Transcript of Regenerative Treatments for Equine OA

Regenerative Treatments for Equine Osteoarthritis by Alex Kukorowski What is osteoarthritis in equine? Origins... Age Performance Trauma Conformation Developmental diseases Physiologic factors Conditioning Hock joint Carpal joint NOT hereditary 60% of all lameness On the molecular level... Catabolic peptides Anabolic peptides Degrade cartilage and ECM Specific peptides:
Proteases Trauma Specific Immune system and joint tissues IL-1 and other
inflammatory proteins Fetlock joint Outline Osteoarthritis
General information
On the molecular level Therapies
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
IRAP (Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein)
Gene therapies Socioeconomic Issue Can be identified by... Diagnosing Osteoarthritis... Observations by a veterinarian
Nuclear bone scans
Thermal imaging
Ultrasounds Nuclear Factor Kappa-Beta transcription factor
regulates gene expression "up" regulates the genes that encode for inflammatory proteins Simple solutions... Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Prokaryotic cells
Lipid bilayer membrane Create a scaffold within the join that
retains growth factors
encourage the release of proteins that stimulate tissue repair Research From the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona Interleukin-1 Antagonist Protein Therapy Main goal... combat IL-1 with IRAP Prevents IL-1 from bonding with their receptors within the joint. 50 mL of blood is incubated in a special syringe
that stimulates IRAP.
This is injected back into the affected joint. IRAP as Gene Therapy McIlwraith and Colleagues
Genetic squence for IRAP was packaged inside an adenovirus
This causes the joints to produce larger quanities of IRAP Dr. Frisbie at Colorado State University
Packaged IL-Ra gene into an adenoviral vector
Observed increased amounts of IL-Ra in 48 hours after injection
In research, they injected eight horses with IL-Ra and did not inject another eight. After 56 days they found continued improvement in the horses that received injections.
To date, this therapy has been the most successfully in quickly treating equine osteoarthritis. By the Numbers Diagnosing a lameness
$400 full examination
$45 per x-ray
$2,300 nuclear bone scan Treating Osteoarthritis
$400 - 1,000 per PRP injection
$1,100 for preparation of IRAP and $125 - 150 per injection Tack and Talk Free Lance Instructor's Diary Horse Grooming Supplies University of Florida Flickr My Horse America's Horse Daily Smart Pak Equine Horses in the South Inceptsaves Information Technology University of Florida SDequine Creston Large Animal Horses in the South Where to go from here...
