Few canine conditions are as frustrating as dog skin allergies. Environmental allergies are particularly challenging, as in many cases the only effective treatment is steroids, which are associated with adverse side effects when used long term to treat your dog’s allergies.
A new collaborative study conducted by Santa Ana, California-based VetCell Therapeutics, a division of PrimeGen Biotech, and Western University of Health Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine in Pomona, California, will explore the use of mesenchymal stem cells to treat canine atopic dermatitis (allergic skin disease). The hope is that this stem cell therapy will be a viable alternative to long-term steroids and other medical treatments.
