    This is the same doctor that pioneered the Platelet Rich Plasma therapy that AJ received. The great results that he reported has had virtually no one being able to duplicate his success. This is very well explained by the fact that HIS injections included (besides the PRP) various concoctions of HGH, anabolic steroids and other PEDs. Tiger and A-Rod were only some of the high profile sports figures that had the "fortune" of Dr. Galea's personal touch. :cool:

    Setting aside the hGH and steroids, what are your thoughts on PRP? Is it just a good idea that didn't work without the extra substances, or is it total fraud?

    Is this a known fact or speculation?

    Dr. Galea's mixture of PRP and HGH, (and other substances actually even including testosterone) or separate injections temporally related, is part of what the feds state that they have proof.

    Clinically or histologically (microscopic examiniation of the tissues) there has never been affirmation that PRP significantly improves healing. Also funny is that, speaking to mixing the HGH into the local injections, HGH has no LOCAL effects. The effects are gained only after absorbtion into the blood on a SYSTEMIC level. All the evidence points to Galea's scheme as simply a disengenuous delivery sytem solely for hiding the administration of certain substances.
