Summary

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) is a set of autologous platelet products used to reduce pain and speed up recovery from injury while maintaining the tissue function. Its basic rationale is to mimic yet enhance the natural processes of healing by bringing to the injury site a set of molecules that will accelerate functional recovery, and even regenerate the tissue. In the array of PRP-products, Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF)-Endoret is a pioneering autologous regenerative technology with multiple therapeutic potentials.
