Autologous Platelet Integrated Concentrate (APIC) System is a filtered plasma therapy process that concentrates the master protease inhibitor, Alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M). While A2M is found readily in our blood, it is too large to enter the joint or disc space and is not able to flush out the high presence of enzymes causing degradation and pain for millions of people. With the A2M Injection, we use your own blood to “clean out” the joint and stop cartilage break down as well as prevent further degradation.
Why is an A2M Injection a better solution for Osteoarthritis patients?
An A2M injection contains a concentrated dose 6X more than what already occurs in your blood naturally. When this level of A2M is placed directly into your joint or disc space, it can provide the necessary amount of A2M to bind and remove destructive proteases associated with cartilage cell and tissue breakdown within the joint or disc space.
Does an A2M injection have any other benefits?
Because this injection is derived from your own blood, it employs natural growth factors and bioactive proteins as a physiological agent to promote tissue growth and restoration of the affected joint.
