This animal study (domestic pig) examined the bone formation after filling defined defects with autogenous bone or a collagen lyophilisat in combination with Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) by evaluating bone matrix proteins. Six groups, both materials with and without PRP in two concentrations (+ 1, + 2) were compared to untreated bone by means of… CONTINUE READING
