Antimicrobial Properties of Platelet-Rich Plasma (Prp)

Article excerpt

Background: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is regarded as a portion of the plasma fraction having high platelet concentration. It has attracted great attention and has been increasingly used for a variety of clinical applications including orthopedic surgeries, periodontal and oral surgeries, maxillofacial surgeries, plastic surgeries, and sports medicine. More recently, the antibacterial properties of PRP against various bacteria have been assayed whether in vitro or in vivo and the results ranged from very active to completely inactive. Therefore, it suggests that PRP may contain different bioactive compartments using which there is a hope to overcome the current antibiotic resistances. The interest of identifying and purifying these agents is still increasing. The aim of this study is to review the antimicrobial effect of PRP.

Methods: By having a comprehensive literature survey and especial focus on the practicability of the study, the antimicrobial properties and applications of PRP is discussed here along with its mechanisms of actions and also the promising future trends of this issue. …
