SELPHYL®

What is SELPHYL®?
The SELPHYL® System is a kit that allows your doctor to rapidly and safely prepare PRFM in a medical office.

How is PRFM different from PRP?
PRP, by definition is platelets and plasma, where the platelet concentration is generally considered to be twice the normal. PRP should have little to no red blood cells and white blood cells. By adding the precise amount of calcium chloride, the SELPHYL® System can convert the liquid PRP into PRFM, a gel-like matrix. This occurs because the calcium chloride initiates the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, as part of the clotting cascade. The fibrin matrix serves as a three dimensional scaffold to maintain the platelets at the site of injection.

The main advantages and benefits of PFRM include: SELPHYL®
– High degree of purity
– Reproducibility of the treatment
– Confidence in knowing exactly what is being injected
– Safety profile

SELPHYL® SCIENCE
The SELPHYL® System is only available through qualified healthcare practitioners for the safe and rapid collection of autologous PRP, using a small amount of a patient’s own blood. The SELPHYL® System is a kit that allows the healthcare practitioner to rapidly and safely prepare PRFM at the patient point of care. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform in a healthcare practitioner’s office. The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the desired outcome, and the healthcare practitioner’s treatment plan. As a stand-alone therapy, many physicians recommend a series of one to three injection sessions spaced from four weeks apart for optimal results. The longevity of the results of SELPHYL® treatments vary based on the extent of the procedure, areas treated, and number of sessions.

Unlike other products that are acidic (low pH), SELPHYL® has close to physiologic pH. There may be some temporary discomfort during the injections, and occasional redness and bruising immediately following the treatment that resolves quickly. Physicians have been using SELPHYL® to prepare PRFM for a number of applications. There are published studies that document how physicians have used PRFM to address various other medical specialties.

How Selphyl® Works?

The SELPHYL® System is available exclusively through qualified healthcare practitioners for the safe and rapid collection of autologous PRP, using a small amount of your own blood.

How long does the procedure take?
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform in your doctor’s office.

How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the desired outcome, and your doctor’s treatment plan. As a stand-alone therapy, many physicians recommend a series of one to three injection sessions spaced from four to six weeks apart for optimal results.

Is the treatment painful?
Unlike other products that are acidic (low pH), SELPHYL® has close to physiologic pH. There may be some temporary discomfort during the injections, and occasional redness and bruising immediately following the treatment that resolves quickly.

Are there any side effects?
There have been no known side effects reported to date. Some patients may experience some mild irritation, swelling, bruising, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection sites. These are temporary conditions and typically resolve within two days.

How long does it last?
The longevity of the results of SELPHYL® treatments vary based on the extent of the procedure, areas treated, and number of sessions.

Can anyone be allergic to SELPHYL®?
There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction and no allergic reactions have been reported to date. The SELPHYL® System is used to rapidly collect and isolate a patient’s own PRP for injection and contains no animal or synthetic products.
