Platelet rich plasma (PRP) also known as Autologous Conditioned Plasma is a concentrate of platelet rich plasma proteins derived from whole blood and centrifuged to remove red blood cells. The plasma proteins are then injected on the diseased area to promote a better healing and for the enhancement of growth factors.
As a concentrated source of blood plasma and autologous conditioned plasma, PRP contains several different growth factors and cytokines. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used clinically since 1970’s. Recent advances in methods for PRP preparation and use have made it possible for surgeons to take advantage of this concentrated form of growth factors and cytokines that are naturally present in blood clots.
The concept is attractive because the patient’s own blood is used, limiting the potential for transmission. This is also a major limitation to the predictability of PRP as a therapeutic modality. The composition of PRP varies from patient to patient and may also vary with the device used or interacts with other biologies or materials.
Effective use of PRP requires an understanding of exactly what it is. When an injury occurs, platelets release factors with the clot that stimulate the recruitment of mesenchymal cells to the site and promote their proliferation.These factors also stimulate angiogenesis.
Major components of PRP include transforming growth factor beta (TGF-Bs), Platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), Insulin-like growth factor (IGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2). TGF-B1, IGF-1 and PDGF stimulate proliferation of mesenchymal cells. TGF-B1 in particular stimulates extracellular matrix production including collagen.
These factors are important for stabilizing tissue during the initial phases of tissue repair but they can also lead to fibrous connective tissue and scar formation. VEGF and FGF-2 are important for stimulating new blood vessel formation to bring nutrients and progenitor cells to the site. Additional factors are needed for stabilization of the neovasculature. Thus PRP must be considered as an adjunctive therapy for specific application.
