Optimising platelet secretomes to deliver robust tissue-specific regeneration (2019)
Journal Article
Scully, D., Sfyri, P., Wilkinson, H. N., Acebes‐Huerta, A., Verpoorten, S., Muñoz‐Turrillas, M. C., …Matsakas, A. (2020). Optimising platelet secretomes to deliver robust tissue-specific regeneration. Journal of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, 14(1), 82-98. https://doi.org/10.1002/term.2965

Promoting cell proliferation is the cornerstone of most tissue regeneration therapies. As platelet-based applications promote cell division and can be customised for tissue-specific efficacy, this makes them strong candidates for developing novel reg...

Loss of CD36 protects against diet-induced obesity but results in impaired muscle stem cell function, delayed muscle regeneration and hepatic steatosis (2019)
Journal Article
Verpoorten, S., Sfyri, P., Scully, D., Mitchell, R., Tzimou, A., Mougios, V., …Matsakas, A. (2020). Loss of CD36 protects against diet-induced obesity but results in impaired muscle stem cell function, delayed muscle regeneration and hepatic steatosis. Acta Physiologica, 228(3), https://doi.org/10.1111/apha.13395

Aim: The prevalence of obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases including impaired skeletal muscle regeneration. Since skeletal muscle regenerative capacity is regulated by satellite cells, we aimed to investigate whet...

Current Insights into the Potential Misuse of Platelet-based Applications for Doping in Sports (2019)
Journal Article
Scully, D., & Matsakas, A. (in press). Current Insights into the Potential Misuse of Platelet-based Applications for Doping in Sports. International journal of sports medicine, https://doi.org/10.1055/a-0884-0734

Platelet-based applications are currently used for the delivery of growth factors and other biomolecules as autologous biomaterials in regenerative medicine and cosmetic therapies. Many studies have revealed that platelet-based applications such as p... Read More about Current Insights into the Potential Misuse of Platelet-based Applications for Doping in Sports.

Platelet releasate promotes skeletal myogenesis by increasing muscle stem cell commitment to differentiation and accelerates muscle regeneration following acute injury (2018)
Journal Article
Scully, D., Sfyri, P., Verpoorten, S., Papadopoulos, P., Muñoz-Turrillas, M. C., Mitchell, R., …Matsakas, A. (2019). Platelet releasate promotes skeletal myogenesis by increasing muscle stem cell commitment to differentiation and accelerates muscle regeneration following acute injury. Acta Physiologica, 225(3), https://doi.org/10.1111/apha.13207

Aim The use of platelets as biomaterials has gained intense research interest. However, the mechanisms regarding platelet‐mediated skeletal myogenesis remain to be established. The aim of this study was to determine the role of platelet releasate in...
