OBJECTIVE Platelet activation and subsequent release of granules containing a variety of growth factors, at the site of injury, is crucial for the wound healing process. We postulated that a platelet-mediated paracrine effect may accelerate the healing process after myocardial infarction. METHODS Allogenic platelet-rich and platelet-poor plasma (PRP and PPP) were collected from 15 healthy male Wistar rats. After thrombin activation, the level of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in… CONTINUE READING
