Cell Characterisation

Lipogems® Contains more Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs), Pericytes and Transitional Pericytes than Lipoaspirate. Due to the intact vascular stromal niche Lipogems® acts as a natural scaffold preserving activated MSCs.

We can find Pericytes in Adipose Tissue 

Pericytes exist in adipose tissue niche wrapped around capillaries within adipocyte clusters; Pericytes react to signals from injury or damage 

Lipogems® VS Adipose Tissue


Lipogems® samples show a maintained vascular stroma consisting of slit-like capillaries containing vascular channels with evident lumina; on the contrary, conventionally treated fat tissue shows compressed and distorted microchannels.



Lipogems® Canine takes the science of Lipogems® International SPA and has shown that its application in numerous trials in human medicine has had huge success in the treatment of a range of common conditions and diseases in dogs. There is a huge amount of science and research behind what the Lipogems® Canine team are able to apply to your best friend. Here are just some of the more in depth details about how the science works. To see the outcomes of some of the cases that have been treated in the click here.

Damage Response Mechanism

Lipogems® Preserves viable elements with Pericyte identity which, after an injury detach from the capillaries and gradually convert into activated Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs).


The Lipogems® process acts as a replica of damage to cells in a trauma situation encouraging cells to behave as if an injury has occurred.

The Science Behind Lipogems® 

Professor Arnold Caplan 


Is “The father of the MSC”, in this clip he explains how this new branch of science works.
"You are ALIVE because you continuously renew (rejuvenate) various tissues/organs. Within the body, cells of the skin, gut, and blood, among others come to maturation, function for a time and then expire to be replaced by a continuous stream of cells which renew the tissue."
Professor Arnold I. Caplan, Ph.D (2008)​, Skeletal Research Center, Case Western Reserve University and NJ Symp Biomat & Regen Med
 

Lipogems® Canine is a new innovative application of regenerative technology available from referral veterinary surgeons for a range of conditions including orthopaedic and soft tissue injuries and diseases including osteoarthritis. Veterinary treatment for you dog can be considered by asking your first referral veterinary surgeon to refer your case to one of our centres. To find a referral centre click here.  #lipogemscanine
