Intervertebral disc regeneration using plateletrich plasmacontaining bone marrowderived mesenchymal stem cells: A preliminary investigation

By London Spine

Plateletrich plasma (PRP) is a promising strategy for intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD). However, the short halflife of growth factors released from PRP cannot continuously stimulate the degenerated discs. Thus, the present study hypothesized that the combined use of PRP and bone marrowderived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) may repair the early degenerated discs in the long…
