Giraffe Calf Gets Stem Cell Therapy After ‘Setbacks’

Outlet: Ch. 4, Denver

Ch. 4, Denver: “For this reason, two veterinarians from Colorado State University were in attendance the night of Penny’s birth, ready to take her placenta back to CSU to begin growing stem cells. This was done with the intention of helping other giraffes in the future, because stem cell therapy has been shown to potentially treat muscle and joint conditions and possibly prevent chronic diseases,” officials explained.
