PRP treatment holds great promise for harnessing the body’s natural tissue repair processes
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, in which small amounts of the patient’s own blood are injected to release various growth factors from platelets, is gaining popularity in the modern world, according to news-medical.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has been tracking the procedure since 2015 and has reported a 25 per cent increase in the use of cosmetic PRP over the past four years.
Originally used to treat skin conditions and to develop bone grafting, PRP is finding increasing use in several surgical fields, including plastic surgery. In the US alone, plastic surgeons performed more than 130,000 cosmetic minimally invasive procedures in 2019. Dr Chamata and colleagues reviewed evidence of promising applications of PRP in four key areas: skin rejuvenation, hair growth restoration, PRP with laser treatment, and PRP with fat grafting.
We previously reported that plasma is one of the four basic states of matter and can be created by heating a stable gas or exposing it to a strong electromagnetic field. And, as the new research has shown, plasma flows can kill a coronavirus on surfaces such as metal, skin and plastic in as little as 30 seconds.
Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles used a 3D printer-generated atmospheric pressure plasma jet to treat surfaces infected with SARS-CoV-2.
The city of Rexberg, where the university is located, has one of the highest rates of coronavirus infection in the US. In the US, students at one university are allegedly deliberately infected with the coronavirus in order to get money for blood plasma with antibodies. A private religious university, Brigham Young University in Idaho, is verifying reports that their students did so.
The US Food and Drug Administration has concluded that the benefits of blood plasma transfusions outweigh all sorts of risks The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted permission for the emergency use of investigational blood plasma from COVID-19 over-infected patients to treat hospitalised patients.
The human body is not yet fully understood, but even what is already known is astonishing. And we are not talking about any supernatural capabilities, but rather about quite ordinary facts and figures. It is well known that the human organism consists mainly of water. 60% of it, to be exact. Yes, more than half of us is water – blood, lymph, intercellular fluid. As we age, the percentage of water in the body decreases by 15-20% – this is one of the causes of ageing.
