This review shows platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) as an enhancer of the histological characteristics of the tissues with platelet-derived growth factor receptors. A review has been made of the literature on the platelet-rich plasma published in PubMed. The article describes the cellular biology of PRP, the technique for obtaining it, and its clinical applications.

Keywords : Platelet-rich plasma; Growth Factors; Biostimulation.
