Success in periodontal regeneration through guided tissue regeneration relies on the healing capacity of the host tissue. Platelet preparations are mitogenic and stimulate regeneration through high growth factor levels. Here we assessed collagen barrier membranes (CBM) as carriers for the secretome of activated platelets. We evaluated cell-attachment, the release of the secretome, and cell proliferation.Secretome of washed platelets (washed PSEC) and unw...

The switch from a cartilage template to bone during endochondralossification of the growth plate requires dynamic and close interaction between the cartilage and the developing vascular structures. Vascular invasion of hypertrophic cartilage, with blood vessels coming from the bone collar, serves to bring in osteoblast- andendothelial precursor cells along with chondroclasts and their precursors into future ossification centres of the growth plate.Potent...
