What is Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)?
This topical treatment uses special PDGF gels that are applied directly to the wound in order to stimulate the body’s own regenerative mechanisms and produce new tissue and blood vessels.
What is this treatment used for?
PDGF is often used to treat such chronic wounds as diabetic foot ulcers.
What are the benefits of PDGF?
Studies are ongoing but have shown PDGF to be effective in the healing of diabetic foot ulcers and helping these wounds to heal faster. Studies are also examining the use of PDGF with other forms of wound therapy such as surgical debridement.
