The Effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma Formulations and Blood Products on Human Synoviocytes Implications for Intra-articular Injury and Therapy

Abstract

Background: The effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) on chondrocytes has been studied in cell and tissue culture, but considerably less attention has been given to the effect of PRP on synoviocytes. Fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) compose 80% of the normal human synovium and produce cytokines and matrix metalloproteinases that can mediate cartilage catabolism.
