FAQ’s

Select a question below to find the answer

What actually is Regenesis Vet?

Regenesis Vet is a growth factor therapy product developed through our proprietary system of processing autologous blood. Through this, we are able to create a natural (non-doping) product that leverages off the body’s ability to heal itself.

What makes the Regenesis Vet system so unique?

The Regenesis Vet system is the first commercially-available systemic (whole-body) regenerative equine treatment derived from a unique system of processing autologous blood. To date, all other Regenerative treatments that have been developed have been done so for local (injury-site) use.

The Regenesis Vet system has been developed and subsequently improved by leading biomedical scientists. Through this, an intricate proprietary activation enzyme solution has been developed which enables us to both target and extract specific growth factors in the blood without damaging the said growth factors in the process. Although the process is slightly different, the end product is comparable to Platelet Lysate in terms of the number of growth factors that can be extracted. Regenesis is the first and only system in the world that has the technology to produce a Platelet Lysate product without an extensive freeze-thaw process.

What benefits can one expect from Regenesis Vet?

To date we have processed over 1 000 injections. The most common feedback we receive in terms of how horses have benefited from Regenesis is outlined below:

  • Improvement in condition, coat and muscle tone
  • Improved immune and stress related responses
  • Improved suppleness and soundness
  • Less frequent use of invasive treatments (e.g. Intra-articular injections)
  • Improved performance
  • Faster recovery after exercise

Although Regenesis Vet EGF has been shown to be beneficial for many horses, please note that it is not a substitute for a balanced diet, a good farrier, a suitable work programme, physio, issue-specific injections or a holistic management program designed by your vet.

Is my horse suited for Regenesis Vet?

It is best to discuss with your veterinarian as to the suitability of Regenesis Vet for your horse. Find the full list of our partnering veterinarians here.

Is Regenesis Vet doping free?

Yes. Regenesis-Vet meets the non-doping criteria as per the guidelines from the FEI & Jockey Club.

How often does my horse need to receive Regenesis Vet?

The frequency of Regenesis Vet treatments may differ from horse to horse. Some vets may choose to put horses on a once-off course, whilst others may advise that horses receive Regenesis Vet EGF on a monthly basis.

It is imperative that you work with your veterinarian to design a Regenesis Vet treatment plan that is tailor-made to you and your horse’s needs. This is to ensure that the maximum benefit is derived from the treatments on a case-by-case basis. Find the full list of our partnering veterinarians here.

Is Regenesis Vet a Veterinarian or a Vet Practice?

No, Regenesis Vet is not a veterinarian or a vet practice. Regenesis Vet is a division of Novita Biotechnology, a medical device company registered with SAHPRA, that specialises in cutting edge affordable niche healthcare products. Please note, Regenesis Vet EGF is exclusively available through veterinarians.  Find the full list of our partnering veterinarians here.

Are there any risks associated with Regenesis Vet?

Although autologous blood products are generally considered very safe, with any medical procedure, there is always the risk of side effects. As with many treatments, Regenesis Vet EGF can illicit an immune response within the horse’s body and as such, although uncommon, minor side effects can occur. It is for this reason that it is imperative that your vet is involved in the administration of any and all treatments such that should any side effects occur, they can be appropriately managed.

Can I use Regenesis Vet instead of supplements?

Regenesis Vet has been extensively used as an alternative to oral joint and muscle supplements by many. In order to see the success of Regenesis Vet as a supplement replacer, see our testimonials here. Please consult with your vet to ensure that Regenesis would be a suitable alternative and/or additive to your horse’s current supplement regime.

How does the end product of the Regenesis Vet system differ from that of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

The Regenesis Vet EGF product differs substantially from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Firstly, the Regenesis Vet system is a form of targeted Growth Factor Therapy, where PRP is simply concentrating blood platelets (and with some systems activating them). Those platelets then slowly release various growth factors over ± 7 days at the injury site after they have been injected. What these growth factors are and how they are released one cannot control with normal PRP systems. Secondly, the Regenesis Vet EGF product is indicated for systemic (whole-body) use, whilst PRP is indicated for local (injury-site) use.

Adding to the above, the Regenesis Vet system in comparison targets 4-5 very specific growth factors that are involved in the regeneration process and harvests a cascade of them in one go. This is essentially done by “breaking open” the platelets in a unique way that allows the targeted growth factors to be liberated without being damaged. The technology used to achieve this is significantly more advanced compared to PRP and unique to the Regenesis Vet system. Through this, the targeted growth factors are made available immediately rather than a whole host of different growth factors (some of which are undesirable) being slowly released by platelets over ±7 days as is the case with PRP. Although the technology and process involved is very different, the end product of the Regenesis system is in some ways comparable to Platelet Lysate in terms of growth factor yield, but without the extensive and difficult freeze-thaw process.

How does Regenesis Vet differ to other regenerative treatments like IRAP and PRP?

Current regenerative treatments such as Interlukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein (IRAP) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are indicated for local (injury-site) use. Regenesis Vet EGF is indicated for systemic (whole body) use either via intravenous or intramuscular injection as per your vet’s recommendation.
