Defects in articular cartilage can induce osteoarthritis by causing molecular changes in the synovial fluid. Research in molecular biology discovered the major inducer of osteoarthritis was the general inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 (IL-1) which plays a key role in accelerating tissue destruction and the repair mechanisms.

 

In a healthy joint, IL-1 and interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) are in balanced concentrations.

In cases of osteoarthritis, there is not sufficient IL-1Ra produced to block the destructive effects of the increased IL-1. The result is inflammation, joint pain, and eventually cartilage destruction.

 

In the Arthrex-ABPS, monocytes (a type of white blood cell) bind to the glass beads. The cells are then stimulated to produce regenerative and anti-inflammatory proteins without the addition of drugs. This process takes place over an incubation period of 24 hours. 

 

 

 

 

The Arthrex-ABPS consists of a dual port, tubular device containing glass beads that maximize the surface area inside the device.

 

Blood that has been incubated in this unique device can be separated to produce autologous serum useful at the point of care. Because the serum is derived from the animals own blood, the possibility of adverse allergic or anaphylactic side effects is drastically reduced.

 

 

 

The serum produced by the Arthrex-ABPS is autologous, which reduces potential side effects or complications associated with other treatment methods.

Blood processing using the Arthrex-ABPS device produces serum containing anti-inflammatory and anti degenerative compounds. The newly designed Arthrex-ABPS device increases the concentration levels of the beneficial factors in the autologous serum.

   

 

     

Autologous blood products have created a growing interest for use in a number of orthopaedic therapies.

The healing effects of plasma are supported by growth factors released by platelets.

These growth factors induce a healing process wherever they are applied.

   

 

   

More affordable, easier to use, and quicker procedure

 

 

Requires only 10cc of patient‘s blood

 

In vitro research has shown statistically improved tenocyte, chondrocyte, and osteoblast proliferation when cultured with ACP vs. controls.

 

The ACP system does not concentrate inflammatory white or red blood cells, which can negatively interfere with the healing process.blood recovery from the patient.

 

   

 

   

Outside the bloodstream, platelets become activated and release proliferative and morphogenic proteins. These growth factors are known to be relevant for healing in a variety of tissue types including bone, tendon, cartilage and skin.

 

The actions include: -

- Induce proliferation and differentiation of various cell types (e.g., stem cell, osteoblast, epidermal cells)

- Enhance/modulate production of collagen, proteoglycan and Tissue Inhibitor of Metallo Proteinases (TIMP)

- Stimulate angiogenesis

- Chemotaxis
