Dental Implantaology – by Arun K. Garg, DMD

Thrombocytes, Or Platelets, are small cytoplasmic fragments of the Mega-karyocyte in bone marrow that enter the circulation as anucleated cells. The lack of a nucleus offers them only a limited life span. Platelets live for roughly seven to 10 days, compared to the red blood cell, an anucleated relative, which lives for about 120 days. The typical concentration of platelets in the blood ranges from 145,000 to 370,000/microliter (mcL).

The basics of the platelet lifecycle are described in Table 1, and a representation of the precursor cells and differentiation processes that occur in the blood are depicted in Image. The platelet is ex¬tremely active metabolically and synthesizes growth factors that it secretes in re¬sponse to clotting.

In an article on the topic entitled "Platelets, Inflammation and Tissue Regeneration," author Alan Nurden notes that the role of platelets actually extends beyond arterial thrombosis and, in fact, plays a much wider role in health and disease.
