PRP Approved For Treatment of Chronic Non-Healing Diabetic Wounds

Huge news for the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) world was just released. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposes that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) – an autologous blood-derived product, will be covered only for the treatment of chronic non-healing diabetic, venous and/or pressure wounds.

This is great news for potential PRP injection patients, PRP Treatments, PRP doctors and clinics and companies such as Cytomedix (CMXI).

We will be covering this story and updating THIS POST as more news comes out.

Update: CMXI stock has risen huge amounts since this news.  A few months back it was .30 cents and now sits at $1.82 per share – it’s still on the rise.
