Definition of PRP also known as platelet-rich plasma. A common treatment that can be easily misinterpreted as cell therapy.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is is an autologous source of platelet-derived growth factor and transforming growth factor beta that is obtained by sequestering and concentrating platelets by gradient density centrifugation. In other words blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing of soft tissue. Clinical applications have confirmed the efficacy of PRP as a treatment for sports injuries, musculoskeletal or nerve injuries, the accelerated healing of bone grafts, and the reductions of androgenic hair loss.
