALL Life Sciences announce a clinical research/technology distribution agreement for Pall's Veterinary Platelet Enhancement Therapy system V-PET
VetStem Biopharma and PALL Life Sciences announce a clinical research and technology distribution agreement for Pall's unique filtration based Veterinary Platelet Enhancement Therapy System V-PET
"VetStem was a logical choice, given that they are the stem cell leader in the US and Canadian markets. We share a commitment to ongoing research in the life science fields.", stated Mr. Antoine, Pall Sales Manager, Americas Cell Therapy.
"The V-PET™ platelet enhancement therapy system complements perfectly our current portfolio of regenerative medicine solutions", said Dr Nahama, President and Chief Commercial Officer for VetStem. "It is validated for use in dogs and horses. Because the technology is gravity filtration based, it does not require a centrifuge to process samples. Any veterinarian in the field, at the patients’ home or in a hospital setting can have enhanced platelet therapy ready for injection in about 30 minutes."
"Stem Cell Therapy and enhanced platelet therapy are highly complementary depending on the disease state and the specific client needs", added Dr Nahama.
Platelet therapy promotes healing when the body requires help to kick start its natural internal repair processes. Platelets contain a variety of growth factors that, once released, attract progenitor cells, enhance wound healing and stimulate tissue regeneration. Since the animal is the donor and recipient of the therapy, the safety profile (autologous therapy) is very favorable.
The most common uses of platelet therapy are for indications such as hard to heal wounds, tendon and ligament injuries, as well as joint disease (osteoarthritis).
V-PET™ will be available to US and Canada veterinarians directly through VetStem Biopharma, or selected distributors, starting late November 2015.
