MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OTCQB: (PETV) PetVivo Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: PETV) an emerging biomedical device company focused on the commercialization of innovative medical therapeutics for pets is pleased to announce the entry into a sponsored research agreement with Colorado State University (“CSU”) College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences to engage in a clinical study involving the treatment of osteoarthritis in canines through the administration of PetVivo’s proprietary medical device, KUSH®.
Felix Duerr, DVM, associate professor of small animal orthopedics, will serve as Principal Investigator for the research project. Dr. Duerr established and now oversees CSU’s Orthopedic Medicine and Mobility program. His clinical interests include sports medicine and rehabilitation, and minimally invasive surgery, including arthroscopy.
“The study designed by the team is novel and he hopes the research will lead to new ways to treat osteoarthritis, which affects up to 20% of all dogs, no matter the age,” said Dr. Duerr.
KUSH is a medical device that is administered by intraarticular injection in afflicted joints of animals, such as dogs and horses, for the treatment of osteoarthritis. The product is intended to provide a lubricious cushion between the bones to reinforce cartilage. A primary objective of PetVivo is to commercialize beneficial medical device products, such as KUSH, to further enhance the lives and happiness of companion animals and their owners.
