Extracellular Matrix and Regenerative Medicine
Revolutionary New Treatments
Whenever there is a significant loss of soft tissue due to trauma, disease or surgery, only a regenerative medicine approach can help the body replace what was lost. ACell Vet’s extracellular matrix (ECM) is comprised of a combination of multiple growth factors and multiple types of collagen known to promote tissue regeneration while reducing scarring and pain associated with inflammation.
Extracellular matrix changes the healing process and promotes normal site specific tissue, restoring normal function. The extensive science behind ECM technology can be easily understood and opens new treatment options for an extensive range of veterinary medical conditions.
The regenerative potential of ACell Vet’s ECM technology has been publicized through extensive Media Coverage on 60 Minutes, Oprah, Fox News, and others. Over 170 peer reviewed papers have been published on this technology.
How does the Healing Process Change?
ACell Vet’s ECM products fundamentally change healing by triggering abundant new blood vessel formation while recruiting numerous cell types to the wound site. These cells, including progenitor-like cells, have the potential to differentiate, organize and develop into the numerous types of site specific tissues needed to repair the injured organ.
During the healing process, the ACell Vet ECM product acts as a temporary scaffold to assist in cell migration, differentiation and maturation. Beneficial growth factors are gradually released by the ECM scaffold as it degrades until the scaffold is completely replaced by new functional tissue. Now, even in the most difficult of cases, repairing damaged or lost tissues can be accomplished easily and with predictable results.
An Optimal Application for Each Specific Procedure
ACell Vet’s ECM products are available in both powder form and lyophilized sheets for wound care and surgical applications. Discs are available for applications relating to injuries of the cornea and dental/oral applications.
ACell Vet’s ECM products can be used for remodeling of damaged or lost tissue in large and small animals, including equine, avian, as well as exotics. Consider ACell Vet materials for any surgical procedure where tissue restoration and enhanced healing are desired.
