GFC (Growth Factor Concentrate) therapy is the latest innovative non-surgical alternative. It is a pure, highly safe and concentrated preparation engineered from using a person's own blood for superior results.
Various Growth Factors such as PDGF (Platelet-derived Growth Factor), TGF-β(Transforming Growth Factor), VEGF (Vascular endothelial Growth Factor), EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1) etc. are stored in our platelets.These Growth Factors are involved in tissue regeneration, tissue repair and stem cell migration, differentiation and proliferation.
Wockhardt's scientists have been able to extract these Growth Factors at high concentration as GFC in a specially designed Wockhardt's GFC therapy kits.
This GFC is administered at the site of requirement as per indications. Thus, delivering patient's own Growth Factors at high concentration right at the intended site.
