This is from 2002, but interesting that they studied fetlock breakdown. Anyone know the results from this study?

Easy Print from "USE OF STEM CELLS FOR CARTILAGE REPAIR TO COMBAT ARTHRITIS AND STRESS-INDUCED BREAKDOWN Dr. Alan J. Nixon, Cornell University. First year, $50,749. Stems cells answer the body's call for repair of tissues such as muscle, tendon, bone, and fat as well as cartilage. The specific aim of this project is to use stem-cell based cartilage resurfacing to lessen arthritis and stress-induced fetlock breakdown."
