An advancement in regenerative medicine.
The Equine Amnio Solutions line of products are made from equine amniotic membrane and fluid. The amniotic membrane and amniotic fluid nourish, maintain and protect a developing foal. Just as these tissues provide biologic and physiologic properties, acting as a physical barrier to cover and protect the fetus during pregnancy, the Equine Amnio Solutions line of products possess physical and physiological properties to cover and protect tissue.
Amniotic tissues contain a large array of bioactive substances such as collagen, adhesion molecules and growth factors recognized as important in the wound healing process¹. Published studies on the benefits and efficacy of amniotic tissue in wounds date back over 100 years².
Amniotic tissue has reported anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fibrotic properties3,4. Amniotic tissues are also thought to have “immune privilege”, reducing the risk of an adverse immune reaction5.
a tissue graft from a donor of the same species as the recipient but not genetically identical.
Where do the tissues come from?
At the time of delivery, the foal is delivered and the placenta and fluid, which are typically discarded, are saved. All tissues are then tested to ensure quality and safety.
Tissues are processed at EquiStem Technology, LLC following cGTP, and allografts are subjected to stringent USP testing prior to release.
