Wrinkles result from imperfect repair of the dermal layer resulting in loss of collagen commonly due to ageing, smoking and sun exposure. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) contains a host of growth factors, which have been used in other clinical trials for various medical conditions such as tendonitis, and also in surgery such as the surgical repair of facial defects. Results from these clinical trials suggest that PRP helps in collagen formation and organisation to promote healing of tissues. This study attempts to document the clinical effects of intradermal injection of PRP on wrinkles.

Condition Intervention Phase
Wrinkles Device: MyCells® (injection of platelet rich plasma) Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 1 Study of Intradermal Injection of Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma for Facial Wrinkles

Further study details as provided by Novena Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total Wrinkle Length [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    All visible wrinkles are measured and the length is summed up to give the Total Wrinkle Length. Comparison of pre treatment and post treatment Total Wrinkle Length will be studied.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Side effect / Adverse Event [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Side Effects / Adverse Events to be monitored include allergic reaction, nerve injury and cavernous sinus thrombosis.

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: February 2010
Study Completion Date: May 2012
Primary Completion Date: February 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: MyCells® (injection of platelet rich plasma)
    PRP contains at least 1,000,000 platelets per mm3 or 2-6 times the native concentration of whole blood at a pH of 6.5 to 6.7
    Other Name: MyCells autologous platelet preparation system
Detailed Description:
10 selected participants will have 10 ml of blood removed for platelet extraction with MyCells®. The resulting Platelet rich plasma will be injected intradermally into the facial wrinkles.
