Adicell - Stem cell therapy for arthritic dogs now available in South Australia

AdiCell - Stem cell therapy for arthritic dogs now available in South AustraliaAdelaide Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre (AVSARC), South-Australia’s leading small animal veterinary specialist and referral centre, and REGENEUS PTY LTD, Sydney-based pioneering biotech company are working in partnership with AdiCell™, the first Australian stem cell therapy treating osteoarthritis in dogs. 

AdiCell™ is an advanced technology that uses the dog’s stem cells harvested from fat to help reduce joint pain and potentially repair painful arthritic joints. It is an additional treatment option to assist in management of arthritis symptoms in dogs. Unlike major surgery, it is a non-invasive, one-day procedure. AdiCell™ has demonstrated good results in the first 130 dogs with around 80-90% clinical response rates. The treatment is now available to dogs all across South Australia at the Adelaide Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre. 

 Recently  cryopreserved  stem cell allograft has also become available and offers a  minimally invasive and less expensive stem cell treatment option if only a single joint is available or as an adjunct treatment during or after surgery 

Practitioners in veterinary clinics around South Australia can refer dogs to Dr Penny Tisdall in the surgery service for assessment for the AdiCell™ stem cell therapy.
