Abstract: Background/aim: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) application has gained widespread interest for musculoskeletal injuries. Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs are frequently used in sports medicine before and/or after PRP application. Our study seeks to determine whether serum levels of platelet-derived growth factor-AB (PDGF-AB) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) levels of PRP would be affected by nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs. Materials and methods: Two different final concentrations of diclofenac (0.5 µg mL–1 and 2.5 µg mL–1), meloxicam (0.8 µg mL–1 and 2.0 µg mL–1), and acetylsalicylic acid (final concentration 450 µm) were obtained in separate tubes with PRPs prepared from 20 healthy male volunteers. Medicine-free PRP was the control group. Growth factors were measured using ELISA. Results: PDGF-AB and VEGF serum levels did not change with diclofenac, meloxicam, or acetylsalicylic acid addition. PDGF-AB and VEGF serum levels correlated with each other. Conclusion: Diclofenac, meloxicam, and acetylsalicylic acid did not affect PDGF-AB and VEGF serum levels.
