Invitation to Dog Owners


Elite rejuvenation research study seeks two older, healthy dogs for a unique study employing a complex cytokine matrix derived from human embryonic stem cells. This therapy involves a once a week multiple site subcutaneous injections for a year. The previous studies have demonstrated both in culture and in the mouse model prodigious changes in messenger RNA activity where the older phenotype becomes concordant in terms of its transcriptional activities to a younger animal. Owners of these older dogs which have to be at least 9 years of age without any previous cardiovascular, hepatic, renal, or autoimmune diseases will only qualify as subjects for this research project. Furthermore, these older dogs must have never had any type of tumors or cancers. Owners responsible for costs of pre and post- tests and one-year of medication (estimated $18,000). Would be very interested in working with licensed veterinarians on this innovative research project. Please contact Dr. Ron Shane drron73@gmail.com if you wish to be involved in this research endeavor.
