Please join us at the 37th annual Winn Symposium in Toronto on July 2, 2015. Steve Dale, internationally known radio personality and Master of Ceremonies, introduces Dr. Craig Webb, DVM, PhD, DACVIM and Associate Professor from Colorado State University. Following is a Question and Answer session with Drs. Jody Gookin and Dr. Webb.
Dr. Webb presents "Feline stem cells as a novel treatment for chronic intestinal disease in cats". While the search for solutions to the common problem of chronic diarrhea in cats continues, Winn research is at the forefront of new potential therapies. Evidence-based treatments of dietary intervention, Vitamin B12 supplementation, and probiotics will be briefly reviewed. Potential beneficial treatment regimens have been identified, as the properties and use of stem cells for various treatments are better understood. One example is fat-derived feline stem cells whose abundant properties appear to make them suited for the treatment of feline chronic intestinal disease or diarrhea. Dr. Webb will highlight how stem cells work and describe a pilot study that supports further study of this type of therapeutic approach.
