Regenerative medicine has seen groundbreaking discoveries in the past two decades, and veterinary medicine is playing a pivotal role. The latest supplemental issue from JAVMA will bring you up to speed on the latest regenerative therapies for your patients. 

The Current State of Veterinary Regenerative Medicine is already available online. JAVMA subscribers will receive the print version with the regular June issue.

What can you expect to find?

Guest editor Dr. Kyla Ortved—who also coauthored two of the articles—characterizes the supplement as “an exciting combination of groundbreaking original research as well as narrative reviews on topics that highlight the broad-reaching therapeutic potential of regenerative medicine in small, large, and even exotic animals.”

You’ll find the pages are packed with highly relevant articles on a variety of clinical applications. For example:

  • Platelet-rich plasma for tissue healing in dogs
  • Mesenchymal stem/stromal cell products for treating disease in cats 
  • Genetically engineered T cells for immunotherapy in dogs with non-malignant disease
  • Stem cells for treating tendon and ligament injuries in horses
  • IL-1ra gene therapy for treating osteoarthritis in horses 
  • Cellular therapies for treating neurologic disease in horses and dogs
  • Mesenchymal stem cells for various uses in exotic animals

Find out which therapies show promise in preliminary studies or clinical trials, and which have yet to find their footing. 

You’ll also learn about extracellular vesicles, which are garnering much attention in the regenerative field as a possible biotherapeutic. The supplement’s articles cover everything from culture methods to potential use of extracellular vesicles for tissue regeneration.

More from the AVMA journals

JAVMA supplemental issues are just one example of the journal’s mission to advance the practice of veterinary medicine by publishing peer-reviewed and clinically relevant articles in accessible formats.

The AVMA Journals Virtual Collections have grown to encompass nearly two dozen clinically important themes, on everything from analgesia to workforce. They feature articles from both JAVMA and the American Journal of Veterinary Research (AJVR), and they’re available for anyone to read free of charge.

AVMA’s Veterinary Vertex podcast takes you behind the scenes of the clinical and research discoveries published in JAVMA and AJVR, delivering both practical medical knowledge and a healthy dose of inspiration. Veterinary Vertex and AVMA’s My Veterinary Life podcast were recently named the top two podcasts in veterinary medicine.

The monthly Veterinary Advances newsletter curates the latest cutting-edge research from JAVMA and AJVR, and delivers it to your email inbox so you don't have to go looking for it.

JAVMA’s technical/tutorial videos are a groundbreaking way to experience all the hallmarks of a peer-reviewed scientific manuscript in a brief (under 5 minutes), narrated visual display.
