Orthokine® is a therapy that was developed in human medicine by Orthogen (Duesseldorf, Germany) to effectively treat osteoarthritis of the knee. The therapy was translated into veterinary medicine as most horses experience certain degree of joint inflammation or osteoarthritis during their career. These pathologies can cut short a promising career of sport horses. So far few conventional therapies for joints could provide long-term efficacy. Orthokine®vet irap distributed by Medical Plus in UAE, Australia and New Zealand is an innovative, individual biological orthopedic therapy that became a game changer for veterinary medicine since 2005. The Orthokine®vet irap therapy, as scientifically proven, is a safe and long lasting anti-inflammatory therapy. During its process anti-inflammatory and regenerative substances are harvested from the patients blood and injected into the affected joint. Standard treatments do little more than block the pain of inflamed joints. The Orthokine®vet irap therapy may stop continuous cartilage degradation and creates an environment that is more conducive to regeneration of damaged tissue.
