Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) Injection


 

Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) Injection

  • Over the past 5 years, interest in A2M has grown as a potential treatment to help protect cartilage against post traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). After a knee injury like an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, studies show that the cartilage of the knee commonly is also damaged and results in early onset of PTOA in the knee joint.
  • A2M has been shown in studies to suppress degenerative inflammation by neutralizing cartilage damaging enzymes and possibly reduce progression of arthritis (PTOA) after a knee injury.
  • A2M can be found in blood, and by concentrating A2M from your blood, A2M can then be injected into the damaged joint where the A2M is a powerful inhibitor of cartilage catabolic factors and it helps stop the progression of cartilage breakdown and preventing further cartilage loss.
