Regenerative Medicine and Biological Treatments (2024)
Book Chapter
Guest, D., Schramme, M., & Smith, R. (2024). Regenerative Medicine and Biological Treatments. In Essential Facts of Equine Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine

Many tissues undergo poor natural regeneration following injury or disease and the reparative healing process can lead to tissues that are functionally inferior and prone to re-injury. Regenerative medicine aims to induce natural tissue regeneration... Read More about Regenerative Medicine and Biological Treatments.

A Functional Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism Upstream of the Collagen Type III Gene Is Associated with Catastrophic Fracture Risk in Thoroughbred Horses (2023)
Journal Article
Lago, E. P., Baird, A., Blott, S. C., Mcphail, R. E., Ross, A. C., Durward-Akhurst, S. A., & Guest, D. J. (2023). A Functional Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism Upstream of the Collagen Type III Gene Is Associated with Catastrophic Fracture Risk in Thoroughbred Horses. Animals, 14(1), 116. https://doi.org/10.3390/ani14010116

Fractures caused by bone overloading are a leading cause of euthanasia in Thoroughbred racehorses. The risk of fatal fracture has been shown to be influenced by both environmental and genetic factors but, to date, no specific genetic mechanisms unde...

Tumour necrosis factor alpha, Interleukin 1 beta and Interferon gamma have detrimental effects on equine tenocytes that cannot be rescued by IL-1RA or mesenchymal stromal cell-derived factors (2022)
Journal Article
Guest, D., Smith, E., Beaumont, R., McClellan, A., Sze, C., Palomino Lago, E., …Smith, R. (in press). Tumour necrosis factor alpha, Interleukin 1 beta and Interferon gamma have detrimental effects on equine tenocytes that cannot be rescued by IL-1RA or mesenchymal stromal cell-derived factors. Cell and Tissue Research, https://doi.org/10.1007/s00441-022-03726-6

Tendon injuries occur commonly in both human and equine athletes, and poor tendon regeneration leads to functionally deficient scar tissue and an increased frequency of re-injury. Despite evidence suggesting inadequate resolution of inflammation le...

Journal Article
Smith, E. J., Beaumont, R. E., Dudhia, J., & Guest, D. J. (0000). Equine Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Tenocytes are Insensitive to a Combination of Inflammatory Cytokines and Have Distinct Molecular Responses Compared to Primary Tenocytes. Stem Cell Reviews and Reports, https://doi.org/10.1007/s12015-024-10693-8

Tissue fibrosis following tendon injury is a major clinical problem due to the increased risk of re-injury and limited treatment options; however, its mechanism remains unclear. Evidence suggests that insufficient resolution of inflammation contribut...
