Therapeutic Use Exemption for PRP in Muscle Injuries

It has been unclear in the media and in the literature if the World Anti-Doping Agency has banned platelet rich plasma for intramuscular injection.  There is a need to better understand their position.

Via BloodCure sources, we have definitely determined that PRP is LEGAL to be used via the intramuscular route with a therapeutic use exemption, also known as a TUE.  To my knowledge there is NO data suggesting PRP is anabolic for skeletal muscle injuries in humans.  If there is any specific data out there please post it here.



Athletes of all kinds need to know PRP may be an option for them if they apply for the appropriate exemption.  As always, check with the governing body of your chosen sport and consult with your physicians to best determine if it is appropriate.

When you are told that you have a low blood platelet count or level, it basically means that your blood does not have the normal clotting abilities that blood should have or that your blood has a low level for fighting infection.

PRP is a cure-all for aging problems. It comes with excellent healing properties to improve the skin tone and texture. By injecting platelet rich plasma into areas that show visible aging signs like cheeks and mid-face, jaw, back of the hands, neckline or scalp in hair growth cases, the body is sent into regeneration mode. As we attain the higher age certain parts of our bodies start degrading like production of collagen and elastic – these are two components responsible for keeping skin firm. For aging and wrinkles prevention you can also consider Botox that is widely accepted by many Hollywood biggies. You can head to Botox Clinic Hollywood for prescribed drugs and injections.
