United Nations and Platelet Rich Plasma

AM at the United Nations

This week Dr. Allan Mishra presented his platelet rich plasma research at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. The lecture was part of a worldwide conference on stem cells and regenerative medicine. Researchers, clinicians and government ministers from the United States, Dubai, Japan, Sinapore, Australia, Italy, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Spain, England, Turkey, Brazil and even Kazakhstan were in attendance.

The BioBridge meeting included the researchers from Kyoto Japan who are pioneering the use of induced pluripotential stem cells (an alternative to embryonic stem cells) and several physicians using platelet rich plasma (PRP) for dermatologic, traumatic and degenerative conditions. Data from the meeting suggests PRP is ahead of stem cells as a therapeutic biologic agent in terms of applications and safety.

The meeting was a collaborative and inspiring international event. The relationships established and the sharing of data will hopefully lead to future multi-disciplinary discoveries.

What is your experience with PRP and Ligaments? Does PRP therapy actually degrade the tissue at some point in the healing process as in prolotherapy or not? Please respond to this post Dr. Mishra. I'm very interested to know if PRP can solve ligament laxity problems. Thanks.
