Not all stem cells are the ‘same’. Just as there are physical and biological differences between different animals in any particular species, the characteristics and ‘properties’ of stem cells vary from animal to animal.
Magellan stem cell treatments are based upon the use of adult stem cells that are cultured from previously collected ‘donor cells’ sourced from especially selected healthy horses.
The advantage of using pure ‘off the shelf’ stem cell treatments (based on the use of stem cells cultured from donor cells) is that the cell lines are especially selected such that they have the optimum characteristics in terms of providing the best stem cells for the treatment of each specific disease or condition.
By culturing stem cells from especially selected ‘cell lines’, Magellan is also able to increase the number of cells in each dose such that the doses provided to horses of different size/weight are optimal in terms of achieving the best clinical outcome.
