FCGS Clinical Trial
WHAT IS FCGS?
Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis (FCGS) is a severe and painful inflammatory disease involving the mouth and gums of cats. In most cases, the disease causes ulcers at the back of the mouth, tongue, gums, and occasionally the lips. FCGS affects cats of any age or breed.
WHAT IS DENTAHEAL?
DentaHeal is a stem cell-based product for the treatment of FCGS. This cell therapy may help to correct abnormalities associated with FCGS in cats. In this investigational clinical trial, we are evaluating the safety and effectiveness of using stem cells to treat cats with FCGS that have not had success with other treatments.
WHY CELL THERAPY?
Currently, there is no FDA-approved cell therapy product for treating FCGS. In the past eight years, there have been investigational clinical trials using feline adult stem cells for therapy of FCGS.
With more than 45 patients treated using investigational MSC therapies at UC Davis, approximately 70% have responded favorably to the treatment, either experiencing complete resolution or substantial clinical improvement, and these patients have remained in remission.
