Scientists are now learning how to make stem cells from adult cells now!
3/15/2010 6:36:18 PM
As long as it does not include destroying embryos
3/15/2010 2:19:16 PM
I believe if it can help lead to a cure then it should be tried.
3/15/2010 1:26:56 AM
is this research promising?
3/14/2010 5:41:41 PM
only makes good sense
3/14/2010 4:30:24 PM
I am sure this would be another PMU travesty.
3/14/2010 3:06:52 AM
Faith-based opinion must nver blockhealth-care research. Take care of your own self.
3/13/2010 10:23:30 PM
If it will help heal a horse why not!!!!!
3/13/2010 6:21:58 PM
anything which help keep my horse health is a plus
3/13/2010 8:05:29 AM
We have already used this treatment on one of our jumpers, minimaly invasive, stunning results RSA
3/12/2010 7:32:04 PM
Let's go for it.But i'm not yet convinced it will be the panacea some claim.
3/12/2010 11:43:17 AM
Anything that furthers helping horses
3/12/2010 10:22:16 AM
why ever not?
3/12/2010 8:10:39 AM
What's to think about? Do it!
3/12/2010 12:46:14 AM
It has shown to be successful in humans.
3/12/2010 12:02:51 AM
Incredible results for some lameness injuries.
3/11/2010 10:40:27 PM
As long as the horse being treated is NOT suffering!
3/11/2010 9:59:23 PM
bring it on!
3/11/2010 9:37:50 PM
Research is benenficial for everyone
3/11/2010 8:01:58 PM
Stem cell therapies often produces tumors, so I'm not sure if I would use it right now.
3/11/2010 7:38:51 PM
Any scientific research is helpful; so many grounds can be covered with knowledge.
3/11/2010 4:36:21 PM
Why would anyone be against this?
3/11/2010 4:16:40 PM
3/11/2010 3:18:05 PM
Sure why not?
3/11/2010 2:48:33 PM
if it makes the animal healthy with no pain, great.
3/11/2010 2:42:09 PM
Let's take advantage of all that science can offer!
3/11/2010 2:16:07 PM
I DO NOT AGREE WITH RESEARCH IT'S A HARD DESICINE ACTUALLY A DIIFICULT ONE.THERE R PRO'S AND CON'S
3/11/2010 8:50:21 AM
if succeed good for our horses
3/11/2010 8:28:47 AM
I'm tired of messing with nature for human gain. Look at it through horses eyes
3/11/2010 8:12:46 AM
Very expensive. Two boarders did this - one horse recovered, other did not. Three treatments each.
3/11/2010 1:44:16 AM
I believe limited stem cell therapy has already been successful in horses.
3/10/2010 11:14:23 PM
If only the FDA would allow this treatment for humans.
3/10/2010 10:58:32 PM
i think we should go for it!
3/10/2010 8:26:43 PM
anything that will help is ok with me
3/10/2010 7:59:47 PM
Animals first-then who knows!
3/10/2010 6:41:13 PM
And humans, please.
3/10/2010 3:46:54 PM
Works wonderfully well
3/10/2010 3:42:32 PM
At this point, I'm in favor of it..but it still seems really new 2 me, perhaps more info :)
3/10/2010 3:04:17 PM
Any new research that is effective and saves lives must be tried.
3/10/2010 2:37:24 PM
It is amazing how quickly injuries are resolved w/Stem Cell tx.
3/10/2010 2:29:56 PM
Go for it, save the good ones
3/10/2010 12:46:29 PM
It might be wonderful but cost prohibitive for most horse owners
3/10/2010 12:18:56 PM
I've had UC Davis treat my yearling. It's made a difference.
3/10/2010 11:58:35 AM
In my opinion it would undoubtedly be a great leap forward in combating injuries to the horse
3/10/2010 8:21:15 AM
I don't know enough about it. If it actually helps than is might be a good thing
3/10/2010 8:08:58 AM
And in people. It's a good thing.
