Regenerative Therapy With Platelets
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is used to treat soft tissue injuries and advanced osteoarthritis. Platelets, long recognized for their role in clot formation, have recently been shown to contain high concentrations of growth factors that influence cell proliferation at the site of an injury.
There are many growth factors with varying responsibilities. Cumulatively, however, they accelerate tissue and wound healing and can therefore deliver a powerful therapeutic cocktail when injected into inflamed or injured tissue to enhance tissue recovery.
The clot forms a scaffold for healing while the growth factors call in the cells necessary to reconstruct damaged tissues.
Injecting PRP into a damaged tendon or ligament results in a similar scaffold formation.
ProVet For Horses
ProVet PRP is a regenerative system for equine athletes. The growth factors found in ProVet PRP both reduce recovery time and facilitate more effective tissue healing. The ProVet system is an innovation in autologous cellular therapies featuring a process that delivers platelets, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory proteins in a stall side system requiring less than 3 minutes.
