To the Editor: We recently read a very interesting article by Su et al. in OOOOE about the in vitro release of growth factors from a Choukroun’s platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) clot after 5, 60, 120, and 300 minutes. The authors concluded that the initial release of the main growth factors was very important during the first minutes and therefore that the PRF membranes should be used as quickly as possible to get the best possible clinical results. That article confirmed our previously published… CONTINUE READING
