Over ¾ of dogs older than two years have a varying degree of disease of the oral mucosa and periodontal tissue. Despite wide access to a number of specimens and drugs used in veterinary dentistry for treatment and prophylaxis, new active substances are constantly sought. The use of MIC-1 stem cells that are derived from the antlers of the red deer (Cervus elaphus) and are
extracted into cell cultures gives new regenerative possibilities. This study was carried out as part of a larger project and enabled the assessment of the usefulness of the
antlerogenic stem cell homogenate in canine dentistry. This study was conducted as a part of the UOD-DEM- 1-352/001 project sponsored by the National Center for Research and Development.
Keywords: antlerogenic stem cells, dogs, regenerative medicine, veterinary stomatology.
