In the current study, we screened the effects of different concentrations of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) on the mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) proliferation and differentiation. Our data demonstrated that concentrated PRP exerted different effects on cell proliferation and on the osteogenic, adipogenic, and chondrogenic differentiation of human bone marrow-derived MSCs. Meanwhile, we optimized PRP concentrations for each of these lineage differentiation and MSC expansion and, thus, suggested several promising clinical strategies for different kinds of diseases. These findings may help explain the controversial effects of PRP on MSCs and improve the progress in precise applications of PRP-based regenerative strategies.
