AdiCell for your dog's joint pain

Treating arthritis with your dog's own healing cells

AdiCellâ„¢ is an advanced but simple treatment for your dog's osteoarthritis. It uses your dog's fat cells to treat an arthritic joint, such as a hip or knee. AdiCell is a safe procedure that puts to work your pet's natural regeneration system. 

Our results show significant improvement in pain and mobility. AdiCell treated dogs are healthier and lead more active lives without drugs. 

Learn more about AdiCell. Watch Dr Katrina Warren interviews with dog owners (5:40).

AdiCell update

5 February 2011, BBC's Health Check with Claudia Hammond.

The BBC takes its broadcast to Sydney's Taronga Zoo. Reporter Nicky Phillips checks progress with AdiCell patient, Kamala. Kamala, an endangered snow leopard, received the stem cell treatment in November 2010.

Regeneus' Dr Ben Herbert also explains how AdiCell works. Listen to the BBC broadcast: Stem cells helping to ease pain of osteoarthritis in a snow leopard (BBC website, 06:20).

No rejection with regenerative stem cells

Your animal will not reject cells from its own body so there is minimal risk. Using an animal's own cells is an easy way to reproduce what nature does best. If body tissue is damaged, stem cells help advance the healing process.

Stem cells are undifferentiated. This means they can become a cell type where needed, due to disease or injury. They may take on many different functions. For example, they can regenerate

  • Bones
  • Cartilage (connective tissue)
  • Heart
  • Nerves
  • Muscles
  • Blood vessels
  • Fat tissue
  • Liver tissue

Recent discoveries in mature stem cells

Recently research into stem cells has generated a great deal of excitement. Scientists have found mature stem cells in many more tissues than they once thought possible. First from bone marrow and now from fat, scientists use mature stem cells for procedures such as transplants. Fat tissue is an extremely rich source of these cells.
