Leaving aside the metaphorical choice of words, the blood’s patient, can be the better solution for care of skin wounds.
But let’s step back to understand what we’re talking about when we say wound.
Skin has a crucial role in defense thanks to its self-repairing and self-renewing capacity, acting as an important barrier from the outer environment. A disturbance of the normal anatomic structure and functional integrity of the skin can be described as a wound and his healing is a complicated process mediated by physical, chemical, and cellular processes.
The healing process consist in a series of events that work to produce the formation of new connective tissue, so different from the original one. The process develops in different phasis, preceded by hemostasis and consists of inflammation, proliferation/repair, and remodeling.
The smooth running of this process il fondamental, cause if is interrupted, chronic wounds can appear, on the contrary, with an out control regulation of the processes of inflamation and cells proliferation, the risk is to obtain too much granulation tissue like cheloids.
Despite significant advances in medical care and nutrition, there is a growing need to develop novel strategies to improve cutaneous wound healing.
In human field as well as in veterinary field, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an endogenous therapeutic technology that is gaining interest in regenerative medicine due to its potential to stimulate and accelerate tissue healing
PRP is defined as an autologous biological product derived from the patient’s blood with a platelet concentration higher than that in circulating blood.
The platelets, in wich P.R.P. is rich, release many substances that promote tissue repair and affect the behaviour of others cells modulating inflamation and new formation of vessel.
Platelets infact, play a significant role in mediate the healing ao damaged tissue thanks to his ability to release growth factors involved in the wound healing process , such as
platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF),
epidermal growth factor (EGF),
fibroblast growth factor (FGF),
insulin-like growth factor (IGF1, IGF2),
vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF),
transforming growth factor (TGF-β),
and keratinocyte growth factor (KGF)
Ematik is the completely automatic systemcoè il sistema completamente automatizzato that can meet the needs of veterinarians, not only because is driven in production of the medicament, but olso because ematik gives a final product in a standard process and with a plus.
The system creates a patch made by a gel and a special biopolimeric mixture.
This mixture gives structure, stability and flexbility to the patch that can be applied on to wound, cut if you need, without material losses and durable in time, with controlled release of growth factors.
In veterinary field Ematik represent the first automati system, compact and easy to use to produce a blood derivative, guaranteeing constant yield and quality
At last doing the math, Infine tirando le somme, the high degree of asfety (has no side effects) and good results in literature in many fields of medicine, blood derivativess like PRP seem to be a new promise in terapies involving in tissue regeneration, both in human and animal fields.
