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.
