MediVet’s Nano Technology compliments a focus on developing and commercializing innovative therapies that improve lives. Recognizing the change in the animal healthcare industry this technology increases the efficacy, continued learning experience and hands on access to veterinary regenerative medicine. Nano technology will lead to new and novel applications while providing our university partners with more certainty about the placement and life span of cells.
MediVet Nanoscaffolding helps control growth of cell reparation and expansion rates by significant improvement of recovery time. Consisting of 100% FDA-approved polymers, scaffolding is accepted as native tissue without need for immune system or white cell response.
The Medi-Patch NanoWound Care in combination with MediVet Platelet-Rich Plasma provides a site dressing that utilizes blood-derived growth factors and proteins to achieve optimal healing potential using autologous biological methods. Platelets play an important role in wound healing by providing initial hemostasis and release mediators to help modulate the inflammatory response and many of the cellular functions involved in wound healing.
The MediVet NanoWound Care is ideal for many trauma cases including:
- Degloving Injuries -Animal Bite Wounds
- Burn Care -Acute Laceration and Puncture Wounds
- Surgical Wounds -Abrasions
Aside from the new MediVet NanoScaffold and MediPatch NanoWound Care products, many other custom tissue engineering nanoproducts are available through MediVet. These custom 3-dimensional biodegradable products are available in a variety of sizes for large and small animals. This revolutionary medical advance is capable for providing suitable scaffolding for a variety of applications—both traumatic and atraumatic:
- Endothelial tissue
- Wound care-grafts
- Surgical mesh
Before and After treatments
The dog pictured below was to undergo a skin graft or amputation due to the severity of the injury. The infected wound spanned three quarters length around the leg and is shown below. The prescribing veterinarian simply pulled venous blood, used the (MediVet PRP) kit to isolate healing growth factors from the platelets (Platelet Rich Plasma), painted the patch with the PRP.
The veterinarian adhered the patch to the wound, dressed the area with bandages and instructed the owner to keep the area as dry as possible. Over the course of eight weeks the images speak for themselves.
Week 4 & Week 8
The MediVet NanoScaffold matrix consists of FDA-approved injectable polymers that are 1/200th the size of a strand of human hair. These MediWhiskers align to guide cell orientation, cell migration, and/or modify mechanical properties, which increases cellular localization in area of ailment. When combined with stem cells and injected into areas with arthritis, joint damage, or muscular adhesions, etc., in vivo re-absorption period is approximately 6 weeks.
