A-PRP® Therapy is a promising solution to accelerate healing of tendon injuries1 and osteoarthritis,2 naturally without subjecting the patient to significant risk.
The philosophy is to merge cutting edge technology with the body’s natural ability to heal.
Depending on a patient’s individual condition, a series of 1 to 3 injections may be required.
Intra-articular A-PRP®injections for symptomatic early stages of knee osteoarthritis induce significant reduction in pain and improvement in function after 12 months, which can be further improved at 18 months by annual repetition of the treatment3.
Biological composites made of Stem Cells-Growth Factors-Scaffolds are an excellent solution in challenging post-traumatic and degenerative cases4.
The bone marrow is known to be rich in a heterogeneous population ofmature and pluripotent stem cells (BMC’s: Bone Marrow Stem Cells).
Combined with Autologous Thrombin Serum (ATS) to form an autologousBiological Glue it is used for prosthetic implant bio integration and bone reconstruction5.
The bone marrow microenvironment, or medullary stroma, harbours, in addition to the well known blood cell progenitors (hematopoietic stem cells, HSCs), various immature cells such as mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s, which are the musculoskeletal cell precursors), pre-adipocytes, endothelial progenitor cells, etc.
Many studies have demonstrated the involvement of bone marrow stem cells in tissue regeneration in a variety of clinical domains6-9.
The autologous cell concentrate obtained from bone marrow aspirate, through the use of RegenKit Extracell BMC, can be infused directly in liquid form in the region to be treated or can be seeded in biological scaffolds of various types (membranes, platelet gel, autologous tissue grafts or allografts).
