Study: Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) for lichen sclerosus

2015: The Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders in the US is undertaking some research into platelet-rich plasma for speeding up healing of tissues damaged in lichen sclerosus.

PRP is a platelet concentrate used for improved healing without side effects for a range of conditions (diabetic foot ulcers, muscle and tendon injuries, cosmetic surgery).

The PRP works using proteins that assist wounds to heal. There is a vast array of studies on PRP that show there is almost no risk of scarring. PRP is made from your own blood, so allergies are non-existent.

Fifteen women have been enrolled in the study. The study includes four visits to the clinic over 14 weeks, with the vulvas of the women injected with PRP twice during the study period. No other treatments are allowed during the study period.
