During a chronic injury, damaged tissue can be in an unregulated inflammatory state in which the body’s own stem cells are unable to finish the healing process. In this scenario, allograft tissues can reduce inflammation in order to create a therapeutic environment to allow healing of the area to continue. The tissues used by Calvin Medical are donated from human MSC’s (Mesenchymal Stem Cells) and then purified with a proprietary process that provides a high concentration of growth factors.
Allograft tissues are a supplementary option during a Stem Cell or Platelet Rich Plasma procedure.
Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) / Interleukin-1-Receptor Antagonist Protein (IRAP):
Contained within blood plasma, A2M and IRAP are naturally occurring proteins that lower inflammation and can help to slow cartilage and bone breakdown. A2M and IRAP are obtained during a stem cell or PRP procedure and are an excellent option for patients who experience early degenerative changes with the goal to prevent the progression of arthritis.
Both A2M and IRAP are supplementary options during a Stem Cell or Platelet Rich Plasma procedure.
