New AKC Health Foundation Funded Study - CCL Rupture - Plasma Collagen

Use of a platelet rich plasma-collagen scaffold to stimulate healing of cruciate rupture in dogs
"Current surgical treatments are stabilization procedures that do not directly treat the damaged or ruptured ligament. Our main goal is to develop a safe and effective therapy that will prevent progressive tearing of ligament fibers, enable ligament healing, and block arthritis progression in affected dogs."
