- Purpose: The purpose of this study was to modify the method of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) preparation for obtaining optimal angiogenic potential and accelerate bone healing. Also, the potential synergistic effect of a suboptimal concentration of bone morphogenic protein-2 (BMP-2) and modified PRP (mPRP) on bone healing was evaluated in vivo. Materials and Methods: The angiogenic factor-enriched PRP, which included peripheral blood mononuclear cells (mostly lymphocytes and monocytes, excluding polymorphonuclear leukocytes [PMNs], was achieved by lowering concentrations of thrombin and CaCl 2, after pre-activation with shear stress using a table-top vortex machine and collagen. In vitro, endothelial cell migration activity in the mPRP group was compared to conventional PRP preparation using a modified Boyden chamber assay. In an animal study, PGA scaffold, PGA scaffold + mPRP, PGA scaffold + mPRP + rhBMP-2, and PGA scaffold + rhBMP-2 were applied to critical-sized calvarial defects in 28 nude rats. At 2 weeks, periosteal blood flow was measured using laser Doppler perfusion imaging, and bone formation was evaluated at 8 weeks by histology, dual energy x-ray absorptiometry, and micro-computed tomography. Results: mPRP induced faster migration of cord blood-derived outgrowth endothelial-like cells. In vivo, the group with mPRP with a low dose of rhBMP-2 showed significantly increased numbers of blood vessels at 2 weeks and notable synergistic effect on bone healing at 8 weeks as evaluated with histology, bone mineral density and bone mineral content, and pCT. Conclusion: The mPRP used in this study improved vascular perfusion around the defect and resulted in enhanced bone healing. Also, combining mPRP with a suboptimal dosage of rhBMP-2 improved bone formation and enhanced bone density.
