What is Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet RichPlasma (PRP) is blood plasma that contains a concentrated source of autologgous platelets. The platelets collected in PRP are activated by adding thrombin and calcium chloride which induces the release of these factors by degranulation of the alpha granules produced.
Growth factors and or cytokines present in PRP include: Connective tissue growth factor (wound healing)
Insulin-like growth factor 1 and 2 (ILGF)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (organ regeneration.
Epidermal growth factor (wound healing/aesthetics) (EGF) Interleuken 8 (ILGF)
Fibroblast growth factor (wound healing/aesthetics)
Keratinocyte growth factor (wound healing/aesthetics)
Transforming growth factor beta (TGFß)
