Amniotic tissues contain extracellular matrix proteins, growth factors, cytokines, carbohydrates, hyaluronic acid, and other elements which are essential for foal growth and development.
Just as the amniotic membrane and fluid provide biologic and physiologic properties and act as a physical barrier during pregnancy, RenoVō provides physical and physiological properties to cover and protect tissues.
The study, entitled "Efficacy and safety of an equine liquid amniotic tissue allograft on equine distal limb wound healing" is being conducted in conjunction with the university's Equine Surgery and Sports Medicine faculty.
Lead Investigator Mike J. Schoonover, DVM, MS, DACVS-LA, DACVSMR stated, "Oklahoma State is pleased to partner with EAS and its affiliates in a study of RenoVō. This is the first of several studies intended to evaluate the safety and clinical performance of the product in common horse injuries."
RenoVō® donor tissue is recovered following strict guidelines. Donors are healthy mares and tissues are collected without harm to the mare or foal.
At the time of delivery, the foal is delivered and the placenta and fluid, which are typically discarded, are saved. RenoVō® is subjected to stringent USP testing prior to release. The product is supplied in volumes of 1.5 cc, 3.0 cc and 5.0 cc.
