Autologous dermal fibroblast graft is an important therapy in skin defect repair, but in vitro skin cell culture is mandatory in most cases. However, cell expansion using xenogeneic/allogenic culture media presents some disadvantages, such as the risk of infection transmission. We demonstrated that an autologous culture system with the patient's own platelet-rich plasma is an efficient, cost-effective, and safe supplement for fibroblast culture. As it respects the good manufacturing practices and regulatory agencies standards, it should be considered as a potent alternative and substitute to xenogeneic or allogenic blood derivatives for the validation of future clinical protocols using in vitro cell expansion.