3/10/2010 7:56:23 AM
It has proved to be effective in dogs and cats.Why not horses and humans?
3/10/2010 7:54:50 AM
Use the latest medical research to give our horses the advantage of better medical care.
3/10/2010 1:41:44 AM
maybe it will help people realize how it can humans also
3/10/2010 12:59:31 AM
Who knows what they'll discover, but how many of us will be able to afford the resulting treatment
3/10/2010 12:14:08 AM
Stem cell research should be availavle to all mammals, invluding humans !
3/9/2010 11:35:14 PM
I think it would be great but cost prohibitive
3/9/2010 11:16:32 PM
If the science & technology is there... use it!!!
3/9/2010 10:20:04 PM
I have a horse w/leg condition that might benefit from stem cell therapy
3/9/2010 9:36:19 PM
Too bad humans don't benefit too.
3/9/2010 9:17:03 PM
Stem cell therapy has already saved the lives of many horses, and helped Lava Man.
3/9/2010 8:11:51 PM
had this done with our TB when he bowed healed fabulously
3/9/2010 7:45:17 PM
As long as its not human embryonic stem cells, then I say, Go for it!
3/9/2010 7:40:13 PM
if they do it for humans why not our horses
3/9/2010 7:23:55 PM
In favor for sure!
3/9/2010 6:41:22 PM
Great progress already, now we need it for cartilage replacement.
3/9/2010 6:37:19 PM
if it can save lives why not
3/9/2010 5:17:15 PM
anything that helps and doesn't cause pain i am for
3/9/2010 5:14:23 PM
In favor of it for humans too.
3/9/2010 5:13:52 PM
3/9/2010 5:05:11 PM
It's not ethical for people, and it's probably not ethical for horses.
3/9/2010 4:46:05 PM
great if you have the money
3/9/2010 4:40:07 PM
Anything that will facilitate healing should be used.
3/9/2010 4:38:57 PM
It has worked when all else failed.
3/9/2010 4:37:02 PM
I just hope the results will help not just the wealthy few !!
3/9/2010 4:28:30 PM
Don't know the current research and results.
3/9/2010 4:13:11 PM
More expensive options to make the small horse owner feel bad about the care they give to their hors
3/9/2010 3:58:22 PM
expensive, but I would do it for a good horse
3/9/2010 3:56:00 PM
Research on horses/other animals will likely be beneficial for humans at some point
3/9/2010 3:51:41 PM
No negatives; cells are from the horse they'll be used in; should be done this way for humans
3/9/2010 3:36:42 PM
I don't know enough about it to make an intelligent choice
3/9/2010 3:32:39 PM
Many new possibilities in vet and human medicine
3/9/2010 3:29:52 PM
my horse was treated with stem cells for a torn suspensory
3/9/2010 3:17:15 PM
Go for it, wave of the future.
3/9/2010 3:14:43 PM
The results have been promising so far.
3/9/2010 3:14:33 PM
-shows great promise, but needs more study & refinement
3/9/2010 3:13:19 PM
research is a good idea
3/9/2010 3:12:48 PM
No ethics are involved with horses, and maybe equine research will help humans.
3/9/2010 3:04:16 PM
just hope it eventually becomes more affordable
3/9/2010 3:02:07 PM
I have a young horse who ruptured his fascia - stem cell may be only option for productive life
3/9/2010 3:00:12 PM
Would first need to know the odds that this will have an impact on my horse.
3/9/2010 2:54:04 PM
Efficacy still inquestion, but I'd try it if nothing else worked.
3/9/2010 2:51:02 PM
3/9/2010 2:46:16 PM
Stem cell therapy is going to change equine and human medicine. Just don't go to embryonic research.
3/9/2010 2:34:54 PM
Im in favor of any thing that can help my equine partner
3/9/2010 2:27:02 PM
I've used it, it works.
3/9/2010 2:25:06 PM
I have seen it help one horse's injuries.
