On Nov 26, 2009 pioneering physicians from around the world will meet in London to form a consensus statement on the use of complex growth factors to treat muscle & tendon injuries. The UKA or United Kingdom Athletics is the national governing body for athletics, including the Olympics & Paralympics.
Dr Steven Sampson was invited to participate to share clinical experience with PRP. After the symposium, hopefully a consensus statement will be published. PRP has seen increased use in professional sport. Having meetings like this is paramount to advance our understanding of the potential role for growth factors & biologics in sport.
