Effects of calcium and thrombin on growth factor release from platelet concentrates: kinetics and regulation of endothelial cell proliferation.

Abstract

Platelet concentrates (PCs) constitute new biological mediators used in osseous reconstructive surgery. In this study, we assessed (i) the effects of various concentrations of calcium and thrombin on the kinetics of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF-BB), transforming growth factor-beta1(TGF-beta 1), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), and vascular… (More)
