OPTIMIZED PLATELET RICH FIBRIN WITH THE LOW SPEED CONCEPT: GROWTH FACTOR RELEASE, BIOCOMPATIBILITY AND CELLULAR RESPONSE

This study characterizes how centrifugation speed (G-force) along with centrifugation time influence growth factor release from fibrin clots, as well as the cellular activity of gingival fibroblasts exposed to each PRF matrix.

ADVANCED PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN: A NEW CONCEPT FOR CELL-BASED TISSUE ENGINEERING BY MEANS OF INFLAMMATORY CELLS

Choukroun ́s PRF (platelet- rich fibrin) is obtained from blood without adding anticoagulants. In this study, protocols of S-PRF and A-PRF were compared to establish the effects of the centrifugal force on the distribution of cells relevant for wound healing and tissue regeneration.

EFFECTS OF AN INJECTABLE PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN ON OSTEOBLAST BEHAVIOUR AND BONE TISSUE FORMATION IN COMPARISON TO PLATELET-RICH PLASMA

A novel platelet concentrate has recently been developed with no additives by utilizing lower centrifugation speeds. The purpose of this study was therefore to investigate osteoblast behaviour of this novel therapy (injectable-platelet-rich fibrin; i-PRF, 100% natural with no additives) when compared to traditional PRP.

THREE-DIMENSIONAL ARCHITECTURE AND CELL COMPOSITION OF A CHOUKROUN’S PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN CLOT AND MEMBRANE

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF; Choukroun’s technique) is a second-generation platelet concentrate for surgical use. The purposes of this study were to determine the cell composition and three-dimensional organization of this autologous biomaterial and to evaluate the influence of different collection tubes (dry glass or glass-coated plastic tubes) and compression procedures (forcible or soft) on the final PRF-membrane architecture.
