Authors(3) :-Asem M. Atwa, Nithyakalyani Asokan, Amilan Sivagurunathan

Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem and regenerative Cells (ADMSC) together with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) was used as an alternative method in improving mobility and reducing pain scores in canine hip osteoarthritis (OA) prior decision of surgical interference. In this study, ADMSC applied on five cases of osteoarthritic dogs. Osteoarthritis score chart (OAS) 1 and clinical investigations techniques were used to assess the therapeutic benefits. The aim of this study was to study the clinical efficacy of LED activation 2 prior to ADMSC administration in assessment of canine hip OA. In this pilot study, five osteoarthritic dogs of different breeds, ages and OA grads were uses. A significant results compared to the control were shown in OAS technique among treated dogs before and after ADMSC. The mean value of OAS and Weight showed significantly improved before and after ADMSC. Although, there are clear clinical improvements in mobility and pain scores were also shown. Post therapy, obvious improvements in hip osteoarthritic dogs were shown after ADMSC. Improvements were appeared in evaluating methods, mobility and reduced pain.
