Participants like Dr. Harman were able to log into a secure conference track to hear live sessions, be part of question and answer forums, and give interactive presentations. Dr. Harman’s presentation was on “The Science and Business of Veterinary Regenerative Medicine,” covering the use of stem cell therapy, types of stem cells, and uses in clinical veterinary medicine.
“Veterinary Regenerative Medicine is ‘a discipline that seeks to replace or regenerate cells, tissue or organs, to restore or establish normal function.’ Stem cell medicines have been used clinically in veterinary medicine in advance of clinical use in human medicine. There are many commercial companies already offering autologous services and allogeneic stem cell medicines globally.” -Dr. Harman.
Dr. Harman explored the science and business of veterinary regenerative medicine, introducing first the two most commonly employed tissue sources of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), which are adipose (fat) tissue derived stem cells, and bone marrow derived stem cells.
Dr. Harman also discussed the adoption of the value of the human-companion animal bond and the role of animals in improving human health, drawing from his decade of experience providing stem cell therapy for over 10,000 animals at his company, Vet-Stem. Dr. Harman covered the expansion of companies providing pet insurance, as well as the increasing numbers of pet owners who are older and without children at home have driven the demand for safe and effective veterinary stem cell therapy.
