Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a blood plasma concentrate enriched with platelet count above the baseline of whole blood prepared from patient’s own blood or from a healthy donor’s blood. There are different types of PRP, categorised on the basis of source of blood and end-product type.
Autologous PRP is a cost-effective, quick, and easy production method involving lower threat of disease transfusion as it is prepared from patient’s own blood, thus leading to its widespread adoption. Autologous PRP has been increasingly used in treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, especially in the treatment of sports-related injuries.
Allogenic PRP is prepared using blood from well-characterised donors. Allogeneic PRP helps generate more consistent and reliable therapeutic effect and also helps avoid taking large quantities of blood from patient.
Homologous platelet rich plasma is a concentrated form of blood derived from blood relatives.
