Ultrasound is used to precisely guide the injection of adipose-derived stem cells into the suspensory ligament. The still-developing technology of stem cell therapy, which uses unspecified cells from the horse’s body, has the potential to help racehorses heal sounder than ever before. A tendon is a bundle of elastic fibers, mostly made of collagen, that attaches muscle to bone and helps move the skeleton. Ligaments are similar but attach bone to bone and provide stability. When a horse bows a tendon, it tears the fibers at a certain point of the tendon (the location results in a name, such as high or low bow), weakening it significantly. When the tendon begins to knit back together, it is significantly hampered by lack of blood flow. Blood provides several healing mechanisms, including adult stem cells, which are able to convert themselves into specific types of cells the body needs to heal itself (in this case, tendon cells). If the tendon does not get enough help, it eventually develops scar tissue, which weakens the tendon because it is nonelastic and haphazardly knitted together. The injury takes a long time to heal – a typical racetrack cure was pinfiring or blistering, followed by six months to a year of turnout. If a horse was brought back to the track and the tendon had mostly healed with scar tissue, the weakened tendon could give way and the injury recur.
W e have all heard about the extraordinary promise that stem cell research holds for the treatment of a wide range of diseases and conditions. However, there is a lot of work still needed to take this research and turn it into safe and effective treatments. The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is very concerned that stem cell therapies are being sold around the world before they have been proven safe and effective. Stem cell therapies are nearly all new and experimental. In these early stages, they may not work, and there may be downsides. Make sure you understand what to look out for before considering a stem cell therapy. Remember, most medical discoveries are based on years of research performed at universities and companies. There is a long process that shows first in laboratory studies and then in clinical research that something is safe and will work. Like a new drug, stem cell therapies must be assessed and meet certain standards before receiving approval from national regulatory bodies to be used to treat people. What does this really mean for you as a patient, doctor, friend or family member? Below we hope to answer some of your questions on stem cells and stem cell therapies and give you the resources you and your doctor need to make the best decisions possible for treatment. The ISSCR is a non-profit professional stem cell research organization with a commitment to ensure the promise of stem cell research is delivered to patients in a safe, effective and fair manner.

In the context of today’s changing fiscal landscape on both the state and federal level, the Metro North REB is entering a stage of development that is guided by new opportunities as well as challenges. As it moves forward, the REB must identify creative new approaches, consider diverse sources of funding, and streamline existing systems to optimize efficiency. In addition, undertaking a renewed philosophy of continuous improvement and innovation in program implementation will be crucial to adjusting approaches in workforce development to align with the ever-changing economy. Historically, the education and workforce development systems have been only sporadically, marginally, or indirectly connected to business needs. Although some components of the workforce development system (notably community-based training and employment programs), have a long history of aligning their training with strong employer partnerships, the K-12 and college education systems have been grounded in a philosophy of preparing people for life, by providing a broad, general education, and only targeting training to specific occupations later in the post-secondary experience. In addition, education and workforce development have struggled to keep up with changing technologies and trends in industry, often lacking critical information about where career opportunities exist and what skills and abilities are necessary to take advantage of those options. As a result, education and training are often disconnected from real-time employer needs, and as a result, unemployed youth and adults often lack the necessary skills to enter those jobs that do exist, creating a growing class of disconnected or never connected workers.
Generally, most people will choose to have a short term car lease. However, some may want a car for a bit longer and that will lead them to the option of long term car leasing. With long term car leasing, you can lease the car for years, even until you eventually pay it off.
