    Author(s): John Donecker*, Michelle Fabiani, Lorrie C and Karanvir Singh Aulakh

    The radionuclide 117mSn (tin-117m) embedded in a homogeneous colloid is a novel Radio Synovi Orthesis (RSO) device for Intra-Articular (IA) administration to treat synovial inflammation and mitigate Osteo Arthritis (OA) in dogs. A study to evaluate tin-117m colloid treatment response in dogs with OA was conducted at two centers, the School of Veterinary Medicine at Louisiana State University, and at a referral practice in Houston, Texas. The tin-117m colloid was administered per-protocol to 14 client-owned dogs with radio graphically confirmed grade 3 OA in one or both elbow joints. Dog owners and attending clinicians assessed the level of pain at Base Line (BL) and the posttreatment pain response at 90-day intervals for one year. Owners assessed treatment response according to a Pain Severity Score (PSS) and a Pain Interference Score (PIS) as defined by the Cani.. View More»
