During Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd November the III Days of the García Cugat Foundation dedicated this time to advances in regenerative therapies will take place at the University of Córdoba. Friday’s session will have a practical character, is addressed to veterinarians and will be held from 16 hours at the Hospital Clinico Veterinario de Rabanales. The day on Saturday, addressed to doctors and veterinarians, will begin at 9 o’clock in the Rector’s hall.

Throughout both sessions researchers and specialists in the application of stem cells and Plasma Rich in Growth Factors will analyze advances in bioregenerative therapies, key to the future treatment in humans of degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis. In them more than a hundred medical and veterinary students will have the opportunity to train in these techniques considered “the medicine of the 21st century”.

Precisely the Spanish Medicines Agency has just made public a report in which it points out the value of Growth Factors as a therapy and standardizes their application. The decision is the result of a decade of research and clinical experimentation in biological medicine. Some of the key research on these treatments, in animals and humans, has been carried out within the framework of the García Cugat Foundation which develops research in regenerative medicine and advanced therapies based on biology since 2004. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Córdoba collaborates with the Foundation, since 2008, in various scientific projects, including research for the treatment of tendon injuries.

Ramón Cugat, a leading specialist in sports traumatology, will inaugurate the meeting – coordinated by Juan Manuel Domínguez, of the Department of Medicine and Animal Surgery of the University of Córdoba – with a lecture on “Stem Cells: a new path in traumatology”.
