BACKGROUND: Platelet lysate (PL) contains a cocktail of growth factors and cytokines that promote tissue repair and regeneration. In vitro studies have shown that PL may affect the reparative function of keratinocytes and fibroblasts, but little is known about the effect of PL on immune cells involved in wound healing. OBJECTIVES: To analyse the effects of PL on T cells involved in the wound repair process. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The effect of PL on T cell proliferation, activation, and cytokine production was measured by ELISA and cytofluorometry and regulatory function based on cytofluorometry and Foxp3 RNA expression. Using an in vitro model of wound healing, we investigated the effect of PL-treated T cells on fibroblast proliferation and production of fibronectin and type-1 collagen as well as keratinocyte migration. RESULTS: PL induced T lymphocyte proliferation and CD69 expression, and promoted a transient upregulation of IFN-γ and TNF-α. However, later on, PL enhanced the number of CD25+ T cells releasing TGF-β and expressing Foxp3 RNA, which was accompanied by a suppression in the level of type 1 cytokines. In the in vitro model, supernatants of PL-treated T cells positively affected the reparative capacity of human keratinocytes and induced fibroblast proliferation and production of fibronectin and type-1 collagen. CONCLUSION: These results indicate that PL temporally regulates T cells during the healing process, enhancing protective cytokines in the early phase, followed by a prominent expansion of TGF-β+ T regulatory cells that promote tissue regeneration and dampen the inflammatory response to prevent excessive tissue damage.

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...

: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is widely used nowadays in different fields of medicine, affecting physiological processes including tissue regeneration. The use of PRP in maxillofacial surgical interventions and its efficiency in the improvement of postoperative wound healing were analysed. Patients undergoing plastic and reconstructive surgeries in the maxillofacial region were recruited: 50 patients were enrolled into a control group (received no PPRP injection) and 50 patients were enrolled int...

AIM: To determine if topical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) results in superior healing rates. METHODS: A systematic review was registered with PROSPERO and performed using PRISMA guidelines. Level I-IV investigations of topical PRP application in DFUs were sought in multiple databases including: MEDLINE, Web of Science, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. The search terms used were "platelet rich plasma", "diabetes", "ulcers", and "wound...

Neuropeptide Y (NPY), a powerful neurotransmitter of the central nervous system, is a key regulator of angiogenesis and biology of adipose depots. Intriguingly, its peripheral vascular and angiogenic powerful activity is strictly associated to platelets, which are source of clinical hemoderivates, such as platelet lysate (PL), routinely employed in several clinical applications as wound healing, and to preserve ex vivo the progenitor properties of the adipose stromal cells pool. So far, the pres...

Background: Leukocyte-poor platelet-rich plasma (LP-PRP) from peripheral blood is currently used as a concentrated source of growth factors to stimulate repair at sites of soft tissue injury. Fibroblasts are primary mediators of wound healing. Thus, we aimed to assess the positive effect of LP-PRP on human fibroblast proliferation in vitro. Methods: LP-PRP was prepared from 49 donors. The fibroblasts were seeded, and at 24 hours after seeding, 1 × 107/10 µL LP-PRP was added once to each well. Th...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous blood product that contains a high concentration of several growth factors. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB is a potential mitogen for human adipose-derived stem cells (hASCs). PRP stimulates proliferation of hASCs; however, the signaling pathways activated by PRP remain unclear. hASCs were cultured with or without PRP or PDGF-BB, and proliferation was assessed. hASCs were also treated with PRP or PDGF-BB with or without imatinib, which is a P...

AbstractAlthough platelets are widely recognized as having a critical role in primary hemostasis and thrombosis, increasing experimental and clinical evidence identifies these enucleated cells as relevant modulators of other physiopathological processes including inflammation and tissue regeneration. These phenomena are mediated through the release of growth factors, cytokines, and extracellular matrix modulators that sequentially promote (i) revascularization of damaged tissue through the induc...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is currently used in different medical fields. The interest in the application of PRP in dermatology has recently increased. It is being used in several different applications as in tissue regeneration, wound healing, scar revision, skin rejuvenating effects, and alopecia. PRP is a biological product defined as a portion of the plasma fraction of autologous blood with a platelet concentration above the baseline. It is obtained from the blood of patients collected befor...

Summary Platelets have various roles in vascular biology and homeostasis. They are the first actor in primary haemostasis and play important roles in thrombosis pathogenesis, but they are also part of innate immunity, which initiates and accelerate many inflammatory conditions. In some contexts, their immune functions are protective, while in others they contribute to adverse inflammatory outcomes. Platelets express numerous receptors and contain hundreds of secretory molecules that are crucial ...

Soluble factors released from platelets can modulate the immune response of leukocytes. We and others have recently found that T lymphocytes with bound platelets have reduced proliferation and IFN-γ and IL-17 production. Thus, we speculate that if we induce the binding of platelets to lymphocytes, we will be able to regulate the inflammatory response. When we cocultured platelets with lymphocytes at different ratios, we were able to increase the percentage of lymphocytes with bound platelets. Th...

Platelets control hemostasis and play a key role in inflammation and immunity. However, platelet function may change during aging, and a role for these versatile cells in many age-related pathological processes is emerging. In addition to a well-known role in cardiovascular disease, platelet activity is now thought to contribute to cancer cell metastasis and tumor-associated venous thromboembolism (VTE) development. Worldwide, the great majority of all patients with cardiovascular disease and so...
