Succesful symposium in Nottwil (CH)
Begining of March a scientific symposium took place at the Pain Centre of the Swiss Paraplegic Centre in Nottwil (SPZ) in Switzerland. Invasive treatments of chronic pain, as well as transcutaneous applications of PRF were discussed.
Remarkable was the outcome of a basic researchproject that was performed in Brazil by dr. Brasil, that showed a clear balancing effect of PRF on oxidative stress in cells. It may be the first step of defining the mode of action of PRF.
Also, dr. Eveline Kuip, an oncologist at the Radboud University, spoke about cancer and the immune system and about a basic research project at her University that showed a transition of immune cells as a result of PRF.
Prof. Menno Sluijter talked about inflammation and oxidative stress and the effect of transcutaneous PRF on these mechanisms (also known as RedoxPRF). Both him and dr. Alexandre Teixeira showed case studies of patients treated with transcutaneous PRF.
It was a very interesting congress, where good scientific discussions took place and valuable connections were made.
The next congress will take place in February / March 2021
