Abstract

It has been suggested that PRF might possibly have an effect on the immune cells. We considered using the intravenous route to apply PRF in conditions that are caused by an unresolved immune action or connected to allostatic load, implicating an abnormally reacting immune system to obtain a systemic effect that could possibly be an additional tool in treating some of these conditions. These manuscript reports four cases that illustrate the wide variety of conditions where this new technique might be helpful.
