Author: Dhillon et al

Abstract
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has clearly emerged offering a possible solution that could modify the disease process and offer symptomatic relief in early osteoarthritis of knee. Great efforts are underway to improve PRP products for use in knee osteoarthritis (OA). Upcoming research is focused on the ideal PRP type, dose, frequency of injection and mode of injection. The combination of PRP with biocompatible carriers/scaffolds like gelatin hydrogel and chitosan appear to be promising based on early in vitro and animal studies. PRP in combination with hyaluronate has also emerged to have synergistic and additive effects. This article intends to review the recent trends and advancing ideas for improvising PRP for use in early knee OA treatment.
