Promoting cell proliferation is the cornerstone of most tissue regeneration therapies. As platelet‐based applications promote cell division and can be customised for tissue‐specific efficacy, this makes them strong candidates for developing novel regenerative therapies. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine if platelet releasate could be optimised to promote cellular proliferation and differentiation of specific tissues. Growth factors in platelet releasate were profiled for physiological and supra‐physiological platelet concentrations. We analysed the effect of physiological and supra‐physiological releasate on C2C12 skeletal myoblasts, H9C2 rat cardiomyocytes, human dermal fibroblasts (HDF), HaCaT keratinocytes and chondrocytes. Cellular proliferation and differentiation were assessed through proliferation assays, mRNA and protein expression. We show that supra‐physiological releasate is not simply a concentrated version of physiological releasate. Physiological releasate promoted C2C12, HDF and chondrocyte proliferation with no effect on H9C2 or HaCaT cells. Supra‐physiological releasate induced stronger proliferation in C2C12 and HDF cells compared to physiological releasate. Importantly, supra‐physiological releasate induced proliferation of H9C2 cells. The proliferative effects of skeletal and cardiac muscle cells were in part driven by VEGFα. Furthermore, supra‐physiological releasate induced differentiation of H9C2 and C2C12, HDF and keratinocyte differentiation. This study provides insights into the ability of releasate to promote muscle, heart, skin and cartilage cell proliferation and differentiation and highlights the importance of optimising releasate composition for tissue‐specific regeneration.

BACKGROUND: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a blood fraction that contains high concentrations of several growth factors. PRP has been recently used in skin wound healing and rejuvenation. However, the precise molecular mechanisms underlying PRP-induced wound healing are unknown. AIMS: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of PRP on extracellular matrix remodeling, which requires the activation of dermal fibroblasts. METHODS: Cell proliferation and migration assay, enzyme-linked immunosorbent a...

Cellular senescence can be broadly defined as a stable, but essentially irreversible, loss of proliferative capacity. Historically, senescence has been described as a negative outcome of advanced cellular age. It is now clear, however, that senescence represents a dynamic autonomous stress response, integral to long-term tumor suppression. Transient induction of a senescent phenotype has actually been suggested to promote regeneration in both liver and skin. Here, we explored the role of senesce...

Platelet-based applications are currently used for the delivery of growth factors and other biomolecules as autologous biomaterials in regenerative medicine and cosmetic therapies. Many studies have revealed that platelet-based applications such as platelet-rich plasma and platelet releasate exhibit beneficial biological effects after a sports injury or trauma when administered locally by intramuscular injections. At present, treatment of the public, patients and athletes with platelet-based app...

Aim: The use of platelets as biomaterials has gained intense research interest. However, the mechanisms regarding platelet-mediated skeletal myogenesis remain to be established. The aim of this study was to determine the role of platelet releasate in skeletal myogenesis and muscle stem cell fate in vitro and ex vivo respectively. Methods: We analysed the effect of platelet releasate on proliferation and differentiation of C2C12 myoblasts by means of cell proliferation assays, immunohistochemistr...

Background. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been shown to be a promising therapeutic agent against osteoarthritis (OA), whereas its chondroprotection mechanism is not fully elucidated. Autophagy is considered an important biological process throughout the development of OA. Therefore, the objective of the present study is to investigate the role of autophagy in the chondroprotection and compare the effects of releasate between L-PRP and P-PRP. Methods. PRP were prepared from rat blood. Rat chondr...

: Platelet-based applications such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet releasate have gained unprecedented attention in regenerative medicine across a variety of tissues as of late. The rationale behind utilizing PRP originates in the delivery of key cytokines and growth factors from α-granules to the targeted area, which in turn act as cell cycle regulators and promote the healing process across a variety of tissues. The aim of the present review is to assimilate current experimental evi...

Abstract Autologous thrombocyte concentrate lysates as platelet-released growth factors (PRGF) or Vivostat Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF ® ) represent important tools in modern wound therapy, especially in the treatment of chronic, hard-to-heal or infected wounds. Nevertheless, underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms of the beneficial clinical effects of a local wound therapy with autologous thrombocyte concentrate lysates are poorly understood. Recently, we have demonstrated that PRGF induces ...

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis (OA) has been widely investigated, but the mechanisms are still unclear. Exosomes that serve as carriers of genetic information have been implicated in many diseases and are known to participate in many physiological processes. Here, we investigate the therapeutic potential of exosomes from human embryonic stem cell-induced mesenchymal stem cells (ESC-MSCs) in alleviating osteoarthritis (OA). Exosomes were harvested from conditioned culture media ...

Cell-cell adhesion molecules play key roles in maintaining quiescence or promoting activation of various stem cells in their niche. Muscle stem cells called satellite cells (SC) are critical for skeletal muscle regeneration after injury, but little is known about the role of adhesion molecules in regulating the behavior of these stem cells. Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) is a cell-cell adhesion protein expressed on quiescent and activated SC whose function is unknown in this context....

Psoriasis is a frequent and often severe inflammatory skin disease, characterized by altered epidermal homeostasis. Since we found previously that Akt/mTOR signaling is hyperactivated in psoriatic skin, we aimed at elucidating the role of aberrant mTORC1 signaling in this disease. We found that under healthy conditions mTOR signaling was shut off when keratinocytes switch from proliferation to terminal differentiation. Inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, IL-17A, TNF-α) induced aberrant mTOR activity ...

The prospect of ovarian rejuvenation offers the tantalising prospect of treating age-related declines in fertility or in pathological conditions such as premature ovarian failure. The concept of ovarian rejuvenation was invigorated by the indication of the existence of oogonial stem cells (OSCs), which have been shown experimentally to have the ability to differentiate into functional follicles and generate oocytes; however, their clinical potential remains unknown. Furthermore, there is now gro...

NEW FINDINGS What is the central question of this study? What is the impact of obesity-independent hyperlipidaemia on skeletal muscle stem cell function of ApoE-deficient (ApoE-/- ) mice? What is the main finding and its importance? Compromised muscle stem cell function accounts for the impaired muscle regeneration in hyperlipidaemic ApoE-/- mice. Importantly, impaired muscle regeneration is normalised by administration of platelet releasate. ABSTRACT Muscle satellite cells are important stem ce...

Abstract Platelet derived bio-products in the form of platelet rich plasma, plasma rich in growth factors, or plasma-free platelet releasates, are being studied worldwide with the aim of proving their efficacy in tissue regeneration within many different clinical areas, such as traumatology, maxillofacial surgery, ophthalmology, dermatology and otorhinolaryngology, amongst others. The current lack of consensus in the preparation method and application form, or in the quality assessment of each b...
