Last weekend was the bti (BioTechnology Institute) day 2015 which took place at the Royal College of Physicians, London. Dr Eduardo Anitua the founder of bti and pioneer of PRGF (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors) Technology was here to talk about some of the latest studies and innovations from the institute. PRGF is an evolution from PRP’s in the use of blood plasma to help regenerate and accelerate the bodies healing processes. Dr Anitua is the main figure in refining the protocols to isolate and concentrate the blood proteins in which to effectively use in oral surgery to stimulate the tissue regeneration process by applying autologous proteins. The benefits of PRGF being faster healing, less swelling to the patient and giving you a better alternative then using bio materials.
