Abstract

PRP therapies are more complicated than previously acknowledged, and an understanding of the fundamental processes and pivotal molecules involved will hopefully be elucidated soon. This challenge is to provide a comprehensive description of the relationship between PRP components, healing mechanisms and clinical outcomes. Although PRP therapies in clinical trials await assessment, they have shed light on new avenues of management because of their effects on repair functions.
