(PRP) or Bone Morphogenic Protein 7 (BMP7) are in the focus of interest. In this study the effects of PRP and BMP7 on the regeneration of avascular meniscal defects were evaluated. In vitro analysis showed that PRP secretes multiple growth factors over a period of 8 days. BMP7 enhances the collagen II deposition in an aggregate culture model of MSCs. However applied to different shaped meniscal ...
