Sydney-based regenerative therapy company Regeneus has announced that its CryoShot Canine product with be manufactured by Lonza for registration in the US.
“We view this as the start of a long-term relationship in which Lonza will manufacture CryoShot for the world wide canine market,” said head of veterinary health Dr Duncan Thomson in a statement.
“Our clinical trial work in Australia has been rewarding and it is now time to begin registration of the CryoShot product in the US and European markets.”
The manufacture of the musculoskeletal treatment products will take place at Lonza’s Walkersville, Maryland site.
Regeneus’s HiQCell stem cell treatment uses a donor’s own fat cells and has been used on humans to treat arthritic conditions. Its CryoShot and AdiCell products treat dogs and horses in a similar way.
“Our primary focus is musculoskeletal ailments, mostly osteoarthritis and tendinopathy,” Regeneus says on its website.
“Osteoarthritis is a common disease affecting one in five animals.”
