Background: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) refers to an enriched platelet suspension in plasma. In addition to the clinical application of PRP in the context of various orthopedic diseases and beyond, PRP and platelet lysate (PL) have been in focus in the field of tissue engineering. In this review, we discuss the application of PRP as a cell culture supplement and as part of tissue engineering strategies, particularly emphasizing current hurdles and ambiguities regarding the efficacy of PRP in…

Studies on platelet rich plasma - new editorial policy for “Platelets”
TLDR
Although the trial demonstrated that PRP did not enhance healing or quality of life over placebo, it was demonstrated that the majority of patients in the treatment arm received an optimal L-PRP standardized preparation containing a high concentration of platelets and expected growth factor contents.
Autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma (CuteCell PRP) Safely Boosts In Vitro Human Fibroblast Expansion.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an autologous culture system with the patient's own platelet-rich plasma is an efficient, cost-effective, and safe supplement for fibroblast culture.
Platelet‐rich plasma‐derived extracellular vesicles: A superior alternative in regenerative medicine?
TLDR
The latest progress in PRP‐EVs as a superior alternative cell‐free therapeutic strategy in regenerative medicine is summarized, their underlying molecular mechanisms are clarified, and the advantages and limitations of the upcoming clinical applications are discussed.
The Opportunities and Challenges regarding Induced Platelets from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells
TLDR
Although the production and functions of iPlatelets are close to meeting clinical application requirements in both quantity and quality, there is still a long way to go for their large-scale production and clinical application.
Platelet-Rich Plasma for the Treatment of Tissue Infection: Preparation and Clinical Evaluation.
TLDR
Preclinical and clinical findings regarding the application of PRP in the prevention and treatment of wound and bone infection are summarized and the use of biocompatible PRP may be advantageous for tissue infection treatment due to its inherent antibacterial and healing promoting properties.
The state of the art and future of PRP therapy
TLDR
The potential beneficial effects of PRP exerted by producing a local environment for tissue regeneration are supported by in vitro studies that demonstrate many positive effects on wound healing.
Comparison of Allogeneic Platelet-rich Plasma With Autologous Platelet-rich Plasma for the Treatment of Diabetic Lower Extremity Ulcers
TLDR
Both al- PRP and au-PRP could effectively and safely promote wound healing in patients with DLEUs and could be used for DLE Us as an off-the-shelf solution when au-prP is limited.
Injectable gelatin microspheres loaded with platelet rich plasma improve wound healing by regulating early inflammation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that GMs are an injectable carrier that enhanced the therapeutic effects of PRP and has the potential to improve wound healing.

The effect of leukocyte-reduced platelet-rich plasma on the proliferation of autologous adipose-tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells.
TLDR
Findings clearly demonstrate considerable differences between three PRP separation settings and assist in safeguarding the combination of leukocyte-reduced PRP and stem cells for regenerative therapies.
Preparation of pooled human platelet lysate (pHPL) as an efficient supplement for animal serum-free human stem cell cultures.
TLDR
This protocol presents a practicable procedure to generate a pool of human platelet lysate (pHPL) derived from routinely produced platelet rich plasma (PRP) of forty to fifty single blood donations by several freeze/thaw cycles to avoid extensive aggregate formation and deplete potential antigens.
An In Vitro Investigation of Platelet-Rich Plasma-Gel as a Cell and Growth Factor Delivery Vehicle for Tissue Engineering.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that PRP-gels represent a suitable carrier for both cell and GF delivery for tissue engineering and the platelet concentration is an important consideration for the clinical application of PRP -gels.
Autologous platelet-rich plasma: a biological supplement to enhance adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell expansion.
TLDR
It is concluded that 20% autologous nPRP is a safe, efficient, and cost-effective supplement for AT-MSC expansion and should be considered as an alternative to FBS or other nonautologous blood derivatives.
Leukocyte-reduced platelet-rich plasma stimulates the in vitro proliferation of adipose-tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells depending on PDGF signaling.
TLDR
The proliferation promoting effect of PRP on ASCs is mediated by PDGF signaling and is associated with c-MYC overexpression.
Platelet and growth factor concentrations in activated platelet-rich plasma: a comparison of seven commercial separation systems
TLDR
The composition of PRP produced by commercially available separation systems was characterized, and the mean PDGF-AB concentration of activated PRP was the highest from JP200, followed by the KYOCERA Medical PRP Kit, Magellan Autologous Platelet Separator System, MyCells, and GLO PRP.
Platelet-Poor and Platelet-Rich Plasma Stimulate Bone Lineage Differentiation in Periodontal Ligament Stem Cells.
TLDR
PRP and PPP showed a similar protein profile and exerted comparable effects on bone differentiation, and further studies are needed to characterize and compare the effects of PPP and PRP on bone healing in vivo.
Platelet-Rich Plasma as an Autologous and Proangiogenic Cell Delivery System
TLDR
The high cell viability together with the 3D capillary-like networks observed at early time points suggests that PRP can be used as an autologous and proangiogenic cell delivery system for the repair of vascularized tissues such as the bone.

TLDR
This review discusses the alternatives to FBS, which rely on human blood-derived components: plasma, serum, umbilical cord blood serum, and platelet derivatives like platelet lysate, and focuses on quality aspects, the latter will be addressed within this review.
