Alpha2EQ provides the highest level of concentration of α2M in plasma available on the market today — up to five times more than naturally occurring levels. It is an orthobiologic device, which uses biological substances to help musculoskeletal injuries heal quicker. Orthobiologics are used to improve the healing of fractured bones and injured muscles, tendons and ligaments and are derived from substances that are naturally found in the body. Alpha2EQ is powered by the advanced, patented AlphaActive Concentrate Process.
Our breakthrough technology is based upon a naturally occurring molecule within the body. With Alpha2EQ, veterinarians can process and treat in just one hour with an uncomplicated three-step, minimally invasive procedure.
The single-treatment, concentrated power of Alpha2EQ relieves lameness, inflammation and joint pain often for up to one year. However, there are several mitigating factors to the efficacy of the therapy, including the horse’s metabolism and the severity of the horse’s joint disease.
Risks may be considered inherent with any procedure or injection to a joint with any substance. However, there are no side effects to the orthobiologic procedure or Alpha-2 Macroglobulin when administered into a joint. Unlike steroid injection, there are no known long-term risks of Alpha2EQ therapy. It is also safe to use in joints that have previously been injected with other biologics or steroids.
In a study, Alpha2EQ was found to be safe after 50 horses across five equine hospitals received joint injections for a variety of orthopedic conditions.
Alpha2EQ is the only orthobiologic device that is proven to isolate and concentrate α2M from plasma, intensifying the all-natural healing proteins of the horse’s own blood.
AlphaActive is a highly improved process leveraging PRP methodology derivative of Platelet Poor Plasma (PPP) that concentrates plasma proteins from the equine patient’s own blood. Alpha2EQ provides the highest level of concentration of α2M in plasma available on the market today — up to five times more than naturally occurring levels.
Yes, this product is not contraindicated after using other orthobiologic therapies. It is an excellent choice to treat inflammation and normalizing an inflammatory environment as a pretreatment for regenerative therapies such as PRP and Stem Cells. Your veterinarian can discuss with you a treatment plan with Alpha2EQ.
We always recommend that you check with your veterinarian to discuss both a diagnosis and treatment plan. If your vet has any questions about Alpha2EQ, please share with them what you’ve discovered about the power of concentrated Alpha-2 Macroglobulin (α2m).
The results of the treatment can be observed within a few days of the procedure and have long-lasting effects of 6 or 12 months. Our process provides enough concentrate for 3-6 injections, depending on the injury site and veterinary technique. Excess concentrated α2M product can be frozen for future treatments.
Excess α2M from the injectate bag can be frozen for future treatments.
We are a biotechnology company specializing in the development of diagnostics and therapeutics for osteoarthritis (OA), a disease of the joints that renders the afflicted immobile and in constant pain within the veterinarian space.
Glad you asked! Our name, Astaria, is pronounced “as-tar-ree-a” and is derived from a mash-up of the word “astra”, from the Latin etymology meaning “journey to the stars” and combined with the Latin “aria” meaning orchestral accompaniment. Thus, the name comes to mean “coming together in pursuit of something greater.” The journey of science led us to an amazing discovery that we are excited to share with the equine and companion animal lovers all over the world.
Our patented and advanced plasma technology isolates and concentrates the Alpha-2 Macroglobulin molecule. This is called the Alpha ActiveTM Concentrate Process. Our orthobiologic therapies use this process, which is specifically designed for inflammation and degeneration of joints in horses and companion animals. Alpha2EQ is specifically designed for horses; thus the “EQ” stands for equine in the name. We liked the idea of something simple, descriptive and easy to remember.
We currently have product available in the USA, and have plans for additional markets in the not-so-distant future. We have lots of interest and are in discussions with selling product in Europe and Western Asia. Have an idea you would like to discuss? Feel free to reach out!
